"THEN THE LORD OPENED UP THEIR UNDERSTANDING
THAT THEY MIGHT UNDERSTAND THE SCRIPTURES." Luke 24:45
APOSTASY: a forsaking or renouncing of religion,
either by an open declaration in words, or a virtual declaration of it by our actions.
The primitive Christian church distinguished several kinds of apostasy;
the first, of those who went entirely from Christianity to Judaism;
the second, of those who compiled so far with the Jews, as to communicate with them in many of their unlawful practices,
without making a formal profession of their religion;
thirdly, of those who mingled Judaism and Christianity together (Judeo-Christianity);
and fourthly, of those who voluntarily relapsed into paganism.
Apostasy may be further considered as,
1. Original, in which we have all participated. (Rom 3:23)
2. National, when a kingdom relinquishes the profession of Christianity.
