    Backsliding quotes by:    

The Christian life is very much like climbing a hill of ice. You cannot slide up. You have to cut every step with an ice axe. Only with incessant labor in cutting and chipping can you make any progress. If you want to know how to backslide, leave off going forward. Cease going upward and you will go downward of necessity. You can never stand still.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon

Backsliding, generally first begins with neglect of private prayer.

    Author: J.C. Ryle

Men fall in private long before they fall in public.

    Author: J.C. Ryle

Those who fall away have never been thoroughly imbued with the knowledge of Christ but only had a slight and passing taste of it.

    Author: John Calvin

There is only one way to be revived and healed from our backslidings so that we may become fruitful even in old age. We must take a steady look at the glory of Christ in His special character, in His grace and work, as shown to us in the Scripture.

    Author: John Owen
    Source: Meditation on the Glory of Christ, 1684, ch. 16.
