The Term Fall Away

Sometimes we hear people use the term “fall away” in church, referring to those who left church. I think that is not a suitable term because maybe, they went to another church. Since we do not proclaim that we are the only true church, we should not judge another church. This means we should not say much on whether they fell away, wondered away or still faithful to God. The more appropriate term we should use is they are no longer a member of our church. I think we learnt this before, just that we can forget about it. 🙂
