Well said. And supposedly Christian people became infidels even after 
reading the Bible. There are people who saw visions from heaven --like 
the Israelites of the Exodus time-- but they relapsed and became 
backsliders, choosing to worship a golden calf.

The rule of Isaiah 8:20 still stands today.

 And one by one crept silently to Rest.
