Confusion reigns when attempting to determine if a person's admitted reasons for adopting a different religion has basis in a true change of beliefs, versus choosing to accept the need for true repentence and praying for salvation in the name of the Jewish Savior. By seeking repentence and asking for forgiveness in teh Name of Yeshua, HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, a true change of heart is the expected result; it is forever in its action.
That being said, if one does not have that true change of heart, then futility of attempting being Christian does sometimes result; and unless the change of heart comes in truth and faith, the potential of reversion is real.
Only the Holy Spirit knows then until there is the incontrovertible evidence that becomes the witness of faith.
It is a said thing if the witness turns it around and faith is lost; along with the person losing more than faith.
