That is a big claim, a claim of defiance. Many atheists use to be "Christian" did they somehow lose the knowledge of God?
Maybe they generated their own faith to begin with....

I agree somewhat or maybe they were told to go to the front of the church and say these magic words and walla you are saved and now you will have a better life. The scripture speaks of this, they never came to Him rightly to begin with for if they did then they would stay.

Exactly...i've seen many like that in the course of 20+ years, it seems like they do it for the wrong reasons.....as for me, i kept pushing it away until finally the burden God put on my heart was to much and i talked to HIM in my barracks one night and experienced a total change....it was amazing....i wanted that feeling to stay with me...my first prayer to God that night before i went to sleep was "Don't let me wake up, i don't want to screw up"......

No, I am from the beautiful, sunny state of Florida...born in Tampa, on McDill Air Force Base...my dad was in the Air Force in the war....my grandpa was in the Army...I love our Soldiers, and support them in every way I can. My great, great, great, great, great uncle is John Quincey Adams...I have "warrior" blood in my veins!...
