The pilgrims traverse the last bit of Enchanted Ground watchful by discoursing about why Ignorance fears the fear of God to the point of stifling it & what is a right fear of God and how may we know it. This reminds Christian of Temporary who, like Ignorance, turned from the fear of God back into his sinful ways (1Pet 2.22). This gives way to a discussion on why it is that so many people’s faith is only temporary, what were the causes of Temporary’s turning back, what are the 9 steps in the process toward backsliding, and how do we prevent backsliding. May God bless His Word.
