I am doing a study on this question, Is it possible for a Christian to apostatize? I want to study it in Logos. How can it be done?

Type "apostasy" in Factbook and go from there.

Searching my Logos for "apostas* NEAR Christian " nets me 3724 hits. That may be a bit much, but its a wellspring from which to start. 

I would start with the Factbook.

Anything we might be able to help with?

May I assume that you have successfully read https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25apostasy? There is also https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=ct.Apostasy.

You might also find https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25excommunication and https://ref.ly/logos4/Factbook?ref=bk.%25schism helpful.

You could also run a Topic Guide on "apostasy".

Please use descriptive thread titles to attract helpful posts & save others time. Thanks!

Look up "perseverance" in your systematic theologies. Most will have a chapter or at least section on it, and they will refer you to the relevant Bible verses. If you have the "Theology Guide" tool, it is covered under the heading "The Permanence of Salvation."

Christian Alexander:
have been having problems with Factbook.

Have you collapsed all sections and tried opening one at a time.

  1. Open Factbook
  2. Hover on a section bar
  3. Open the section bar menu (3 dots on right)
  4. Select "Collapse all"
  5. Now try to open 1 section.
