Backslider means “rebel”.
Only a Christian can become a backslider.
Once repeated attempts have been made to convert you back to Jesus Christ and you have continued to choose not to return, you are in a condition called “backslidden”. You have returned to Satan as your lord and master. Jesus reveals His heart wanting you to come back to Him in a parable of the “prodigal” son. Luke
19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;
20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
