Just as you can tell when your physical health is failing, there are symptoms or danger signals which warn us that things aren't as they ought to be! J. Curtis Manor lists ten warnings signals to watch for in regard to backsliding.

These danger signals are early symptoms of the various aspects and developmental phases of worldliness, a malignity far more deadly than cancer. Early diagnosis and intensive treatment are of the utmost importance. Should any of these warning signals be detected, it should receive immediate attention.

This stubborn ailment has been known to respond favorably to massive ingestion of Bible study, combined with regular and sustained attendance at worship assemblies and committed involvement in teaching, visitation and personal service, supplemented by increased exercise of prayer and sacrifice.
