That wouldn't be possible if the Bible actually teaches that :2c:

Ross:
Is this man one of those who claims to know Christ but is actually not " In " Christ?

Many will come and say that He is the Christ, but Christ NEVER knew them.

Don't know. But I think the main question of the OP is abaout teh change of heart of the man. (?)

That statement about (former) believers of all denominations.
For me it means that Jesus never knew Christians who in all sorts of ways acted/believed contrary to His teachings.
- Eternal hell.
- All people get judged the same.
- Love your neighbor (if from the same denomination)
- Use Christianity as leverage for political goals.
- Etc

 those to whom Jesus says,I never knew you...are the stranger......if Jesus never knew them..they never knew Jesus either.Oneness/intimacy..requires a 'knowing'

  but another thing..Jesus is Lord of the dead and the living....dead branches in the vine are pruned here on earth..and found alive in heaven[prodigal that

  was dead declared alive by Father,with rejoicing]. All mankind,dead branches as well as live and/or fruit bearing are in deVine/Christ.Father does'prune' the dead

  branches..just as an axe is at the tree. Fostering spiritual growth in this earth..is Father's business....He will remove you from this earth..when spiritual

  advancement doesn't come.....and finish your training in heaven [if need be]

    Unregenerated Adam is pruned so that the new man[sprout] in Christ may come forth and bear fruit[SOS 6;11]  Christ inspecting spiritual growth

That's what I was wondering after I posted this.  Maybe he only stated a sort of faith, but was never truly spiritually reborn.  Not for me to say, but it's apparently possible to be the case for some.
