There is one key Bible verse that proves that no one that makes the claim that they were once a Christian ever was.  In  1 John 2:19, states that anyone that leaves the Christian community does so because they were never part of the Christian community.  The purpose of the verse is to show that those who leave do so to expose they were never a Christian.  Christian is one that would always persevere to the end.  Therefore, when someone says they were once a Christian they are admitting that they have left what they cannot leave.  Thus, they were never a Christian, they were only a hypocrite that stopped pretending.
