comment What are the possible interpretations of 1 John 2:19?
Anyway, I think this is a great answer. So would a conditional security friendly paraphrase of the passage be something like: They went out from us, but they left the faith and were not of us anymore. Because if they were still of us, they would have remained with us, but they left so that it would be revealed that they left the faith.

What I actually meant was that CS laypeople often hold the "whoopsie" position. Edited my comment to clarify

Regarding common CS positions, I'd agree that the doctrinal stance among CS teachers usually (but not always) tends towards what you described. But the "whoopsie, where'd that salvation go" view is pretty common (in my experience) among CS laypeople. I've known a lot of people who have been under the impression that if they sin, they lose their salvation until they can ask forgiveness (ask someone whether suicide is a mortal sin, and this view comes out). Perhaps the conception of these people is what the ES folks are targeting.

Thanks - so if I understand, the "would have" in the NASB is not necessarily supported by the Greek?

comment What is the difference between “righteous” and “just” in the NT?
@swasheck, here it is: christianity.stackexchange.com/a/6894/971. I don't think you were unclear. After I read it a second time, I wasn't sure how I had come to the conclusion I had... Also, you should be able to see the full original question (which includes your quote) in the edit history.

Based on @Mallioch's answer, I think I misinterpreted what swasheck wrote. Rephrased the answer accordingly.
