It’s “apostatize”, not “apostacize”

This may be the shortest article I’ve ever posted. It concerns the misspelling of a word that is being used with increasing frequency in evangelical circles. Much is being said these days about apostasy or the falling away of certain formerly professing Christians. In an article I read today, once again it referred to people who “apostacize". In one sentence he writes, “Years before a man or woman apostacizes . . .”

Please note that the proper spelling is “apostatize” and “apostatizes". I know it looks and sounds a little weird. But I can’t help that.
