Among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander by John Samson via Effectual Grace

[S]ome people look at the verses in 1 Timothy 1:18-20 and say that if Hymenaeus and Alexander once had faith, but now have shipwrecked it, we must conclude that one can lose true faith in Christ. How would you respond to this claim?
