Hebrews 6: 4-6


Hebrews92

HEBREWS away.

  • This passage has been interpreted in four ways:

  • that the danger of a Christian losing his

  • salvation is described, a view rejected because

  • of biblical assurances that salvation is

  • a work of God which cannot be reversed;

  • (2) that the warning is against mere profession

  • of faith short of salvation, or tasting

  • but not really partaking of salvation

  • (The New Scofield Reference Bible, p. 1315);

Hebrews93

HEBREWS away.

(3) that hypothetically if a Christian could

lose his salvation, there is no provision

for repentance (The Ryrie Study Bible, p. 1843);

(4) that a warning is given of the danger

of a Christian moving from a position

of true faith and life to the extent of becoming

disqualified for further service (1 Cor 9:27)

and for inheriting millennial glory.
