    I apologize for nosing in but these verses used to give me fits until I learned the truth. They are commonly taken out of context and have confused many!

    Paul is not talking to saved but the unsaved here. He had a real problem during this writting with Orthodox Jewish infiltrators into the church.

    These spies would claim to believe in the gospel and participate in believing in Jesus but on the sly, would tell others that to be saved they must come back to the Temple and participated in sacrifices.

    Paul was explaining this to the real Christians, that it is impossible to fall away. This is one of the greatest supports for "Once Saved Always Saved."
    It's not a matter of God pulling away ( he said he would never leave) but it is we who let our fleshy desires get in the way.

    Paul was talking about those, in their mits, that weren't saved in the first place......these verses have put many a person into bondage of untruth!
    " I'll see you here or I will see you up there or I will see you in the air"!.....Beam me up , Lord!

    Heb 10:26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, Heb 10:27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Heb 10:28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Heb 10:29 How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? Heb 10:30 For we know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge his people." Heb 10:31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Heb 10:32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering. Heb 10:33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. Heb 10:34 You sympathized with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. Heb 10:35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. Heb 10:36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. Heb 10:37 For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay. Heb 10:38 But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him." Heb 10:39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.

    Heb is wrote by unknown from what I know
    "Once Saved Always Saved."theory is commonly taken out of context and have confused many!

    This is what makes our God unique above all others, in that he, in his devine and "perfect" wisdom created a path for us to be perfect and in his presence. Absolute perfection can not coexist with imperfection. The ancients knew and feared this since the time of Exodus. Look at Exodus 33: 18-23.

    About the 3rd or 4th time that Moses had paid God a visit on Mt. Sinai, he just couldn't stand it any more and he asked God to show him his glory. This is the time that God made one of his famous quotes about himself: "No man can see my face and live".

    The ancients feared this so much that the Highest Priest in the Temple; the only one who went into the innermost "Holy of Holies" during the 'Day of Atonement"....had a rope tied around his foot. This was just in case that if he died while behind the veil, he could be pulled out with out causing some other poor soul to perish.

    Then look what Pauls says towards the end of the well known "Love Chapter in 1 COR 13:
    8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

    This is when we die and go before God and we will finally see him "face to face", I can only imagine!!! This is the time that we will be filled with all the glory of the Holy Spirit and look, we will know God as fully as he knows us.

    All your questions will be answered then my friend!
    Thank you I love this!:angel:

    When you die and become before God, he will look at you and not see your sin but see Jesus Christ; he then will make you perfect. Perfection is a Spiritual State and is impossible for any human in the physical state, except of course Jesus!

    And please do say that I think that I can just sin all I want and get away with it, a true "Born Again" Christian would never do that.

    God has revealed many sins in my life that I have no desire to do again but that does not mean I am sinless. What it does mean is that I trust God to show me when I do sin and that he has already taken care of it at the cross!
    +1 Great post. Some Christians talk about the blood of Jesus Christ like its the blood of a bull or a ram. And then other Christians talk about their sins as if they are over 2000 years old themselves. Every sin of our life, was yet future when Jesus shed His blood. Christians don't wake up in the morning and rub their hands togther and bellow out with a sinister laugh, "We're going to sin today. We're going on a sinning binge its Friday." We're always going to be tempted and sometimes we're going to give in and sin. Its a life long process to resist sin. If you sin, ask for forgiveness and remind yourself that everyone of your sins have been forgiven at teh Cross. Put it our of mind and out of sight and enjoy the rest of your day. If God forgets it then why would anyone try to remember them.

    Yes, it is not that we don't look at our sin, we do but, God has told us he doesn't!!!

    What a marvelous God that has come up with a plan that takes our salvation completely out of our hands, that way we can't boast or complain! And, since we are not required to do anything but recieve this Grace, God calls it a gift and if it is a git , it is free!!!

    What did Jesus say, " and the truth will set you free!!

    God have mercy on us, Amen!!

    I guess that is a term you are not familiar with.

    Let me explain it this way.
    Now I can't at this time explain this with a verse but that does not make it un-true because, though there is enough, every single thing about knowledge is not in the Bible. God gave us common sense and the power to reason.

    Saying all that, I feel that if you are trying to define a particular verse, if you your answer does not or can not have a negative outcome, then you are on the right track.....any negative outcome is not of God. Now, if your outcome is negative, keep searching.

    With that in mind, free is defined as any thought about Scripture that is a positive thought and it means that the outcome is void of any negative bondage.

    Just one example because any other example would have the same outcome.

    Example: Someone very close to you dies, your though is that God caused it or that he does not love you. That is a negative and not of God and can lead to some serious bondage like you are not worthy, your no good or that you must not be saved.
    The truth is that God's love for you is perfect and totally unconditional.

    The truth about Jesus and God will set you free and not put you into bondage; bondage is of the Devil!

    I also believe that if you ask for forgiveness with a pure heart God will forgive you.
    Excellent post! If we can willfully sin “because Jesus will forgive anyway” mentality, why then did Jesus die in the first place? The Scribes and Pharisees believed they were on their way to heaven because they did all the ‘rituals’ of purity that was law and would get them to heaven. Jesus said to them that when they arrived in heaven He would say that He never knew them. “I never knew you” means that not once were they considered to be His own.

    What kind of sense does it make to willfully sin against God? It means that there is one more senseless whip added to what He already endured, one more needless thorn to His thorn crown, one more meaningless deed He endured the wrath of God for.

    Seems to me that if a person would really appreciate what God has done for us in giving up His own perfect Son to die for us all so that we might enter heaven, we would value Christ’s love by being more like Him rather than a flippant assertion that ‘Jesus died for all our sins and we can do as we like since He took all sin on the cross’.

    Yes, He died for the pure of heart willing to be in obedience to God rather than those like the Pharisees who called Jesus a heretic and blasphemer. Wide is the path that leads to destruction. Many will believe they are on their way to heaven only to find they are placed on Jesus left side rather than the right.

    Excellent post, thank you
