In the sermon this past weekend, we took a closer look at Hebrews 6:4-6. This is one of the toughest passages in scripture. It is widely debated, and in the history of the church, some people have used this passage as the proof text to say that you can lose your salvation. At The Bible Chapel, we hold true to the belief that once you are saved your salvation cannot be taken away (John 10:28).

Check out this snippet from the sermon and let's start a dialogue about what we learned about this passage. Was it helpful, do you still have questions, etc.?

I am so thankful that I know beyond a shadow of doubt that once I became a child of God, I am His forever.

Is it possible that a person never really received Christ. They said a prayer but never really transferred their trust in Christ therefore never receiving his Spirit. There was no change. This referring to Matthew 7:21-23 "not everyone who says to me Lord Lord... i never knew you" or is that more for a legalist Pharisee type? Kind of accepting Christ as Savior but denying his Lordship. I'm being careful in asking this because we don't want to get "saved" every Sunday just because we don't feel saved. You and I probably both grew up in that Church enviroment. Assurance of our Salvation is so important too. This was a great sermon, to sit around the table at Fiori's Sunday afternoon with our family of 7 and have discussions based off this sermon was to say the least awesome!

Lana, assurance of salvation, I believe, is the bedrock of our relationship with Jesus. So thankful for your certainly that you are a child of God and will forever be!

Andrew—thanks for your response. I believe it is so important for believers to understand the great things that God has for them. I have been told how difficult it is to play minor league baseball—the long bus trips, the second rate hotels, the content yearning to make it to the Big Leagues. The great truth of Scripture is that as believers we don’t have to live a second rate Christian life. God has given us everything we need to experience everything He has for us. Again, thanks for your comments.
