Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again to repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. 7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes oft on it, and brings forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from God: 8 But that which bears thorns and briers is rejected, and is near to cursing; whose end is to be burned. The purpose of this thread is to establish whether or not this portion of scripture supports or denies OSAS by examining it in its immediate context of Hebrews 5:11-6:19. This means we cannot jump outside the context to some other proof texts found in other contexts in order to establish the meaning of this text. It means we must define it by its own context of what immediately precedes and follows it. Hebrews 5:11 introduces the immediate thought that begins this portion of Hebrews - their lack of ability to understand harder things - and it continues to Hebrews 6:19whereas Heb. 6:20 makes a transition to another subject and takes up - the Melchezidek Preisthood. So, those who oppose OSAS and think this text proves their case, please step forward and present your contextual evidence for your position.
