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, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
What is Hebrews 6:4-6 teaching about falling away?
Seems the 3 main ideas I have seen are:
Those once enlightened,...
In order not to derail another thread, I thought it best to start a thread on the topic of the Mystery of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
To make this as simple as possible, I will give only one passage that shows that the Gospel of Christ was not revealed to men in the Old Testament, though it was spoken of often enough (Isaiah 53, for example).
To be clear, we are not looking at whether the Gospel can be found in the Old Testament, it can be. What we are looking at is whether men had...
In a recently-closed thread, @SheepWhisperer asked, "If someone cannot possibly access something that is "available", how then is it "available" to save them?"
I would like to ask a similar question in two parts: 1) Can someone believe in Jesus if he has never heard of Jesus? 2) How many people have lived and died without ever hearing the gospel of Jesus?
Any and all Free-Willies, please respond. Looking forward to it.
In Acts 4 Peter states that there is no other name under heaven in which a person can be saved.
Now this thread is NOT about how one gets saved. Rather, this thread is an attempt at exploring what is meant by the "name under heaven" part of the statement.

How far does one take this statement used by Peter.
The passage goes on to clarify exactly...
Acts 13 -
13 Now Paul and his companions put out to sea from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia; but John left them and returned to Jerusalem. 14 But going on from Perga, they arrived at Pisidian Antioch, and on the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down. 15 After the reading of the Law and the Prophets the synagogue officials sent to them, saying, “Brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say it.” 16 Paul stood up, and motioning with his hand said,...
First, let me say that I do not believe Scripture teaches there is "an immortal soul" in a context dealing with man's make-up. I take the view that man is a two-part being, made up of body and Spirit, and is a soul, rather than "has a soul."
I do believe that immortality is promised to those who believe, hence, when we enter into eternity, we will be "immortal souls" (persons)...
