Hebrews 6:4-6Expanded Bible (EXB)
4 For it is impossible to ·bring back again to a changed life [L renew again to repentance] those who were once ·in God’s light [enlightened], and ·enjoyed [experienced; L tasted] ·heaven’s gift [or the heavenly gift; C perhaps the gift of salvation], and ·shared in [partook of] the Holy Spirit. 5 They ·found out [L tasted] how good God’s word is, and ·they received [L tasted] the ·powers [miracles] of ·his new world [the coming age/world]. 6 If they have ·fallen away [committed apostasy], it is impossible to ·bring them back to a changed life again [L renew them again to repentance], because they are nailing the Son of God to a cross again and are ·shaming him in front of others [making a public disgrace/exhibition of him].
If you had a fiancé who you REALLY got to know, and
you had the rings, the date, put yourself out for them
in EVERY WAY sharing all your hopes and dreams,
....he was caught in bed with your best girlfriend, could you
take him back again? Even if he was a very nice person?
How would YOU feel?
It takes a very long time but we actually are invited slowly
to become spiritually 'intimate' with God. Same idea.
But before that? Of course, it is even expect that people will
waffle back and forth. I don't because for me....it's
'to do' or 'not to do' and I made that decision.
And in ways, it was 'made for me'....but...I could have rejected,
and COULD....theoretically any time. God is fair.
To me, that would be entering the black hole, the void.
I'll never do it, by the grace of God.
