Discussion for Hebrews 6

    What exactly is unpardonable sin? If your life doesn't show any fruits at all you just pretend and go to church thinking all along you were saved. Was I ever saved at all?

    WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM ABRAHAM TODAY? WHEN GOD MAKES A PROMISE, WE MUST LEARN TO WAIT AND TRUST GOD TO BRING IT TO PAST! WE MUST REMIND OURSELVES WHEN THINGS LOOKS HOPELESS THAT GOD KNOWS THE END FROM THE BEGINNING! GOD IS NOT LIKE MAN THAT SAYS ONE THING AND DO ANOTHER! THE WORD FOR TODAY IS PATIENCE!!!! PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE THAT IM LEARNING IS VERY VALUABLE TO HAVE IN THIS LIFE! THANK U LORD FOR GIVING US THE TOOLS TO STAND IN THIS WORLD OF CHAOS! AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!
  • Perley Sasuclark for verse 2
    What is the "doctrine of baptisms " mentioned in Hebrews 6: 2? It is, first of all, one doctrine not three. It is, however, a three-fold manifestation of the one doctrine. First, it is the doctrine of water baptism as represented in the ritual washing in the Temple worship and John 's baptism. Second, it the doctrine of spiritual baptism as when one has been baptized into the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ by way of His cross. Third, it is the baptism of the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, whom Christ said He would pray the Father to send to all who believed in Him to act in His stead. The first baptism is an ordnance of the Church and signifies the new birth. The second baptism is the sacrament of the new birth which is accomplished by the faith of man working with the grace and mercy of God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon the Cross. The third baptism is the power of God that enables man to operate on a spiritually higher level in Christ Jesus. It is the "law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Now you don 't need to accept my definition and you may refute my reasoning. However, I want to remind you that a three-legged dog can walk just not as good as a dog with four legs.

    Jesus himself is the word of God. Our Holy Father loves his Son so much and he has given Jesus a full authority to forgive Sins, to save his own people for those who love God. Thanks to Jesus for sheding his precious blood to give us life in abundance. There is no other above name is Jesus because of his perfect obedience to the Father. We must believe in Jesus because he is the only way that we can go to the Father. Before Jesus ascended into heaven He leave us the Church and the Bible for us to believe his words and obey his words. Believe and Trust God first and put him into our life first all things that we need will be added. What a promising God and loving Father. His love endureth forever. Amen
  • MockingBird for verse 10
    God is not unrighteous to forget my work and labor of love toward His name. All things are open and naked to the eyes of whom we have to do. God knows the intent of my heart wether my labor is for my own profit or for His. Which puts a fear of God in me to make sure I am doing all for the Glory of God. I will have to give an account for all I do. Good and bad !!!
  • Luke
    Melchisedec according to the Old testament is The King of Salem who is a High priest similar to " The Angel of the Lord " . Abraham meets Him face to face after a great slaughter and is moved in his spirit to give of the spoils obtained from the slaughter, the first part, for the first time here referred to as Tithes. For the Help God gave him to win the Battle . So this Jesus, in your scripture is found in the Old Testament as " The Angle of the Lord " always encountered in the Old Testament . Thus in time taking the form of sinful man , over came sin and the curse in man, and is now passed into heaven as the only High priest who can obtain for us our salvation . He is the Only way, the truth, and the life . to Deliverance from Sin. In similar order as Melchisedec . Amen ! Heb: Ch. 7 .
