My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Hebrews 6

Paying the price

So let's move on from the basics of being saved, faith, baptism and praying for each other. If you've tasted heaven, you can't leave and then come back. There's no passouts. You might as well kill Jesus all over again!

I'm confident that God appreciates what you've been doing, but remember that a bad field gets burnt.

God's made a clear certain promise of our ability to go right into his holiest place and that Abraham would have countless descendants.

Key verse:
1. Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God

My thoughts:
Hmmm... the more mature teachings don't seem to be more complicated but seem to make demands of us. We are to be productive fields, and be clear about the ineffectiveness of the repentance of those who've left God. It's kinda scary! It's not like more complex theology, it's just more challenging!

I didn't really get the last bit about the promises... Twas a bit weird...
