Hebrews 6:4 - 6:6 is one of the most misunderstood verse selection of Scripture. It is often cited as proof that Eternal Security is an invalid teaching.

To understand Hebrews 6:4 - 6:6 , it is necessary to ascertain the overall salvation teachings of its writer, the Apostle Paul. Since Holy Scripture is one complete God inspired writing, it is also necessary to understand the Bible's salvation teaching. Only then can a Bible Study present an accurate interpretation of this group of verses.
