Complete Redemption/Hebrews 6:4-6

What we have been hearing, referred to as “the good news” or the gospel, must be seen for what it is… bad news indeed! In its place must be declared the truly good news.

Complete Redemption/Hebrews 6:4-6

I read your response to an inquiry about the Hebrews topic of speaking of those once enlightened and then falling away, being impossible to return to repentance. How does this fit in with the complete redemption philosophy? How could it be impossible for someone to come to repentance if everyone will ultimately be saved? And on that issue, how does one get saved who died in an unrepentant state? Are they counciled in the afterlife and given the chance then to repent?

Someone may correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the passage in question is referring to those who have received the Holy Spirit and then still turned back to sin.

The impossibility of re-entering repentance is referring to specifically this life. And how could they, after walking in Truth, repenting, and having Christ dwell within, turn back to repentance?

They have crucified Christ all over again, denying His Power of Resurrection by their actions. Again, I might be wrong, but I believe that may be the very essence of blaspheming the Holy Spirit.

But the hope of Christ is, that after much hell to pay for rejecting Him after true intimacy with Him (imagine a wife cheating on her husband, a sin punishable by death in the Old Testament), they will go on to receive salvation in the next life.

Millions if not billions die without repentance. Their hope is not in this world, but the next, where the Lord will reconcile all things to Him.

One can only speculate on the next life unless given revelation from God, but I imagine it is quite similar to this one, albeit spiritual and not physical.

Thus, scenarios in which people receive correction, learn, are edified, and grow in the knowledge of Christ that leads to repentance are all likely. He's confirmed to me several times, this life is not the end.

But who can know these things aside from the Lord? Let us focus on Him today while we still live and breathe, and let Him deal with those who have fallen asleep.
