Text: Hebrews 6:1-12
Private interpretations—Some of the many confusing false teachings from this passage are: 1) This is a Christian who lost his salvation. 2) These are only professing believers who never really got saved. 3) The passage only applies to Jews in the tribulation period. 4) The verses are only hypothetical and purely conjectural. Each of these false interpretations ignores the context of the passage, which is addressed to believers concerning their going on unto perfection, that they all may be presented “perfect in Christ Jesus” (Colossians 1:28). Many have been misled and confused by the false teaching that salvation is the subject of this passage.
