For those who believe the Bible is the infallible word of God, regarding Hebrews 10:26-27 ...


What exactly does the following scripture mean to you? "For if we go on deliberately and willingly sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for [our] sins [no further offering to which to look forward." (Hebrews 10:26-27) Does this mean that every time we sin, we have to go and be saved again? Does this only apply if we turn completely away from the Lord God and deny He is Lord? It is a bit puzzling to me, for I know Jesus said, "It is finished" and that His blood and what he went through on that cross and He rose, covered me.

    Lawrence, what an insightful answer here! Yes, He fulfilled the law and we now have a new covenant. Nothing can take away what He did on that cross for us. We are sealed in the Lamb's book of life. Praise Him! And God bless you. In His Love, Faith Re

    AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN. Well said we share the same understanding. Norine is propagating that Judas was saved when Jesus went to the grave when the bible says he is LOST. Indirectly she is calling the word a lie. N If he was saved then satan to is!

    Now, to answer the question in my own words, that scripture means to me that I should not sin willfully. There is a high price to pay for doing that. God has helped me to understand that to sin is to oppose Him, myself, maybe someone else and or othe

    Thanks Jackie for the great answer! Yes, sin separates us for sure from Him. The ones who intentionally sin day after day without repentance makes me wonder if they were truly saved. We are all sinners no doubt, but intentionally that is dangerous!

    I think you are correct on the subject , I believe this is like a person has lost respect for the value of Jesus blood poured out in our behalf,

    It is like you give a person a diamond to only find it laying by the garbage can, and you are shocked !

    Hi Norine, You have shared great insight into the scripture here! Yes, praise God for His Grace and Mercy. Salvation is a free gift, and we must repent. I am so glad He knows our hearts. The Holy Spirit immediately convicts me in such matters.

    Hi Robert, I was having a discussion on this scripture with my husband, and was curious as to how others may interpret it. Yes, we are a work in progress and He is not through with us. I am happy that His mercies are new each day. Tx, God bless.

    Lady: It's not our concern re:Judas, but what happened "in the grave?" Jesus being merciful, and Judas knowing Jesus, (for someone had to be "used" to fulfill scripture), .. However, I just "follow Him!"
