Hebrews 6:1-8 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible

Let’s press on to maturity

1 So let's press on to maturity, by moving on from the basics about Christ's word. Let's not lay a foundation of turning away from dead works, of faith in God, 2 of teaching about ritual ways to wash with water, laying on of hands, the resurrection from the dead, and eternal judgment—all over again. 3 We're going to press on, if God allows it. 4 Because it's impossible to restore people to changed hearts and lives who turn away once they have seen the light, tasted the heavenly gift, become partners with the Holy Spirit, 5 and tasted God's good word and the powers of the coming age. 6 They are crucifying God's Son all over again and exposing him to public shame. 7 The ground receives a blessing from God when it drinks up the rain that regularly comes and falls on it and yields useful plants for those who farm it. 8 But if it produces thorns and thistles, it's useless and close to being cursed. It ends up being burned.
