“ Sound exegetical teaching in my humble opinion. ”
This gentleman in 7 minutes does what I heard countless other preachers in hours not do: reflects on the scriptures of Hebrews 6:4 and 10:26 through an exegetical study. The book's title is HEBREWS. It speaks about "the blood of bulls and goats" in verse 6 but somehow "sin willingly" in v26 has no bearing on that or the possibility of "sin" meaning "knowing what to do and not doing it". Instead let's scare the life out of the believer! What in the world? So from chapter 6 to chapter 10 (and in between & before) is referencing the unpardonable sin? Thank God ministers like this man take the whole book and comment. Try to return to God after terrible life decisions that have to do with repeated backsliding bc of addiction and lack of perseverance and you have to sift through eisegesis type of scripture grabbing. Man, scary stuff!

“ Great encouragement, Dr Cairns! ”
In this short but beautifully rendered message, superb preacher and speaker Dr Cairns deals with one of the most disturbing passages of Scripture- concerning a Christian's possible loss of salvation - and yet makes it clear that it does not refer to genuinely saved born again men and women. A great message, and very reassuring. Recommended.

“ The real context ”
Actually we often ask the wrong questions when treating these passages in Hebrews. The context is the deliverance of God's Hebrew people as a group detailed in Number 12 - 14, not individual personal salvation. This situation historically is referred to many times in Hebrews 3 and following. The issue was the rebellion of the whole group in Numbers having had all the benefits Paul mentions in Heb. 6: 4, 5 - and when they tried to undo their rebellion, it was impossible (Num14:44ff) for them. Paul used this paradigm case to try and persuade the Hebrew Christians as a group in his day not to return to the sacrificial system (as Dr. Cairns rightly observes). These warnings are corporate warnings for a 'church' which can apostatise - it is not treating individual salvation. Individuals (like Joshua and Caleb) for whom Christ died and who rest on Him alone for salvation will never be lost, even though their churches might apostatise - but different Scriptures address that issue of personal salvation.

“ Difficult texts; good answer ”
Using the context of these passages, Dr. Cairns explains the specific situation they are meant to address, which is why they are included in the letter. When taken out of context, these passages in Hebrews can be troubling to Christians. This is a good answer that should set things straight. People worried about these passages ought to give this a listen.
