Does Hebrews 6:4-6 mean we can lose our salvation?

A reader has requested we open up for discussion the matter of Hebrews 6:4-6. A much discussed contraversy over whether one can lose eternal life. The debated term, "once saved-always saved."

I tend to believe that it can be wrapped up and/or confused by different definitions and circumstances. It's difficult to make a blanket statement as such when the Creator is our judge. We, as His children, do NOT judge one's destiny. However, we're warned of quenching the Spirit.

The fact that we may at one time, feel remorse, repent and commit to a life seeking righteousness, does not negate the fact that we're still mortal human beings with human nature, will still stumble and can fall back into any ditch. In fact, I believe that it could be us continuing to fall in the ditch is what keeps us coming back and calling on our Father.

What better way to be filled with humility than when we see ourselves as useless without Him.

Can we truly and fully overcome before the Savior returns? I ask...

For your consideration...

Stop paying others to inspire us, but rather be inspired by helping those in need.
