BEYOND RETURN

Impossible to Be Renewed Again to Repentance (II)

Such a severe punishment is to be meted out on those committing such misdemeanour, on account of the encounters they have had previously with the Lord in their life of faith. They were the partakers of every heavenly gifts and blessings (Heb. 6:4-6) that God would give to His children. They were put into this most blessed position when they first received and accepted the word of truth. The crucifixion of Christ epitomises the word of truth and discloses the validity and the trueness of the truth to set one free. The act of crucifixion and the word of truth are the two sides of a coin. By the practicing of the truth, one is ushered into the reality of being in Christ and living a life of Christ through the Spirit. To turn their back on the word that saves is tantamount to nothing less than re-crucifying Christ.

Unambiguously, no one can ever afford to be an apostate at the expense of losing one’s soul. So stern is the reminder that we have to be aware of the underlying reasons for one to turn apostate, to ensure this history will not repeat itself on us. Based on the facts given in Hebrews, apostasy begins to develop in a heart of not being able to discern both good and evil (Heb. 5:14). The inability to discern blurs the perception of the truth. This inability leads to a weakened state of spirituality. In such a state, there is only one outcome — the mind becomes susceptible to influence, virtually of any nature.

The greater the influence, the less interested we shall be in the word of God (Heb. 5:11). This is well captured by the writer of Hebrews: the believers became dull of hearing. This gives room to deception to work unhindered. When deception gets the better of the mind, the inevitable will take place —we would be sliding down on the slippery slope of unbelief. Once the mind is deceived, the truth of God will be belittled and eventually trampled. The conscience shall be seared beyond restoration, alienating the mind completely from the will of God. Being alienated, we will never be able to bring ourselves to repentance again, with the understanding that repentance is granted by God (2 Tim. 2:25).
