Hebrews 6:4-6 A Warning for Believers?

The warning in Hebrews 6:4-6 is an extremely controversial topic. There are 3 different theological interpretations: 1) Arminian view: a Christian can lose his salvation; 2) Reformed/Calvinist view: believers are eternally secure so it is a warning to unbelievers in the church audience; or 3) Hypothetical: it is only an idle threat.

Andy discusses a fourth view that could be the key to solving the problems of the other views by looking at the passage’s references to Kadesh Barnea. Kadesh Barnea refers to the generation of Old Testament Hebrews who came out of Egypt (the Exodus) to a place called, Kadesh Barnea.
