The Severe Warning Passages in Hebrews
In the New Testament book of Hebrews there are a number of "severe warning passages." Many Christians have been perplexed and confused when reading them. How exactly are these passages to be interpreted and understood? Can we in fact be sure of what the passages mean? If, as Scripture teaches elsewhere, Jesus the great Shepherd never loses any of His true sheep, and as Paul states in Romans "these whom He justified He also glorified" (Romans 8:30) who are these passages aimed at? Is the writer to the Hebrews seeking to teach that true Christians can lose their salvation?
In this video below, Dr. James White takes us through these warning passages. Though it is by no means a full exegesis of each text it is a very good overview and well worth watching. - Pastor John Samson
