Hebrews 6:4–8 (NASB95)
4 For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit,
5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
6 and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.
7 For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God;
8 but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.
Hebrews 13:5 (NASB95)
5 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”
Hebrews chapter six is interpreted by many as how someone who rejects Christ after being surrendered to Him goes to hell. In the same book of Hebrews by the same writer, in chapter 13 Jesus is quoted as saying, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”.
So if I surrender to Jesus then reject Jesus what is His response? Jesus cannot lie. Jesus will never desert or forsake me so does He go to hell with me? Isn’t one of the attributes of hell is that Jesus won’t be there? That is a contradiction.
What if we look at the analogy of the “ground” again. I believe that if I reject Jesus I will no longer be useful to Him. So far, so good. But I am not cursed, rather I am “close” to being cursed. And the ground with my thorns and thistles, “my works,” will be burned. Burning was the therapeutic procedure for ground with weeds before planting new crops. It was not punishment for the ground. It was needed help.
