“For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame” (Hebrews 6:4-6 NKJV).
These Christians who decide to leave behind their salvation and Jesus Christ are “killing Jesus” in their lives. Some are pretenders who are “ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ” (Jude 4). These must be the “hypocrites” in the church people talk about, because all other Christians are sincerely following in Jesus’ footsteps.
