The idea of falling away from God’s grace has plagued the mind of many a theologian.
In Hebrews 6, Scripture indicates that it is definitely a reality that one may face. Yet, it’s hard to exactly place it, because it is wrapped in the mystery of salvation, God’s eternal plan and the after-life.
Personally, I have wondered about people who I knew as a teen in youth group. They seemed to truly desire a relationship with God and took part in all aspects of church-life. Yet, as they reached adulthood, it hasn’t seemed to hold.
Do these people fit into the concept of falling away? Was it just the community that we had that held them in place? Did they ever really know Jesus and have the Holy Spirit?
I know it’s not my place to determine this. However, I am continually trying to wrap my mind around why some people remain in the faith and some do not.
