And yet, the apostle Paul tells us in the opening verses of 1 Corinthians 15 that the gospel is of first importance. And I don’t believe he means initial importance but primary (central) importance. This is why he’s “reminding” the Corinthians about it. Over and over again, Paul instructs his readers to only hold true to what they’ve already attained, to lay hold of what has laid hold of them . . . and so forth. So I don’t believe the author of Hebrews is telling us in Hebrews 6 that we graduate from the gospel to other things.
So to what does Hebrews 6:1-2 refer?
This was a great conversation between me, Brian and Karen Jones. Check it out!
As someone who has sometimes passed along “fake quotes” without knowing it, I’ve started a collection so that others will know about them and stop spreading them. (Thomas Kidd offers a good suggestion for figuring out if a quote is real before passing it on.)
Christians care about truth. We shouldn’t spread quotes, no matter how good, if they’re not real. Here are some to avoid.
We doubt the love of God because we know who we really are. But the image we paint of ourselves is far better than the dim reality. God sees through it. We see the outward appearance even of our inward parts because we hold the brush, but God sees the heart.
