Hebrews 5:11–14 (ESV)

Warning Against Apostasy

11 About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, 13 for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. 14 But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.

 

Many Christians have been going to church all their lives, but they are infants in their faith.  They go to church, but they do not go to Bible study, nor do they read or study the Bible.  They are like a grown adult still sucking on a baby bottle or eating pureed baby food.  They are still Christians, but they have never matured in their faith and knowledge.  They should have graduated up to hamburgers or even steaks (solid food).   Unfortunately, they often choose not to go to Bible study and avoid it.  That is… avoiding the Word of God.  These words seem harsh but re-read today’s reading.  “11 About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, 13 for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. 14 But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.”  I give thanks for those who do not despise the Word of God and are excited to read and digest God’s Word.  I pray that today’s passage will open the eyes of those who believe but turn from studying God’s Word. 

I pray: O Lord, I have not always found studying your Word as exciting.  Help me to grow from this passage and to be inspired by the Holy Spirit to want to study.  Return the joy of your Word and my Salvation.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
