“It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted of the goodness of the Word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subject Him to public disgrace.” Hebrews 6:4-6
I don’t understand this verse. It seems to mean that believers can lose their salvation if they become atheists, but there are many verses that say that salvation is eternal, and nothing can pluck you from God’s hand.

I read a theory on this verse that said that if you tried to get saved and saved again, it was like sacrificing Jesus on the cross over and over again. I’m worried about this because a few years ago I accepted Jesus into my heart, but I don’t think I fully understood what that meant at the time. I also remember falling away several times and each time I would ask Jesus back into my heart. I heard somewhere along the way that you can’t get saved more than once but I didn’t think much of it. I fell away after that and now here I am. What I’m wondering is was I truly saved when I asked Jesus into my heart the first time, and did I lose my salvation by sacrificing Jesus on the cross many times? And if I decide that my earlier attempts at salvation didn’t matter, and if I asked Jesus into my heart again now, would that be sacrificing him yet again? I’m so confused, and I’m worried that I’ve committed something unforgivable.

It’s not what you have done or what you understand but it’s by God’s grace through yours/my faith in Him to save us. (Ephesians 2:8-9 -For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast.) If your saved, John 10:28-29 says, “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” (Jesus said this). Every part of the Bible is true, if one part was wrong the whole thing would be wrong. Also (in my KJV study Bible it says) that in Hebrews 6:4-8 the story is about a group of professed (Definition is-claimed openly but often falsely) Jewish believers, and in my own words they put up a front and weren’t actually saved. I really hope this helps.
