Misreading Hebrews 6:1-3

Muslim Claim:


Pharisee Saul/Paul instructed those abiding in the Doctrine of Jesus, to abandon the Doctrine of Jesus and embrace his doctrine of Maturity and Perfection aka Christianity:

Hebrews 6:1-3

1 Therefore let us leave the Principles of the Doctrine of Christ, and let us go on unto Maturity and Perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

3 And this will we do, if God permit.”


Halleluyah !!!

The hidden identity of the Anti Christ is unveiled !!!

To accept Jesus Christ is to abide in his doctrine; To reject Jesus Christ is to abandon his doctrine;

Read the proof in the following proclamations of Jesus Christ on his Doctrine:

“My (Jesus) Doctrine Is Not Mine But His (God) That Sent Me.”

JOHN 7:16

2 John 1:9-11

9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the Doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the Doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this Doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

2 JOHN 1:9-11


Jesus Christ said: Paul and his followers alias Christians are the ANTI CHRIST and they hath neither Jesus Christ nor God; and their WORSHIP is VAIN !!!


My Counter-claim:

This is an excellent example of how to misread the Bible!

Reading the Bible in a clearer modern English translation can lead to a more correct understanding:

Heb 6:1  We must try to become mature and start thinking about more than just the basic things we were taught about Christ. We shouldn’t need to keep talking about why we ought to turn from deeds that bring death and why we ought to have faith in God.

Heb 6:2  And we shouldn’t need to keep teaching about baptisms or about the laying on of hands or about people being raised from death and the future judgment.

Heb 6:3  Let’s grow up, if God is willing. (CEV, Contemporary English Version)

Reading the immediately preceding context confirms that the author of Hebrews is not advocating any abandonment of the doctrine of Christ but rather is concerned to correct the lack of spiritual growth in his readers who have failed to move beyond the basics of their faith. This lack of spiritual growth in Christian maturity results from spiritual stagnation caused by failure to move on to learn and experience the deeper truths of God’s divine revelation contained in Scripture:

Heb 5:11  Much more could be said about this subject. But it is hard to explain, and all of you are slow to understand.

Heb 5:12  By now you should have been teachers, but once again you need to be taught the simplest things about what God has said. You need milk instead of solid food.

Heb 5:13  People who live on milk are like babies who don’t really know what is right.

Heb 5:14  Solid food is for mature people who have been trained to know right from wrong. (CEV)

    hello jerry good points on heb 6.1-3 several real good cross refs. Phil 3.12-14 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after,if that i may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing i do forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before’ 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 2 Cor 4.7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Cor. 5.7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. Heb 11.6 Without faith it is imposssible to please Him. 2 Corinthians 3.5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves: but our sufficiency is of God.
