Intolerance in Hebrews

  1. Every skeptic and nonbeliever has "an evil heart of unbelief." 3:12

  2. It is impossible for fallen-away Christians to be saved. (Didn't the author know about confession or the finality of being saved?) 6:4-6

  3. Those who disobeyed the Old Testament law were killed without mercy. It will be much worse for those who displease Jesus. 10:28-29

  4. If you're not a Christian, it's impossible to please God. 11:6

  5. "By faith Noah ... condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith." 11:7

  6. The Israelites kept the passover and sprinkled blood on doorposts so that God wouldn't kill their firstborn children (like he did the Egyptians in Exodus 12:29). 11:28

  7. God saved Rahab because she believed. (He killed all the non-believers in Jericho.) 11:31
