For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward; 3. How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;" MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

2 Peter 2:19-21 "While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge [epignwsis] of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein [v.19 corruption], and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21. For it had been better for them not to have known [epignwsis] the way of righteousness, than, after they have known [epignwsis] it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them."
Hebrews 6:4-6 "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5.

If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame."
