In the Bible Chat thread someone posted a question on the following:
Hebrews 6:4-6 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)
Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society
4It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, 6if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because[a]to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.

It is a good source for quoting scripture when you want to copy and paste a passage, rather than sit and type it out.
From the rules, this seems the appropriate place to put this. If not, could a manager let me know? Looking over the rules, I believe I have found the right place.
I think this passage indicates that yes, someone who has partaken of the spirit of Jesus Christ [the saved, as some say] may fall. There are other passages as well. So I'd like to know, from a strictly Biblical POV, as opposed to an emotional POV...
are there those here who disagree with my thesis, who believe one CANNOT fall from Christ? If so, I'd like to know how you get around this passage.
