If They Shall Fall Away

Hebrews exhorts us to leave behind the world beneath the veil, and dwell in the Holy of Holies forever.    Part of that exhortation is a warning not to apostatize -- those who have seen the light, received the heavenly gift, received the Holy Ghost, tasted the "word" of God and the powers (remember that power, dynamis, is one of the markers of the Melchizedek priest), and "fall away" cannot repent, Hebrews says.

This may or may not be rhetorical exaggeration, but notice that all the activities are actions in the Worship of the Shalems.
