Yay! I think he finally agrees - those in Heb 10:29 were never saved to begin with. They were given the opportunity but chose to trample on Jesus, treat the covenant with contempt and reject the free gift.
I think the context shows that Paul is speaking to believers.
But I also don't think losing salvation is mentioned in Hebrews 10.
I don't see any reason to read into the text that people can lose their salvation. Punishment for the believer can mean loss of eternal rewards, or even punishment for sin, in this life.
Anyone who reads loss of salvation into Hebrews 10, I believe, has to presuppose that believers can lose salvation, then read that back into the text.
