The opposite of apostasy is faith.  This is a preview of the subsequent chapter.  It is faith which pleases God.  The individual who draws back from the knowledge of the gospel and faith will prove his apostasy.

The Law was not meant as a means to self-righteousness, but a means to self-condemnation, pointing man to his sin, leading to conviction, repentance, and pleading to God for mercy.
