They had the mind that they were doing Christ favour by following Him through their carnality.When He spoke the statement about the Father, it was a dagger through their unbelief, in a manner of speech such as, "we 've left everything behind as a sacrifice to follow you yet you say your Father made us..... "They had the secular mind that the self can do other things through the power of the is truly impossible to impose flesh over the Spiritual things movement of God

Initially they could not underscore the words of christ in its real fashion this is hard saying who can hear them they were not new born babies that desire the sincere milk of the world But they among those that follow christ from the feeding with the five loaves To me their God is their belly they thus stumble at the stumbling block and went back to the things they left behind Nevertheless he destroy them not because of his holy covenant which he made with his faithful abraham

@Tjy and Joseph,
Almost every English translation leaves out the phrase "to the things behind" from the Greek text. This is tragic, for it has much to do with why they "turned back." The book of Hebrews has much to say about returning in rebellion, unbelief and disobedience (Hebrews 3:12-19) to the old ways, even to those things reckoned as beneficial according to the old life (Philippians 3:1-7). The apostle Paul reminds us to completely forget (original text of Philippians 3:13) "the things behind"; in this case, all that were considered more desirable than the new life we have in Christ. It helps in illustrating what the writer of Hebrews 6 was aiming at, and to whom at that point he was addressing, i.e. the unbeliever who was in danger of "turning back" as those in John 6:66 and in Numbers 14. In the latter case, they entered not into the rest of God in the land promised them because of unbelief. "The things behind" must be left behind, and completely forgotten by those professing to have come to a knowledge of the truth in Christ.
