How do you interrpt this if you believe once saved always saved?
"Hebrews 6:4-6" It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.

I do personally not believed that if you are saved than you can do what ever you want. If you are saved as a child and then grow up to be a rapist or even a liar then you are turning away from the Lord.
However, for the sake of this argument, this is the old testament. So you can of course argue the fact that as a Christian and not a Jew you are not subjected to the Old Testament because you were considered a Gentile and outside the Laws all together. During the time this passage was written there was no forgiveness for purposeful sinning or any sinning by a Gentile. That is why Christ needed to die on the cross on the first place.
