Hebrews 6:4-6, Christians who fell from faith

This is a piece of Scripture that causes much debate, so if you believe I’m in the wrong, please explain why in the comments.

There are some people that say that Hebrews 6:4-6 is not talking about Christians.

For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.
(Hebrews 6:4-6 ESV)

If you are enlightened, you are a Christian.
If you have tasted the heavenly gift, you are a Christian.
If you share in the Holy Spirit, you are a Christian.

I don’t see how people can claim those verses do not speak about Christians.

Look up the Greek word for “enlightened

It speaks to being a shining light. Like how Jesus taught us to be a shining light in a room. When you light up a room, the entire room lights up. Now how can one be a shining light and not be a Christian. You are either a light, or you are not a light. That’s the point of being a light. It’s either light. Or dark.

So how can Hebrews 6:4-6 not be speaking about Christians who fell away from faith?
