The UNFORGIVABLE sin

 


Proverbs 8:13

King James Version

13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: 

pride, and arrogancy, 

and the evil way, 

and the froward mouth, 

do I hate.


The previous post tells us of the ORIGINAL sin.

But what about the UNFORGIVABLE sin?

What would that be?

I'm glad GOD made me born again, that I may turn to Scripture.

JESUS speaks about the UNFORGIVABLE sin:

Matthew 12:31-32

King James Version

31 Wherefore I say unto you, 

All manner of sin and blasphemy 

shall be forgiven unto men: 

but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost 

shall not be forgiven unto men.

32 And whosoever speaketh a word 

against the Son of man, 

it shall be forgiven him: 

but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, 

it shall not be forgiven him, 

neither in this world, 

neither in the world to come.


Scripture explains why the sin against the HOLY SPIRIT becomes unforgivable:

Mark 3:30

King James Version

30 Because they said, 

He hath an unclean spirit.


Why did the Pharisees say JESUS had an "unclean" spirit?

Here's the context, according to Scripture:

Matthew 12:22-30

King James Version

22 Then was brought unto him one 

possessed with a devil, 

blind, and dumb: 

and he healed him, 

insomuch that the blind and dumb 

both spake and saw.

23 And all the people were amazed, 

and said, Is not this the son of David?

24 But when the Pharisees heard it, 

they said, 

This fellow doth not cast out devils, 

but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, 

and said unto them, 

Every kingdom divided against itself 

is brought to desolation; 

and every city or house divided against itself 

shall not stand:

26 And if Satan cast out Satan, 

he is divided against himself; 

how shall then his kingdom stand?

27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, 

by whom do your children cast them out? 

therefore they shall be your judges.

28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, 

then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, 

and spoil his goods, 

except he first bind the strong man? 

and then he will spoil his house.

30 He that is not with me is against me; 

and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.


Being born again helps us understand how to revere the the HOLY SPIRIT.

Something not too many people, even Christians, know.

But it's time we did.

Next post will explain what sins are.
