I need to know exactly what the unpardonable sin is? There is so many different interpretations about it on the internet!!?

I really need to know what it is exactly, why does everyone’s have a different understanding of what it is? I want Jesus in my life and need him, but my uncertainty around what the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is makes me feel like I’m turning away because of my frustrations and not knowing. I feel like I know for sure that Jesus is real, I’ve seen spirits and may have seen the Holy Spirit but I can’t say for sure. I  get bad anxious thoughts about god and Jesus that I don’t want, and I just need to know what it is? I feel like part of me might of rejected, but I don’t want to

    When you don't decide to start obeying all of Jesus' sayings

  • 1 month ago

    I know how varied the answers are, but people don't look to the utmost.

    What sin could not be forgiven?  Jesus mentioned also that it is better to be thrown into the sea tied to a millstone than to trip one of the little ones who believes in Him.

    So I think this is what the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is - corrupting one of the little ones - or one under your authority or influence. 

    A prime example would be a clergy member molesting a child or anyone under his care or authority.  That is an eternal sin because the perp is corrupting the victim under his authority as a man of God, and the victim may be turned away from the Church forever.  

    When the Bible speaks of "the small " it can be referring to children, but also to those of lower position in society.

    Mark 3:28-30 - Matt.18:  6 - Mark 9:42 - Luke 17:2

    There is only one unpardonable sin, and that is ascribing partners to Allah the Almighty [glorified and exalted be He]. All other sins He can, of His grace, pardon.

    God has given every responsible person an equal opportunity to choose Heaven, and the mere fact that *this* bothers your conscience proves that you did not commit the unpardonable sin. Feeling better already?

    Jesus' opponents did not deny that He performed miracles but affirmed that He did it by the devil.

    In fact, they called the Holy Spirit an *unclean spirit* and Jesus replied, "Therefore, I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit, shall not be forgiven." [Matthew 12:31].

    So, you can put yourself at ease and be comfortable with who you are (as long as you realize that you do not belong to yourself...)

    There's ONE unpardonable sin:  blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.  Nobody has the right to dispute that.  It's in the Bible.

  • 1 month ago

    It's very simple.  It's failing to accept salvation.  It's unforgivable because it actually is failing to allow God to forgive you.

  • To blasphemy the holy spirit would be to attribute works done by God through his holy spirit to Satan as the scribes did when Jesus Christ was performing miracles by God's holy spirit and they attributed it to Satan, Mark 3:22. At Mark 3:29,30 it is then explained.

    It is rejection of God from your life, also known as blasphemy. Once He is no longer active in your life, you cannot repent of your sins, you cannot seek forgiveness, so you are doomed.

    The unpardonable sin is not wanting to be pardoned, neighbor.
