Blasphemy of the Spirit, Jan.24

What is the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit?

Many false theories arise because men do not distinguish between an unpardoned and the unpardonable sin (read Mt. 12:22-32; Mk. 3:22-30). Sins against Jesus could be forgiven, if they repented, but Jesus said the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit would not be forgiven. When the Pharisees saw Jesus cast out a demon, but ascribed the power by which He did it to the devil, Jesus said they would never be forgiven for that.

Some wonder if they have committed an unpardonable sin. The situation of those Pharisees cannot be reproduced today. No one today has seen Jesus cast out a demon, and any other sin can be forgiven if men submit to Godís terms (Acts 2:36-38; 1 Jn. 1:9).
