Dear Mike,

There is this sin that Jesus states is impossible to be forgiven:

31 Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. 32 And whoever says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.

(Matthew 12:31-32)

  • What exactly is He talking about?

Juan

  { What exactly is Our Lord talking about when He mentions blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? }

Mike replied:

Hi, Juan —

He is talking about one who believes the sin [he|she] has committed is so grave, that even God will not forgive [him|her].

For the Christian, the Holy Spirit leads all mankind to repentance and the forgiveness of sins.

When the Christian says:

"No, the Holy Spirit  or God won't forgive me, so I won't even try to get my sins forgiven because they are too serious."

the Christian ends up playing God Himself — a deadly game!

Jesus through His Church will always forgive any sin — even the sin of abortion, as long as the person has the desire to be forgiven!

I hope this helps,

Mike
