All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

The idea that there could be a sin so grievous to God that it will never be forgiven, is a very scary thing to most Christians.

The unforgivable sin
The unforgivable sin
Craig Portwood

It is not uncommon for believers to question at one point or another, whether they have strayed so far from God as to have forfeited any hope of redemption.

To further complicate the issue, there are more than a few believers who have reached and promote conclusions which are unsupported by scripture. This can lead to much needless worry on the part of believers.

That there is a sin so heinous that God will not forgive it, is naturally something dreadful to Christians. Forgiveness lies at the heart of our faith. If there is indeed a sin unpardonable by God, we should understand what it is and be wary of even coming close to committing it. Read more>>

Grace and Peace, Craig. Yes, there are believers who fear that "unforgiveable sin". But, they don`t have to if they truly believe INTO Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Jesus`statement in Mark 3:28-29 means that the Holy Spirit convicts (convinces) an unbeliever of their "sin of the world" (unbelief in Christ Jesus - John 16:9). Once a person realizes their sin-being and he/she repents, they receive Jesus. He paid the ransom of their sins on the cross. So, the redemption process all starts with the Holy Spirit. If one blaphemes Him, it`s impossible for them to receive John 3:16. Remember, Jesus tells us in John chapter10: 28-29 "....And nobody can pluck them out of My hand." .

Thank you for your kind comments. I have been called "challenging" before, and other things too!

Blessings upon you.
