TXT – Q&A (Part 3)

Another question submitted…
Is there an unpardonable sin?

Answer:
This is not an easy one to answer (nor is there a short answer to this). There are a couple passages in the Gospels which record Jesus describing an eternal sin or what we call an unpardonable sin. In the context of this statement, Jesus had been healing people and just cast a demon out of a man. The Pharisees when they heard about this said, “It is only by Beelzebub (Satan), the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” Basically, they were claiming that Jesus only had the power to drive out demons because he was one of them.

First let me say, that is a pretty bold and arrogant statement to make about anyone, let alone Jesus. Jesus’ reply is that if a kingdom is divided against itself, it will fail (Satan can’t drive out Satan). But I think one of the key verses in Matthew 12 is verse 28 in which Jesus said, “But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.” (NIV)

Jesus then goes on to say that if anyone blasphemes against other people or even the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him, but if anyone blasphemes against the Spirit they will not be forgiven (Matt 12:31). The word blaspheme in the Greek means to “vilify” or to speak evil against. Now that we have all the details, let me give you my thoughts.

It seems that what the Pharisees were doing was denying Jesus was from God (deity) and denying the source of his power. According to Matt 12:28, it was the Holy Spirit that was working through Jesus to perform these miracles. In effect the Pharisees weren’t saying anything against Jesus but against the Holy Spirit (source). By doing this they were also denying the deity of Jesus. The truth of salvation is this…you must believe in Jesus and that he died for your sins and rose again through the power of God.

Let me just say that everyone who does not embrace Jesus as the Son of God and put their trust in Him will enter eternity with sin that is not forgiven. However, I think Jesus’ statement speaks even more to people who have turned their back on God so much that they not only refuse to believe in Jesus but they go so far as to arrogantly reject the Spirit of God, who draws people to him. The truth is that the Holy Spirit draws people to accept Jesus. If someone rejects this grace that One who gives it, they will undoubtedly remain unforgiven. I don’t necessarily believe this applies to someone who was mad at God at one point and through frustration yelled/cursed at God…unless they never come to him and repent in the future. (Which is why most people ask this question) Sorry for the long response.

  1. I believe what you said was very reasonable. But, what about this?
    what if you were to write a killer title? I am not suggesting
    your content isn’t good., but what if you added a post title to possibly get a person’s
    attention? I mean TXT – Q&A (Part 3) – Tim Moore is a
    little plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page
    and note how they create news titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
