A sin against the Holy Spirit. Many people fear that they have committed it. See what this sin means. In this video we explore the mystery of the sin against the Holy Spirit, one of the most serious sins in Catholicism. It will be explained in an accessible and clear way what exactly it means and what consequences it has for the soul. In this video, which provides an explanation of the sin against the Holy Spirit, the basic aspects of the problem will be presented, such as what exactly this sin is, what are its consequences, and what are the possibilities of forgiveness. After watching this video, we will understand that the sin against the Holy Spirit is a total rejection of God's grace and turning away from God, which leads to the rejection of forgiveness. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, warned against this sin because it is a sin against the very nature of God, not only against His ethical dimension. As a result, whoever commits this sin cannot be forgiven and saved because they ultimately reject God's mercy.

However, the film will also emphasize that God is merciful and loves everyone without exception. That is why he always opens the way to forgiveness and salvation even for those who have committed the heaviest sins. It will be shown how God is always waiting for our free choice to turn away from our sins and turn to Him and offer us His love and grace. In addition, the film will also offer practical advice for our spiritual life. We will be able to learn ways to deal with temptations and achieve inner peace, even in difficult situations. We will also be able to better understand what the conditions are for a good confession and what actions can help us get closer to God. All this makes this film extremely important for anyone who is looking for a spiritual path through life and wants to better understand the mysteries of faith.

God is infinitely merciful and loves every person, no matter who they are or what they have done. It is love and mercy that are the basis of the relationship between God and man. heart. Humility and repentance are necessary to receive God's mercy. In the Catholic Church, there is a sacrament of penance and reconciliation, which makes it possible to receive the forgiveness of sins. During confession, the sinner confesses his sins to the priest and repents, and the priest, on the basis of his priesthood, grants absolution and advises how to avoid sins in the future. God is merciful and ready to forgive anyone who sincerely asks for forgiveness and repentance. This mercy is a source of hope for all people who need God's mercy and want to live in accordance with his will.

My teachers tell me you have not committed the unforgivable sin if you think you have. Those people believe they are the right ones and never consider they are wrong. People like Hitler, Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The unpardonable sin against the Holy Spirit. Many people fear that they have committed it.

Sin is not mysterious…
Sin is an individuals Rejection of God…
Sin is an individuals Rebellion against God.

Rejection is to hear, know, and dismiss.
Rebellion is to hear, know and rally to influence others to Reject God.

The “unpardonable sin”, IS an individual making an appeal directly to the Spirit of God, claiming true belief in God…(typically with witnesses)…that which such claim:
IS A LIE.

The individual knows it is a Lie. God knows it is a Lie. The “witnesses” may or may not be “fooled” by the false confession, which matters not in the Big Picture.

Glory to God,
Taken

The Bible tells us this is referring to those who claimed the Holy Spirit Who empowered Jesus to do the works that authenticated His ministry was an unclean spirit, thus vilifying (blaspheming) the Holy Spirit. This is a particular thing, defined in the Bible.

Much love!

There are 2 Types of Blasphemy, regarding this TOPIC.. = Unpardonable SIN

One is...

1.) Blasphemy OF......

and one is..

2.) Blasphemy AGAINST...


Easy to understand....

"Blasphemy of" is related to rejecting Christ, or insulting the Cross by teaching a Theology that denies it or adds to it.

So, in that case, you have Calvinism, or Catholicism, and many other "Isms" that insult the Cross by trying to Change God's purpose, regarding the Cross. So, that can be "limiting it to only some who are chosen"... or it can be "adding to the Cross"... some idea of.. "The Cross starts salvation and then you have to do the rest"... And that can also be... "The Cross + Water Baptism" is Salvation.

Also, Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit can be committed by someone who is teaching that "all that Christian stuff is MYTH".

The most common Blasphemy is simply to Reject Christ and die "in your sins" as Jesus said.

If you read Hebrews Chapter 6 and 10, you'll find the unpardonable sin being committed by Hebrews who are rejecting Christ and "trodding underfoot" and "willfully sinning" and "doing despite to the spirit of Grace".. AFTER they have "tasted the Heavenly Gift".


Now, Blasphemy Against .. .is what Religious Jews were doing, when Jesus was here, as they said...>"He is doing His miracles by the Power of Satan".. and Jesus told THEM..."that sin you are committing wont be be forgiven NOW, or in the World to Come".

Maybe that's when peoples conscience gets seared and they have no more conscience? I think you're on the right track though. If we havent committed that sin, you can feel it in your spirit. It's not really a feeling but a perceiving. I can feel the presence of the Lord within me, therefore I have not committed the unpardonable sin.

I don't teach it anywhere on my writings. I do mention it and when I do I believed it to be a rejection of God's spirit and some on here say the same. However, my teachers say it's unforgivable because it's seed and therefore like our seed it cannot be undone. We think we have the right seed and are on the right side. They too believe they have the right seed and are on the right side. But either way it cannot be undone.

Salvation, is to be forgiven.

If you die unforgiven, = Christ Rejector, never born again, then there is no later forgiveness, as your SIN is to die "un-pardoned"...

= The unpardonable SIN.

The sin of dying in UNBELIEF, never born again,

That is blasphemy AGAINST..... which is different than Blasphemy "OF".

See, the Reason that those Religious leaders were AGAINST the Holy Spirit, is 2 Reasons.

They were accusing the HS of "the devil's power".

And Jesus is : "Christ IS THAT Spirit"..........Jesus THE Christ... so, to blaspheme the HS is to falsely accuse Jesus, also.

There's a good dozen verses all over the Bible in both new and old testament that mention the children of the devil. Words like son of the evil one or son of Baal.

If that is so, then, how do we reconcile that it says that we can speak against the Son of God and it shall be forgiven us, but the Holy Spirit, no...but this is the very Spirit of Jesus Himself, right? I don't get that at all.

That is all the unbelievers.

John 3:36
I was talked out of this a number of years ago and then a friend just talked me back into it. So I went looking around on the Internet and found nothing useful and then I considered looking at the following data. Yeah, like a good 10 verses that come right out and say "the son of Belial" or "the child of Belial" or "child of the devil" or "your father the devil" and what my mind is looking at is my own sick government. Well, yes they are doing some very sick and twisted things. Hitler comes to mind and so does Obama and Clinton.

Deuteronomy 13:13
the children of Belial,

Judges19:22
certain sons of Belial,

1 Samuel 2:12; 10:27; 30:22
Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial;

But the children of Belial said,

Then answered all the wicked men and men of Belial,

2 Samuel 20:1
And there happened to be there a man of Belial,

1 Kings 21:10
sons of Belial,

2 Chronicles 13:7
the children of Belial,

John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil,

Acts 3:10
thou child of the devil,

1 John 3:12
Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one,

Some of the religious leaders of Jesus’ time had committed the unforgivable sin and taken the devil as their god. Jesus identified these people as children of the devil and knowing that fact helps explain so much about them. It explains why they murdered innocent people, why they lied and bribed people, and why they could not rejoice even when something wonderful had occurred like the healing of a man who was born blind. It also explains why they perverted the Word of God and made it hard to obey it. People can be horrible sinners without taking the devil as their god and committing the unforgivable sin. Nevertheless, the Bible has a lot to say about people who have become children of the devil so we know how they are and that they always pervert the ways of God.

“people will be forgiven for every sin and defaming word, but the defaming of the Spirit will not be forgiven.” These words of Jesus Christ are very direct: “every” sin and defaming word can be forgiven except one, a sin he referred to as “defaming” or to “speak against” the Holy Spirit. The definition of “defaming” includes slander, speaking against God, or verbal abuse, and it's clear from comparing the above two verses that Christ is defining defaming as “speaking against” something. Jesus said there is one form of defaming against God that will never be forgiven, and he was referring to a specific defaming, not just speaking against God in general. Many people have at some time been angry at God due to the horrific circumstances of this fallen world, and many have spoken very harshly about God and/or to Him. In fact, it is safe to say that most people have even cursed at God, and yet when they ask for forgiveness, He forgives them. The same is true of other kinds of sin. Many people sin horribly against God but are later forgiven. But there is a defaming that will not be forgiven.

What we learn from the scope of Scripture is that the defaming that cannot be forgiven is a person saying, and truly meaning in the depths of their heart, that satan is the true god. The Bible reveals that the devil can have “children” that is, people who have a unique relationship with him that makes them different from other sinners whose sins can be forgiven. People who are children of the devil have sinned in such a way that they are no longer redeemable, that is, they cannot be forgiven, and it's not possible for them to be saved. The world is full of sinful people, and some of those sinners do very horrible things. Nevertheless, in the spiritual world, there is a difference between people who sin and can be forgiven and people who cannot be forgiven because in their heart of hearts they have taken the devil as their god and have become his “children” and are true enemies of righteousness.

Some people so strongly lust for what they want that in their heart they make satan, or one of his many fronts or idols, their “true” god and provider, and thus become his “children.” These self-centered people turn to satan in order to quickly gain their desires, and in so doing turn away from the true God. The Bible does not describe exactly what a person does to become a child of the devil, but it gives us some important information. Because Christ categorized it as a form of blasphemy, we know it is something that is said, either audibly or by speaking to oneself, but it cannot simply be saying, “I hate God” or “I love the devil,” or something such as that. It has to be fully believed in the heart as well as in the mind. From what we see in Scripture, it occurs when someone completely turns away from God, and confesses and believes in their heart that satan, or one of his many forms—such as money, power, fame, or love—is the true “god” by being their sustainer, provider, or the “lord” of their life.

In the context of the unforgivable sin, it is important that Christians understand “god” in its more basic meaning of sustainer, provider, something that is worshiped or idealized, and something considered of supreme value. To blaspheme God does not mean one has to believe that the devil is actually the Christian God and Father. Nor does it mean a person has to know that the devil is a fallen angel who opposes the true creator God. To commit the unforgivable sin a person only has to truly take the devil or one of his fronts as his own true god and provider. For example, it is unlikely that the Pharisees who were children of the devil had taken “the devil” per se as their god, but rather that they so highly valued their prestige, power, and position that they had in their hearts (If this does not describe Obama and Hillary Clinton. Then I don't know what does) and in doing so made that their god as they turned to the devil via one of his fronts.

The unforgivable sin can be committed by believing and saying in your heart that satan or one of the forms he hides behind and supports is the true sustainer, provider, or object of supreme value in one’s life. No doubt that was what satan was asking Jesus to do when he offered him all the power of the world if Jesus would worship him. The devil was not asking Jesus to think that God did not exist or that satan somehow was, in fact, God, but rather that satan would be Jesus’ true sustainer and provider, the true god of his life. The devil wanted Jesus to become a child of his, which would have been the ultimate coup, but to do so Jesus would have had to “worship” the devil, not just in form, but in the depths of his heart.

In the Bible, the children of the devil are enemies of God and they reflect the devil’s nature. They are envious, murderers, liars, and show no genuine godly concern for humankind. (Just think of the many good beautful Christian people in prison since January 6th.) Throughout history, many people have sensed that, in contrast to the majority of sinners who are simply caught up in their sin, some people are truly evil to the core and are somehow connected to evil spiritual forces, and many of those people are indeed “children” of the devil, just as Christ said. They lead people away from God and are into idolatry or false systems of worship. They rape, murder, and instigate wars. They defame God and the things of God and they lie, and they resent godly leadership and work to weaken it; they sow division. They do the works of the devil and try to pervert the ways of God, and they work to make it hard for people to obey God. Children of the devil will never repent, so believers should follow Christ’s guidance and leave them alone. In contrast, if a person wants to repent and follow Jesus, they are not a child of the devil.

Would it be possible for you to post your own ideas, vs posting annoying long and redundant copies of other men's theology?

Listen.

All the unbelievers are "You are (SPIRITUALLY) of YOUR FATHER, the DEVIL"...

That is everyone who is not born again.. And that is why those "sons' are sent to 'HELL that is created for the DEVIL and His angels".

So, when you are born again.........You change Spiritual Fathers, .... and Now GOD is your "Heavenly Father"

Until then, the Devil is the "father".

And His "children", are these..

“people will be forgiven for every sin and defaming word, but the defaming of the Spirit will not be forgiven.” These words of Jesus Christ are very direct: “every” sin and defaming word can be forgiven except one, a sin he referred to as “defaming” or to “speak against” the Holy Spirit. The definition of “defaming” includes slander, speaking against God, or verbal abuse, and it's clear from comparing the above two verses that Christ is defining defaming as “speaking against” something. Jesus said there is one form of defaming against God that will never be forgiven, and he was referring to a specific defaming, not just speaking against God in general. Many people have at some time been angry at God due to the horrific circumstances of this fallen world, and many have spoken very harshly about God and/or to Him. In fact, it is safe to say that most people have even cursed at God, and yet when they ask for forgiveness, He forgives them. The same is true of other kinds of sin. Many people sin horribly against God but are later forgiven. But there is a defaming that will not be forgiven.

That might be and an example of someone defaming the Holy Spirit is found there when Jesus casts out an evil Spirit and the Pharisees attributed it to Jesus being in League with the Devil, which denied the power and good works of the Holy Spirit. I get it now.
