The Unforgivable Sin

The Unpardonable Sin

There is alot of confusion, and frankly, bad teaching, about what the unforgivable sin is. Some say it is not accepting Messiah, some say it is not believing in gifts of the Ruach. Michael on His Blog had an excellent explanation that came from a converstaion we had earlier.

Here is an excerpt:

There's a lot of discussion about whether there is really an "unpardonable sin" in theological circles. According to Yeshua, there is:

Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Ruach HaKodesh shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Ruach HaKodesh, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. (Mat. 12:31-32)

So what does that mean? Could someone have accidentally blasphemed the Holy Spirit and lost their salvation as a result? Not quite; as always, context is key.

The unpardonable sin isn't simply not to recognize the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit or Breath of God, but to attribute a work of the Spirit to the Adversary.

The unpardonable sin is real, from the context of the passage, we can clearly discern the issue is not the identification of Yeshua as Messiah, but attributing the healings and miracles of the Ruach HaKobesh (Holy Breath or Spirit) to Ha'Satan (the adversary.

The Pharisee in this case were saying the healings were of Ha'Satan, not from G-d.

Blessings in Messiah
