Memorable Scripture: No forgiveness

Matthew 12:31
“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.”

The unforgivable sin!
I’m sure you heard this subject a time or two.
If you’re like me, you’ve been told God forgives any sin you commit. Suddenly, here is a sin that isn’t forgiven – blasphemy against the Spirit.
What is blasphemy?
Merriam-Webster defines it as the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God, the act of claiming the attributes of a deity.
Would you show contempt for God if you really believed in God?
Would you claim to be God if you really believed and followed God?
The sin that cannot be forgiven is the sin of unbelief. The unbelieving person cannot receive forgiveness because he will not seek God to be forgiven because of his unbelief.
It’s not that God won’t forgive, it’s the individual won’t seek forgiveness.

  1. The unforgivable sin is attributing the works of God to the devil. Matthew 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
