I remember many times, as a new Christian, wondering (worrying) if I had somehow committed the “unforgivable sin.” You know, the one Jesus mentions in Matthew 12:31-32:
Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”
Jesus appears to make speaking against the Holy Spirit worse than anything else a person could ever do, including speaking against Jesus Himself. But was does that mean? What exactly is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit? Why is it so seemingly condemned by Christ?
Have I done this?
To complicate things even more, if you begin to study this passage, and its meaning, you will quickly find out that even theologians disagree broadly about what exactly Jesus was getting at here.
Be at Peace! If this is something you have struggled with, if you have ever felt in bondage to the “what if?” of having committed this unforgivable sin, if you want to settle this issue once and for all in your heart, if you want to be Free from this burden forever…
…I have good news.
My friend Jeremy Myers has written a book about just this issue. “Why You Have Not Committed The Unforgivable Sin: Finding Forgiveness for the Worst of Sins” is available now. I had the privilege of being on the review team for this book, and it blessed me deeply.
I know it will bless you too.
Jeremy has packed, in less than 2 hours of reading, an eternal value – Freedom from the weight of worry about committing the “Unforgivable Sin.” He shows why you have not committed this sin by surveying various views about blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, and examining Matthew 12:31-32 to show what Jesus meant when He talked about blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
In the end, you will learn that you have NOT committed the unforgivable sin.
