unpardonable sin

Member
Hi everyone.

recently I’ve been distressed and having intrusive thoughts about the unpardonable sin. I read about it and it scared me deeply. It tormented me so bad I couldn’t sleep and my heart would race.

I decided today to take back my thoughts. Whenever they came, I said how much I love the Holy Spirit. I called the Holy Spirit my friend an comforter and said I would never deny or reject the Holy Spirit.

I was thinking in the car how badly I want to be free from these thoughts. I want to be careless and happy like other people. This is the part where I’m scared I did it.

I imagined myself in the future, looking back on this season and laughing. In the thought, I imagined myself saying. “I don’t know why I was so scared/obsessed over these thoughts”.. and then went on to call the Holy Spirit a ridiculing word.

this thought instantly disgusted and scared me. I prayed to God for forgiveness, that I may never sink into such a mindset. I told Him that this mindset isn’t what I wanted— just a mindset where I wasn’t obsessing and having intrusive thoughts. Even in the back of my mind, what I was intending to say was directed towards the unforgivable sin, and not the Holy Spirit. But in my mind, I imagined myself saying it to the Holy Spirit. It was like a recording was already playing and I knew it was going to say something bad, yet couldn’t pause it. Like it was going though my mind without being in the forefront— as in, not an entirely lucid thought, but still there.

is this the unforgivable sin? I feel so lost. I love and appreciate the Holy Spirit, and I would never say such a thing. I don’t believe for a second that the Holy Spirit is anything negative and I certainly would not say anything like that out loud, yet I imagined myself saying it so carelessly and confident. Please help me. I prayed to God forgiveness and told Him that I would never honestly think, believe, or say such a thing. I take comfort in the fact that the thought of myself saying this disgusted and repulsed me, like I can’t be gone if this is how I feel about the thought of me saying it.

thank you for reading.

Greetings @purpleworm23

The very fact that you are concerned, worried and praying to the Lord would indicate that you have not committed this sin.

Our thoughts can be so invasive and out of our control.

I was condemned for a long time that I may have committed this unforgivable sin.
Try singing a song of praise and rejoice in the Lord when these thoughts arise.

Look at the promises in the Bible

All that the Father giveth Me shall come to me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.
John 6:37

Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Jude verses 24 & 25

1John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
1:6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

If you think about it, according to God's Word , He pardons for every sin, accept one and that is unbelief.

In other words, if you die a Non- Believer or not accepting Christ as your Savior, you have committed the "Unpardonable sin" !

Actually, that isn't "according to God's Word".

Matt 12:31; "Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven.
Mark 3:29; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin"—

Mark 16:14; Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.

It would seem unbelief can be forgiven if some cases.
Also if unbelief could never be forgiven, then no one who became a believer after not believing up to that point could ever be forgiven.

Then, what do those two verses , from the " Word of God", mean to you?

YES!!!, Unbelief is "ALWAYS " forgiven by God but, " Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit " is NOT!

If you die, as a " BELIEVER " you die indwelt with the Holy Spirit in you..
that is NOT " Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit"!

I you die as an Unbeliever, you are not indwelt with the Holy Spirit and that IS "Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit " -or- the "Unpardonable Sin"!

If you say that this is not in the "Word of God" then , you read an entirely different Bible than I do!!!

Yes, people will repent and believe. However, there is a point in the life of a non-believer that God gives them over to a reprobate mind from which it appears there is no turning back.

thank you for reading.
Many people get quite confused about this. Rejecting the Holy Spirit is not the unpardonable sin. It is when you give credit to the holy spirit for evil or give evil credit for what the holy spirit did.

When jesus casted out the demons and the pharisees said he cast demons out in the name of beelzebub Jesus said they will never see the kingdom of heaven. That is the only time Jesus directly judged anyone straight way.

BINGO!!! The Unforgivable SIN would mean the the Holy Spirit NO LONGER deals with you. If you're afraid you've committed it, that's proof that you haven't.
God tells us that All manner of sins will be forgiven, this includes the Blasphemy of God Himself but the Unpardonable Sin or Blasphemy of the Holy Sprit will not!!

God, I believe, is talking about one's physical death...When you die your "Physical Death " AND, you die as a non- believer...then you have committed the Unpardonable Sin.

Until then, God will forgive anything, society may not, but God will forgive anything up to the point of your physical death, as long as you become a Believer!

This is the " Good News " and really guite simple!
