Another question: Blaspheming the holy spirit

“Anyone who speaks against the son of Man will be forgiven, but I tell you anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.”

Pardon me for all of my questions…But I do have another.

I’m sure this has been a topic before, but what exactly would you be doing to blaspheme the holy spirit?
It was explained to me before that it is the constant denial of your conscience, but I don’t want any false teachings.

Thank you,
Joshua

    Thanks for the help.
    Wow Huck is she doing better now?

    Yeah I think we I’ve come to the conclusion that you shouldn’t EVER claim someone has an evil spirit and is driving out spirits or else you are in danger of this sin.

    Thank you guys for the help.

    Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is a subject I have constantly dealt with my sister on. Bless her heart she will often get into deep depression over it thinking she has lost her salvation. It’s something that can be very misunderstand and confusing.

    At one point she just blew up and swore at God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit etc out her anger, and I guess Satan immediately jumped on that. Many people think that the term “Blasphemy” is equivalent to “cussing” which isn’t true. To “Blasphemy” is to “Deny” or more precisely “To Speak Falsely Against”.

    What Jesus was dealing with was a group of teachers who fully well knew the scriptures. The OT writing is full of Messianic Prophecy, So much in fact that what these group of Pharisees witnessed was indisputable – Jesus was the Messiah! Jesus was indisputably the King of Israel and the Worlds Savior. AND THEY KNEW IT! Jesus was doing Miracles that only God could do.

    But they (these Pharisees) were saying that Satan was doing them – Not God (The Holy Spirit).

    Realize that a Pharisee is a title – The weren’t bad because they were Pharisees, but these particular Pharisee’s were attempting to discredit Jesus so they followed Him around renounced Him.

    Remember – These people only had the Tanakh(Jewish Bible) to follow – not the NT writings. These don’t come until years later. And Jesus taught in the Synagogs so could have been considered a Pharisee (Scribes were a group of men whose task was to generate the scrolls/books for the synagogs. They too would know the teaching simply because they had to reproduce them as a living.) Many of these Pharisees went to John the Baptist and were Baptized by him. Some of the Scribes and Pharisees called Jesus “Rabbi”

    Hope this helps…

  3. Only God knows when this has occurred. This teaching was not given by Jesus in order to throw people into darkness and despair when they sincerely want to please God and be accepted by God. In my view, anyone living who wants to please God and be accepted by God has not committed this sin.

    This sin occurs when a person knows what they are doing, they know that the Holy Spirit is at work doing something, because God has shown it to them, and yet they speak evil of what the Holy Spirit is doing. At this point, God gives them up and the Spirit of God will no longer work to bring them to repentance. They will be unmoved, unwilling and unable to repent or turn to God.

    The Pharisees may have done this when they attributed the works of Jesus to the Beelzebub or the devil. But we cannot even be sure of this. Perhaps Jesus was just warning them. Later on in the Bible many priests believed in Jesus and even Paul, then a chief Pharisee, believed.

    It is clear though that any person who is calling God's miracles works of the devil IS IN DANGER of committing this sin. I don't say that they necessarily HAVE committed this sin. God knows the heart and judges accordingly.
