Tell God Your Blasphemous Thoughts

blasphemous thought

Is it a blasphemous thought to think that you hate God? Of course not! In fact, go tell God what you are thinking. He wants to hear it. Seriously. The last thing God wants is for us to shut ourselves off from Him. So if we are having blasphemous thoughts toward God, the best thing we can do is talk to God about them, so that He can show us how much He loves us, and how the God we think we hate is not actually the God He truly is.

Unforgivable Sin

How can you know if you, or a friend, or relative, have committed the unforgivable sin? You haven’t, and you can make sure you never will. Once you have believed in Jesus for eternal life, the possibility of committing the unpardonable sin becomes an impossibility forever.

1 John 1:9

Some people seem to believe that confession of sin is required for the forgiveness of sin, that you are not forgiven unless you confess. This idea comes from 1 John 1:9, but represents a misunderstanding of the context of 1 John, and the differences between a relationship with God and fellowship with God.

Forgiven

If there is a sin which you believe God cannot forgive, just remember that in Jesus, all your sins are already forgiven. The grace of God runs deeper and wider than most of us will ever know. The ocean of God’s grace never runs dry. The limits of God’s grace are never reached.

One popular view about the unforgivable sin is that it occurs when someone fails to believe in Jesus for eternal life. The idea behind this view is that while God forgives all sin, He cannot and will not forgive a person for refusing to believe in Jesus until they actually believe in Jesus for eternal life.

Is Israel’s Rejection of Jesus as the Messiah the Unforgivable Sin?

unforgivable sin

Some Bible scholars and teachers believe that the unforgivable sin is Israel’s national rejection of Jesus as the Messiah. If this theory is correct, then nobody is able to commit this sin except for the Jewish people living at the time of Jesus Christ. In other words, since we are not Jewish and we are not living at the time of Jesus, we cannot commit this sin.
