Most Christians have wondered at one time or another if they have committed the unpardonable sin.
If this is your fear, be encouraged. You have not committed the unforgivable sin. You are not eternally damned. You are not forsaken by God. You are not hated by God. You are not outside the bounds of His love and grace.
Quite to the contrary, you are loved by God more than you possibly know.
You are forgiven. You are accepted. God loves you!
In this book, I show why you have not committed the unpardonable sin. After surveying the various views about blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, I examine Matthew 12:31-32 and show what Jesus meant when He talked about this sin.
The most common theories about the unpardonable sin (also called the unforgivable sin) include the sins of adultery, divorce, murder, and even cursing the Holy Spirit. Not even suicide is the unforgivable sin. While many churches and pastors teach that those who commit such sins cannot be forgiven, this books reveals that all such sins are forgivable by God.
If you have committed adultery, you are forgiven!
If you got a divorce, you are forgiven!
If you had an abortion, you are forgiven!
If a friend of yours committed suicide, this does not mean they automatically went to hell.
If you are afraid that you blasphemed the Holy Spirit, then do not worry any longer, God has already forgiven you for whatever you said or whatever you did.
Even if you cursed God, cursed the Holy Spirit, or said some terrible things to them, they still love you and still forgive you.
Yes, it is true….There is a sin in the Bible which is “unpardonable.” The Bible talks about a sin which cannot be forgiven. But there is so much bad teaching in the church about what this sin is, how it is committed, and whether or not there is hope for those who commit this sin, but you do not need to worry about committing it. Some churches teach that there are seven unforgivable sins in the Bible, or that there is one thing you can say which will cause God to hate you forever, or that if you have done something terrible in your past there is no hope for your eternal soul. All of these teachings are unhealthy! They do not reflect the heart of God, His great love for you, or the infinite forgiveness He has provided to you in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
If there is a sin you have committed which you think is unforgivable, or which makes you think God does not love you, or makes you feel like you cannot be forgiven, do not worry any longer. This book will give you hope for your future and reveal to you the infinite love, grace, and mercy of God for you.
In the end, you will learn that you have not committed the unforgivable sin.
