What is the Unforgivable Sin? A Biblical Analysis

by Jack Wellman on April 8, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

An old friend of mine called me up and wanted to talk with me.  He was troubled in his spirit.  He had doubts about his salvation and whether he had fallen away from the faith.  In his mind, he had committed the unforgivable or unpardonable sin.  Can someone sin a sin so great that God would not forgive?  Is there a sin that God’s grace and mercy can not cover?  Jesus spoke of the unpardonable sin to the religious leaders of His day.  What is this unforgivable sin?

The very fact that he had concerns about committing such a sin was a clear indication that he had not committed it.  Let me explain.   If we come to God and ask for forgiveness, He will forgive us.  I John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”  People have read the scripture of Mark chapter three and Matthew chapter nine.  Mark 3:22-30 states, “And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons.” So Jesus called them over to him and began to speak to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan?   If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.  If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.   And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come.   In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong man’s house.  Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter,   but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” He said this because they were saying, “He has an impure spirit.” The Pharisees said the very same thing in Matthew 9:34.

Biblical Analysis of the Unforgivable Sin

Why did Jesus tell these religious leaders that they could not be forgiven for their blaspheming the Holy Spirit?  First of all, they knew the scriptures.  They had seen Jesus fulfilling the prophecies of the Old Testament.  They saw and heard of the many miracles that clearly had to be from God alone.  They refused to acknowledge Him as God and thus they were inferring Jesus’ miracles were attributable to Satan.  That was blaspheme because they were eye witnesses and so they had no excuse for saying these miracles were from the Devil.  They were guilty of blaspheme, even according to the Old Testament laws, and these men were the only ones who have committed the unpardonable sin.

What is the Only Unforgivable Sin Today?

Today the only sin that is unforgivable  is that of not receiving Jesus Christ as Savoir.  When you reject Jesus, you reject your only possible means of forgiveness and the only way to gain entrance into heaven.  Your fate is sealed.  There is no forgiveness if Jesus is not your Savior.  Humans do not have the power to save themselves or to have their own sins forgiven.  Jesus alone is the only acceptable means to salvation (Acts 4:12).  Not accepting Jesus and rejecting belief in Him is truly the only unpardonable and unforgivable sin that people can commit today. The very fact that my friend was worried about committing the unpardonable sin told me that he had not committed it.  The fact is that he would commit this sin if he refused to believe on Jesus Christ before he died (Acts 16:30-31).  But since he was worried about it, I said that this shows me that you haven’t committed it.  Jesus died for all sins so he, you, and me can have eternal life and escape the Judgment on the Great Day (Rev. 20:12).

Jesus Ministry Misunderstood

Today the only sin that is unforgivable is that of not receiving Jesus Christ as Savoir.

Mark 3 and Matthew 12 involve Jesus Christ’s repeated and widespread public defeat of Satan and his demons. Many readers and theologians have been confused about the true nature of this sin and many have needlessly worried about their salvation due to a great sin that they have committed.  Bear in mind that part of the purpose of Jesus Christ’s ministry was to directly confront the powers of darkness with the light of truth and to do so in a public battle of pure good versus pure evil. The only being in the universe that is more powerful than the Evil One, is God. He is the only One with enough power to bind Satan and forcibly dispossess him.  At Calvary, Satan’s fate was completely and irrevocably sealed.

Jesus’ impressive miracles were freely given in pure kindness and love to release people from obvious suffering and the oppression of horrible evil and frequently of demon possession.  However, the Pharisees had so firmly set their hearts against accepting Jesus as the Messiah that they rejected the obvious truth set before them and perversely twisted it to influence the crowds. They publicly credited the most ultimately evil being in the universe with the very power of God. What they had done, in effect, was to call the precious and Holy Spirit of God, the unclean spirit of Satan. Thus they had charged Jesus Christ with sorcery and of being in league with Satan. These charges are not only appalling and absurd, but extremely serious.

Pharisees, Scribes & Religious Leaders Rejected Jesus

Clearly, the Pharisees, Scribes and religious leaders knew better since the Messiah is clearly revealed in the Old Testament writings, but their own hate for Him blinded them so much that they refused to believe what they must have known, inwardly, was true.  Certainly, they didn’t want to share their religious power with anyone, even the Son of God.  So when they rejected Jesus, they were without excuse since they knew better. They rejected Him Whom they had seen in person and this was deemed unpardonable or unforgivable.

You Can Believe and Accept Jesus Right Now

If someone is worried about having committed the unpardonable sin, that is the very evidence that they have not committed it.  The only unforgivable sin that we must worry about today is rejecting Jesus Christ as our own personal Savior.  The consequences of this are eternal separation from God, which is hell in itself; this is irreversible…unpardonable.  This is the only unpardonable, unforgivable sin that there is.   But this is one that you can wipe away with repentance, and belief and acceptance of Jesus Christ (John 3:16).  If you have believed in Him, then there is absolutely no need for you to worry about committing the unpardonable sin.  You are already His possession and He will not ever caste you away (John 6:37).  Once you are His, no one can snatch you out of the Father’s hand or out of Jesus’ hand (John 10:28-29).  If you want this eternal security right now, all you have to do is to repent or turn away from your sins, confess them to God, and then put your trust in Christ and you will be saved.  If you have already done this then you have now received God’s inheritance rights as a son or daughter of His and can never be lost again. This inheritance is called eternal life, which means when you die and leave this planet you will go to be with the Father in heaven (John 10:28-29).  Plus you’ll never have to worry about committing an unpardonable or unforgivable sin again!  This is exactly why it’s called the Good News.  Now you can find and join a Bible-believing church.  We also invite you to contact us here at What Christians Want to Know so we can share this great news with our staff.   Now if there is anything that’s irreversible, this is it!

Jack, u said dat masturbation works with lust. What if u are married and u are apart bcos u are out of town and u guys talk on phone and sometimes have phone sex with each other. Is that a sin can a man lust after his wife? Or if u masturbate thinking of ur wife that u miss so much is that a sin??

Jack Wellman October 23, 2012 at 12:38 pm

That’s a great question Ernest. I don’t know how to answer that to be honest. I don’t see it as sin for you can lust after your own wife and not be sinning for you can not commit adultery lusting after your God-given wife in my opinion. As for missing her, that I can understand. I don’t know how to answer that my friend. You stumped me on that. I don’t think it is much to worry about since you sound like such a faithful husband. God bless friend.

Hi! Jack i have just explained the answer to that below,and this is according to the Catholic Churches Teachings not the bible. I have to say i have one foot in the enemies camp Catholic Answers. I asked an Apologist about the sin of masturbation,and i was alarmed with the answer that came back. First he said that it was a grievous,and a mortal sin against God. In other words i have committed the unforgivable sin,and that i should kneel down in front of the Tabernacle,and ask Gods forgiveness. Has far has i know there is no such sin has a Mortal sin in the bible,has you will know the answer. I have just came out of hospital,and i am down,in Physical pain,and upset. Could you please give me reinsurance to this mess i am in. I just feel like i am a lost Soul,and i am very depressed. Thanks Jack

I just wanted to intervene for a moment. I was raised in the Catholic church and left at the age of eighteen (as soon as I joined the Corps, really). The Catholic church teaches there are three “degrees” or types of sin; Original, Venial and Mortal.

Mortal sin is that which they teach will cause you to bypass Purgatory and send you straight to Hell if unconfessed before you die.

You need to understand that the Catholic church does not teach eternal security and in fact teaches that you are guilty of the sin of “presumption” for believing in this doctrine.

It is also important to consider their understanding of sin in light of their doctrine on purgatory. Take that away, reconsider eternal security and their defining of sin becomes meaningless.

Catholic doctrine is unique from all Protestant and reformed churches and carries many things that Protestants never hear about or hear incorrectly.

I find myself “defending” the Catholic church a lot but simply to keep the level of redress truthful – not because I believe in their many varied and unique doctrines.

In general, sin is sin. Sin needs to be confessed in order to be forgiven but, once sin IS confessed, it IS forgiven. Repentance is part of the process of Sanctification, I believe. I say this because not all sin is as readily easy to say away from as are other things and this is not the same for all people or for all sin. But repentance is a state of mind about the sin; it is the sinner agreeing with God that it is sin and that it must be abandoned.

J, this is so good. Your statement, “In general, sin is sin. Sin needs to be confessed in order to be forgiven but, once sin IS confessed, it IS forgiven” is spot on the mark of truth and I believe you boiled it all down to what we need to know my friend. Well said and thank you.

Jack Wellman October 29, 2012 at 3:07 pm

An Apologist is not a theologian or a Bible-trained pastor. All sin is an afront to God. Even if we had no sin but one little white lie it would be enough to condemn us to hell. We can not rank sins but we can place ALL sins under the promise that when we confess them, He forgives them ALL…and all means all (1 John 1:9). I truly would not lose sleep over this man’s statement that it is an unforgivable sin. If it was an unforgivable sin, then why would he ever tell you that you “should kneel down in front of the Tabernacle and ask God’s forgiveness?!” This is so unbiblical. If its unforgivable, then why say to ask God’s forgiveness? I thought he just said it was unforgivable. He is so confused. He needs to read more of the Bible like John chapters 3, 6 and 10. Apparently he doesn’t believe the gospel for in Romans 8:38-39 it says, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Now either the Bible is wrong or this Apologist is wrong. Guess who is wrong! LOL Rom 8:33 says, “Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies” so this apologist can not bring any charge against those whom God has chosen!

The icing on the cake (all of Romans 8 is actually) is Romans 8:29-20 “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” Do you feel better my friend after reading God’s own words? I’m sorry but this Apologist needs to study theology and read his own Bible instead of confusing statements like “you have committed the unforgivable sin…so you should ask for God’s forgiveness!” What?!

I forgot to say, when you have confessed your sins to you my brother`s and sister`s,and of course to God,and i believe i am forgiven. What is meant by “Accept Freely Christ`s payment for my sins” I went a full 7 days without committing the sin of masturbation,i fell,but then i am up,and i havn`t committed this sin now for 5 days This has never happened before. I can only think that it`s the work of the Holy Spirit,because it`s becoming less. What is this payment for my sins.

Mr A Cotton October 23, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Ernest according to the Catholic Church all of what you said is a sin,evan lusting after your own wife is a sin. They make the rules up,and to put icing on the cake your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. So according to the Catholic Church if you masturbate it`s a mortal sin. The rules they make up on sex in marriage are amazing. If you LUST thats the sin,wife or no wife,but if you use the word LIKE to your wife thats different.
I left the Catholic Church quite some time ago,and i stumbled on this site. It was very hard to say the words to Jack that i masturbated. Thats not to say all Catholic Priests agree with this. Their are Rogue Priests i saw him,and he said you are doing nothing wrong. He explained a lot about this sin. You could suffer from Stress,or Anxiety (Mental Health) this would cause you to do it. It`s a good job the Catholic Church didn`t write the bible.

@Jack I really apprieciate your honesty, it has really helped. My brother Cotton I still believe masturbation is a sin of the flesh lusting to be satisfied. I have heard a Pastor preached that it is not a sin because you are not into it with anyone but yourself. But as the bible says “if your spirit convicts you, then it is a sin that needs to be repented of”. We need to seperate the flesh from the Spirit! ead Romans 8.

COC March 7, 2013 at 9:22 am

Really? All sins are equal in God’s eye?

1 John 5:16, 17
“If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that. All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.”

All wrong doing is sin. This is true and clear. However, in these two verses there is sin that leads to death and there is sin that does not lead to death. How can all sin be equal in God’s eye if the Bible tells us otherwise.

PS. I’m not Catholic. So don’t assume I am advocating Catholicism.

I humbly apologise if i have upset any one. I was merely pointing out the Catholic Churches teaching to the bible. The Catholic Church has a lot to answer for. They made my nerves that bad i suffered with Alopecia,and my mother went down to the school to tell them to leave me alone. One of the biggest Anti-Popes was Alexandra VI (Rodrigo Borgia) If you read what this guy done it will make your hair stand up. Again i must stress i did not mean to offend anybody in any way. Thats what turned me away from that church in what it teaches,and turned me to the truth the Bible.

I am really confused Gar.
Are you addressing me in your post.
If you are I have never evan mentioned that anyone is mad.
The other point every sin in Gods Eyes is equal. I would say that one is debatable. Example- 1. A boy steals an Apple from a shop. 2. Judas betrayed Jesus.

Ok, Been reading down through these posts, trying to wait for the appropriate time to put in my 2 Cents worth as long as I can bear. I see no end to them and each gets me a little more unfamiliar with the small thought I did have in my brain.

First- Gar, a tad odd because you were the last I read. All sin absolutely can NOT be equal in God’s eyes. For if it were, then how would it be possible for anyone to commit the UNPARDONABLE sin? That is the GREATEST sin, greater than any other by far. So is it as equal in God’s eyes as any or all others? It is the ONLY one that is unforgivable, and what is more, it is not possible that ANY person has committed it as of this time. Sorry to those who believe differently, I know your out there but that’s a whole “nother” can of worms, I’m sure you’ll agree to that.

Second- I just wanted to attempt to tactfully say… The Catholic thing, OMG! I admittedly may not know as much as I think I know about the Catholic Church, as an entity, itself. But I have however, known many people who are or used to be/were as someone indicated above. From the perspective of an average person, using information not obtained but gathered and retained. An intellectual perspective that is a mix of relative, subjective and at least somewhat biased opinions, outlooks and expectations. Even personal hopes and fears form ones sense and idea of what is real and right and truth. Everything we experience in out life shapes us, often subtly so.

So we have to try our best to discern truthfully and correctly right? At least most of us? I hope.

Wow! Sorry, tangent attack. All I was going to say was that from my experiences & stuff, the Catholic peoples in estimation tend to be and go VERY heavy on the whole fear and guilt thing. I will not delve into anything else here.

Does not the bible tell us that as in the flesh ONLY Christ was capable of living without sin. We ARE going to sin and fall short of the glory of God, been man’s in the flesh struggle all along.

There are different severities of sin. You can sin against your health, flesh, family, God and so on. Obviously eating a pork chop is breaking a health law, it’s a sin, but not against your salvation. You might get sick for not feeding our flesh bodies as Father instructed, but it will in no way prevent the salvation of your inner man, that is to say your soul. (In my humble opinion) This is for all intents and purposes just “My opinion”, I understand that as I hope do others. Not worth getting bent about, it’ll all be ok. Father is on the throne and He is in control.

There was one more thing but my brain has gotten too distant and distracted from where it started out. Thanks for putting up with me and suffering me to post my belies, thoughts and opinions.

Humbly & sincerely,
Samuel A. Huber

I fully understand you now Gar.Yes you are quite right about the mortal sin,and i agree with you that you have to confess the sin,and that you are very sincere that you have offended God in committing this sin. Then God understands this and forgives you,because you have asked God to Help you.
But again i must stress that i am on this site to help people if i can,and not to upset people. Yes i have asked Jack a lot of question`s,and Jack has helped me a lot. I hope this has cleared things up. Again i must apologise if i have caused you any stress.

Mr. Cotton,

How are you?? I have a question for you, where does the concept of purgatory come from in the catholic faith? I have always had this question and I have never read this in the Bible,so, I have always wondered where that came from!!

Mr A Cotton October 31, 2012 at 12:39 pm

I have just come out of hospital with a big lump just under my jawbone,and i am waiting for the tests to come back. About Purgatory Dereck. For a start it`s not in the bible. The Catholic Church made it up! In theory we are committing sins now (I am no longer a Catholic) so you went to confession to get your sins forgiven by the priest,and he gave you a penance to do,say three Hail Mary`s,and you would think that`s that No. All the sins you have committed are added up in theory so when you die your soul is not very clean. So you go to Purgatory to suffer more until you are clean of sin altogether.When thats done you go to Heaven. If you have committed a mortal sin say masturbation,and you die you go to Hell. So you could say Purgatory is a stop off place to clean yourself properly. This is the kind of stuff that the Pope,and the Cardinals make up. The Pope is the head of the church on Earth,but like you,and i no different now, Jesus Christ is the head of the Church. Has it states so clear in the bible. If you were to ask 10 Catholics who is the head of the church today. They would say the Pope. When i was at school they brainwashed you using fear. It made me that bad it gave me Alopecia(Hair Loss Due to Nerves)and my mother went down to sort it out,and they left me alone after that.

Christopher October 28, 2012 at 2:40 am

I know I posted before but would still like to talk about my worries.

So my worry isn’t exactly blaspheming the Spirit although in the past during my ignorance and lustful ways (I am 18 now) I said to God that I would not pray to him again because I wanted to be left into my own lusts and to look at porn – but now I feel stupid for saying that as I can see that lust doesn’t help us at all especially for the next life to come.

During my unbelief, first I started off as a believing Christian and even was writing a book about how evil lust and sex is before I was seduced into Satanism and the free style of living ‘Do What Thou Wilt.’ During this time I had read a lot of atheists thoughts about the Bible especially the Old Testament and even joined in mocking God Yahweh as I believed him to be evil as I read a lot of atheist reviews on the Bible.

Back then I hardly studied or knew much about the Old Testament so of course seeing what may have been in that book despite me not fully understanding it – I took the atheists side and mocked and blasphemed Gods behaviour and the Prophets like Moses who killed people – but I do realize there is a meaning to it all and even though I read what Satanists had to say about God, God’s love is so strong and I hate myself for ignoring the goodness of God and him warning us about Satan. I blasphemed and cursed God and joined Satan instead – but now I have done a lot more research into religion and there definitely is a reason why I keep going back to Christianity.

Though yes I do feel really regretful for turning my back in the first place – to be honest I have turned me back at least 3 times; being seduced into atheism or Satanism back and forth as my belief got weaker – I anyway deep down hate violence and I too hate how Satanism uses curses or hexes on enemies. That is why I look to someone like Jesus Christ who is such a wonderful figure.

But yeah it scares me when I think about Jesus saying the person who blasphemes the spirit will not be forgiven. So even though I may not be forgiven, I still really want to try* and remain as pure as can be.

Thanks for reading this long post.

Jack Wellman October 28, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Hello Christopher. I am touched by your difficult journey. You said, “even though I may not be forgiven.” Please, let me point you to 1 John 1:9 which says that if we confess our sins (which you are doing) to God He will cleanse us and forgive us of all our sins and so you can know for sure that He will forgive you Christopher. All of us are no better than you…we ALL need forgiveness for we ALL sin (1 John 1:8. 10). Please trust in Christ to save you and to forgive you. All you need do is to repent (which it appears you want to), confess your sins (which appears that you also want to do) and He will forgive ALL your sins. You can not remain pure on your own but in the power of Christ, you can do all things, including being made righteouss in His sight by the blood of the Lamb.

Dereck October 29, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Hi Christopher,

Also, think about this, Jack likes to point out 1 John 1: 9, I like to point out the sinner that was crucified beside Jesus and believed who Jesus was at the last moment before he died. Now, if Jesus can do that for him, we have the book, He will take care of us, if we believe. We have to just take him at his word.

I have believed in God almost my whole life, but, I still did my own thing. I am so mad at myself for allowing the flesh to control me. It was just so wrong, a believer is not suppose to do what I was doing.

Christopher, just believe and that will help you a great deal.

Pece and Love

Christopher,

I also felt moved to respond to your post and story.

Seems to me that too many good Christians spend too much time and effort beating themselves up, a bit too much as will occur with a prevalent guilt and fear thing.

I wasn’t going to open this here in this place but I now feel compelled to put it out there, for all to do with what they will. Although my position can be soundly backed up and supported by scripture, I am not going to take the time and space to do so here. I apologize beforehand if that upsets anyone too much. I would think anybody who is a bible student might see this and go “Yeah, I know it talks about that somewhere in the Bible.” Then maybe you’ll be moved to look into it for yourself.

Here goes, as I said earlier, NOBODY can have committed the unpardonable sin as of yet, the circumstance under which it could occur has not as of yet presented itself or come to pass.

Ready for another possibly inflammatory comment? To some at least, I’m sure…

The unpardonable sin can ONLY be committed by one of God’s elect. God’s elect= upright ones, saints, set aside ones. The ones that will teach with Christ during the millennium. There is much scripture pertaining to the elect, but in Rev. Ch. 20 Vs. 4 and 6 it talks of them. Says that God’s elect shall reign as priests with Christ one thousand years, that is speaking of the millennial period when all will be in spiritual bodies, and with Satan cast into the pit for that time, unable to interfere in any way, the Word of GOD will be taught like crazy. What do priests do? They teach the Word of God. So God’s very elect will be helping to teach all who want to hear and learn, for then there will be no doubts, no if’s and’s or maybe’s. Everyone will be able to hear and see what we are blind to in the flesh and in this dimension.

So, ONLY the elect, when they are delivered up to the synagogues of Satan, which will only happen once and it will be near the time of Christ’s return. So it Can’t even happen yet, and only God’s elect can commit this unpardonable sin. It consists basically of this, as it is written of in Mat. 10:19 and Mark 13:11 When the elect are delivered up before the synagogues of Satan to witness against him, they are not to premeditate what they shall say/speak, for it will be given to them “in that same hour”. By the Holy spirit I will add. And as is also written, it will not even be them that speak, but the Holy spirit will speak THROUGH them. ATTENTION here… for one of God’s elect to refuse the Holy spirit to speak through them at that time, and that one time only, is the blaspheming of the Holy spirit so many refer to as that highest of sins, so in a way they are right.

Ok, did all catch that?
One of the elect refusing to allow the Holy spirit to speak through them at that time, spoken of in Mark, Mathew and other places, it the ONLY way to, and the ONLY ones who can commit the unpardonable sin. There is, simple as that. Makes sense does it not? God’s word declares it and I believe it.

That’s all, too deep of a subject. Think about it, maybe check it out in the Word to see if it floats.

Respectfully & Humbly,
Samuel A. Huber

Hello Jack and Gar,

I have listened to all kinds of people who have predicted the end of the world and I think that it is sad. Don’t they read the book!!!!??? Some of the people I have liked such as Pat Robertson. If God does not let Jesus know when, then what makes people think that they would know, my advice is to just hunker down and read the book (the Bible), and stay in prayer for each other!!!

Peace and Love

Dereck

I can not find your original post Nichole so I am putting it here at the end of the posts on this article. I still see that you too often mention “I feel” so I would add that human feelings and emotions are the most unstable and unreliable source of our salvation because God alone stands firm in His promise to forgive us of all of our sins (1 John 1:9) and we are accounted righteous because He who knew NO sin became sin FOR us so that we might become or have imputed to us, the righteousness of Christ (1 Cor 5:21).

Jude 22 says that we are to be “Be merciful to those who doubt” so it is normal to doubt occasionally but not to remain in doubt for we are close to calling God a liar Who has declared us righteous. NONE of us are worthy to be honest. Read of Paul’s struggle in Romans 7:19 he said, ” For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing” and declared in verse 24, “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?” but then he answers this question in verse 25 “Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!”.

I believe the enemy is attacking you spiritually which most often happens when we are overcoming a major obstacle or sin and when we have experienced or are experiencing growth and after a significant milestone or victory. The Enemy hates this but the good news is that if you are being attacked spiritually, you know that you are on the right side! Satan only persecutes and attacks those who are threatening his kingdom of darkness.

Nicole…I still can not find your original and your last post. So I pray you get this. Your husband knows you better than anyone next to God and he is right. A genuine Christian is hungry to learn more about God and reads the Bible and attends worship service regularly. Think about this. Among those who call themselves Christian, only 1 in 5 attend where Christ is present…the Body of Christ is the church. I truly believe the enemy is putting this in your head because the Holy Spirit does not do this. The Holy Spirit reassures us of our standing before God…the Enemy casts flaming arrows of doubt at us. You must believe God, believe you husband, and me. In the Bible, where there are two or more witnesses, a thing is established. Believe Him and His Word.

I know this is a long post from me but it is so important. I urge you to read 1 John…all of it. Its a short book and I am preaching out of it right now just for the very purpose of reassuring people that they are saved and can not ever be lost again (John 6:37, John 10:28-29). There are dozens of you can “know” about your salvation in 1 John. Read these verses too in the gospel of John (6:37, 10:28-29) too and see how much you can trust God. Jesus can not lie! You must believe what He says. Your feelings are so untrustworthy, like mine, but God is full of truth and never errs and so we must believe Him even if our eyes or minds lies to us. The Devil makes us doubt but Jesus removes all fear and doubt.

Guilt verses Conviction

I have probably spoken with hundreds of people over my lifetime who struggle with guilt. And by “hundreds” I mean Christians. So many believers are living with guilt over their sins of the past and those that they still battle with, however there is a world of difference between human guilt and the conviction by the Holy Spirit.

Guilt is like Satan accusing the brethren before the throne of God, day and night (Rev 12:10). Even though we are forgiven we are naturally not perfect. Guilt says that we are worthless, hopeless, and have no chance to be saved. We have too much baggage to possibly be saved, even by God. Guilt says, “Who do you think you are! What makes you think that you are a Christian…just look at what you do?” Guilt takes us away from God. Conviction is different. Conviction points us to God and of our need of forgiveness. When we sin, and we all do (1 John 1:8), we feel God the Holy Spirit showing us that we need to go to God and ask for cleansing, which He promises to do (1 John 1:9). We are convicted about our sin but not about our relationship before God.

Do you have unnecessary guilt? Yes you do! God’s grace is available to you. God has forgiven you…now you must learn to forgive yourself. Thank God for the conviction of the Holy Spirit this points us to our need to go to God. Guilt makes us feel afraid and unworthy to go to Him. Conviction makes us run to God for a cleansing of our sin. Guilt wants to make us severe the relationship with God…conviction makes us run into His presence for forgiveness. Guilt leads to condemnation…conviction leads to repentance. That’s a huge difference. If you know the difference, you would do well and have more peace of mind.

And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin (NOT guilt) and righteousness and judgment. John 16:8 (NASB)

Hello.I have one question but please do not take this as a joke.My question concerns the man of sin who was said to be doomed from the beginning.Am I correct by saying that God put it in his heart to do the things which are spoken of in the bible to test the hearts of men or does he have a choice in the matter?How can anyone be doomed from the beginning?

Reply

Jack Wellman March 12, 2013 at 10:45 am

Thank you Brian for your question. God did not put evil in anyone’s heart that they would be doomed from the beginning. When Judas betrayed Jesus, it was said that “Satan then entered his heart.” God knows the future and the end from the beginning, but everyone has free will to choose. It is that God knows what our choices will be.

Adam and Eve chose to disobey God and they had to live with the consequences. God does not tempt any human as James wrote (1:13), “When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone.”

Ernest March 12, 2013 at 4:02 pm

Yes Jack I agree abt Adam and Eve’s case but what abt Lucifer having it at the back of our minds dat we are the only free moral agents created by God. So hw did evil nw entered into the heart of Lucifer? The tree of good and evil was created by God. So I to believe that since Jehovah is all knowing He allow Lucifer to do what he did so that we will have a choice of either following Him(God) or satan.pls correct me if am wrong.

I believe Ernest that this link will provide you with a better answer than I can in a short comment and this article is called “Is There Really a Being Called Satan?” at: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/is-there-really-a-being-called-satan/

You might also like “If God is Love, What is Satan?” at: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/if-god-is-love-what-is-satan/

The tree of good and evil was created by God and knew that Lucifer would tempt and cause Adam and Eve to sin but this is why Jesus was said to be slain from the foundation of the world, knowing that we humans would need a Savior. Evil entered Lucifer’s heart by pride. Read the articles to see how it happened. He wanted to take over God’s position and throne. Pride was the first sin in the universe and caused Lucifer to be filled with pride and caused his fall.

I was reading this about the Reluctant Messenger. God gave the 3 Archangels a gift each.
Michael- Eternity, Gabriel- Awareness, Lucifer- Infinity
God saw that they were doing well especially Lucifer so God put him in charge of Earth. After a while Lucifer new what Gods plan was for the people of Earth that they would be just like Lucifer.
Lucifer did not like this so he began an uprising. God ordered Michael to cast out Lucifer and his angels from Heaven.
Michael did this,and Lucifer fell like a star to Earth which was bad news for us,because God did not relieve Lucifer of his duties on Earth. Lucifer became evil,and when he could he could create Evil on Earth. He had the power to do men evil,which he does. God gave us the power to follow God or Lucifer. So we did have a had a choice,and still do, Evil is the lack of God in our hearts.

Jack Wellman March 13, 2013 at 9:44 pm

Great points my friend. We have free will and if we choose to follow God He gives us the power to conquer evil and so yes, there is free will but God knowing the future knows what our choice will be. Thanks…so good.

Thank you Genesis for your comment. As long as a person repents and is sorry for their sin, they will be forgiven (1 John 1:9) and so there is no reason to feel troubled because we ALL still sin (1 John 1:8, 10). You must believe what 1 John 1:9 says and 2 Cor 5:21 says. You are washed cleaner than snow, and forgiven all your sins once you have confessed them.

Sharon October 20, 2013 at 12:05 am

I laughed and cursed the Holy Spirit at one time and immediately I could feel the conviction to my soul. I prayed and asked God’s forgiveness and He told me that He forgave me but that because I knowingly did what I should not that my trials would take longer time.
I now feel that I have come through but now I feel lost and have lost the feeling of joy and love that I once had. I can’t seem to get back and my mind seems to war against me.

Jack Wellman October 20, 2013 at 6:38 pm

Sharon…anyone that is worried about committing the unpardonable sin has not done it. The conviction shows that you have the Holy Spirit in you and so now you must learn to forgive yourself. To do that, guess what? We have an article just for this purpose at this link:

I’ve made Jesus my saviour, but constantly worry that I won’t repent of everything. thanks for your articles, they have br ought me much comfort. in not sure why I’m struggling with fear a nd doubt lately, I’ve been a Christian my whole life!

Reply

Jack Wellman March 26, 2013 at 12:38 pm

Stephanie…we have all had doubts of our salvation so you are not alone. Let me ask you this. How many of your sins were ahead of you when Christ died for you? The answer is ALL of them. We are covered by the blood of the Lamb, and so any unconfessed sin left unconfessed before we die is also covered. Please don’t doubt what God has done in securing you by His Word (read John 10:28-29, John 6:37).

The difference between human or doubt from the Devil and conviction from the Holy Spirit is that the Devil makes you want to believe you are beyond saving, but the Holy Spirit makes you want to come for cleansing to remove all doubt.

I urge you to read 1 John…all of it. Its a short book and its just for the very purpose of reassuring people that they are saved and can not ever be lost again (John 6:37, John 10:28-29). Read these verses too and see how much you can trust God. Jesus can not lie! You must believe what He says.

Guilt makes us feel afraid and unworthy to go to Him and run away from Him. Conviction makes us run TO God for a cleansing of our sin. Guilt wants to make us severe (cut off) the relationship with God…conviction makes us run into His presence for forgiveness. Guilt leads to condemnation…conviction leads to repentance. That’s a huge difference. If you know the difference, you would do well and have more peace of mind.

I see what you are saying Stephanie but “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”(Rom 8:1). Notice that Paul didn’t say “unless you sin again.” No, Jesus said in John 11:26 “whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” and”John 6:47 “Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.” and John 6:58 “This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.”

Jesus NEVER qualifies His word that “except if you sin again. “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” (John 5:24).

I have come up with a difficult problem?
I know,and accept God has forgiven my sins,but the problem now is that I can`t forgive myself.
I think it`s a lack of faith in God,because I keep asking God to forgive me for the same sin at least 3 or 4 times during the day.
It`s a case of being reassured that he has forgiven me.
A catholic priest said you are your own worst enemy,and he is right, forget about it and move on. I have had this weakness all my life that I want to be reassured evan from docter`s.

Reply

Jack Wellman May 27, 2013 at 12:10 pm

I believe that priest is correct sometimes. We are our own worst enemy or more specifically, our doubting mind is. Please know that there is no sin that God will not forgive. Even David was a murderer and adulterer but God cleansed him completely. You must think of it this way. Are your standards for forgiveness higher that God’s? If God says that when we confess our sins He is just and faithful to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness and to purify us in His sight (1 John 1:9) and so you must believe God’ Word over your own feelings. Which is more certain? Our doubts or God’s Word? There is only ONE sin that God will not forgive and that is to reject Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. You obviously have not done that!

Please, please unload your guilt. Jesus paid it all for ALL sins and became sin for us so that God sees us as having Jesus’ righteousness (2 Cor 5:21). Psalm 103 says that He removes our sin as far as east is from west (which never meet!).

Ultimately it is God against whom we have sinned. If you are carrying guilt because of sin and you can’t seem to get rid of it, then you need to realize that there is no sin you have committed that cannot be cleansed by the loving sacrifice of Christ. It is not an issue of you forgiving yourself. The issue is whether or not God forgives you. So, if you have gone to the cross and you know that Jesus has already forgiven you, loves you, and will receive you to himself, the you must forgive yourself for you can not have a higher standard than God. Jesus said to come to Him “All who are weary and burdened and cast all your cares upon Him.” Trust Him. God can not lie. You are forgiven and so why should you not forgive yourself? You can’t have a higher standard than God, right?

Read all of Romans 8 and that should make you feel better.

I was in a very deep depression,and I went to bed called out to God to lift this. I screamed,shouted in my head,and I went off to sleep God heard my prayer. I woke up,and God lifted the depression,and I found this to be very profound.
The other thing I do not want to do, this is a Green light light to sin again,but I know in my heart I will not do this.
I think of all the things that you said,and now I know it`s the guilt. To make sure I am going to take a screen shot of your post,and then I can read it to lay my doubts to rest. Thanks again for pulling me up with your words of wisdom Jack.

Hello Anthony…I am SO glad you commented. Let me say that if someone is worried about having committed the unpardonable sin, that is the very evidence that they have not committed it. The only unforgivable sin that we must worry about today is rejecting Jesus Christ as our own personal Savior.

As I have said before…and please read this very carefully. We must not call God a liar? How do we do that? We must believe what God says and believe in Him or we show we don’t trust Him and He says that He forgives us of our sins when we confess them (1 John 1:9).

Read all of Romans 7 to see how mightily Paul still struggled, even being an apostle, and then his conclusion in Romans 8 and that should make you feel better. Copy this and paste this comment to a word document and then read it and re-read it, following and reading the Scriptures in your own Bible. I believe you will be released from all fear for God has not given us a spirit of fear but of peace.

I do hope I could give you some reassurance that you DO have the Holy Spirit for a person that is worried about losing their salvation must be first concerned about it and this is a sign of the Holy Spirit working in you to convict you of your past sins perhaps. Stay in the Word, the Bible my friend, Romans 8, John chapter 3 and 10, and in I John and you will find peace of mind there.

How do you know that people can’t commit this sin today unless they reject God? If He meant that the unforgivable sin was rejecting Him then wouldn’t we all be unforgivable? Others seem to think that the unforgivable sin can be committed today. Who is right and how do I know?

Jack Wellman June 15, 2013 at 9:46 am

I don’t know but I do know what God knows and in Romans 8 there is sufficient reason to believe this. If you don’t know, I can not convince you. In your view then, no one could be saved if “the unforgivable sin was rejecting Him then wouldn’t we all be unforgivable.”

Romans 8 (all of it), John 10:28-29, John 6:37….which of these is wrong?

I wasn’t trying to say that it’s my view that no one can be saved, I was just confused. I re-read part of the article and now I see that I misunderstood part of what it said. I apologize. I should have read more carefully. I have another question though. If one of the religious leaders that Jesus was speaking to repented of what they said, would Jesus have forgiven him?

Reply

Jack Wellman June 15, 2013 at 10:16 am

Yes “Anonymous”, they would have been forgiven since all who repent, confess their sins and put their trust in Him will be or then, would have been saved. Nicodemus was one such example who moved from disbelief (John 3) to belief. Nicodemus was a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin, who, according to the Gospel of John, showed favour to Jesus after His death. He appears three times. Nicodemus visits Jesus one night to discuss his teachings with him. (John 3:1–21); The second time Nicodemus is mentioned, is when he states the law concerning the arrest of Jesus during the Feast of Unleavened Bread (John 7:45–51). In fact, John 7:50-51 reveals that he was one of Jesus’ own and even tried to defend Him at the illegal trial of Christ, “Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked, 51 “Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?”

The last time Nicodemus appears in the Bible is Crucifixion, when he assists Joseph of Arimathea in preparing the corpse of Jesus for burial (John 19:39–42).

Reply

You are right my friend…there would be no conviction of sin without the Holy Spirit IF it were possible to lose the Holy Spirit but another indication would be that they would not be producing good fruit but bad fruit (compare the fruits as evidence of having or not having the Holy Spirit in Gal 5 I believe it is).

I think I blaspheme against the holy spirit because I swore at the holy spirit but It was in my mind and not intentionally. Please let me known If I have the the unforgivable sin.

Anyone that is worried about committing this sin has obviously not committed it and today, the only sin which can not be forgiven or will be forgiven at Christ’s return is not believing in the only name by which we can be saved…Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).

Not believing in Christ, the name above all names is unpardonable and anyone who has done this will suffer the consequences. If you blaspheme the Holy Spirit and it becomes embedded in your heart. This sin cannot be pardoned because it becomes permanent.

Thank you Mr. Gonzalez. Can you show me where this sin is in the Bible against Christians? What about 1 John 1:9 and 2 Cor 5:21? Does it say in 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness….except for blaspheme against the Holy Spirit? No, it says He will forgive us of ALL of our sins and purify us from ALL unrighteousness. The only unpardonable sin is rejecting Jesus which you said in the first part of your comment and which is right.

Hi Jack,
How are you. Your articles are so nice to read. It’s in matthew 12: 31 – 32
Matthew 12:31-32
New King James Version (NKJV)
The Unpardonable Sin

31 “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. 32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.

So Mr. Gonzalez, are you Pharisee? Are you one to the religious leaders? Are you one of these who attributed the miracles of Jesus to Satan? If so, then yes, you have committed the unpardonable sin. Was this written you? Was this written to us? No, it was written to the religious leaders who gave credit to Satan for the miracles and that is blaspheme. Please understand sir, I am not trying to debate with you. I do not wish to do so. All of the Bible was written FOR us but not all of the Bible is written TO us, otherwise we can read the verses “Judas went out and hanged himself….you go and do likewise….whatever you do, do it quickly.”

Otherwise you are insinuating that John 6:37 says “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out” unless you blaspheme the Holy Spirit and

John 6:39 “And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day” ” unless you blaspheme the Holy Spirit and
John 10:28-29 “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand” unless you blaspheme the Holy Spirit.

We are born again, born from above literally (John 3:3) and God has not still born or aborted children.

Sir, please don’t plant doubts in people’s minds for that is what you are doing. You are making them fearful that they could lose their eternal life. Jesus gives us eternal life and He is not one to take it back!

I am sorry…I did not mean to insinuate that you were a Pharisee. I was just asking if you were one in the sense that if you were, this was being spoken to you. Who was Jesus talking to? You, me, the disciples? No, he was talking to the religious leaders who said that Jesus had a devil and attributed His miracles to satanic power. I am not judging you. Where did I sir? I am only judging whether what you said was true or not. I am sorry but perhaps I didn’t say it in the right way and so I apologize sir.

Mr. Gonzalez, thank you for your wonderful comments sir. I too want to be friends and I am sorry if I came across too strongly. I suppose that is my reaction when I feel that something is not correct in what I read in the Bible. I too want to be friends as we are brothers in Christ.

Hello everyone,

Been looking for an answer for this question myself for the last week, I feel sick to my stomach hearts been racing non stop cant eat ect,
Basically was a so called Christian at birth parents got divorced never spoke about god again really,
As I got older i concluded I was an athiest,
Last week i watched this documentery I won’t go into specifics but at the end something in me changed and i was a believer,
So I thought first thing ill do is check to see if there is a sin if someone disowned god, seemed to be safe their,
Then I find the unforgivable sin and go ok here we go its like gods pointing me to this i feel like my mind will not allow itsself to accept this as anything less than I have done it,
So then my memories go flooding back to a time around four years ago i was drunk and my uncle was telling me when I was born my eyes were going around looking at all the lights ect, I said to him so do you reckon I was a child of saitan? He was like “haha probibly”, at the time I didnt think anything of it i thought it was funny because I ment it in a context like I was always in trouble and doing bad things as a kid,

So last week i learned alot like I didnt even know why jesus was sent here ect now I understand and believe so i asked jesus to come into my life and prayed to god ect ect,
But like yesterday I thought I was doomed before i even started so i was angry and I was supposed to say in my head am I so bad like god cannot will not forgive me for something I didnt even know and I said maybe i was sent from the devil?,
Meaning like I feel like he ownes me makes me think I’m to bad to be saved always in my head making me think blaspheme thoughts basically everything I believe my brain demon is telling me the opposit,

So if you go through all the hits on google in regards to this sin why is their so many different opinions?
And the ones that freak the sh*t out me is how someone will say to give the devil credit for gods work, I basically said i was the child of satan, isnt that the same thing as someone telling jesus the same thing even though I don’t do miracles but Arnt kids ment to be gods miracles?,

Also I read that sins carry over from the Old Testament to the New Testament so this blaspheme sin would carry over wouldnt it?.

So sorry for the big post and questions just figure I should include my whole story to get the right answers.
Thanks.

Jacob.

I’m the most lonely and scared person in the world right now.
When I was 18 I met a man, he was a Muslim I fell in love with him he treated me pretty badly.9 years&he decided he loved me&did everything the right way. I was patient and loyal to him he realised I was worth it. I moved to be with him&met his family they were not overjoyed but were friendly considering their religions attitude to ‘kaffirs’Never gave the religious differences much thought but as I started to get to know them all I realised why he’d been the way he’d been for so many years& I  realised that Islam is the greatest trick of the devil and the greatest divider and destroyer. I started to research it, for example ‘halal’ is the name of Satan in the original Hebrew text I read the Quran too. One morning I woke up with the words ’77 days’ in my head. It felt profound I was moved to open my bible to psalm 77 it talked about crying out to god in despair it encompassed all the feelings I’d been having.
From that day on I began to randomly open my bible I started to voice my opinion to my partner about the evils of Islam&about his need for Jesus the great wiper away of tears the great comforter. I told him it is ok to cry to be weak to be human. As time went by every day I’d open maybe 5 or 6 times&it was always specific to my life. As this happened my partner began to become aggressive&volatile and sometimes just silent. Spiritual warfare was present in my home. One example is he grabbed me the once by the collar of my coat&threw me ro the ground. I opened to job ‘he grabs you by the collar of your coat&throws you into the dirt’ 
One day he got angry& tore up my bible. I rebuked him in Jesus name&he fell to the floor&sobbed like a child. That night he apologised for the first time ever in 12 years (by that point) he told me lots of awful things that happened to him as a child. I kind of knew he’d been abused it’s part of the religion this superiority&godliness given to the men of the family that makes them believe they can do whatever they want. I held him tight&we agreed to get a new bible the following day. When I woke up there was a rainbow I felt entirely filled with the holy spirit I felt amazing despite all he’d told me the night before I felt truly blessed. When we got home after a very emotionally close day we prayed together and then out of the corner of my eye I saw a page from my bible under the ironing board&I started to weep and said to him look that’s a message for you. I had cleaned the whole room the night before. I was so excited so filled with the holy spirit. It was Isaiah 48&yes it was for him. He was visibly moved but got angry&stormed off upstairs for the evening. I praised god. Things got worse&so I left him for a week and he didn’t call me even once& I was tearful and sad but walking down the road I saw a lady who looked extremely out of place standing on the corner dressed in purple. She smiled at me&waved&I felt an amazing feeling of love like ive never felt from anyone in my life. I went into the pub and saw a man sitting on a stool. He looked very Jewish. Round olive face, hooked nose he was staring at me almost through me I was terrified I felt he was watching me. Anyway in time my partner called and was upset and said he didn’t want to lose me. We spoke for five hours and I guess thats where my rebellion began. He said he wanted to get to know Jesus. I sent him home&when I slept that night I felt Jesus arms around me. I had a dream that I could t get across a lake&my partner told me he couldn’t carry me over& Jesus was standing across the other side staring at me sadly. I had a friend at this time a male friend who was loving and kind&understanding I think I was starting to have feelings for him just a feeling of being understood. I wish now that I had realised the one who understood me the most was my lord and saviour who could see right inside my heart and soul. 
So I went back to my partner and things were great for a while but everytime I tried to tell him who Jesus was he flipped out and so I thought this guy is wasting my time and I will not have Muslim children or children influenced in any way by Islam. He insisted they would eat halal meat I said that gives them a strong identity as a Muslim its not going to happen. So one day he beat me so bad that I couldn’t open my mouth I cried out to Jesus and again he fell to the floor weeping. This was not his style he usually was unashamed and unapologetic but I guess I knew the demons were within him. That day he was looking up and down the stairs holding me over them like he was trying to assess how damaging the drop would be. So I opened my bible and was told to leave. So I did. I told him when we argue I have nowhere to go so I got myself this little caravan a hundred miles away or so and he was very cooperative he said he just didn’t want me to leave him&that when these things happened it’s like a darkness came over him like he wasn’t in control. I understood that I was preaching jeuss message and the demons within him did not like it because only in that last two years was he ever physically violent towards me. When we got to the caravan I’ll never forget the look on his face it was appreciative like ‘this is a new start’ he left me a beautiful note the next morning saying he loved me and would see me soon. I read in my bible ‘stay close to god’
I did not.
I spent the first week in severe physical pain and being sick I did not call out to Jesus to help me it’s like I forgot him. My reasons for leaving became more about the abuse than the religious differences. I became a bitch. Within three weeks I started a relationship with my male friend. I started chain smoking I didn’t ever leave that caravan and I moped and let this guy pander to me and love me and do things for me. I told everyone what my ex had done to me. Meanwhile my ex started going to church and opening the bible at random and recording his feelings. He also started going to counselling. I defamed him to everyone we knew I was so tired of being let down by him. I became his enemy. I used to work with him&I took a redundancy payout from him rather than getting off my lazy arse and getting a job or doing some good for others. I became the devil. I was lazy, unkind, ungodly, bitter, tormented day and night by visions and dreams – fear is of the devil there is no place for it in the kingdom of heaven. His family even called me to apologise and tell me he could not live without me. This was my chance to be a Christian. Did I take it? No I was hostile. My ex started to really get into church and feel loved by Jesus I should have held his hand and stood by him. Did I go to church? No. I was reminded of this one day in the caravan as the bells rang for 45 minutes solid. I thought ‘I haven’t been to church for a while’ then they stopped ringing. Meanwhile for the first time ever I felt empowered and like I didn’t care
Several times my ex came down sobbing wanting to talk to me wanting to share gods word, leaving extracts from services he’d attended outside my door. I didn’t read any of them. He even followed me around town the one time while I pretended he wasn’t there. My physical ailments continued I had the oddest medical problems going. Oh how often I defied god in the desert. One morning I woke up sweating I had a dream that I was pregnant&god said ‘call him maher shalal hash baz’ my name, halal and my exs name. then in the dream a huge tall evil man said ‘when you are deliriously happy I will strike you down’ when I awoke I looked this name up online and low and behold in Isaiah there is a prophetic child born to a prophetess called maher Shalal hash baz which ironically means speed to the spoil quick to the plunder.
I went on holiday with my new man to a place renowned for lose living. The day before my whole face broke out in welts and swelled up but nothing was going to stop me
My ex had found two shells on a beach and made us pendants out of them. The one night we were sitting at the table me&the new man and the lighter dropped onto the cloth&burnt a hole into it exactly the same shape as my exs pendant. I have photos. It was a punch to the stomach and I nearly went home but went upstairs and defied god once again. My ex had also bought me a beautiful cross which I’d hung up in the caravan. Around this time I was just getting warning after warning from the bible ‘I will give your men to other women’ look at you fulfil your lust as my holy symbol hangs above you’ ‘ you will be shamed in your nakedness’ etc. So I went to church with my dad. The night before I was so scared of hell Id really started to think about it and the sermon was entitled ‘hell’ the night before I’d held my cross and said Jesus Christ I don’t know what’s happening but please just take me to heaven now.
After the service I cried&my dad invited my ex back to our house to talk and for some reason I had this need to confess all my sins to my whole family. My dad got angry with me&told me to go home so my ex drove me back. I took his cross from the draw& put it on and wow I felt such a genuine compassion and deep lobe for him&then these words came out of my mouth ‘oh no youve lost your eternal salvation’ so I tore it off and heard ‘oh you are evil. This was the second time I’d heard gods voice the first time was I made my ex go to a medical appointment with me and I heard ‘be kind to baz’ and my disc in face which needed an operation slipped down& I started to weep.
I got really flustered with the cross incident I told him to go home. That night the cross whispered and in the morning it was not in my hand it was up on the side. 
Every time my ex and I had hung out which I limited to three or four occasions that year it was like some kind of weirdness was going on. For example a guy dressed as he devil in the middle of the road made me thing ‘the devils trying to get in-between baz and i’ or leaflets on the surgery that had a picture of the devil on next to another leaflet called ‘the forgotten man’ and going to see another caravan and me with my Irish small town totally unusual surname being closely related to the woman. Anyway I ignored all that and started having visors of hell and bad dreams where I was walk g trough hell I could smell it and see all the torture methods used and saw myself burning and screaming  so for some stupid reason I stopped sleeping. I prayed loads but it just continued. So my new man took me to the hospital and when I got there three people sat in front of me. I recognised Jesus immediately. the name ‘mary godsonrose’ was called out. I heard gods voice ‘come on hanniel please let us help you- I will help you write your book’ ( something I knew I should have been doing all year) about Islam and personality disorders and domestic abuse all being from Satan. I didnt even know what hanniel meant at that time. I stared and I felt an amazing feeling of healing all over my neck it was beautiful but all that went through my head was ‘ I want to throw her into the pit of hell’ when they left I ran after them shouting ‘jesus’ the man with the hooked nose and olive skin from the year before was there he looked deeply sad and troubled. I know he was god. I went into a doctor who asked me ‘crisis call?’ I said ‘I know what you’re doing just be quiet’ he looked quite bemused. Then I started to mistrust everyone like it was a big conspiracy and they were all in on it and knew I’d seen god. Couldn’t be further from the truth. They gave me sleeping tablets but that night I was a mess. My parents came down the next day and before they arrived I threw away all my writing and hid in a bush shaking. 
I ended up in a mental health ward and the first night could not sleep because of the pulsing feeling of evil. Upon arriving a woman shouted at me ‘hi Jesus hi Jesus- you are disgusting you could have helped me and I’ve been like this all my life I don’t have a problem with (new partners name) but I have a problem with you. This continued for weeks me confused and demons outwardly attacking me and knowing my entire life story until one day I saw his guy and he sat in the foyer I recognised him as the devil and I rebuked him. 5 minutes later one f the women ‘gloria’ shouted at me ‘you ignore me to talk to the man upstairs’ and she spat on me. Another patient threw a cup of tea in my face and said ‘you never stop trying do you’ I was praying like crazy at this point it was completely insane the whole thing even all the patients were named after people I loved and the nurses were called fortunate and patience. I prayed dear god deliver me and 5 minutes later a team turned up to take me home but guess what? I didn’t go because they ‘looked demonic’ three days later I ha a tribunal and the day before I wad compelled to speak to the evil one. He even asked ‘now or next week’ that night I sweated profusely. God had tried to warn me that morning with a severe nosebleed and vivid dreams but i still did it. I didn’t get out at my tribunal and this demonic doctor who ‘disappeared’ after my case was grinning the whole way through. Before I spoke to him another women had turned up signed herself ce took me into a room and said ‘this is getting very serious now marie’ I had her out of there in minutes. She is untraceable and I know god sent her. 
8 years ago I had a dream. In the dream I was in a big White hospital telling everyone the devil was in me and I had lost my soul they were all laughing at me. In the dream I got my leg caught up in a black cable with a pink green and blue wire coming out of it. In the dream demons were laughing saying you are going to hell but you better pray you go to hell. In the dream a girl i went to school with was a doctor. I’ve looked her up and she’s a psychiatrist.One week after I spoke to the devil this canle incident happened. When I saw that cable outside on my walk I felt sick and so scared.
I am at home now but every day I wait for something bad or evil to happen. My naturally joyful and loving personality is gone I have let down my god just by being human and confused but having had such direct contact from him I should have been putting on the armour of god and living a sinless life. The devil even had me convinced the world had turned islamic at one point! This was when the first social worker turned up. I asked her ‘do you know what this is about’ she said yes- jesus needs you I said ‘will my family get hurt if I don’t come with you’ she said ‘yes’ I said idont want to go with you she looked horrified and left. I tried to run after her and had all these visions that I’d handed the covenant over to Islam. 
Anyway- I’m going to hell and at any time the devil could take me over and do someging utterly evil to someone I love.
There is a god there is a Jesus there is a Mary- I have seen them. There will be a judgement day and those called to his service should throw themselves at his feet- that is everyone we are all called in one way or another. Now I havne doctors telling me I am ‘getting better and should be happy ad embrace life’ there was Noone happier than me before all this now I am terrified.
I’ve tried to include most things but ita such a long and complicated story.
After seeing Jesus being in the car thinking ‘you are hanniel you are meant to heal the sick and cast out demons’
Breaking my neck feeling hands twisting and squeezing
The man in black pacing and the mask at my window
Zechariah being open on my bedside when I woke up
The chapel in hospital crying out to god to protect me and last page of revelations being open where it says ‘if anyone takes anything away from this book’
The night of terror with everyone shaking. All the alarms went off- demon put thought in my head it is the end of the world it’s the last day I walk past one of the women and she was nodding in affirmation. I went into main area and every patient was sitting upright eyes closed shaking back and forth I ran to my room and hid under the covers
The fact I’d seen several of those people befoe in my dreams as a child and felt they all knew I’d see. Jesus and were ‘in on it’ a lot of the time because of their facial expressions things theydaid and the way they said it
Feeling of pure evil all around from the very fort day at the hospital I couldn’t even sleep like a pulsing feeling of energy coming into my room
The feeling people knew I’d seen god or was the Antichrist. Comments from demonics such as ‘favourite colour red eh? Or comments on my personal life. First day there had a purple gown and red coat felt evil like the Antichrist wore gown out for a cigarette took gown off and one of the patients said ‘oh at least she feels guilty’ in the bible the Antichrist has a purple gown
The conversations with demonics so many of them 24/7 stayed in my room mainly
The feelin of demons inside me
Hearing the devils voice
Fear of death before I went into hospital and fear that I’d shut my eyes and be in hell
The demonic possession red coat purple gown incident 
In the hospital and the people feeling they were waiting for my soul and that they all knew
The Muslim child sticking her Tongue out after Jesus left
Nosebleed and dreams ‘oly’ talking to the devil
Fears my family would get hurt if they came to visit me visions of them getting shot when they left because of the world being islamic
Visions of hell
How I’d been living my life 
The demon possession in the caravan me getting up smoking a whole pouch of tobacco with no memory and finding my loving cat scared of me my cross tangled beyond repair things broken messy and dirty. Foaming at the mouth having no memory of time or what happened in those few days
The priest telling me to read johns gospel and me wanting him to leave
Baz and how hard he tried all year to reach me
My wish to be with him but something stopped me
The ambulance turning up was cartoon like and false I was angry with my family for not listening to me
Thinking repeatedly of gods face and how grief-stricken he looked at the hospital that day. Thinking of Jesus leaning forward pleading loving happy face beckoning and that voice saying ‘I want to throw her into the pit’ staring defiantly feeling healing. That night sure I was now definitely doomed to hell.
I have committed the unforgivable sin haven’t I?

Hello Marie. No, you have NOT committee the unpardonable sin. Here is why I can say that with confidence. Marie, I read your story and wow, you have been thru a lot. Please know that there are more people who have committed far worse things than you and have still been saved. King David committed murder by conspiracy and adultery too yet God said he was a man after His own heart.

The Apostle Paul, while named Paul was responsible for many murders of Christians! Imagine that but God saved him.

Moses even murdered someone in Egypt yet God saved him too. Jesus said in John 11:25-26 that, “And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” Let me ask you, can God lie? No! You can believe Jesus. Don’t believe your feelings. You can be forgiven if you repent of your sins, confess them to God and trust in Christ right at this very moment.

I want you to read this article at this link to see why you are forgiven if you confess your sins to God He promises to forgive and cleanse you (1 John 1:9) and that Jesus became sin for you, He who know no sin so that we would have the righteousness of Christ imputed to us (2 Cor 5:21).

The only unforgivable or unpardonable sin is refusing to repent and trust in Christ. What sin would not the cross of Christ cover? ALL of them (John 3:16-17). Let me know if you now know that you can be or just now have bowed down and repented, asked for forgiveness, and put your trust in Christ. If so, you can KNOW you will be saved. Jesus said in John 6:37 “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.” And John 6:39 “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.” and in John 10:28-29 “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” Now, you must read this article below and forgive yourself.

Hi Mr. Wellman, I know you must be very busy but I could really use some advice. So if you get a moment and you think you can help I would really appreciate it.
see back in August of 2013 I got really angry at God because I didn’t think God was using me and I couldn’t understand way, I prayed all the time, I read my bible every day and I got involved in a lot of church ministries I even went on two different mission trips, yet I never seen God using me. I got so upset at God that I gave up on Him. If God didn’t want to use me (or if He just didn’t want me) then why should I even be a Christian? Why should I spend my life severing at the church and trying to be a better Christ follower if God doesn’t even want me to? Why should I even believe god is real? A week later I calmed down and I prayed that God would forgive me or at least I tried but every word felt like a lie almost. Did I commit the unforgivable sin? This question made me wonder, if I already committed the unforgivable sin then how could I be forgiven? I ask this because ever since I said I wasn’t going to worship God I keep falling farther and farther away from God despite asking for forgiveness. I find myself question if god really loves every one. And then shortly after question God’s love I start wording if God is even real. And you know what sometimes I kind of hope He isn’t, because if God is real then I believe I am going to hell. I know this might sound pathetic but even if I didn’t commit the unforgivable sin I am afraid that Satan will just keep using that to stop me for doing Gods works. I keep trying to move on but I am caught in the storm and I can’t see God any more. At times I feel like I am the only one around that doesn’t have God in their life, and during those times I think hell would be more comforting. At least in hell there is No God present any were so I won’t have to talk about how God is might to save and how He loves everyone when I am thinking the exact opposite. Honestly, Do you think that I can find my away back to God? Do I just need to refocus on Christ and forget about my doubts and move on? Or am I wasting my time because God isn’t and will never be in my life.

Hello Chris. I am touched by your difficult journey. Please, let me point you to 1 John 1:9 which says that if we confess our sins (which you are doing) to God He will cleanse us and forgive us of all our sins and so you can know for sure that He will forgive you Christopher. All of us are no better than you…we ALL need forgiveness for we ALL sin (1 John 1:8. 10). Please trust in Christ to save you and to forgive you. All you need do is to repent (which it appears you want to), confess your sins (which appears that you also want to do) and He will forgive ALL your sins. You can not remain pure on your own but in the power of Christ, you can do all things, including being made righteous in His sight by the blood of the Lamb. read Romans chapter 8 and see how doubts and fears cannot compare with what God says in His Word. Human feelings are too unreliable but God’s Word is certain. Read John chapter 6 and 10 and learn to forgive yourself. Jonah was restored, David was restored, and so can you too. God never gives up on us even though we think He will or that His love fails…it doesn’t. Don’t depend on your feelings but on the Word of God. stay in the Bible and read it first thing in the morning right after prayer and before you eat breakfast and end the day the same way. I would also talk to your pastor about this right away.

Thank you so much Chris. At times, I myself fall deep into depression and feelings of worthlessness. Presently going thru a terrible storm right now but God is nearer to us in the storms and in our pain than in times of good and He is near the broken hearted and those crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18) but I will be glad to pray for you even more and please do keep in touch my friend. Your comment gave me encouragement because at times, I tell the congregation, that I am still a train wreck and God cannot fix what is first not broken. A bone that is broken grows 3 times as strong when it heals. Make sense friend?

For me I Really Hate This sin Because OF Fear of never Being Saved But I Believe that This sin is a Rejection Of Jesus Christ Deity Knowing Full well that He is The Messiah But Harding Your Heart and PERMANENTLY Reject Him With Full knowledge OF The Truth By Slandering Him AND saying that he has a unclean spirit because they reject him in there heart that why Jesus say a Tree is recognized by there Fruit

Jesus says that we will know them by their fruit and by their love for one another and you sound like you have a love for God (proof #1) and that you want to be free of sin (proof #2) and that you are working out your own salvation with fear and trembling (poof #3; Philippians 2:12). Read John chapter 10 and 11 tonight Anthony. Don’t do anything else until you do this (well, bathroom break is okay…LOL). :-)

And, if a person is worried about sin, this shows the evidence of the Holy Spirit in you and you cannot lose Him once He comes to you….as you are sealed for all eternity (read Ephesians 1, 2 chapters)…proof #4!

Hi brother Jack! I have never blasphemed the Spirit to my knowledge, but nonetheless I am still scared. I have an easier time believing sometimes that Christians can be forgiven of heinous sins. When I read some New Testament scriptures like those found in Hebrews, and so on, it seems to suggest that certain sins God won’t forgive (though most likely that probably isn’t true). My question is this- if a Christian was to say for example, commit a serious sin like turn from the faith and become a Satanist, or teach heretical teachings while knowing what he or she is doing, but then one day genuinely felt convicted and repented, would the Lord still forgive them? I know some will say, “Well, they were never really a true Christian to begin with”, or “A true Christian would never do that”, but while I understand the reasoning behind those answers, I am not really looking for a theological answer so to say, but rather a straightforward answer. I say this because I am scared of the unpardonable sin, and sometimes I feel too sinful to even think my heart is in the right place. I feel very emotionally numb and numb to spiritual things alot of times, also I feel narcissistic and have deliberately sinned knowing the truth, but yet deep inside I really do want God’s forgiveness and I want Him to change me and make me new and help me to care. I am really stressed out to the point where my focus is off and it is hard to sleep at night. Do you have any Biblical insight on this? Also, is there any hope for me? I really want to change. Thank you brother!

Hello Michael and please forgive me for responding to the very, very important post and question of yours and to David in Europe, thanks brother. I am sorry I didn’t have a chance to respond sooner sir. Let me say that anyone who is concerned or worried about committing an unpardonable sin has not done it because as long as there is godly sorrow and repentance, there is always hope. Jesus was speaking to the religious leaders sir, and they had no excuse. They knew the Scriptures, they had seen His miracles and they had to know that the Devil could not be doing good or healing the sick or making the blind see. How many of your sins were ahead of you and of me at the cross? All of them! There is no sin which God will not forgive except that whereby a person rejects Jesus Christ as Savior. Please read Roman’s chapter 8 to see why I say that….and these verses, John 6:37, 39, John 10:28-29 are such an aid to know that Jesus will not cast any away or turn away from any that come to Him. I am going to suggest you read this on how to forgive yourself because if God has forgiven you, then you must let it go since your standard of forgiveness can’t be higher than God’s. Please read: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-forgive-yourself-a-christian-commentary/ If I hope this gives you peace of mind Michael.

Also, say if a Christian said evil things about the Holy Spirit, but repented after would they still be forgiven? Is the unpardonable sin really a sin of continued unbelief? I hope that is the case so I can repent, because I am a sinner in need of God’s grace. Sorry to ramble. Thank you for taking the time to read this my family in Christ!

Hi Michael Don’t worry About Unforgivable sin No True Christian Will Ever Say Bad Thing About The Holy Spirit You Could have Pop up in Your head But If You Didn’t Mean it you got nothing Worry God Know The Heart Those Who blasphemed The Spirit Are Hardened In The Heart They Went past The Point Of No return Where They Will Never repent Of This sin you want to repent if you could repent you could have forgiveness God will never cast you out so Don’t Worry about it

Dear Sir, I am from Nepal. Actually, we have a many type of churches and christian communities over here. One day, one of our church member and me were having a chat, his view was that some other christian communities are not doing the things in a right way as bible teaches. He pointed out few things of their. My response to this was, everybody have their weaknesses and the small difference doesn’t matter much. I said him ” we too have weaknesses in our protestant christian communities” as well. This is only because there are some few people who do things just to show off the people. Such people might not be in a presence of GOD but they show just to impress people. These few people do dramas, shout etc but do not mend their ways in real life. So, I said him that the person who do not have a fear of god and who do not mend the ways knowingly may not have the presence of HOLY SPIRIT though they show they have and we believe they have. He in reply said that ” I should not say this at all because Lord said the unpardonable sin is to blasphemy holy spirit”. I know this verse as well, I have read it, I am a GOD fearing person. I never meant to blasphemy holy spirit because I know HE is the clean spirit and is the spirit of GOD, so I can never say bad words about the Holy spirit neither I mean to say it. But, after hearing from him, I was really very afraid and worried. I know that I sometimes debate a lot with people and speak-up openly If they say something which I could not accept. The same was the case here where I pointed out to him that we must also look at ourselves because we also may have some members & people who do those things. I realize that I should stop debating with people because I am not sure and I am worried, If I have hurt my LORD with that sentence I spoke. I repented to GOD that I will never say any hard words to anyone. I would be very very grateful, If you could kindly suggest me If this is really not pardonable ? I am worried, GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

Hello Paul and thank you for your question. Anyone that is worried about committing the unpardonable or unforgiveable sin has surely not committed it. The fact that you or anyone else is worried over committing it shows me that you have not committed it. The only unforgiveable sin is to reject Jesus Christ as Savior. That is the only sin that cannot be forgiven. Every single one of our sins was still yet ahead of us when Christ died on the cross and His blood is enough to cover every sin that humans will ever commit if they have repented and trusted in Him. Not trusting in Jesus Christ is the only sin that God cannot forgive because they are not placing their trust in the only name that they can be saved (Acts 4:12).

The unforgivable sin is not letting the Holy Spirit speak through you…this can only happen when you are offered up to the antichrist. The Holy Spirit will preach to the nations through our body…just like on Pentecost.

Will God forgive us if cannot forgive those that have hurt us?

Jack Wellman August 11, 2014 at 7:56 am

Thank you Mr. Patrick for your question. God will forgive anyone who repents, confesses their sins, and trusts in Christ. That includes you but if you are not forgiving others, then you won’t be forgiven because Jesus said in Matt 6:15 ” if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Why won’t you forgive them when God forgave us of so much more than we could ever forgive others. If you don’t then how do you know if God will forgive you because a person that doesn’t forgive may have never been forgiven in the first place….or have been saved.

God will forgive us during the age of grace. We will be in the tribulation when we are delivered up to the antichrist. The fact that we will be delivered up to have the Holy Spirit speak to us proves that there is no rapture.

My question is “what about the Holy Spirit” This means that
when I responded to my then pastor “keep short accounts with
sin”. That”s what he said, back in 1985, I remember being perplexed by that as it isn’t biblical so I wondered what he
meant. I’ve now been a christian about 27 years and have
always experienced the joy of the Holy Spirit, and his great peace.
Then I began to wonder again about this odd comment made
so many years ago. It wasn’t in the bible, so I Thought it was safe
Keep short accounts with sin….. I wonder what would happen if I didn’t keep such short accounts. (just a few days), I wouldn’t dare go any longer (I Really thought that).
After three days, then the morning of the forth day, I sensed the loss of the Spirit!
Suddenly there was the loss of the peace, loss of the joy,
everything changed from HD, to analog and I didn’t feel like
He was listening to me.
Jack, I’m scared and need a mentor or something.
Anxiously awaiting your response,
Michael

Hello Mr. Sirianni and thank you sir for your question. Have you spoken with your pastor over this issue? I believe you are worrying over something that is not a real problem. The only reason that this is mentioned, “keep short accounts” is that we should confess our sins daily. That doesn’t mean that if we don’t, we are cut off from God permanently. I would talk with your pastor about this. Have you spoken with him? do you have a church home? Many churches have older CHristian men who can mentor you. How much time do you spend in the Bible? Do you read it every day? How much time do you spend in the Bible? How much time do you spend in prayer? You cannot lose the SPirit which is the Holy Spirit, Who is God. Read Eph 1 which talks about your being sealed by the Spirit. Also read John chapter 6 and 10 to get some reassurance. Don’t depend on your feelings or that you feel a loss of joy…that could be the Enemy, Satan. Don’t trust human feelings. They are completely unreliable. Trust God’s Word. Also read Romans 8 for more reassurance. Talk to your pastor today and if you don’t have one, find a church home immediately. Satan roams about like a lion seeking whom he can devour but there is protection in the Great Shepherd’s sheepfold, the church.
