What Is The Unpardonable Sin

Opinions? Blasphemy against Holy Spirit, is the unpardonable sin, It's in three Books, Matthew 12:31, Mark 3:20, Luke 12:10. "Wherefore, I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men; but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven men" (Matthew 12:31).

There is no sin that can place you beyond the blood of Jesus. To teach so is to place impotence on the doctrine of atonement. It is not in understanding the sin but in what historical context (Mosaic area) Jesus is addressing the type of punishment of the sin. (Number 15:30-31) Under the Law there was no forgiveness or pardon for blaspheming God. People where to be killed or cut off if they commit this sin. This does not mean there soul could not be forgiven.

You blasphem the Holy Spirit and you blasphem God ... as refusing the gift of the Holy Spirit. I want to be so full of the Spirit that I feel like I'm going to pop. I wouldn't give up this gift for anything or anyone!

, some people will try to point to some verses, but what those verses really refer to is a continual hardening of the heart against God, so there is nothing to worry about for those who repent and come to God's grace.

You can't be forgiven if you commit suicide.

You will recieve many answers that are based on the wisdom of man but scripture is very specific:
Matt 12:31,32 Luke 12:10 Mark 3:28-30: Jesus meant what He said. There is an "unpardonable sin" and it is giving credit to Satan for the work of the Holy Spirit. In this case the Pharisees, who KNEW that Jesus was who He claimed to be, did not want to surrender their place of authority and have people submit to Jesus instead.

So, they deliberately and knowingly attributed the work of the Holy Spirit to Satan in an attempt to discredit Jesus. This was not a casual or accidental "sin" but a deliberate rejection of the Messiah.

, there is no unforgivable sin except the continual hardening of the heart against God.

This would be any sin that one would cherish so much that one would be willing to trade it for one's salvation thinking it to be better than salvaton. Thus it would be any sin which one would not want to give up!

2 possible answers.
1/In the context, it is saying that the works of God are the works of Satan. The Pharisees had just accused Jesus of casting out demons becuase he is Beelzebub.
2/ Rejecting salvation. In this one, you are damned because you have said no to salvation.
There is a case for the two to be mutually inclusive.
