Probably no other teaching of Scripture causes more angst for believers than the unpardonable sin. There are two questions that immediately surface. First, “What is the unpardonable sin?” Second, “Have I committed it?” What is it? A close look at the text reveals what is involved in committing the unpardonable sin. An outrageous charge was leveled against Jesus by the scribes from Jerusalem. Take careful note that these scribes had already decided in their heart of hearts not to believe in Jesus, and they were going to do anything they could to discredit Him and silence His ministry and popularity. They were hardened unbelievers who violently opposed Jesus and the gospel He preached. So what was their charge? They claimed that Jesus was performing miracles through the power of Satan. Jesus replied that not only was their charge ridiculous and absurd, it was damnable! They had crossed the line of which there was no forgiveness, no return. So what is this line? The unpardonable sin is to attribute the saving work of the Holy Spirit as the work of Satan. Have you committed it? Not if you are a believer in Jesus Christ! Remember, the ones who committed this sin were hardened, unbelievers who opposed the gospel. Followers of Christ are in no danger whatsoever of committing this sin. Now, if you are not a believer, it is very possible that if your heart continues to grow hard against the gospel, you will so deny and refuse the gospel that you will twist the gospel into an anti-gospel. The answer for you is to flee to Jesus and be saved now!
