In a religious context, sin is a transgression against divine law. Each culture has its own interpretation of what it means to commit a sin. While sins are generally actions, any thought, word, or act considered immoral, selfish, shameful, harmful, or alienating might be termed "sinful".
The Bible has said in many scriptures in the Bible, that if one ask for the forgiveness of sins, he or she shall be forgiven, be cleansed and purified once again.
1 John 1:9
But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
But there is a kind of sin Jesus talked about in the Bible that will never be forgiven upon doing it. ( The unforgivable Sin).
“Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.
“So I tell you, every sin and blasphemy can be forgiven—except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will never be forgiven.
The above scripture talks about the unforgivable sin (which is blaphemy against the Holy spirit), and Jesus said that it can never be forgiven. Jesus said this because of what the scribes and the Pharasees were saying after He made a miracles. They were saying that Jesus did the miracle by the help of an evil hidden powers He had, meaning that Jesus had an evil source of his Powers and strength for making miracles. And Jesus cautioned them that they are comiting a sin that can never be forgiven, because His source of strength and power, were from the Holy spirit, everything He has ever done is by the power of the Holy spirit, so why then do they say He's doing this miracle by the help if an evil powers.
Though there is a Grace and Mercies of God available for us, but becareful of what you say with your mouth as well as how you describe and measure certain things.
Blasphemy is an insult that shows contempt, disrespect, or lack of reverence concerning a deity, a sacred object, or something considered inviolable. So blaspheming the Holy Spirit is actually by speaking I'll of the work of the Holy Spirit.
Many times we see people speaking in tounges and we are likel "what are these people saying or doing, this is total madness". We see pastors or men of God performing heavy miracles and we say this is not from God, it's fake. Have you ever asked yourself this question, what if It's real and truly from the Holy Spirit???
If I were you, I will never talk of these things, because you might not know wether it's from the Holy spirit or not. The Bible says that at the end time, faults prophets will come, indeed we are in the end times, and fake pastors are around, the same way true pastors are also around, so for you not to offend the Holy spirit, just keep quite and observe, don't speak I'll of the things you don't understand.
So what if I have already committed the unforgivable sin?
I cannot end this Article without answering this particular question.
You see, Jesus actually told them that they cannot be forgiven because they had a hard heart, and they were not willing to change from their wrong doings. But in our days, the Bible says that if a man come to Christ, he is a new creation, all things are past the older things are new, whom the son sets free is truly free indeed.
This means that Jesus being so merciful shall forgive you because you had less or no knowledge about these things, but as you've known now if you go on to blapheme the Holy spirit then it's your own cup of tea. Because of you know what is good and you don't do it, the Bible says is a sin for you.
So watch your mouth, and the words you say, don't criticize other people, just follow you own belief and keep up with what ever you are doing, and it shall be well with you.
God bless you for your time spent here.
