The One Sin That God Can Never Forgive No Matter Who You Are

Some asked what is sometimes referred to as the Unforgivable Sin.

In Mark 3:28-29 Christ listed this unforgivable sin, where it is defined as blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. It was about denying God's authority and might. Mark states that Christ replied to His detractors' accusation, saying, "He has an unclean spirit" (Mark 3:30). They thought His power was from Satan, not Heaven. While these accusers recognized that the Son of God was Jesus, they suspected Him of being a fraud. Christ warned them they might commit a sin for which there was no redemption.

What is the fate of someone who isn't repenting of this sin? At the end of the era, the unrepentant shall perish in a lake of fire (Matthew 10:28; Revelation 20:14-15). It's not that one sin is more terrible than another, but that any sin we don't repent of will lead to death. Hebrews 6:4-6 and Hebrews 10:26-27 both also reference this sin, advising us not to "fallen away" or "willfully lie." How does one know if he has reached the point of no return?

So long as one wants to repent, to spiritually get back his or her life, God will always forgive. Sadly, a state of not caring and not finding redemption will come about.There will be no redemption if there's no repentance. This is when there is a person in danger of the unforgivable sin. A person can come to that place either by simply drifting away or by in angry hostility turning sharply away from God.

At any point, if the sinner desires salvation and truly repents, God can and will forgive the sin of abandoning Him. God inspired John to write, "When we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, that he may forgive us our sins, and purify us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9). God will extend mercy to those who sincerely repent and change — regardless of their sin. The words of Christ are sobering, coupled with the warnings in Hebrews. Nonetheless, we will hold fast to hope that when we turn to Him, God will give us repentance.

Let's expand the scope for a similar thing to consider. Besides the unforgivable sin, many sincere religious people do not realize that sin is the transgression of the law of God (1 John 3:4). Most churches teach and practice a theology very different from the way of life followed by the early Church of God in the New Testament.
