Why is the sin against the Holyspirit not forgiven according to Matt 12:31?


And what is exactly a sin against the Holy spirit which cannot be forgiven?

    Because sinning against the the holy spirit which is God's active force, by which he uses to accomplish His will, is denying the operation of it in a person's life, just as the wicked religious leaders of Jesus day did.

    Hi barrier, I haven't read where scholars struggle over it. People who don't study the Word are not able to put it in context. The passage should not be lifted out and addressed. The Scriptures before provide the setting. out of space :-(

    It's a dangerous thing to concoct doctrine apart from Scripture. The work of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus. Being foolhardy is not unforgivable. Jesus is not merely a historic figure, rejecting the Holy Spirit's reveal of this is unforgivable.

    Speaking in languages unknown to the believer was a gift of the Spirit in the early Church. After the canon of Scripture was completed, the Church no longer needed this sign gift. What people speak today is gibberish, not a known language. I'm sorry.
