Matthew 12: 31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. why can't we be forgive when we blasphemy against the Holy Ghost.
John 16-13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
So if the Holy Spirit is not there to guide you into all truth, you just stay in your sins. therefore, is important, because without the Holy Spirit you can not be save.
It basically abusing yourself as the Holy ghost or god is ones true self.
Only when man wants nothing is when he gets to go back home but any desire good or bad will make man materialize.
then there are repercussions for insulting god or the Holy Spirit, god teaches man very often with pain..
Then even this sin is forgiven with time.
Bible does not. Creator does.
Bible is human history and interpretation of Creator, not Creator interpretation of Himself or mankind.
Bible is merely sound bites of a living truth 99% of people refuse to seek out from a pure heart -or desire to twist fitting their own ba`al belief system, attempting to satisfy a burning consciousness -the knowledge of good v evil. The Word is not in sound bites but living in Spirit.
God's Holy Spirit testifies of the Son of God, Jesus, and is the Spirit Of Truth revealing one mystery after another. If one do not desire the Holy Spirit, because he is consumed by evil can not be saved because he shall never accept Jesus who have God's Holy Spirit in Him.
Leaving a teabag in the cup whilst about to drink the tea...He cannot forgive anyone who does this....
Check the context of Mt 12. Jesus had just done a miracle and in response the Pharisees said that Jesus was able to do the miracle by the power of Beelzebub, the devil. The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is to assign the power of the Holy Spirit working to satan. Jesus was able to do miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Essentially, the Pharisees were saying that it was Satan doing the miracle. To do so is to blaspheme God. The "sin" then is unforgiveable, because anyone who denies the power of God, claiming that it is satan, is not and cannot be one of God's. And without the grace of God, there can be no forgiveness of sin.
Denial of the spirit is definitely the big one, but it takes forms that you wouldn't think. when an evangelist comes to your door, he first has made a judgement about you. You need this. But what if he has misjudged you, and you are already in the Hand, he wants you to hear his word nonetheless. Does he doubt the power that you say already is working in you? Does he really think that the Holy Spirit even needs his help? I think that sending the evangelists out to spread the word was God's way of getting the judgemental people to leave his neighborhood.
If its a sin god will not forgive...
A sin is something which no one must practice
Its a sin cause god hates it to be done by a mankind
NO not believing in God is the only sin which can not be forgiven. Yes it can be corrected but not to be forgiven.
Paul did not believe in God and he was save. why, because the Holy Spirit directed him back to God. Now if there is no Holy Spirit to lead you back to God then are lost.
I was an atheist who mocked the prophets and religions when I was young and the I gained enlightenment or salvation(will come when I leave my bod).
Even not believing in god is forgiven .
Have you heard of the dacoit Valmiki, he didnt believe in God and on Naradas (the saints) interference he became a poet saint and wrote the Holy Ramayana.
"There is no such thing as sin except for the one that is 'like' adultery."
A few years ago I was reading the Bible and I kept wondering, why doesn't this "adultery" seem to make sense in context. So I decided, even though I already 'knew' what adultery meant, if there was something I was missing.
So I am reading and I find adulatory just before adultery. Without noticing, I am reading its definition which is "excessive adoration or excessive praise."
I think, wow! Excessiveness makes sense. Extreme adoration, extreme praise, everything extreme...
Still I realized I read the wrong thing but I was amazing at how a little slip could make the whole thing make more sense. Years later I am reading a quote from Jesus that is the one I wrote above.
Giving it some thought, now...What is like adultery? Adulatory is like adultery! There is no sin but excessive praise. And what is the problem today?
Everything in excess.

Cruising these forums it's easy to see that there are a few atheists who spend their time protesting against God's existence and accusing the brethren in general.But why are they afraid to speak against the Holy Spirit?Could it be these verses of scripture?;Matthew 12:30-37"He who is not with...
