  • This expression is used at the Bible account found at Matthew 12:24-32. For his miraculous cures, Jesus gave the credit to the One really responsible for them. So, to those who accused him of being in league with Satan the Devil, whom they called “Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons,” Jesus said: “It is by means of God’s spirit that I expel the demons.” Consequently, he warned the opposers that “the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven. . . . “whoever speaks against the holy spirit, it will not be forgiven him, no, not in this system of things nor in that to come.” The opposers had committed that unforgivable sin by maliciously attributing to the Devil what was plainly a miraculous operation of God’s holy spirit.
  • Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is exactly what it says: blasphemy. Blasphemy is a disrespect, irreverence or maliciousness. Since the Holy Spirit, according to the words of Jesus, is sent to speak of Christ and man's need for salvation, this blasphemy translates into a disbelief, mockery or antagonism toward that message. The only unforgivable sin is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit which is not believing His message about Jesus Christ. A person is not sent to hell because he is a murderer. He is sent to hell because he doesn't believe in Christ. A person is not sent to hell because he is a rapist. He is sent to hell because he doesn't believe in Christ. A person is not sent to hell because he is a thief. He is sent to hell because he doesn't believe in Christ. Conversely, A person does not go to heaven because he is a good person. He goes to heaven because he believes in Christ. A person does not go to heaven because he goes to church. He goes to heaven because he believes in Christ. A person does not go to heaven because he gives his money and time to good causes. He goes to heaven because he believes in Christ.
  • In Matthew chapter 12 Jesus cast out a demon. (In Mark, it is written that they said He was possessed by Beelzebul [Satan]). The Pharisees said that Jesus was the ruler of demons that's why He could cast them out. The pharisees knew all of the prophecies. Signs that He was the Son of Man were clear, yet they refused to recognize that. What Jesus did was a miracle but the pharisees claimed otherwise. They deliberately rejected Jesus even though the evidence was before them and they knew it. He was the Son of God and they rejected that. http://www.raptureready.com/faq/faq307.html
  • It means to deny that the Holy spirit exists. You've got me pal. Every religion has it's own version of an "unforgivable" sin. God is all powerful. The Holy Spirit is an aspect of God. I can harden my heart against the Holy Spirit. Therefore I'm more powerful than God.

  • denial of WHO and WHAT the Holy Spirit is...its God and HIS POWER ...HIS POWER of 'help' and 'comfort'.... deny the Holy Spirit is denying GOD....it is very vital to know the correct identity of the Almighty...God , the Holy Spirit and Christ are ONE>>> you can deny Christ and still COME HOME...be forgiven...but DENYING GOD is unforgiveable and you can never COME HOME....amen
  • Generally one needs a name to blast pheme inorder for it to work. For instance saying, God Damn, is not blast famous because God is not a devine name. There isnt a devine name. Unless we say that the name, Holy Spirit is a devine name. Again it is a name we humans have given to a Spiritual Enity. The Holy Spirit is real. Therefore saying that the Holy Spirit isnt real would be blast feemous. If you are a non believer, than it doesnt really matter, and it is forgiveable. There fore it must be some kind of church rule to make it unforegiveable.
  • From the answers you received, no one is close to the truth. Let us reason here. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is to blaspheme against the authorized KJV Bible by eradicating the book. God's Holy men were actually moved by the Holy Spirit to give us the words we have now from The Holy Bible. God speaks to His Creation through a certain book. It is certainly not with newer translations, since "God despises alterations." We either have one book that leads us to the truth or we are lost. 2 Peter 2:21 "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but Holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit."
