Blasphemy Against the Spirit
Too many times I have spoken to Christians who are afraid that they committed the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. These Christians are sincere but also ignorant. They don't realize that the blasphemy against the Spirit comes from a very distinct context of the Bible. Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees who glibly explained away his healings by saying they were done through evil spirits and Satan.
Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or in the age to come (Matthew 12:31-32).
If they want to speak against him or his words, that might be forgiven. But if they speak against the Spirit of God who is doing the miracles that Christ produces, they will not be forgiven. Why is that so? The reason is that the evidence of who Jesus is was contained in the miracles. To make the miracles Satanic is to cut a person off from believing in Jesus. In the same way to believe that the resurrection of Christ was faked or was a product of Satan, or a trick, is also to produce a sin that cannot be forgiven in this age or the age to come. In order to be saved we have to trust Jesus with the smallest amount of faith we can pull together. Then, we are saved forever.
