The Unpardonable Sin

February 19, 2014


The final rejection of the Savior is called the “unpardonable sin.” It is unpardonable because there is no other, sacrifice for, and Savior from sin, but Jesus the Son of God.

Hebrews 10:26 – says, “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins…”

To “blaspheme” the Holy Spirit is to reject the only Savior for sins.

The story goes of a man who refused to accept Christ as Savior. During evangelistic meetings at a church this man was greatly under conviction, but he would not respond to the invitation for salvation.  It was during the last night’s meeting that the man literally shook with conviction. Still, he would not accept the Lord. Eventually, he walked out of the church, slamming the door behind him. He never came back.  From that day on his whole nature seemed to change. Three weeks later he lay on his deathbed. The doctor’s could find nothing organically wrong.

The minister of the church went to visit him and the man spoke up, “Preacher, you’re wasting your time with me. That day when I walked out of the church I decided once and for all that religion was not for me.  Something seemed to die within me. My heart turned to stone. I couldn’t be saved now even if I were interested.” This man died with those words on his lips.

My friend, if you have not accepted Christ as your personal Savior, you are in danger of committing this unpardonable sin. Do not take a chance on tomorrow. Why not ask Him to take over your life right now, and settle the matter once and for all?
