In the Gospels, Jesus said that all sins were forgiven except for “the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.” These very sobering words are often met with a great deal of confusion and fear, especially from those who truly seek to follow Christ but are aware that they have made many mistakes, not only in previous, erroneous beliefs, but careless words. What exactly is this unforgivable sin? Is Jesus suggesting a special sacredness of the Holy Spirit that the other two members of the Trinity (Father and Son) do not have? No, that cannot be. All three persons of the Trinity are co-equally God. What then, did Jesus mean? Bob addresses this question by sharing a series of responses he once offered a fellow Christian, very worried that he personally had committed this sin.
