What is the unforgivable offence?
Jesus talks about the unforgivable offence in Mark 12:31-32. “Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation”
The Holy Spirit testifies of Jesus – who He is and what He has done, convicting those who do not receive and believe in Jesus’ flesh and blood sacrifice of Himself of all offences done against God and to another.
A person may reject who Jesus is in ignorance and receive forgiveness, however when a person knows the truth of who Jesus is, yet attributes His healing work to the works of evil, that person denies the conviction of the Holy Spirit and their pathway to forgiveness.
In this ongoing state of wilful rejection and false witness, Jesus is saying a person cannot receive forgiveness, as they have chosen to misrepresent the testimony of the Holy Spirit.
All who have received and believed in Jesus cannot commit such an offence.
