Unpardonable?

Recommended Posts

I have read a vast amount of material on the unpardonable sin. The common answer seems to be "as long as our are worried about it" or "you still have desire to repent and be reconciled to God", then you can feel reasonably confident you haven't committed it. I can't say I have either. I had a couple emotional experiences throughout my life and I was baptized at a young age, but I lived like the world and fell away. My heart is incredibly hard against God. I don't even know if I really want it softened. I'm worried about hell and I think I have hardened myself so much that I don't really want God. Like I want to retain control of my life but also don't want to go to hell. I know that is wrong, but I can't do anything about it anymore. I can think about the cross and not weep. I try to imagine my sin being put on Him but I can more understand the emotions of the soldiers and the Jews more than His and the disciples. I also know I have said "I" a lot and I need to get my eyes on Jesus, but in my hardened state I feel that is impossible. Even though I use the language I do, I should be treated as the hardest Christ rejector because that's really what I think I am. I think it would take a miracle to believe at this point. I have been around church, the gospel, and the Bible for most of my life yet I remain unchanged. Rebukes and exhortations don't do anything to me. I am probably wasting my time and yours by posting here, but might as well exhaust every avenue before giving up and accepting my fate because also my children will learn from my example and may also be led astray. I've already posted on two other forums. I need God to change me against my will, so to speak. Some may say He will not do that, but some do. I have to hope that He can and will because that's the only hope I have left. I can't honestly pray because I know I am not sincere. Not sure what to do. The Bible is no comfort.

Shalom Chris0699,

Welcome to Worthy Christian Forums. Please feel free to browse around and get to know everyone. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.  As soon as you post a few times and after they are approved, it'll tell us that you are "real" person and not a "bot", you'll be free to post throughout our forums and join our chat rooms.  Forgive us for this minor inconvenience, however, we've had issues in the past with Spammers!

This is a short tutorial video of how to get started with Worthy Christian Forums.

As soon as you get out of Newbie status, you'll be able to add your profile picture.

You may be interested in reading how WCF functions, and how the forums are set up, and other neat tricks to the forums.  Read our insights into WCF.

Let me share a little bit of my vision for the ministry in a parable.

Let's say I'm throwing a big party and am inviting the world to the party (the forums) and I want everyone to have a great time, eating (reading through posts being fed), drinking (being encouraged to walk in His Word), and having fellowship with one another.  In Israel, we have Shabbat meals -- and whenever you have 2 Jews -- you have 3 opinions -- it's GREAT to be opinionated.  I encourage discussions ... but during our Shabbat meals ... we never ever get to the point in disagreements whereby food is being tossed and seriously yelling takes place!  And if someone comes into the meal ... and starts throwing food ... and yells at everyone -- what do you suppose the head of the Shabbat meal will do?  He'll escort those causing problems out of the house!  Why?  Because the whole reason for the gathering was to learn from one another ... to have a great time of fellowship!  

Some people like to constantly throw food and yell ... they won't last on Worthy ... because they missed the point of the party ... it's a prequel to the true party -- the Lamb's Supper!  

All I'm trying to provide is a place to allow true fellowship ... and discussions in love ... in the hopes it will be a catalyst for true REVIVAL based on REPENTANCE!

I hope you have a blessed time at Worthy!

Chris, it sounds like you are still willing to be changed.  God loves you and has plans to move you into the peace that you desire.

The Bible is no comfort.

Here is a possible reason why. 

 

John 14:26-31 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

John 16:12-13 12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Hi Chris,

I can't speak to you about your salvation, because what you posted, does not reflect much of anything, regarding your salvation.

You say you had a couple of emotional experiences, and you were baptized when you were young.

Ok.

The emotional experiences were that you heard preaching or were involved in a worship service and this caused you to feel very spiritually emotional....... i would suspect.   Well, that is usually how it feels when God is dealing with you.

Sometimes when i hear someone post or talk who is both angry at God and also afraid of going to hell,........... i can only hope that they, you, are born again.

So, have you committed the unpardonable sin?  That's easy to find out.

Ask yourself this... "have i died and never received Christ into my heart, as my Savior".   "have i died and i was never saved"?

If thats you, then you have committed it.   If that is not you, then you could be committing it, but you wont be judged for it, until you die.

Listen,  consider the term, "un-pardon-able. sin"......... so, that is all you need to know to understand this sin...

So, what sin, can't be pardoned?  Thats the answer.  There is only one.. Its dying as a Christ Rejector.   Its a person who has never been saved, so, this sin of dying this way, means your sins followed you to God, and they were not pardoned.   This means, they were not forgiven by Jesus on the Cross while you were BREATHING.   So, the only person who can die un-pardoned,  is the person who has committed this un-pardonable , sin.

Its the sin of dying unforgiven.

Every single lost person, every single atheist, every single Christ rejector is committing the un-pardonable sin, right now.   And if they die tonight, they have committed it, and will face God un pardoned.

Its a "willful" sin.  Because the person has DECIDED to reject Christ, so, that is willfully rejecting Christ, which is to be committing the unpardonable sin.

And if you die, this is the sin that gets you judged and sent to hell.   Its this willful decision to reject Christ, all your life, and then you will pay for this sin, all your eternity, once you die.

The unpardonable sin, is the sin of dying unforgiven (un-pardoned).
