Question: What is the unpardonable sin / unforgivable sin?
Minding the context of Matthew 12:22-32 alone, it reasons that the Lord had his apologia aimed at his audience per se viz. The Pharisees. Period. (Woe betide them!)
But of the 613 Laws of the Old Testament called the Mitzvot and 38 Commandments from the four Gospels or 1050 commands via repetition in the New Testament for believers to obey, pray tell which of these sins – venial, mortal and all – defines ‘the unpardonable sin‘? What more then of the ‘strange fire’ hailed by the Church since her infancy (Rev 1-3)? Is she any less blasphemous today?
Give the Lord His due then, the preservation of the saints rests on the laurels of Christ alone: For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous (Rom 5:19). Christ alone has preserved the pilgrim to present him holy and blameless at the Judgment Seat for an accounting to God and rewards, not condemnation. It is a done deal. Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior (Jude 24, 25).
But to begin with, the sinner that repents and believes in The Christ of God (Luke 9:20) is saved. Faith alone in Christ alone saves. Otherwise, unbelief shall pale in disbelief at the dawn of its fiery fate. Behold, the unpardonable sin.
