Mark 3:29 can be a worrisome and fearful scripture. I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ and I can't imagine that anyone{esp.a Christian} could intentionally and with malice blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. I know that at times I have sinned and failed to follow God's will and perhaps have ignored His internal guidance, however I have never heard His actual voice and therefore I have never actually ignored His voice. To blaspheme is to vocally condemn with conviction and malice the Holy Spirit. To simply ignore God's influence and guidance as administered by the Holy Spirit is not by my understanding to be blasphemy. I feel that only a lost person who is completely and malevolently influenced by Satan,{the master blasphemer}, would have the ability to utter blasphemy with conviction against the Holy Spirit.
As for Christians, how can it be possible for a child of God with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to commit blasphemy against that which indwells in the believer? I do not think it is possible and the misinterpretation of this scripture can lead the Christian who is challenged and struggling with sin, and spiritual strongholds, that there is a possibility that he/she has committed the "unforgivably sin", and therefore eternally dammed to Hell. However:"If WE CONFESS our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9. Also: "REPENT therefore of this thy wickedness[SIN], and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee." Acts 8:22. A repentant heart who confesses his sin with the understood guarantee of forgiveness by the Lord could not possibly be able to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. Only a lost, unsaved person with the influence of a demonic spirit, never has the ability to repent and confess sin. Only such a person in this lost and malevolent state, can have the ability to utter blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. We as Christians do feel quilt, conviction and the admonition of the Holy Spirit to repent and confess sin to the Almighty God through His Son Jesus Christ by His work of redemption on the Cross of Calvary. Praise be to God Almighty!!!
