“And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”
King James Version (KJV)

My commeit is if we are borne again Christians Jesus is not talking to us. About the sabith or healing or not abideing the law. we are sinners saved by grace in Mat 28 he will give us a chance to prove ourselves on the third day

Just so you know, many Bible reading Christians don't believe that. Do you truly believe that saying a dirty word is just as bad as committing mass murder? Or do you believe that someone committing violent rape is no different than telling a white lie?
This needs to be called out, because sometimes even Christians use mental gymnastics to pretend that their sins are 'ok'. No, it's not ok. Jesus said to not sin. He said cut off your own hand if you have to, to stop sinning. Do absolutely anything possible to stop it and avoid going to hell. If you ignore Him and sin, that's like you slapping Jesus in the face. If you keep doing it, it's possible you're not even a Christian. A Christian is a Christ follower which is an action. People who enjoy committing sin and following the world will probably go to hell, whether they call themselves a Christian or not. That is the reality that fewer people these days are grasping the seriousness of. Matthew 7:20-23.
If sin didn't matter, why would there even be a judgment day and why would sins even be reviewed in front of God? Sin absolutely matters and every single thing you do to violate God's commands will be judged. Romans 14:12
I think the false assumption comes from misinterpreting a verse. Sin is sin, but it does not mean all sin is of the same severity. That is a false assumption. For instance blasphemy is different than blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Jesus says flat out that you will not be forgiven for the latter. There are more Bible references to prove that sins have different severity. Matthew 12:36-37

We cannot talk of one sin as less bad than another sin. Sin is sin and all sins are bad. God can forgive us even if we sin against Jesus. But God will not forgive the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. The sin against the Holy Spirit is the attitude of a person who chooses on purpose not to believe God. That person has chosen strongly to oppose God's work by his Holy Spirit. It is such a strong decision that the person will not ever change his mind. These Pharisees saw the good deeds that Jesus did. They said that the power to do these deeds came from Satan. They called evil good and good evil. They could see the truth but they decided to oppose it because they are demons. This attitude puts such persons in a state in which they cannot repent. As they cannot repent, God cannot forgive them. And they cannot believe in the Lord Jesus for salvation. KJV Matthew 12:32

No man cometh unto the Father but by me. If we 're forgiven after death,Jesus will do it.

Cindy You 're correct. Jesus is God manifested in flesh and his soul is the Holy Ghost. He 's 100 human and 100 divine. This scripture means that if you accept and believe that Jesus performed miracles, but you attribute His power to Satan, that 's unforgivable. A person with that mindset stomps on His entire mission, as if he died on the cross in punishment for being a fake instead of allowing forgiveness of our sins. Jesus lived a sinless life and paid the ultimate price to grant His children eternal life. By factoring Satan anywhere into that equation, a person forfeits this blessing for damnation. Uwem No, there is nothing in the bible that refers to purgatory or forgiveness of sins after life. 1 Thess 4 13 18 says that after death we "sleep ". Then, at the appointed time, Christ will descend from Heaven with a shout and gather the dead first, and the living next. We 're encouraged to make our calling and election sure before death.

Does this statement give credence to possibility of forgiveness of some sins after life ?
Karen's comment on 2014-02-15 20:56:17:
In John 16 8 Jesus says that when the Holy Spirit comes He will convict the world concerning sin righteousness and judgment So we know that the Holy Spirit has indeed come therefore the world KNOWS there is sin they know that Jesus is the Righteous One and that they are under judgment yet many deny the truth What can not be forgiven is unbelief No one will stand before God and plead that they did not know I believe the more convicted a person is yet refusing to believe the more they lash out at GOD Christ and all things Christian I don t know if I am right but that is what I think
cindy's comment on 2013-12-14 02:43:17:
don't understand what is not forgiven. aren't all sins forgiven if you repent and are truly sorry? aren't the father and the son and the holy spirit one in the same?
Ray's comment on 2011-01-23 16:17:06:
I think it might be more to do with deception as oposed to just plain ignorence, (the great deceiver being the devil of course) In other words, if the fruit of the Tree is good (holy spirit), then praise the Lord! Do not trick and deceive the people by telling them a lie that it is bad. The priests should have been the first to worship Jesus, they were after all the educated ones.

could it mean words spoken while in the flesh can be forgiven;while words spoken when in the spirit cannot be-isn't eternal life spiritual-not phsyical
