The Unpardonable Sin

Lesson 32

Marking Code: US
Marking Color: Black
Key Text: Matthew 12:31, 32


  1. Matthew 12:31, 32. Is there a sin that God cannot forgive? An unpardonable sin? The context of Matthew 12:31, 32 indicates that “blasphemy against the Spirit” means to speak hurtfully against the Holy Spirit. This sin is also called “the sin leading to death” (1 John 5: 16, 17), and “presumptuous” sin or ‘great transgression” (psalm 19:13).


  1. 1 Samuel 16:14. As a result of this sin, we lose the Holy Spirit’s presence and influence in our lives. Our conscience is anesthetized.


1 Timothy 4:2.


  1. 1 John 1: 7-9. There is no sin that God cannot forgive-provided we meet the conditions for forgiveness. Whatever sin we have committed, if we repent and confess it, God has promised to forgive us.


Proverbs 28:13.


  1. John 16: 8-11, 13. The work of the Holy Spirit is to bring conviction of sin and lead us to confess and forsake our sins.


John 14: 16-18, 26.


  1. Ephesians 4:30. We can grieve the Holy Spirit if we persistently harden our hearts to resist Him.


Acts 7:51.

Hebrews 3: 7, 8.


  1. Hebrews 10: 26, 29. The unpardonable sin-the sin God cannot forgive-is the sin that we don’t want pardoned! The only sin that cannot be forgiven is to sin for which we refuse to ask forgiveness. There is no sacrifice-forgiveness-for willful sin that we cherish and for which we refuse to confess and repent and ask forgiveness. God finally gives us up to our tragic choice.


  1. Hebrews 12: 14-17.  It is possible to insist on choosing darkness to the point that eventually a person cannot repent-even if he wants to. The will has become set on sin.


  1. Psalm 51:11. We need to pray daily for the gift of the Holy Spirit in our lives.


Luke 11:13.


  1. 2 Corinthians 6:2. The time to respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit is today-now!


John 6:37.
