Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit?

One of the misunderstandings of the bible that Satan has capitalized on, to the detrimental of many souls, is the doctrine of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. He has made people think that their sins can’t be forgiven if they insult the Holy Spirit, by using Holy Spirit as a curse word like they do with Jesus or God. To be fair, our bible translators didn’t take time to find an easy-to-understand meaning for the verses that deal with the matter, but I wonder how they would have done it though, so they are not to blame nonetheless.

In Luke 12:10, the bible says “And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven”. Does the bible say you would be forgiven if you say a curse word against Jesus, but you won’t be forgiven if you say the same curse word but using the Holy Spirit? It sounds like it does, but isn’t Jesus, God the Father and Holy Spirit one and the same God? The bible says that Holy Spirit is God manifested in spirit form (1 John 3:24), while Jesus is still God but manifested in a human form (John 1:1-3). So what makes it forgivable to curse Jesus when He’s God, but not Holy Spirit who is still God? It doesn’t make sense, because Jesus and Holy Spirit is one and the same God. The same curse that you would be making against Jesus would still apply to Holy Spirit, even though you used the name of Jesus. So surely blaspheming against the Holy Spirit should mean something more, besides saying a curse word to the Holy Spirit.

Let’s look at the character of the Holy Spirit, and see how the Holy Spirit can be blasphemed (offended) to a point of no forgiveness for the offender. The bible describes the character of Holy Spirit as follows:

  • Holy Spirit testifies to Jesus’ sovereignty (John 15:26)

If you deny that Jesus ever existed, even though the Holy Spirit testifies to His existence, then you are blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. If in your mind Jesus is just like any other prophet or wise person who lived on earth, then you blaspheme against the Holy Spirit because He testifies to Jesus’ sovereignty as God in human flesh. If Jesus was never God or equal to God, if He was never conceived supernaturally, and if He was never resurrected and descended to heaven, then you are telling Holy Spirit that He’s a liar for testifying to the contrary. If you think Jesus’ death on the cross was just an ordinary death, and it has no bearing on where you spend eternity, while His blood can’t wash away all sins, then you are blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. You are spitting on the face of Holy Spirit if you continually live a life of sin, when Holy Spirit testifies that bondage that sin has on people has been broken.

Do you know a way in which a person’s sins can be forgiven without going through the cross of Jesus Christ? Can a person have their sins forgiven when they deny the existence of Jesus? Can any other prophet forgive the sins of men, if Jesus was just like any other prophet? All answers are no! So are you surprised then when the bible says “But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin” (Mark 3:28-29).

If you deny Jesus’ sovereignty, which Holy Spirit testifies to, then you are a lost case and nobody can help you and none of your sins can be forgiven. This is what it means by blaspheming against Holy Spirit.

  • Holy Spirit ‘wrote’ the bible (2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:16)

If you think the bible was written without the inspiration of Holy Spirit, then you are insulting Him because He was involved in every process of the bible. When people insist that the bible has been tampered with during the Council of Nicea, then they are insulting Holy Spirit who was involved from page 1 to the last page. If the bible can’t be trusted as a factual historical account of humankind, then we are clearly telling Holy Spirit that He is a liar for telling us otherwise. If anything that Jesus or the prophets are said to have done in the bible is suspicious or unlikely, then we are questioning the honesty of Holy Spirit. So how we can expect to have our sins forgiven based on the authority of a suspicious source of the bible? If we suspect that Jesus went to the cross and rose again on the third day, then how we can be saved by the same cross and resurrection that we are not certain ever happened? It’s impossible, and as such our sins will remain unforgiven for eternity.

  • Holy Spirit convicts the world of guilt (sins) (John 16:7)

The most unpopular people in the world are pastors who preach against all kinds of sins. They are unpopular because they stir up Holy Spirit to work in people’s hearts and lives.  If you are a fornicator, you will never tolerate a sermon that preaches against fornication, not because the pastor would be insulting your intelligence with ancient stereotypes, but because Holy Spirit would transfer that sermon from the pastor’s mouth straight to the depths of your heart. When that happens, you are left with no choice but recognize that you are a sinner faced with God’s wrath, and you need to repent. This is the same reason many people with sin issues stay away from churches, or even choose those churches that never preach against sin. They make sure that they stay away from any preaching that will stir up Holy Spirit, so they can’t be bothered with the reality of the sins that engulf their hearts.

So how do you blaspheme against Holy Spirit then? You blaspheme against Him by refusing to repent from your sins even after He penetrated your heart and convicted you of your sins. You blaspheme against Him by refusing to listen to any sermon that will convict you of your sins, while tolerating those sermons that won’t make you uncomfortable. In this way, your sins remain unforgiven for eternity. As the bible says “how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?” (Romans 10:14). You are not going to have your sins forgiven, if you refuse to listen to (or read) anything that will get you to a point of repentance and asking for forgiveness. That’s blaspheming against Holy Spirit’s power to convict the world of guilt!

  • Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth, and teacher of all things concerning God and the Bible (John 14:17, 25)

I have seen people with Doctorates in Theology, who are the biggest deniers of the truths of the bible. They have studied the bible without the assistance of Holy Spirit, and they wonder why the bible is difficult for them to understand or believe. Some of them have managed to find contradictions where there are none, because they denied Holy Spirit the opportunity to play His role as a teacher of the bible and all things concerning God. They blasphemed against Holy Spirit by trying to do His role as a teacher themselves. No wonder some of them declare themselves atheist, and as such their sins remain unforgiven for all eternity. The last time I checked, atheists are those people who refuse to have their sins forgiven, and the bible is right when it says they have committed sins that can’t be forgiven by blaspheming against Holy Spirit.

As we have seen, saying curse words against Holy Spirit is not what the bible refers to when it speaks of ‘blaspheming against Holy Spirit’, even though curse words could lead to an unrepentant heart towards God and more importantly unforgivable sins. The bible described the doctrine of ‘blaspheming against Holy Spirit’ perfectly in Proverbs 29:1. It says “A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy”. Take note of the words ‘without remedy’. It clearly shows that ‘blaspheming against Holy Spirit’ is not a New Testament teaching, but it has been there all along, and it doesn’t refer to specifically cursing but rather an unrepentant heart towards warnings and efforts by Holy Spirit.

Are you scared you might have blasphemed against Holy Spirit and committed an unforgivable sin? Don’t worry, the fact that you are worried about forgiveness of your sins and the guilt thereof, shows that Holy Spirit has succeeded in your life, in His role as one who ‘convicts the world of guilt’. As the proverb says ‘the first step to getting help is to recognize that you do’, and you do recognize that you do need God’s forgiveness. So all you need to do is ask God for forgiveness and He will forgive you, curse words or not He will forgive you.

Charles Spurgeon said on “The Unpardonable Sin”:
One friend perhaps says, “I am afraid that I have committed the unpardonable sin.” If you come to Christ, you have not, I know; for he who comes to Him, Jesus will in no wise cast out. He cannot, therefore, have committed the unpardonable sin. Come along with you, man, and if you are blacker than all the rest of the sinners in the world, so much the more glorious shall be the grace of God when it shall have proved its power by washing you whiter than snow in the precious blood of Jesus.

    Hi! I have been hearing curse words against GOD. And trying to making them stop. I don’t believe its me thinking curse words, cause I don’t speak in this manner. Could use some advise. I love GOD, & trying to get closer!

    • I didn’t understand whether you have been thinking curse words against God or you have been hearing people say curse words against God. Anyway, if you have been hearing people say curse words against God and they end up remaining in your mind, then it doesn’t mean you are sinning against Him. It’s given that what people say to us remain in our minds for a long time, so it doesn’t discredit us in anyway. Hence Jesus said ‘a man is not defiled by what enters their mouths (mind)’ (Read Matthew 15:1-28). The problem comes when we convert those curse words that entered our mind into becoming our own, by actually saying those words ourselves.

      Here’s the solution. Try to refrain from all places and people who use those curse words, because even though they may be saying them unintentionally the likelihood is that Satan is using them to get at you and disturb your peace. If you can’t aviod those people, then make it clear to them that you don’t appreaciate it and they should stop. Remember that what we store our minds has the potential to defile or strengthen us, like with sermons. So treat these curse words in the opposite manner in which you would treat a good sermon from your pastor. Since you try to absord and replay the sermon in your mind over and over again, then you should try to delete and avoid those curse words in your mind as much as possible.

      The bible gives an incredible solution to how you can deal with evil thoughts in your mind. In Phillipians 4:8 the bible says “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things”. So whenever those evil thoughts makes their way into your remembrance, then substitute them with godly thoughts. It takes time and a whole of discipline, but it always works.

      Whenever those curse words comes again, think about the bible verse you like.

    Greetings in Jesus’ Name.
    Brother I am tormented by blasphemous thoughts against the Holy Ghost, Jesus and The Father as well. I as still a new born again christian, still an adolescent. i bother told me aout the unforgivable sin., i misinterpreted it. in fact he explained it to me wrongly. since the i’m tormented. i really love God and I really don’t want to hurt hi. I’m scared because i dont want to go hell. please help me brother.

    • Bheekha, Christianity is like riding a bicycle for the first time, if you stopped going forward then you’ll fall but if you continue going forward then in time your riding skills will improve and your feet will be steady. Almost everyone when they started being a Christian they struggled with one thing or the other, but in time they became strong and managed to deal with sin’s hold in their life. Don’t be discouraged, but believe that God loves you and He will help you overcome your bad thoughts. One way I use to overcome bad thoughts is to substitute them with good ones. The bible says “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Phillipians 4:8). So the next time you have bad thoughts then quickly think about good things that are happening in your life, like the mercy you have received from God. In time, as it is with everything, your thoughts will be subject to God and you will overcome bad ones.

      Most importantly, pray to God about your thoughts, and don’t forget to apologise to Him about them. The best way you can overcome this is by occupying your life with the bible. When you read the bible a lot, then you end up having many revelations from God that occupy your life, and your mind becomes busy with the things of God.

      NB: Never doubt God’s love for you, because that’s the best trick Satan uses against new converts – he makes new converts think they are a disappointment to God and most end up leaving the faith. God cares about you and He will never leave you no forsake you, with or without your failures.

    Great article! I have a similar problem to the other posters. Even if thoughts felt as if they were deliberate on my part, can I still repent and be saved? I know this sounds odd, I’ve been a Christian for 24 years. I am terrified that I have lost my salvation.

    • Even though we are Christians, we still sin, but the difference is that we are not under the control of sin. We unintentionally sin, and when that occurs we should ask God for forgiveness and ask Him to help us to live a godly live. Can you repent? Yes! The best way to deal with evil thoughts is to fill your mind with the word of God so you can substitute your evil thoughts with godly thoughts. It doesn’t help watching pornography and then expect to have godly thoughts. When your mind is exposed to pornography, then only pornographic thoughts will rule your mind, hence it’s important for a Christian to be filled with the word of God.

      Sound like me…you do. However, I am pushing. I love God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The enemy wants you to give up! But you cant you must do what the Lord has called you to do in this life. Fast, pray, keep hearing the Word. Praise Praise is what you have to do. God knows your heart. Didnt he promise to forgive all of our iniquities, cleanse us with His precious Blood of all unrighteousness! I cant let this go ….I am determine to have the victory. Love u and God bless you!

    Hi, I recently was angry with God because of my situation. I’m believe I’m saved but while I was angry I was sad and i thought about my pastor saying how we can “grieve” the Holy Spirit. Then as I grieved I knew the Holy Spirit grieved because of my sin and I deliberately in my heart and maybe out of my mouth(can’t really remember) said with anger and intent to hurt “yeah, grieve I don’t care!” But later while I was in the gym a few mins later, I felt lost and trully questioned my salvation in Jesus. I then thought of other religions in a stupid attempt to make God feel sorrowful of me in blatent disrespect. Then a few mins later I cried out for help to Him. Its been about a week since that happened, why does it bother me now? Ots almost as if I did it yesterday. But the day of I took no notice to what I had done because I didn’t feel like it was blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Did I blaspheme? Canine be forgiven? I repented several times. Thank you

    • There is not a sin that God can’t forgive, if we ask Him for forgiveness. The bible, which is God’s Consititution that even He can’t go against, says God “forgives wickedness, rebellion and sin” (Exodus 34:7), and most importantly it says “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). If the bible, that God has written, says God can and will forgive you, then why do you have doubts? I know why, because there’s a person called Satan, and the bible says “he was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44). Satan lies to people and tell them that God cant forgive them, which is why I wrote this article to begin with. Satan has used the dotrine of ‘blasphemy of the Holy Spirit’ to lie to people and keep them away from God, but you should not allow him to cheat you of your salvation. God loves you, and He doesn’t take pleasure in seeing people in their sins, He wants all people to repent and be reconciled with Him. How do I know that? The bible says God “wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4). God wants you to be saved and He’s ready to forgive you, so don’t ever think otherwise.

    I have been in the same situations where the Devil has attacked me, whenever the thoughts entered my head, I read scripture, praise God, pray…
    God does deliver and my Faith is even stronger now…..since then, he has attacked me again but THIS time I attack back with the word of GOD!

    i have a question. i have been having bad thoughts enter my mind about the holy spirit. and now its like i cant hear god anymore. i feel bad and i want god but have i blasohemed the spirit of God? I need prayer for an answer from god and just answers . it seems like the thoughts are mine

  8. Matt said

    I am seriously concerned. I have been attacked by the enemy for some while now and when I was weak, I allowed the thought into my head it doesn’t matter anyway. It does and it did. every lie the enemy comes against you with must be countered with the word of truth, which comes from scripture. It is written as Yehushua said. Christ tells the truth. It is true. This is belief. You have already overcome the enemy and that is something the enemy will try and tell you you haveb’t by keeping you depressed miserable in bondage through words etc. The enemy will try and decieve you out of this knowledge. Do not be weak. The enemy is a liar and the father of all lies.

    Rebuke him immeadiately with the Word of God and do not take any resistance. Send the lie(s) back straight away say I do not believe in you or a single word out of your mouth because JESUS says this. And I believe Him. This is how to deal with a person who attakcs with leis and onslaughts against a believer. Cut off comunications with these people. I knew I was weak at the time, for it is a continous warfare and battle we are in and I was drained from fighting all day. Lies and allegations can come as fiery darts from the enemy and those used by the enemy to attack you. You need SPIRITUAL ARMOUR and PROTECTION OF THE LORD. Resist the attacks of the enemy.

    This is crucial otherwise you will be overcome. I did not do enough on that night to overcome the deciever. I got hit by doubt and confusion. I went to bed thinking I had been so bad God could not forgive me. This was a guilt trip from the enemy. Of course I had been forgiven by God and He Loves me but I had been tricked out of knowing this.
    This was the repressive attitude and words I had been listening to all day. God can forgive you. The one thing He cannot do is forgive someone who does not believe in Him. You do not need to seek forgiveness from your mother or any other person on earth because they do not have the power and authority to forgive sins. Only Christ Yahusuha does, so He is the only person you go to to seek forgiveness and He will. You must believe in Him to do so.

    If you lose that belief having already had it and a spirit filled life with the Lord the end condition is worse than that iof the first (the unrepentant sinner who has not been born again or saved). It is better to have not been saved. How bad is that. You have already comitted a sin against the Holy Spirit, by being weak enough to succumb to lies that God the Father cannot forgive you. Of course He can, so BELIEVE IT and DO NOT DOUBT FOR ONE SECOND.

    At the time I just so much wanted to go to sleep at my Mum’s and forget the troubles of the day caused by her evil and non belief and I was so tired I just closed my eyes and wanted to go to sleep without the mental willpower to resist. I thought that God hated me. As you can see it was all about ‘me’ which was the deception. It should have been all about God not me. Seek God and Go YES FATHER I repent of my sins please forgive me.

    I had too much hatred of myself I did not even do this. I couldn’t be bothered ast that time even though you must reprent and seek forgiveness as soon as you commit a sin and believe that it is forgiven as there is a time frame to forgiven in and the Holy Spirit will be tellin you straight away to repent of that sin.

    My Mum had the evil in her to try and convince me I had been that bad God cold not forgive me. Of past situations which in all reality are not that bad, but my mum is an evil person a liar and distorter of truth as the enemy is.

    I felt cold and empty and awoke later to be missing something. That I believe is the Holy spirit which fulfills you and makes you happy in all situations and complete you as a person. I doubted the Holy Spirit. Which is a sin. My conviction in the Fatehr were shaken just for a second as to not get my response, because I went into shock.

    At this moment I am not hearing from God or feeling Life in my Spirit and as a spirit filled beliver this saddens me. I am not myself. I am far from God. I believe He has punished me for this weakness. God does not mess around. Even with His Angels he is perfectly serious. I had been warned not to go back there for some time as simply put my Mum is too dangerous. This I felt in my spirt all the previous evening even though I was confused as to where I was going to stay. I thought if I went back there I could overcome the evil or things would have changed and I went back there in faith that they would however this was contrary to God’s will. Howvever they had not. The enemy does not change. A leopard does not change his spots. And I am paying the price for trying to change them rather than yeilding to God who simply said stay away form her.

    Tehre are poisonous witches out there. They exist.

    Do not take the Word of God lightly. It is perfectly serious. Do not play around or be indecisive with God. I had been prone to an indecisive mind and that is my fault for not surredering completely to the Will of God. Not my will but the will of the Father in Heaven.

    I pray I will see the Kingdom on Earth or in Heaven.

    I am not myself. Regarding this is says those who have a faith and lose it, are better to have not been saved.

    Seek the truth. And keep to it no matter what do not abandon you Faith no mater how bad the situation is and more importantly know that God loves you and you must resist the enemy by Gods love keep it in you.

    I’m not sure I agree with the first point. Does that mean Muslims have committed the unforgivable sin? They reject Jesus as Lord. And the Lord chooses to reveal Himself to some of them and they repent and are saved. And yet that wouldn’t be possible if they had committed the unforgivable sin.

    Given the context of what Jesus was saying (I think the pharisees were saying He is casting out demons by the power of Satan) I suspect that the Holy Spirit would be blasphemed if you truly knew that God was doing something but you attributed it to Satan.

    I don’t think thinking nasty things about God is committing it and I once heard a pastor claim he too had such thoughts. I think you need to take every thought captive and praise God to allow you to have such thoughts as it focuses your attention on Him and you can praise Him and worship Him. Remember: submit to God, resist the Devil and he shall flee.

  10. Valeri-experienced in these tortures said

    This is about Anthony’s statement. And more..
    “Given the context of what Jesus was saying (I think the pharisees were saying He is casting out demons by the power of Satan) I suspect that the Holy Spirit would be blasphemed if you truly knew that God was doing something but you attributed it to Satan.”

    But, I would say that even still someone saying such a thing as this can be forgiven…because God can forgive all sins.
    The Pharisees were in danger because they had turned their backs on God over and over. They were daily living their lives as imposters and self seekers. Preachers and not practicers. Satan was their father and it was not in their heart to love God because they were not truly choosing Him. It was their deliberate choice, they were choosing to live a life as a Sheppard fraud and choosing to not love God. They loved their pride and their position of fame among the people. They knew His word and still hardened their hearts to loving God.

    Could they have been forgiven at this point? God Himself, Jesus the son of God, the Savior who washes away Sin was before them, an obvious invitation.

    The Pharisees had already been offending Holy Spirit by their choice to not really know God. And once again continued to offend when in making the above statement to Jesus. They were even Still rejecting the invitation, making their firm decision. All in all showing their true decision bringing themselves in more danger of the fires of hell as Jesus spoke of. Matt 12:30 “He that is not with me is against Me”.

    I personally know what these blasphemy tortures are by night after night, day after day horrific experience. I suffered them a long time and many other tortures. And subsequently I know my adversary well because of the wisdom God has given me through these experiences. He is a liar mimicking our own voice in our minds to make us think we are cursing God and/or His Spirit and His Son. He pushes us to believe we are committing this sin or that we will. He makes it hard for us to see the truth that we are not going to hell if we open our mouths and say such things. Don’t let the thoughts freak you out when they come, try to ignore them and let them pass without becoming fearful or offended. The enemy knows you are afraid and your fear empowers him. It is not you, so don’t feel you have to repent every cursing word passing…it shows the enemy you are afraid and are not holding to the truth. Though do take time to come before God and repent because these things of the enemy do get on you and you need to be washed. But, just let the thoughts ride and do not panic and when you feel strong try to cover your thought patterns (trigger words as well) with good things…like mentioned by the author of this post. New and good thoughts will build over the bad ones and the bad ones will fade eventually. It is a work in progress and also God can work in your mind. Call Him to help and free you. But when you understand the enemy is lying, that you are not going to be separated from God forever by saying something against Him, then it will bring freedom as well. It is only when you continually walk away from God, even after He has come many times to draw you and you continually reject Him. It is a more profound thing than thoughts and words, it is a heart condition of when you have firmly decided to leave God for good, and Gods reaching hand doesn’t reach anymore. He may reach again after you have left, and again but if you don’t return He eventually stops reaching. He’s not going to make a person be with Him. And if that last sentence made you afraid…ignore it…you obviously want to be with God.
    Hold on to Him. He loves You!
    God Bless

    hello,
    i am a 17 yr old… i believe in christ and i wish to get the holy spirit in me for real… i have repented in the past and walked around thinking that i had the holy spirit.. but i keep committing horrible sins… unable to control myself from committing so… :/ i do not know when this would stop… i really wish to become a good hearted person and i dont even pray the day i commit such sins… because i am ashamed to stand in front of god… i really wish i got the holy spirit in me… would God help me after what i have done???

    • Upasana, the bible says “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). By being Christian it doesn’t mean we are perfect, and we sin we shouldn’t be afraid to come to God and plead for mercy. Satan wants to keep us from God, hence the bible says we should come boldly, so don’t allow Satan to keep you further away from God. Whether you have sinned or not, you should always come to God in boldness and He will always forgive you of all your sins. There’s no sin that’s unforgivable, only those that you don’t want God to forgive you for. If you dont’ ask for mercy from God, then your sins will remain forgiven.

    • shelly said

      sounds like perhaps the Holy Spirit is leading you towards holiness living. It’s called being sanctified. One CAN live above sin everyday. We don’t have to sin. When one is sanctified, our will is no longer leaning towards sin. God COMPLETELY removes the desire to sin. Sanctification is a defintite instantaneous work of grace that a believer can experience. Look for a good holiness church that preaches such and see if that isn’t what you’ve been yearning for in your life.!!!

    Hi, I said directly to the holy spirit right before my salvation or right after to The F word off and to leave me a lone that I didn’t care what he wanted to do in my life.that was 6 and 1/2 years ago. Since then I believe I have recieved the holy spirit, gone on encounters, speak in tongues and repented. According to what I have read people say that blasphemy is not being able to ask for forgiveness because you have rejected the holy Spirits leading. Since then I have been repenting for my sins. Any way I ask that if using the F word is blasphemy becuase in..Ist Timothy 20 it says…”During the course of his apostolic ministry Paul was forced occasionally to deal with false teachers who were damaging the faith of others.

    “Two of these renegades were Hymenaeus and Alexander, who had made shipwreck of the faith of some. Accordingly, Paul informed Timothy that he “delivered unto Satan” these rebels that “they might be taught not to blaspheme.”

    Then in 2nd Timothy 16″ But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness. 17 And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, 18 who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some. ”

    So in 1st Timothy it talks about how Hymenaeus and Alexander were sent to Satan so that they may be tought not to blaspehmy……….

    and then in 2 Timothy 16 the word of God tells us not to use “Profane” and idle blabbing I enphesize “PROFANE” because doesn’t that mean to cuse/ sware. use ethe F word? and the Word continues and mentions Hymenaeus again in this passage. I am just making the connection.so isn’t that blasphemy?

    Hi last comment. I also found in Hebrews 3 verse 7 7 So, as the Holy Spirit says:
    “Today, if you hear his voice,
    8 do not harden your hearts
    as you did in the rebellion,
    during the time of testing in the wilderness,
    9 where your ancestors tested and tried me,
    though for forty years they saw what I did.
    10 That is why I was angry with that generation;
    I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray,
    and they have not known my ways.’
    11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
    ‘They shall never enter my rest.’ ”[b]

    12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13 But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. 14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. 15 As has just been said:

    “Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts
    as you did in the rebellion.”[c]

    so the beginning part of this verse says if you hear the holy speaking speakin….and the end part of this passage says “Today if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion…………”hardening your heart does not say blasphemy, but rather rebellion. So isn’t what everyone is saying about blasphemy being rejecting the Holy Spirits call to repentence untrue because here it was talking about rebellion….?

    Speaking in tongues? Seriously?

    I suggest you see a psychiatrist.

  15. Anthony said

    I’m not sure that was particularly helpful.

    Why do you suggest she see a psychiatrist?

    Isn’t speaking in tongues listed as one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit? I don’t see that He has stopped giving them.

    • Adam Wasson said

      I said some swear words to the Holy Spirit with the F word and such. It seems that Angela has done the same thing and yet God still communes with her through tongues. Am I wrong?

    • Jonathan Bernier said

      The psychiatrist is blaspheming against the Holy Spirit, the psychiatrist is an antichrist himself, and you know it. Psychiatry is 100% illegitimate in the United States of America. Psychiatrists are men of flesh who piss and urinate on the Constitution of the United States of America, amen. Now, you will obey that, and shut the fuck up about it, asshole. Amen.

  16. Charles Spurgeon said on “The Unpardonable Sin”:
    One friend perhaps says, “I am afraid that I have committed the unpardonable sin.” If you come to Christ, you have not, I know; for he who comes to Him, Jesus will in no wise cast out. He cannot, therefore, have committed the unpardonable sin. Come along with you, man, and if you are blacker than all the rest of the sinners in the world, so much the more glorious shall be the grace of God when it shall have proved its power by washing you whiter than snow in the precious blood of Jesus.

  17. Paul said

    Hi, I’m really scared. when i first heard about the indelible sin my mind unintetionally cursed the holy spirit at the most unknown times. is there anyway i can be forgivin? can i be prayed for

  18. Anthony said

    I don’t think you need to worry. Just thinking a curse word or cursing the Holy Spirit is blaspheming Him. Read what the Pharisees did – they said Jesus was attacking Satan with the power of Satan, when they knew it is the power of God. If you knowingly say something is Satan when you know it’s God then you’re in danger.

    Cursing the Holy Spirit isn’t a good thing to do, but it’s not the unforgivable sin.

    Sounds like an attack to me. Remember, submit to God, resist the Devil and he shall flee.

    You’re OK, don’t let it worry you! You haven’t committed the unforgivable sin!

  19. Anthony said

    Hmm.

    Sorry! I meant to say “just thinking a curse word or cursing the Holy Spirit ISN’T blaspheming Him”. It’s blaspheming God, of course, but not the very specific sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit.

    If you know something to be the act of God and yet still say Satan is doing it, then you’re likely to be blaspheming the Spirit.

  20. this happened to me too. i worried about blaspheming the Holy Spirit. But when you ‘fuel the fire’ and try to resist certain thoughts, i ended up thinking it. Just straight out. I had before that only wondered how you would manage to say something against the Holy Spirit. I thought that calling it evil was it. then all the sudden i did it! it came out of no where! so then, distraught and confused and concerned, i scoured for answers as to whether or not i could ever be forgiven of what i had just thought which i know is nonsense. Then i found out that it means dying in a state of rejecting God, of rejecting His Spirit. It’s a state of not wanting God’s love or Him as Saviour. Its living and wanting this world and self-indulgence, our fun, our wealth, not caring about eternity. not wanting His forgiveness for our sins, but wanting to live in them. I am often plagued by evil thoughts, even against God. they are quite sick. But then i remember what St Paul wrote about. and i feel a little bit better. i know i love God and am scared of being in hell- i certainly deserve hell, but i don’t want to be without Him for any amount of time. I’m often scared about this. when you’re scared and hurt you reject God. Yes it is the best advice. Fill up your time with GOOD things and GOOD thoughts. increasingly the evil that you have within our worldly state will be UNDER control. We were sinners. we once gave into the evil of things. we once lived for ourselves, hurting others because we were hurt. Thinking is dog vs dog world. God is faithful His mercy is renewed every day. When we forgive, have mercy, do good, in thought word and deed, we can TRAIN ourselves out of it. God has comforted my heart with the message, that the Saints were sinners, day by day we chip away at an immensely huge boulder. He is with you. He won’t leave you. He loves you and has fought hard for you. He sees to the end of time. He is consistent. He doesn’t repent of the gifts He gives us. He won’t let you go. Even when you let go. But if you reject Him, His love, mercy, forgiveness, healing, then you can’t be healed, you can’t find forgiveness… we can always ask Him for help in that.

  21. Hi… My name is bryan… I had this similar situation regarding blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. One day, as I was reading the bible, I read the passage in Luke that says whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. Suddenly, these bad thoughts came out of my mind, even though I can’t control it, but it still pursues me to think even though I don’t want to…
    Also, at once, I think this bad thoughts to recall what I just think of. But then, it just makes me feel more guilt even thinking the phrase of these bad thoughts… Is there a chance for me to enter salvation???

    • There is a chance for you to receive forgiveness and salvation from God. The bible is clear that God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. Ask forgiveness from God and He will forgive you.

  22. Anthony said

    There is absolutely a chance for you to enter salvation. Don’t be fooled by the liar!

    Don’t forget we are to take every thought captive! When you start thinking bad things (and don’t worry, we all do – I thought I was the only one until I went to a men’s meeting and the pastor said he sometimes thinks terrible things about God and the others in the meeting agreed that they did!) just start praising God and Jesus in your mind!

    Praise Him for His love, His grace, His greatness and majesty, any of His amazing attributes that come to mind. It’ll be a fight, but the bad thoughts will start to go. Just keep doing that. I did and it worked for me.

    And don’t worry. You’re experiencing what every Christian ever has suffered. If you’ve given your life to Jesus, you’re still saved!

  23. Donicio said

    Why would God put this in the Bible if so many people would struggle with thinking they have committed this sin? Once any person is told not to think of something they think it! Once we read Blaspemy against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, us who have struggled immediately think a bad thought against the Holy Spirit? Wouldn’t Jesus know we would have been tormented by this passage without explaining it more? This torments me every day!! What human really knows the truth but God himself? Thats why we can’t be comforted thinking our everlasting soul is on the line….. All these websites I look and read the same thing… people worried that they have committed this sin and pastors and peoples opinions that we have or haven’t……. I don’t believe the True Lord God would put something in the Bible to willfully make us committ the unpardonable sin!! It was the Pharisees hearts that our Lord Jesus saw that would never come to repentance! I think they new Jesus miracles came from God deep down and still rejected Gods True LOVE AND GRACE for worldly things… Jesus saw their hearts!! Am I wrong? Sorry this was so long, I had to say this to someone somewhere… Can I get many peoples opinions?

  24. Donicio, you are right in that many people are struggling with this very issue, hence I wrote this post to begin with so they can get comforted. Unfortunately Satan has a way of twisting the truth so it can appear in another way, he did that with Eve, and the bible says “he is the father of lies”. He uses this verse to lie to people and tell them that God won’t forgive them, when we know from the bible that “God is just to forgive us all our sins”. I wish every Pastor can preach about this, so people can be freed from Satan’s lies.

    Hi ok my thinking is swearing at god and Jesus and the holy ghost ok like the baddest names you can think of you know the devil and you know the s and the d word this happens in my thinkIng every day but i saw out no it’s not true and then I swear at the devil but this is all in the thinking that is hard to stop I try to stop it but a lot of times it slips out of my thinking then my thinking say it I don’t mean it is that blasphemy can I be forgiven

    I got understanding of what the unforgivable sin? I have that proble for 2years. But, today I realize what it shows or not. Thank you for this article and keep pray for me to get in touch with God like before days.

  29. I got another option about what the unpardonable/unforgivable sin is. My heart tells me it is cursing or offending the Holy Spirit in a profane way. Like curse words you blaspheme the Holy Spirit. I’m admitting it to you today. If you hear it in your mind you haven’t blasphemed the Holy Spirit. Only if you say it or utter it sound off will it not be forgiven. Sometimes telling the truth will offend others, but someone must speak. Denying, unbelief, rejecting , the Holy Spirit isn’t blaspheming. It is a speaking sin. You must say it. For God’s sake, don’t say it. Pray if you have done it that he can save you for the sake of His undeserved kindness. God be with all of you.

    Hi, Leah here, I have this problem, but nowhere can I find the answer, I have recently learned of this unforgivable sin, but also I have learned committing such sins unknowing they are unforgivable sins are perhaps forgivable after all? Is this true? I have committed this sin accidental, as saying “Screw you God, fuck you to hell.” but I had no idea what I was doing was so terrible, I LOVE God, in great measures, I don’t want to go to hell, please could some one help me, I have repented, and nor more will I say such mean things, am I forgiven?

    Hello, I am seriously worried about the unforgivable sin and when I am around things where the Holy Spirit is working e.g in church or at like deliverance meetings. These uncontrollable thoughts come into my head saying it’s not of God, but I start getting proper worried as I know I don’t believe them and it just causes me so much distress. And I keep crying out to the Lord as I believe in Him and I know they are not true. I need serious help please. I’ve even considered suicide just to remove these evil thoughts from of my mind. It’s like as soon as I’ve been delving deeper in the Word of God, it’s like there are more attacks on me. I love Christ so much and I don’t ever want to go to hell. I was recently shown hell in a dream aswell, and this made me worry even more, like maybe that’s where I am going. Please, what should I do?

    • Matthew said

      I do not thin you are going to hell my friend. These topics are indeed very serious. I believe you are very aware of the reality of this place and the dream may have been to show you where man others are headed. If you are serious in your convictions which I believe you are I see no reason for you to go to that place as a final destination. That is just my opinion.

    Hello there. I was born Christian but never knew the world of god. God has called me to repentance . I have repented all my since. I have very very positive connection with God and Jesus and love them so much. Every since I have read the scripted about unforgivable since . Curse came into my my mind. But Ignored it for 2 month but then I had doubt it because I didn’t really know what unforgivable sin was . It been 2 months that I was so terrified and tormented . Cry and broken heart . Because I love God and Jesus . I have explained this to my cousin then my cousin told me no that is from the evil he want to deceive. My cousin explained the meaning of the unforgivable sin. Then more and more thoughts came into my mind about the power of god and Jesus miracles just like what the Jews said to Jesus, ever since those thought coming to me it dwell on me and I am more terrified and down . I feel like I am actually saying and there is no forgiveness. I am living by spirit ever since I received Jesus Christ as my saviour . Does this mean I have committed the unforgivable sin? Please help

    Hi,
    So a few things in my life may have happened, i cant remember the exact story but i will say it the best i can remember, god knows i wanna say the truth in this matter. i never knew Gods word or the spirits gifts, I have a memory that im sitting on the couch flipping the channels and came across a woman speaking in tongues and said that woman is possessed.

    The second memory is im driving down the road, its either before or right after i came to christ, im picking my kids up at there christian school, a few years before that they where doing halloween and kids were dressing like devils and other stuff, i dont know if it was before or after me coming to christ but i said they were devil worshipers. im not sure of the exact stuff that happened.

    The third one is i called God a evil spirit.

    im just ashamed, and fearful of hell fire. I know god is real and Jesus lives. he lives like we breathe. im just feeling down and stressed. I didnt know these things. am i lost before im saved

    So now another thing came to me. Its a memory of me saying i called god a evil spirit.

    All these things came or happened before i knew about God The true living God and the Son Jesus. didnt the bible call satan the god of this world? Im just hoping and praying im not condemned for saying those things, i think i said them into the reference to this world and the things that happen and maybe even about hell, im just hoping and praying for a response .

    • Anthony said

      No one can be lost before they’re saved. From what I read in the book of Hebrews, only those who have tasted the goodness of God can go away so far that it is impossible to return.

      What you did is exactly what Sello Rasephei said above. You said terrible things about God. But we all do. We all have. You’re no different from any other person before they met Jesus. I’ve even met a pastor who confessed to having “terrible thoughts about God”. He has those thoughts and he’s saved. And ministering to others.

      The enemy will attempt to use your thoughts against you. Your response is to take every thought captive and to submit to God and resist the devil (and he will flee).

      God loves you. He wants you to be saved and not perish. If you confess your sins to Him, He will forgive you and He will forget your sins.

      You, and the others above, have nothing to worry about. No one here has done something that cannot be forgiven.

      I don’t believe it’s easy to commit the sin. I certainly don’t think it consists of thinking some bad thoughts about God.

      Don’t be afraid. Ask the Lord tonight to show you His love for you. Then put this behind you and do what He has already done – forgotten this whole thing!

      God bless you, my friend. See you in heaven!

      • charles said

        The memories our of things i said. Over and over i am tormented by the 3 things, saying that i blasphemed the holy spirit. that i said them things. i know God is Good i see no wrong in him. Im just so afraid them things above out the unpardonable sin, i will ask him tonight to show me love.

      • Anthony said

        What you’re experiencing is heavy condemnation sent by the enemy. This isn’t God convicting you of wrong doing. It is Satan accusing you.

        You cannot commit the unforgivable sin before you are saved. And once you are saved, all sins are forgiven.

        God has forgiven you. You must forgive yourself now. Don’t be led astray by a lie from our enemy.

        Thinking bad thoughts about God isn’t blaspheming the Holy Spirit, it is an attack by the enemy to push you away from Jesus. Next time you feel condemned, pray. Praise God. Thank Him for the good things He has done for you. Worship Him. Sing His praises. The attacks will stop coming as soon as you use them to move closer to the Lord.

        The Lord bless you richly, my friend!

        I’m really scared because in the past I was angry at God and I think I told the Holy Spirit that He was evil and was the devil Himself, right after I said it I was sorry. Didn’t actually mean it but I was angry at God so said it , now I’m so scared I will go to he’ll cuz I blasphemed the HS :(

      • Anthony said

        I don’t think you’ve blasphemed the Holy Spirit. Everyone says and does bad things because of their emotions. Peter denied Jesus three times.

        You have to repent of that sin but I don’t think it’s the unforgivable one. Remember the Pharisees knew who Jesus was and took the calculated step of calling Him Satan for their own gain and to get at Jesus, not as the result of anger.

        You have done wrong though, so confess and repent of your sin, never go back to it and move on with the Lord. He loves you.

  41. SavedbyGraceAlone said

    As a child I struggled with this – I was sure I had committed the unforgivable sin and the verse tormented me. As an adult it happened again, i was afraid the thoughts in my head may one day accidentally slip out of my mouth in a moment of anger or weakness. What comforts me now is knowing that God is not the author of confusion! What does the verse truly mean, I do not know-obviously do not sin against the Holy Spirit but it is way deeper than just being highly susceptible to suggestion or losing control in a weak moment. Go on YouTube, John Piper has a good answer those who are afraid they have grieved the Holy Spirit.

  42. Erica said

    At a point in my life I considered my self really spiritual and didn’t curse, so Because I didn’t curse, when people ticked me off I would just tell them I would curse them out in tongues. It was a joke but also a way of me saying don’t mess with me, even though I can’t curse I will snap on you. However I didn’t literally mean curse. Is that blasphemy?

  43. silver said

    I have prayed and read on this subject. I kknew I didn’t want to do this as soon as I firgured out that there is this sin. I hated it and set my mind not to do as well as not using the Lord’s name in vain, but while I was reading the bible one day, because I was trying to use scripture to defeat these fits of depression that were brand new to me, I came across the blaspheme the holy spirit scripture again and a horrible thought came to my mind. I can’t remember anything leading up to that thought or the thought after only this horrid feeling in the pit of my stomach. I’ve gone back and forth since then and it has been about 4 years. If anyone reads this, I didn’t want/don’t want and never to commit this sin. I believe it takes a lot more to do so, but this feeling keeps coming back. I have prayed for it to go away, gotten closer to God, continued with my bible reading and sharing scriptures, but many times I feel like a liar because of this condemning feeling I get here and there. it lasted for most of my college years, anxiety and nervousness sadness and just heavy sorrow. I use those words not lightly. If it is true that having that worrying feeling is evidence that The Holy Spirit is with me, as I want it to be, then why do I still have it? My parents, my dad just cuts me off mid sentence as usually and says his peace about it and my mom she doesn’t fully understand. I haven’t found a church home yet, and the churches I visit many people say the same thing. I believe Jesus loves me and that I came to him far before all of this happened. Before the depression bio polar diagnosis (this is really the only thing I get emotional about anyway) before college and before highschool ended. I’m sorry for writing this long whatever this could be called. It is just it is happening again, the worrying thoughts. Now. I haven’t any one person I can explain fully and I don’t fully understand why my brain dwells on this, but this I care very much about where my soul is going when I die. When the day of judgement comes and we all must answer for our sins…I want to be with Jesus. There are other things about me that seem to fit right in with being a stupid failure but I had Jesus and now I feel like I am so stupid that I even failed having faith. I second guess everything that I do and don’t do. Like I am invited to one of the churches that I visit for holy communion and I want to go and gain some word and be in my father’s house, but I also don’t want to go because I don’t want to experience that condenmed feeling in church…again. I feel alone, I feel like my case is different than perhaps many if not all of the other people who may struggle with this. But I try to keep clinging to Jesus the only way I know how, with prayer and reading scripture, and really putting the scriptures to what I say my actions and behavior. It is so back and forth and I am only 25, I might have many more years on this earth, Lord willing, I can’t live with this. I know I am a sinner, but I asked Jesus to come into my heart and I do again and again, I love that I made that choice, that God put me in a place to want to do that. Why did all of that happen if it was going to end lie this? I guess I just don’t know what to do I feel lost and alone. I’m sorry again for the long post; my mind is not the clearest right now.

    • GMC said

      Hi Silver, the world really doesn’t make any sense any more. Actually I am the same age as you and have felt roughly the same for a while. But to be honest I really it is just the day and age we live in. Like if it says to be called to seperate from the world and you actually do that u end up living in social isolation. I can think to myself many times this is a joke I have always had anxieties about somethings at this level, the same kind feelings which influence my decisions. But I mean where is the joy these days, that’s how I feel. It just seems a process, time is going quickly anyway, but I just guess we have to persevere to the end no matter what kind of condition we end up in. I used to be a fit cross country runner even a a regional level in England. Sometimes I look back those days what I can actually remember and just think did I even dream it. There is virtually no connection to the lost world of where we were from. The 90’s and even early 00’s were a completely different world. It just doesn’t make sense but the only thing that does is the word of God and then if u actually stand on that as a foundation then if u really actually do it u will encounter all of the above things that u mentioned. I guess you have been through it as well. Yeah I mean I get the hypocrasy of most of the churches. I mean God does say that even in these days there will be no knowledge of God in the land. And if it is the end of days which I believe it to be then these events globally are in His hands. Have you seen the youtube videos on the net n these subjects, I’m not weird or anything but I mean all that stuff has come to pass and is coming to pass, regardless. So the rate a day goes by it seems like well u know. It is going fast. So just don’t give up I guess. It is a primarily joyless world because of the people who had a choice and they chose to be bad it’s as simple as that. How can you correlate with this atheistic world that champions science as the beacon of all reason and has no faith. The people as described as lacking natural afffection (presumeably joy or something similar) so how can anyone relate to these people. What unity can light have with darkness. But it’s just a matter of waiting. I more or less reached that conclusion in 2005 when I started to read certain subjects. And Babylon has been de-mystified so I’m just waiting for it to collaspe meantime everyone else is seemingly unaware. Don’t know where to begin with it really but I guess u feel similar. Anyway if u want facebook email me I’m not weird or anything, but I do feel at times a shadow of my former self. It does say the meek shall inherit the earth. When you truly feel sad about the state of this world, they are so few people that actually even get that. I barely wonder if it’s worth descibing to people because all anyone will try and do is medicate you. I suppose it is about knowledge and at the end of the day ignorance is bliss. But knowledge makes a man or indeed a woman for that matter not fit to be a slave in my opinion. This is with regard to worldy systems rather then Christ. I hope u are ok and well anyway. Look for example I used to be really quite good looking but I am 25 and some days I just feel like a grandad. It’s weird no doubt. At the end of the day the Word God says that at one point in the past in time, God was so angry he destroyed virtually everything in the world because it was evil and everything was given over to wicknedness or cold heartedness. And there are people who smile with evil intent. So I mean the problem is with the world. I have tried also to change it, but I mean look at these people, really. All the stuff going on now and still no-one says maybe this happening because of so and so. It’s like they can’t be reasoned with. And the scripture says there will come a day and age on the earth when mankind will not even tolerate sound doctrine. So well there it is anyway.

      • silver said

        Thanks for replying. Yes I do see what the scriptures say coming to pass more and more. However people who take the time out of their day to reply to a person who is having some trouble, shows that there is still great champions of Christ out there. Thanks again and God bless you.

      This, and other posts like it, is hard to respond to. Not because I don’t think you’ve committed the unforgivable sin but because I think it’ll be hard to show you that you haven’t.

      What you’re suffering from is not the conviction of the Holy Spirit, but really heavy condemnation and we know who the accuser is.

      Years ago, without any forethought, the idea that I want to go to hell popped into my head. I’ve thought terrible things about Jesus and God and the people of God. I don’t believe anyone who has posted to this page (including me) has committed the unforgivable sin.

      We all think terrible things about God. It’s one of the main weapons of the enemy. We are instructed to take every thought captive.

      When bad thoughts assail me, I thank God and praise Him that He allowed it so that I can focus my attention on Him. I then spend time praising and worshiping God. Because it’s counter-productive, the enemy stops using bad thoughts to attack me.

      So don’t feel condemned. That’s not of God. Conviction which leads to repentance is of God. Condemnation which makes you feel isolated from God isn’t. Don’t second guess yourself. Just trust in Him. He is faithful and just. Confess your sins, repent of them and Jesus will forgive you.

      When the doubts come, submit yourself to God and resist the Devil. You’ll find the doubts and thoughts will start coming less and less.

      Don’t think you’re alone in feeling this way. Even Paul the Apostle said he did the things he ought not to do. We all sin. We all need to ask for, and receive, forgiveness. And I, too, often feel alone in church.

      Ask The Lord to show you His love for you and ask Him to bring to mind the things you have done that have grieved Him. And make a list. Then repent of each item on that list.

      If you were beyond forgiveness, you wouldn’t be able to get close to Jesus. The fact that you can means you are still saved.

      Praise The Lord for that. And do what I’ve suggested. You’ll feel better. Ask the Lord to bring a like minded person into your life to strengthen you.

      The Lord bless you richly.

        You’re right. I guess there are some moments where I just let those doubts get to me. I’m quite embarrassed really, but agreed I have done what you suggested and will wait on the Lord. Thanks Anthony, it really means a lot. God bless.

      Ephesians 6:10-18

      Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

      11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

      12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

      13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

      14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

      15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

      16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

      17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

      18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

    I hope everyone is doing ok. Not Long guys, and we will be with the Lord. I myself have been going through this, i posted above. I am trying hard to understand why this is happening to so many people that love Jesus. its not happening to people that Dont love jesus! Sooo, Whats this all mean. We should praise the lord in are affliction. Praise the True living God. We have been blessed to have been called to know the truth, and the spirit has testified of it. Thats how we know and believe with out a doubt Jesus is alive and true. Be humble and wait on him. Pray for each other in are affliction. it says we wont be put to shame with our faith and belief in Christ.

      Ephesians 6:10-18
      This is the scripture in God’s word regarding spiritual battles and put on the full armor of God in prayer.

    At a point in my life I considered my self really spiritual and didn’t curse, so Because I didn’t curse, when people ticked me off I would just tell them I would curse them out in tongues. It was a joke but also a way of me saying don’t mess with me, even though I can’t curse I will snap on you. However I didn’t literally mean curse. Is that blasphemy?

    • Anthony said

      Excellent idea. Though time zone differences might make it difficult. I’m on BST which is GMT+1. Instead, I can pray for people between 5 and 6 today, but I can’t be online at the time.

    • Anthony said

      No, I don’t think so.

      Christians can curse people. Jesus cursed the fig tree though it was representative of something else. And cursing someone in tongues isn’t possible, in a way. You have no idea what you’re saying and it is the Holy Spirit that is leading you. He teaches you to pray properly.

      After all of that is said and done, Christians should only curse if it is the specific will of God. We should bless people, even if, especially if, they tick us off!

    • charles said

      This fear of blasphemy aginst the holy is serious. I too read the word and feared that I might of said something with out knowing. Let me tell you this. It could be an attack on your mind. And it will cause you to sin if you let it work you over. I have fallen hard and sinned because of this fear. Started to drink the fear away could not sleep and brought great torment to my life. I pray that we never committed this sin and if it was done it was out of ignorance and not with belief in God. I never knew there was a real God. So how know what kind of things I said in my unbelief and ignorance. I still fear but its in Gods hands

    • silver said

      Staying in prayer is a good thing. God knows the hearts of his creations. If you had a heart that was fine with insulting God or his son, then you wouldn’t be feeling this way. A person who wants to insult God and turn away from his word and the Holy Spirit, would do so and not have a problem with it. You do not think that Jesus did any of his signs by some power of evil, and you don’t want to. You want to have peace and salvation and know Jesus is the way, that’s a sign of the Holy Spirit working within you. Stay in prayer friend, the devil won’t win.

      • Anthony said

        Silver is mostly right on the money, though I’m sure the word says Esau did not find a place of repentance though he sought it with tears.

        The thing to do is seek the Lord. Don’t be fooled by condemnation because that doesn’t come from the Holy Spirit.

        As Silver said, you don’t think that Jesus operated by the power of Satan, so ask Jesus for His peace. Perfect love, coming from Jesus, casts out all fear.

        Ask the Lord to show you the things in your life you must repent of. Make a list. And then go through the list, praying and asking forgiveness for and repenting of each one, by the time you’re done, you’ll be so much closer to God you’ll wonder what you were ever afraid of!

      • charles said

        I’m still afraid. I was under this attack to. and it caused me to drink and commit sin. now i wonder if God has hardened my heart and taking his gift of repentance away. Please pray for me my name is charles and i believe. I hope he can and will help me i dont want to burn in hell with the devil. please pray for me if you read this. God forgive me and take me back i’m sorry for my weakness

      • Anthony said

        You believe! Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Have you made a confession of faith? That you believe Jesus is Lord? Have you been to church? If you’re anything like me and Silver, the feelings of condemnation will hit you like you won’t believe when you’re in church!

        I will pray for you, my brother, but pray for me too! I need it every bit as much as you do!

        If you have sinned, and we all do, wilful or not, then you must repent. He is faithful and just and will forgive you your sins when you ask Him. Committing the unforgivable sin isn’t a case of thinking terrible things about the Holy Spirit. I’ve been told it’s a real resistance, a real opposing, of the redemptive work of the Holy Spirit. I’ve read that the unforgivable sin is not accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour while you are alive and have the chance. I believe, though, that it’s knowing for definite that something is of God and yet deliberately saying it’s of Satan. Now, this isn’t just a simple mistake, or something said in the heat of the moment, or something said in weakness. It’s a very deliberate thing, The Pharisees did it. You haven’t.

        So, ask Jesus, tonight, to show you the way. You won’t feel like praying, but do it anyway. He might not straight away. The Lord’s ways aren’t ours. But ask Him. And make that list. Repent of everything the Lord brings to mind.

        You’ll feel better and closer to God!

    Hey, what if we all come to this site at the same time one day and pray for each other. The bible does say, where two or more are gathered in my name, there will I be also. Huh?

    • Anthony said

      Weird. Left a reply for you but it attached to Erica’s post!

      Do people not read anything that has been said on this page before?

      Maybe you should read the above where people have said things very similar?

    Oh my goodness, I am so glad that this topic was posted. I woke up this morning with the worst thoughts in my head. Like cursing God. I dont curse so to have this thought in my mind was like horrific. I had to google “can someone think curse words against God and really be saved. I have no idea where the thoughts came from. I see that I am not the only one that has had such thoughts happen. Not mad at God or anything like that. I was questioning my salvation and feel so much grief.
    Thankful this was there

    • Irene Anne Peter said

      Hi, Irene here. I’ve been facing the same problem about 5 years ago. It all started when I started using swear words like the f word upon Jesus and God. I felt horrible but I just ignored it. The real problem started when I was 11 and I heard this thing from my teacher..”God will forgive you even if you speak against Him or Jesus but speaking against the Holy Spirit shall never be forgiven”. I got really horrified and got really worked up about it, although I never spoke or thought against Him. Unfortunately, just a month ago, I got so worked up and scared of it and…I spoke a swear word upon Him! I immediately burst into tears, thinking that God will never forgive me. I spent a whole week, crying and finding for solutions on the Net on this particular sin. I was actually relieved when I got to know from one of the articles that if I’m scared I’ve committed it, then I haven’t. Sadly, that relief didn’t last long. I got worked up again and cried…No one in my family knows about this, and at one point I couldn’t take it any longer and I cried my 14-year-old heart out to my parents and they brought me to a priest. The priest explained to me about this sin and that’s when I got to know that this sin is telling something is the work of the devil when you knew it’s the work of God and rejecting Him out of your life. I was relieved, again, but not 100%. Then, I went home, and being in a tropical country like Malaysia, it has not been raining for more than 2 months and suddenly it rained, my first impression was “Hail the Lord! It’s RAINING!!!” and about 5 seconds later, I heard a voice, that sounded so like me, and unusually so intentionally insulting said “This is the work of the devil.” Like, the heck?!?! I usually receive insulting voices from the back of my head about God and they sound so unintentional and this time, I felt like I denied the Holy Spirit by myself! I feel so hopeless and when I realized I was so wrong about this, I felt “I did something REALLY wrong, this time for real!!!”, I felt like God will NEVER forgive me for what I’ve done but I know I am wrong and feel damn guilty and regretful about it. I’ve said this thing for maybe a thousand times daily..”God, please forgive me, for I’ve sinned against You. Please accept me as Your Child. I can’t live a second without You and I want to be with You for eternity in heaven…I’ve REPENTED!!!!!!” I felt so horrible for myself for I’ve been acting like the Pharisees, and I can come to a conclusion that the more I get to know about something wrong and after the moment I’m relieved for I know I didn’t do it, I’ll do/think/behave WHATEVER it’s written or said (criteria) to commit that something i don’t really want to do. Deep in my heart all I really wanted to do is run to Jesus and fall to His feet for my wrongdoings and cry my heart to God, hug Him tightly, give Him a kiss on the cheek like a daughter’s to her father and scream “Have mercy on me, the sinner!! I love You with all of my heart and I believe in You and believe me, although I may have DAMN insulting thoughts about You, my love will still remain the same till the very end….” I am really sorry for this post being extremely long and anyone who managed to read up to this point really deserves a hands off! May God pour the most of His Blessings upon you and I hope there is a solution to this problem…

      • Anthony said

        You really haven’t committed the unforgivable sin. What the Pharisees did was a calculated denial of God by claiming the work He was doing was the devil. It wasn’t a simple thought that popped into their heads, it was thought out and planned.

        They knew who Jesus was because of the miracles He performed. They knew He is the Messiah. And yet they deliberately called something and someone they 100% knew to be of God the devil and that cannot be forgiven.

        It’s not a curse word against God. It’s not a simple “praise God – it’s of the devil”. It’s calculated. You have to plan to do it. We all have terrible thoughts about God. It’s our fallen nature. We’re sinful. Or sinful hearts rebel. But to set out to call something Godly the devil for your own gain is unforgivable in God’s eyes.

        You haven’t committed any such sin. You may have sinned, don’t get me wrong, but your sin is forgivable if you confess it to God and repent.

    I’m afraid that I thought evil stuff about Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God. I’m scared that I’m gonna go to Hell. I thought bad stuff against Holy Spirit
    I thought so much evil stuff about it that I feel condemned to hell. I have trouble controlling my thoughts. I really want God back in my life, but feel like I’m damned forever. I can’t stop my evil thoughts, I prayed to God that I’m sorry but I can no longer feel the Holy Ghost with me. I am worried about going to Hell. I also willfully sinned against God so many times that I feel like I’m doomed. I don’t know what to do anymore.

      Listen…
      I have been in the same thing you are In and I am now
      I would cry and be depressed and even lost weight….
      Some Christians fear so much of doing this that they end up doing it
      If you want to go back to God
      My opinion is to get on your knees and tell him what you been going through that all you want to do is follow him but you need help overcoming this and he will help you
