The article below is a Usenet post. It shows the ignorance of Christian religious zealots regarding the “unpardonable sin.” It defines the unpardonable sin according to the doctrine of Jesus. It explains who is committing the unpardonable sin and what actions constitute this form of blasphemy.
There is only one unpardonable sin–unbelief. All other sins and blasphemies are washed away by the regeneration of the Spirit. This thread demonstrates how to expose the ignorance of self-appointed Christian teachers who mangle the scripture.

“… purify your hearts, ye double minded.”
“A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
Let us count the ways and purify our hearts of all unclean doctrine.
You have said that unbelief is forgivable, unless the person physically
dies in that state. You have said that the blasphemy against the Holy
Spirit is unforgivable.
You have not defined exactly what actions constitute the “blasphemy
against the Holy Spirit.” You have not shown who is committing this
unpardonable sin. How do you define this sin? Who is committing this sin?
In the scripture that you quoted above you omitted the verses in which
Jesus defines exactly what the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit means
and who is guilty of it. Jesus defined it as the rank unbelief and
posturing of those professing belief in God, and speaking idle
words–idle words being professing contrary to the scripture–and
enslaving men with religion. He says the words of the religious
institution will be weighed against them in the day of judgment. That
happened. Between 66-70 anno domini their entire religious system was
razed and burned to the ground by Roman invaders. What Judea had done
(legalized a system of unbelief) was unpardonable. Judea was not
forgiven by God, but rather destroyed by Roman agents of God’s wrath.
Offenses will come, but woe unto those by whom they come. So Rome is not
off the hook for what she did to Judea. Rome and her church daughters
have magnified the iniquity of Judea up until this very day.
Your statement about repenting before physical death is a repetition
of popular Christian myth about salvation but it misses the point being
made by the scripture–that religion and religious hierarchy is
unbelief, and a bar to forgiveness.
Jesus is not setting aside a singular act and calling that, “the
unpardonable sin.” He is exposing a system of thought that is the
unpardonable sin, and explaining the curse upon those who subscribe to
and wage war in the name of that system. Remember it is written that
the, “Kingdom … suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force
…” and, “Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of
knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in
So now that we see that Jesus defined the blasphemy against the Holy
Spirit as the rank unbelief of the religious leaders, which leads them
to drive the sheep away from the true Shepherd, you have marked out a
doctrine that is double-minded, lacking a full understanding.
You have to have an eye single to God’s glory. As soon as you prop up a
religious leader, a creedo, or a “church father” as your guide in
doctrine, you are being double-minded instead of single-minded. We have
the law and the prophets as a light to our path and a lamp to our
feet–not the commentaries of religious leaders or the swelling oratory
of some “great preacher.”
To merely believe on Jesus Christ as the Lamb is the washing of the word
which cleanses away the stain of all sin. Ergo, to believe on something
other than Christ (unbelief) is to remain stained. Church leaders want
you to believe on religion. They want you to believe in the Church as
the means of salvation. This is worshiping the creation above the
Creator. That is unbelief–the unpardonable unbelief of the rulers over
Judea, a sin now infecting the current religious system. The moment you
believe only on Jesus, you are freed from all religion, all authority
and power of religious leaders. “Ye shall know the truth and the truth
shall make you free.”
The moment you believe that Jesus took away your sins you are no longer
concluded in unbelief, but are instead the recipient of mercy, for then
you have no sin laid to your account. But if you believe in religion and
foist that religion upon others as necessary to salvation then every
idle word you speak will be weighed in judgment against you.
That’s why the religious charlatans and false teachers are called a
brood of vipers and spawn of Satan. They are the embodiment of unbelief.
“For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy
All men are concluded under unbelief, having partaken of the false
religious systems of the world, being blinded by these religious insane
asylums, having no hope of forgiveness, except through Christ Jesus. Yet
Jesus already took away the sins of the world. Whether or not you
believe is not up to you, but up to the Father.
“No man cometh unto me except the Father draw him…”
And the Father devised a plan to allow the devil to “baffle with
bullshit” the whole world through religion, so that the Father would not
have to play favorites, or allow anyone the right to boast, when he
unleashes the final act in his plan to raise the dead to life.
It is God (not the Church) who is working salvation through His Son.
Religious systems have nothing to do with this except as the stumbling
block we all must trip over on the way to the Risen Lord. These
religious systems are abominable counterfeits for the peaceable kingdom
of our Lord and their usurpation of the matter is unpardonable blasphemy.
The New Covenant is the release of the children of Israel from that
system of unpardonable sin. Revelation is calling us to flee from the
Churches and trust solely in Jesus Christ as the propitiation for our
sins. The churches try to draw us away from Jesus and to their religion.
That is the same “scattering the flock” the Scribes and Pharisees were
doing, which is part and parcel of unbelief.
No doubt you thought you were teaching something about the Lord. But I
already have his word:
“But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of
Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their
inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and
they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his
neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they
shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them,
saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember
their sin no more.”
Those of us who have entered the New Covenant have no need of a
religious leader or religious whore house to tell us to know the Lord.
We have left the old covenant whore house and been set free from
iniquity. We are free from the bondage of the Pharisees, the Priests,
the Ecumenical councils, the tax-exempt donation mills, the pew-warmer
mausoleums– an unpardonable system of spiritual slavery preserved and
propagated by the Church harlot. Because she is unforgivable, and her
sin cannot be washed away, the whore of Babylon burns.
It happened long ago and it will happen again. “There is no new thing
under the sun …”
You have said that unbelief is forgivable, unless the person physically
dies in that state. But Jesus is not talking about the individual. He is
talking about the collective system in regards to this unpardonable sin.
You have said that the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is
unforgivable. This is true. But who is committing this unpardonable
blasphemy? Answer: the Church. Babylon persists in her unpardonable
blasphemy and unbelief, and she will die in that state. The harlot will
be thrown down forcefully, so the sheep be scattered into sectarian
divisions no more.
Then the sheep will have One Shepherd and be one flock, all drinking one
spiritual drink and eating one spiritual bread.
Peace be to you. I pray you will avoid the spiritual bondage of church
doctrine and rely solely upon the scripture and the Holy Spirit as your
guide and instructor for all doctrine. We must be ruthlessly
single-minded about the faith to avoid the traumatic terrors of the
harlot and her religious lies.
