Mark 3.29 - The unforgiven

395 posts in this topic

Mark 3.29 - He who blasphems against the holy spirit, never has forgiviness and is guilty of eternal sin

( source...my bible.....lol)

Jesus said himself - ALL sins can be forgiven... so it looks more of a contradiction when Mark 3.29 says likewise as not all can be forgiven..............the word ALL means -> ALL ...

Jesus even forgave those who denied he was the son of god when he was stationed on the cross - forgive them father they know not what they do

So..............if you believe this is true...and from what it sounds...it is like the biggest sin of all, especially when it says it is not forgiven...

So my question is short and to the point --> Does this mean, all murderers, theives, rapists ect can be forgiven ...and non believers cannot?

Mark.3.29 : But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin.

To them it makes sense, since the Holy Spirit is the source of forgiveness

Even the all loving all forgiving Holy Spirit can't do anything because its deemed an eternal sin

Who made that distinction though is very much up to debate because here it's quite clear it's not the Holy Spirit

I think it means the Jewish/Christian God has the biggest ego in the neighborhood.

Jesus said - ALL sins can be forgiven....

I know that is also in the bible ...

So Jesus says - ALL sins can be forgiven... and yet Mark 3.29 contradicts jesus

the subject of the passage is those who have denied Christ. The Scribes& Pharasies have condemned Jesus for healing the sick on their Sabbath, which is forbidden to do.As such they ssy "He is Satan! He does what He wil on the Sabbath".

So desperate to prove Jesus as the Christ they denied Him.

3:28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. inj1.gifint.gifcontra1.gif

"He that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness."

Jesus becomes angry at those who said that he had "an unclean spirit," so he announces the unforgivable sin: "blasphemy against the Holy Ghost."

Is there an unforgivable sin?

I deny the existence of the Holy Spirit 3:30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

Jesus said all sins can be forgiven

Also...when jesus was on the cross...put there by many jews who claimed he was not the son of god, accussing him of - blasphemy...( when asked by Pontius Pilate who shall go free?) ..........jesus said - forgive them father they know not what they do

I guess that puts the lid on the pot mom

Knows not what they do

blaspheming means they knew but do they know it's the eternal one ?

the one of no forgiveness ?

I think JC said that HE can forgive all sins,

the apostles have to approve it first

*edit* sleepy

All sins mean ALL every last one...... so Jesus said ALL sins can be forgiven...then Mark 2.29 is a heck of a contradiction...

and when he says - they know not what they do... they did deny him as god... pretty much like what non belivers do... I see no difference... yet mark 3.29 says likewise

Hi BM,

This is from John Paul II explaining blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, however I do feel at the moment of death repentance may occur in one's own thoughts and I'm sure the good Lord in his Divine Mercy will hear that plea.

John Paul II, Dominum et Vivificantem 46:

Why is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit unforgivable? How should this blasphemy be understood? Saint Thomas Aquinas replies that it is a question of a sin that is "unforgivable by its very nature", insofar as it excludes the elements through which the forgiveness of sin takes place.

According to such an exegesis, "blasphemy" does not properly consist in offending against the Holy Spirit in words; it consists rather in the refusal to accept the salvation which God offers to man through the Holy Spirit, working through the power of the Cross. If man rejects the "convincing concerning sin" which comes from the Holy Spirit and which has the power to save, he also rejects the "coming" of the Counselor—that "coming" which was accomplished in the Paschal Mystery, in union with the redemptive power of Christ's Blood: the Blood which "purifies the conscience from dead works".

We know that the result of such a purification is the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, whoever rejects the Spirit and the Blood remains in "dead works", in sin. And the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit consists precisely in the radical refusal to accept this forgiveness of which he is the intimate giver and which presupposes the genuine conversion which he brings about in the conscience. If Jesus says that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven either in this life or in the next, it is because this "non-forgiveness" is linked, as to its cause, to "non-repentance", in other words to the radical refusal to be converted. This means the refusal to come to the sources of Redemption, which nevertheless remain "always" open in the economy of salvation in which the mission of the Holy Spirit is accomplished. The Spirit has infinite power to draw from these sources: "he will take what is mine", Jesus said. In this way he brings to completion in human souls the work of the Redemption accomplished by Christ, and distributes its fruits. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, then, is the sin committed by the person who claims to have a "right" to persist in evil—in any sin at all—and who thus rejects Redemption. One closes oneself up in sin, thus making impossible one's conversion, and consequently the remission of sins, which one considers not essential or not important for one's life. This is a state of spiritual ruin, because blasphemy against the Holy Spirit does not allow one to escape from one's self-imposed imprisonment and open oneself to the divine sources of the purification of consciences and of the remission of sins."

on its own mark 3.29 reads as a contradiction

in the context of what is before and after it is not as alphafemale pointed out

: against the Holy Ghost / against is the pivot here

those who said that he had "an unclean spirit,"

as in accuse, so "deny" probably is not an entirely accurate definition of blaspheme here

Accuse the Holy Ghost as satan

Accuse the Holy Ghost as someones uncle

same thing

so saying God isn't God isn't inclusive in the "eternal sin" folder

I'll have to ask my sister but then,

she'll probably go flipping through the bible and quotes the same quotes again .. so ... :lol:

that's the best I know mom, sorry

I already know what the chapter is about...I was once christian............still have a bible and I have not forgotten how to read it LOL ...........The people at the time beofre he was stationed on the cross were taunting him denying him as god and believed he was possessed....they accussed jesus of blasphemy...

But see you have not shown how it is not a contradiction............it does mean anyone who denies him as god and accusses him of being pocessed....( talk about start as you mean to go on, many christians have done this to so many people over decades lol) .....fact is....... it is still a sin that is said never can be forgiven...and it contradicts the words by Jesus himself that says - ALL sins can be forgiven

You can twist and turn it sideways ...swish it around over and over... you still cannot shake the contradiction

I apologise if my post smell of insulting your knowledge of the chapter, was not intentional,

was sleepy but that is a poor excuse, please forgive :D

I agree its contradictory but just not to the degree that it contradicts everything

kinda like saying "I love cheesecake but I cant stand cheese" :lol:

"You can twist and turn it sideways ...swish it around over and over... you still cannot shake the contradiction"

No I can't nor do I dare to attempt it else all I get is something of a foamy contradiction :unsure2::P

No you have not insulted me...I am not one of these that cry - ATTACK..YOU'RE ATTACKING MY BELIEFS... kind of folk lol :lol:

I didn't say it contradicts everything......I said it does however contradicts the words of Jesus in ref to sins and forgiviness <-- that is the entire point

More context trains could well arrive in the station shortly lol

it's how the weight of the sin is leveled isn't it ?

that "judge not lest ye be judged" "cast the first stone"

sometimes it's a big no no, other times it's "I cast ye to hell" "damnation is thy reward"

it's not a tourist guide map to heaven,

I believe JC is open for discussion with open hearts,

that's why many loves the fella,

the apostles are a wee bit over protective at times but then a lot of the flock were being tossed to lions for fun,

maybe they were traumatised

Well my other sister who is a Muslim and my Muslim friends says that there are different levels of sins

there are sins that one can be atoned for by prayers or redemption and sins that is "eternal" I guess

JC just said I'll deal with them, just come to me, say my name

and more importantly, this many neglects to add, don't do them no more :lol:

Sin is still sin...and when jesus says ALL sins <-- he means all of them even if you like to level them out lol...it don't matter..........Mark 3.29 contradicts JC's words on sin and forgiviness

I hear ya mom, Mark probably got tired of the other christians saying JC wasn't God like he said and got ... well ... furious :lol:

So he tossed in an eternal sin for blaspheme just so no one will "accuse" and "deny" anymore

Hang on let me try and give my context twist to it all....

Look Mark was a lonely chap........got taken into heaven and saw a - run for saviour competition...so he enters the competition...and loses to Jesus...

Jesus get to call the shots...poor Mark gets to write all down.............so Mark gets wind of Jesus aying - all sins can be forgiven...and he thinks - RIGHT that does it, I am sick of him calling the shots...wellllllll I have news for them all - BAM 3.29 is written... take that JC cheat me out of a saviour competition will ya?

wow ! :blink:

I think JC won that competition close to a hundred years before Mark learned to write

Some say about seventy some say over , they don't know :lol:

Don't think JC needed to cheat though since his mom Mary already got that wrapped up even before baby Jesus was born :D

Two questions leap out, BM:

1- Where does Jesus say that ALL sins can be forgiven? Except for Mark 3 (and the parallel account in Matthew), I don't think Jesus does. But since both Mark 3 and its parallel in Matthew pretty much say "all sins can be forgiven except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit", I can't see how that is a contradiction - it's like me saying "all my students are going on an excursion, except for little Johnny, since he was naughty".

2- What is your understanding of "blasphemy of the Holy Spirit"? How does one go about achieving this unpardonable feat?
