“Firstly, Thank you so much for what you’re doing sir. You and Nabeel Qureshi have had a really great impact on my life.
Question :
1.What is ‘eternal sin’? Mark 3:29… How do you sin against the Holy Spirit?
2. Why should we accept the Bible as our moral standard? What makes it unique?”

I have all my life believed the complete WORD of GOD is true. Am I wrong? 2 Timothy 3:16-17

It’s literally blaspheming (speaking) against the Spirit, not merely “resisting” the Spirit or whatever.

The passage in Mark tells us why Jesus said that stuff about blasphemy against the Holy Spirit :
“Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
Because they SAID, He hath an unclean spirit.”

Here’s a cross reference from Matthew and Luke that supports it: “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.” “And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.”

But I don’t necessarily think that someone saying a Christian has an “unclean spirit” or general blasphemy/blasphemy against God in general is necessarily blaspheming against the Spirit if the person didn’t know anything about the Spirit when they said that and they’re not directly blaspheming specifically against the Spirit.

I believe it’s when people are aware and consciously blaspheming specifically against the Holy Spirit is when it’s unforgivable. Like if someone accidentally insulted your loved one or not fully knowing/indirectly they insulted your loved one, then it is forgivable, but when someone literally consciously knowingly insults your loved one specifically is when there is offense. The blasphemers knew they were blaspheming against God’s Spirit. See the people’s remarks: “And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?” Even though these people were common people and not “learned” (like the religious leaders) it was so clear what’s going on even the common people (Jews) attribute this to God… (Son of David, the Messiah)…so how much more is this clear to the “learned” people?
(They have no excuse, see even one of their own: Nicodemus’s reaction to Jesus’ miracles in John. Jesus wasn’t some heretical preacher doing miracles, especially when He’s also using Scripture and common sense to back Him up.)

Also, with regards to “learned”, Jesus pointed out: “And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.” (Rhetorical question from Jesus, and they knew the answer being religious leaders and who were not unfamiliar with the words and works of Jesus.) They knowingly and intentionally were speaking a word against both Jesus and the Spirit by which He did that miracle.

Plus, they were hardened against God (refusing to acknowledge the truth despite many signs, miracles, scriptural proofs pointing to the truth), which means:
A) This is not an ignorant act by an ignorant person.
B) This isn’t even an intentional act by an ignorant person.
C) The blasphemy is definitely intentional and specific against the Spirit through which Jesus had done the miracles in.

God bless

That guys just giving the same answer as they all do that doesn’t even satisfy my understanding.

The audio is very shoddy when the guy in the back answers. Can’t understand him.

Appreciate the interpretation about blasphemying the Holy Spirit

I truly miss Nabeel

I have been reading through the New Testament and was wondering again this morning what constitutes blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. This video was the first option when replying to something else.

Thank you for helping me get a better understanding :slight_smile:

So any religion after Jesus such as Mormon Islam copied from Christian but any paganism that before Jesus were done by Satan! So putting Jesus in Godhead can be also done by Satan also! Why use double standard? ???

Such an important topic. A pity that I couldn’t make out what the “theologian” was saying.

Great video. And how sweet to see Nabeel.

Who is the gentleman in the back seat who took the 1st question, and what role does he have (if any) with your ministry? TIA

The Holy Bible says what it is, very straightforward: it is simply speaking against the Holy Spirit. It then references a time, where people accused Jesus Christ of casting out demons, by the spirit of beelzebub; they blasphemed the Holy Spirit, by saying that the spirit was an evil spirit.

Read Mark 28-30. It makes it extremely straightforward.

The Holy Bible isn’t a code book, where everything is hard to decipher; everything we need to know is in the Holy Bible

I like the idea of using the 10 commandments as a basic moral standard.
But morals have to grow within the individual as should manners, and latter ones are not exactly up to date in the bible.

how fucked up is America when guys like psychopath David Wood and low iq nabel qureshi explain christianity to them?jesus christ?where are you to shut their mouths?

“resist and” blasphemy" do not have a synonymous definition.

Here’s a passage that addresses something similar to this topic.

Hebrews 6:4-6
4 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.

Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is a spiritual condition. Your connection to God and to Christ is through the Holy Spirit. If you break that lifeline, you’re screwed. You’ll never find your way.

While you are living in the physical world, it is mostly impossible to sever the connection. However through sin addiction, you can setup the circumstances for it after you die.

the man in red t shirt, pls speak slowly and closer to microphone if any?
i am just a girl from Indonesia not from.Epanema :slight_smile: :smiley:
just a kind suggestion for next video :slight_smile:
thank u :slight_smile:

I wish I had friends like this. Whenever I talk about GOD, it quickly becomes a one sided conversation. It’s as if the person I am talking to, has never opened a Bible before. Actually, that tends to be the case. Blah…
