Many have taught that there is a sin that is unforgiveable. We read this word, “Unforgiveable” and we begin to think of a person being tortured endlessly. We believed this, because this is what we were told by people who seemed to know the things of God.
I often ask people if God and His Christ would want his servants and children to forgive, or to have a limit to their forgiveness. These people, who believe the God and Creator of all has a “LIMIT” to who, and what God will forgive , will curiously answer that there should never be an end to a person’s forgiveness. This seems to fly in the face of the idea that there is one thing that God will punish you endlessly for. Most Christians believe we are ALWAYS supposed to forgive people of their trespass. In fact, we are instructed to pray this, with the understanding that we will be forgiven for our sins with the very same measure we forgive others of theirs.
In “The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant” Peter questions if seven times was enough? Jesus made it clear, there really should be no end to your forgiveness.
Matthew 18: 21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
And yet, in two of the Gospels we are presented with a scenario where God will not forgive. To the Religious it then seems to follow, that means, endless Torture awaits.
However, this simple passage in scripture is simple enough to explain, if you no longer fall victim to the YEAST of the Pharisees. (Yeast = Egotistical Prideful hateful Ideas found within their religious teachings).
This is something Jesus warns against ironically in Luke Chapter 12.
12 Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: “Be[a] on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 3 What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.
Jesus is basically saying, what they have been ignorantly taught the Light of God’s Truth will reveal, and this truth will soon be heard everywhere. He then went on to remind them they should NOT to focus on physical or temporal punishments, but spiritual ones.
4 “I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.
Now this seems to be a bit of a mystery. Because on one hand you hear Jesus telling people they should FEAR the ONE who has power to through you into HELL, not those who would want to kill you. However, a moment later Jesus then says, YOU ARE OF GREAT VALUE to God and that you should NOT BE AFRAID, because even the hairs on your head were in numbered.
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. 7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. DON’T BE AFRAID; you are worth more than many sparrows.
So which is it? Can it be both? Is there a SIN so great that God would punish you ENDLESSLY for?
8 “I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God. 9 But whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God. 10 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.
