The Unforgivable Sin

Does the LORD God refuse to forgive certain sins? Or is it that some people refuse to repent, and in that sense, they will never be forgiven?



Isaiah 22:14. The LORD of Hosts revealed himself in my ears, “Surely this iniquity will not be forgiven you until you die,” says the Lord, the LORD of Hosts.

Matthew 12:31. Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.

Mark 3:29. but whoever may blaspheme against the Holy Spiritnever has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation.”

Luke 12:10. Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but those who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

1 John 5:16. If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God will give him life for those who sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death. I don’t say that he should make a request concerning this.
