Have you ever entertained the thought that you might have committed the unforgivable sin?
In Jeremy Myers latest book, Why You Have Not Committed The Unforgivable Sin, he discusses this very subject. I know, the title gave that away, right? If you have ever struggled with or just wondered about this question or know someone who has it would be well worth the investment to get your own copy and spend a little time with it.
He makes a very logical case for just what the unforgivable sin is not, what it is, and how you can tell for sure if you have committed it or not.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers but if a brief look at the book and what it contains helps someone decide to pick it up and answer a question they have been harboring for days, weeks, months or years then it is well worth my time here and I hope that is the end result of this post.
I thought I knew
I have always though I knew what the unforgivable sin was and don’t think my idea was really that far off the mark. It was just not as complete as it is now after reading this book. This was my prevailing understanding before reading this book, If you have made the decision to not follow Jesus and accept his free gift of salvation (Free to us – He paid the full price on Calvary) then you have and continue to commit the unforgivable sin or the sin of disbelief. Deciding to not say Yes to Jesus or postponing that decision is the same thing as saying No.
I now know more
However, in this book Jeremy goes a little deeper than my original thought and adds some practical meat around the bones so to speak. He does that in a way that is very easy to read and very concise as well. The book is only 85 pages long but those 85 pages could change your life or the life of someone you care about.
In this book Jeremy covers common views about the unforgivable sin and dispels some common myths. Suicide, divorce, adultery and abortion are discussed.
Next he reviews the most common scripture related to the unforgivable sin.
Matthew 12:21-32 is most frequently mentioned because it is the only passage which specifically mentions a sin that will not ever be forgiven, a sin which is called “blasphemy against the Spirit.”
He details exactly what the unforgivable sin is.
Ultimately, only one sin fits all of the requirements of the unforgivable sin. It is this: The unforgivable sin is a willful and slanderous rejection of the Holy Spirit’s testimony about Jesus
Have you committed the unforgivable sin?
And, finally, explains exactly why it is likely you have not committed the unforgivable sin. This will likely be for you as it was for me one of those “aha” moments when you will think, “Now that makes perfect sense doesn’t it? Why didn’t I think of that before?”
This is done in a very engaging and easy to read and understand style that I think you will appreciate. I believe you will also gain some perspectives you might not have thought of before in addition to your “aha” moment.
Get your copy of Why You Have Not Committed The Unforgivable Sin today and add to your own knowledge just for yourself or to help others that cross your path in this journey called life. You will be glad you did.
Until next time…
