Matthew 12:31 - 12:32

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg examines the notion of an "unpardonable sin" mentioned in Matthew 12:31-32. He suggests that the Bible teaches that there is such a sin, which occurs when a person's heart becomes spiritually numb and devoid of any concern for spiritual matters, rendering them unable to repent. This state of mind is characterized by an extreme hardness of heart, which is why speaking out against the Holy Spirit is considered an unpardonable sin. However, Gregg acknowledges that not all interpretations of this passage agree with his view.
