Mark 3:29

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

Mark 3:29: but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation”—

Acts 13:39: and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
Colossians 2:13: And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Mark says that the sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven, but Acts, Colossians, and First John say that all sins can be forgiven.

If you pay attention to the wording, Mark doesn't actually say that blaspheming cannot be forgiven—it says those who blaspheme will not be forgiven.

Its meaning may simply be, then, that those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit have gotten to the point where they'll never find salvation, and thus won't ever receive forgiveness.
