Blasphemy-The Eternal Sin?
In my years of ministry I have had from time to time Christians come into my office wondering and stressed out that they have committed the unforgivable sin. The Christians who had believed that they had committed this eternal sin wanted to repent and change their life in becoming a better believer. As they had this desire in their life I assured them that they had not committed this sin.
The questions I want us to look at and discuss are: What is blasphemy? Why do so many Christians think that they have committed this sin? Why is blasphemy unforgivable? Do you think we stress the seriousness of this sin in churches today? Do think it is important for clergy and other leaders in the church to educate believers about blasphemy? Why? How would that help their spiritual life? Would it remove guilt that many have today in believing they have committed this sin? Have you personally felt as if you have committed this sin? Why do so many believers think that they have committed it? What do you think can be done in dealing with this subject? What are other sins that Christians treat as unforgivable (ie: homosexuality and divorce)?
