Miller: the unforgivable sin

Wednesday, April 11, 2018
    Commemoration of George Augustus Selwyn, first Bishop of New Zealand, 1878
    [Jesus:] “Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”
    —Matthew 12:31-32 (ESV)
    A man may blaspheme against the Son of Man and be forgiven; ... but the sin against the Spirit of Truth—what can God Himself do with or for the man who will not acknowledge the truth he knows, or follow the light he sees?
    ... Alexander Miller (1908-1960), The Renewal of Man, New York: Doubleday, 1955, p. 137 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 12:31-32; Mark 3:28-30; Luke 12:10; John 7:37-39; Heb. 10:26-27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I acknowledge Your Spirit within me and ask for help in submitting myself to Him.
