Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit

Introduction

There is a phrase that comes across in various forms, such as:

  1. Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit
  2. Unforgivable Sin

Let us see how different theologians identify and tackle it.

Bible Verses

Matthew
Unpardonable Sin ( Matthew 12:31-32 ) ( Link )

“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy [every evil, abusive, injurious speaking, or indignity against sacred things] will be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the [Holy] Spirit will not be forgiven.

Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit [by attributing the miracles done by Me to Satan] will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”

 

Mark
Mark 3:28-30  ( Link )

“I assure you and most solemnly say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and all the abusive and blasphemous things they say; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit and His power [by attributing the miracles done by Me to Satan] never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin [a sin which is unforgivable in this present age as well as in the age to come]”— [Jesus said this] because the scribes and Pharisees were [attributing His miracles to Satan by] saying, “He has an unclean spirit.”

 

Luke
Confessing Christ  – Luke 12:9-10 ( Link )

…But whoever denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.

And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

Angola Prison Hospice : Opening the Door

Link
Half of the 5,000 inmates at the maximum-security Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola are serving life sentences, and it is estimated that 85 percent of them will grow old and die there. Edgar Barens’s documentary examines one of the nation’s first prison-based hospice programs, a program that notably incorporates inmate volunteers into the care of other dying inmates.

Angola Prison Hospice: Opening the Door was produced by two former OSF programs, the Center on Crime, Communities & Culture and the Project on Death in America.

Khalil A. Cumberbatch is a formerly incarcerated advocate for social justice in New York City. He serves as a Policy Associate for the Legal Action Center, the only non-profit law and policy organization in the U.S. whose sole mission is to fight discrimination against people with histories of addiction, HIV/AIDS, or criminal records, and to advocate for sound public policies in those areas.

Mr. Cumberbatch has worked within the reentry community in NYC since 2010, when he was released after serving almost seven years in the NYS prison system. He is Founder and President of Kinetic Solutions, a consultant company that focuses on the assessment, implementation, and management of multiple social media outlets for companies within the NYC area. He also served as the Communications and Development Manager and periodic guest host for On The Count: The Prison and Criminal Justice Report, a radio program that is exclusively hosted and produced by formerly incarcerated individuals.

Mr. Cumberbatch served as the Strategic Initiatives Consultant at Immigrant Defense Project, a legal impact-litigation non-profit that promotes fundamental fairness for immigrants accused or convicted of crimes. In 2014, he was one of two recipients of an Executive Pardon from NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo to prevent his deportation from the United States. He was selected from over 110 applicants as one of 20 leaders in JustLeadershipUSA’s 2015 Inaugural Leading With Conviction Development Program.

Mr. Cumberbatch graduated from CUNY Herbert Lehman College’s MSW program in May 2014. He was awarded the Urban Justice Award for his work with underserved and marginalized communities affected by mass incarceration, high poverty and unemployment rates, lack of access to quality education, and other ineffective social “safety nets.”
