The Unforgivable Sin

Saturday in the 28th Week of Ordinary Time

My dear encountered couples:

If you were in great pain would you go to a doctor? Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. But if the pain persisted for several days, I imagine most of us here would get ourselves to a doctor or an emergency room real fast.

There are those, however, who would not. And I am not just talking about those who don’t believe in doctors for religious reasons.

There are people who want no part of doctors, hospitals, prescription medicine, or operations. To them the medical establishment kills people, it doesn’t cure them. And so, they choose to stay home and wrestle with their illness by themselves.

Are there people with spiritual illnesses who do the same thing? They don’t believe God can or will help them?

Jesus seems to think so. He is talking about the unforgivable sin - the sin against the Holy Spirit. “Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven,” he says. Why is that?

God forgives every sin anyone commits. But when a sinner has no confidence in God, like some people have no confidence in doctors, and refuse his help, there is nothing God the Father, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit can do for him.

The unforgivable sin is the refusal to let God forgive you. Don’t commit it!
