The Sin Against The Holy Spirit by okeyxyz(m): 4:07am On Dec 29, 2013
But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin "--(Mark 3:29)

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?--(1 Corinthians 6:19)

Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.--(1 Corinthians 6:18)


So the bible says that the sin against the holy spirit is unforgivable. But what is this sin??

Firstly, spirit means: doctrine or mindset or value-system. So holy spirit is the doctrine of God, because that is the only what to recognize him, not by his person but by his doctrine. To be Holy simply means: separated, reserved, exclusively unto God. So where the bible states that our bodies are the temple of the holy spirit, it follows that we have to behave/express the attitudes of the holy spirit. We are the carriers of the true doctrines(spirit) of God.

So what is the sin against the holy spirit that is unforgivable? This sin is against the body, and it has to be against doctrine, a behaviour that is not tolerable, whatsoever in christian doctrine. It is not a sin of what you eat, nor drink, nor what you wear, nor what tattoos you have. It is a se.xual sin and ultimately, it is homos.exuality. This is the only sin that CANNOT be excused in any manner. It has no gray areas. It has no conditions under which it is permissible. It is expressly against God's design and is the final destination of subjecting oneself to the law. The natural use of the body is for se.xual purposes. Food, drink, clothes, tattoos, jewelries, etc only serve for the of nourishing and decorating the body, but ultimately the use of the body is se.xual, as the book of Romans points out:

and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another....(Romans 1:27)

The purpose of the gospel is to reconcile us to everything that God has created so that there is no longer any conscience of sin when we do what comes to us naturally. Thus the saying that: All things are permissible...(1 Corinthians 6:12, 10:23, Titus 1:15) But homos.exuality is the one behaviour that cannot be found anywhere in design, rather it is a product/symptom of the sin-nature and of us refusing what is natural, leading to our natures/brain-patterns getting rewired and finding deviant paths to express it's se.xuality.

I am not saying the being homose.xual is the unforgivable sin, rather the act of justifying homose.xuality, incorporating and celebrating homse.xuality as christian doctrine is the blasphemy against the holy spirit and is unforgivable. Harmless as it seems(secularly), It is the spirit(doctrine) of the anti-christ and the head of all rebellions.

Sin has to be an act you actually commit(in conscience or in action). Ultimately, it is a doctrine you subject yourself to, which leads to the act.

So, it is not finding yourself to be gay that is the sin, rather it is pushing homos.exuality to take the place of God(heterosexuality), In other words: making it the doctrine.

Bros, homose.xuality is not the sin itself. Sin has to be willed action rather than a disposition which homse.xuality is. Homose.xuality rather is a symptom of sin, both of the sin-nature and of refusing sound doctrine.
