Re: Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit

Does the fact that God "commands all men everywhere to repent" factor in? For if He is still commanding, it seems like it would still be possible for all men everywhere to do so......

On Not Knowing the Truth About Hell.....

How does this verse relate to agnostic positions with regards to hell (and indeed *any* topic in Scripture or in our own situations of discernment): "be fully convinced in your own mind"? Romans 14:5.... Or is it relevant? Robert (I just called myself Roberto because there was already a Robert, if I...

Re: When is the end of the age?

This is a difficult question, because I agree with Robby that at least some references to the end of the age refer to the end of the Mosaic Order (AD 70). However, I do believe that numerous "ages" are mentioned in scripture —e.g., Paul said that "the ends of the ages" had come upon his generation ...

Re: Something I have Noticed

Those that say they "have no time" can manage time so that they can do so in the future. We choose what we have time to do.....God willing.
This may mean that we get to it in February, but to say "I have no time to answer your questions" is very lame!
We either put it on our schedule or not.

Re: Something I have Noticed

Hi Steve,
Is it possible that the blasphemy is unforgivable "while it is being committed", similar to the sin of not forgiving others (neither will God forgive you) in that if you repent it is erased? Or is the grammar different one from the other?

Re: Something I have Noticed

Where is the response to this: Seems the "never be forgiven" is the only understanding that makes practical sense of Jesus words. Especially since in Luke's telling of it: Luke 12:10, New American Standard Bible (NASB) 10. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven h...

"In what way would B and C not be adjacent? I just don't understand, Roberto?"

They would not be so if the NIV is correct.....

Re: Something I have Noticed

But what did "this age" and the "age to come" mean to Jesus who spoke the words concerning blaspheming the Holy Spirit? He seemed to know of only "this age" and that age when speaking of marriage: Luke 20:34-36, New American Standard Bible (NASB) 34. Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry ...

Re: Something I have Noticed

From this angle, Jesus could be speaking of an age not adjacent to the age that He was speaking in, but there could be an age or ages in between, rather than the angle that insists that the age to come (adjacent age) is the resurrection age. Does that make sense? Yes, that's exactly what we've been...
