It Shall Not Be Forgiven - Part 1

Efforts have been made in an attempt to understand what Jesus meant when he said that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit would not be forgiven. The gravity of such an utterance by the Lord begs the most serious inquiry! Key to our understanding is that of grasping both what Divine forgiveness means and what such blasphemy against the Spirit entails. Only when we have brought into harmony these two elements together with the love of God as found in Jesus do we begin to see that, far from a cold juridical condemnation of those guilty of a great wrong, Jesus’ words express a loving truth full of Father’s compassion and meant for our good.

Over the next four days I will be sharing George MacDonald’s thoughts on this very passage. May it prove an encouraging blessing to all who listen and hear!

Salvation from Sin: Seven Startling (Well Maybe) Takeaways

The last several episodes of FatherBound were a sharing of George MacDonald’s Salvation from Sin. I find myself indebted to MacDonald for his insight into God’s character, a witness to the soaring of his unfathomable love that billows to the heights of our imaginations through this wonderful sermon. Of special note are the following:

  1. The first place we must begin in an effort to rid the human race of evil is ourselves. 
  2. Our sinful deeds are but the dead husks of the live sins in our heart.
  3. Jesus came, not to save us from the punishment of our sin, but from sin itself, its presence in us. 
  4. We must agree with God as to our sin and begin to send it away through a choice of our will.
  5. Hell itself is an extension of God’s love and has a redemptive purpose.
  6. When our sin has departed, so shall the punishment.
  7. Salvation lies in faith in the living Christ.

As we touch on each of the above points in turn we will find ample opportunity to think boldly as we encounter ideas that may run counter to those we have held. Mining for precious stones is hard work, the earth clings tightly to her treasures. Let us not shirk the challenge involved in diligent thinking when the ideas presented are unfamiliar. It will be worth the effort!

The Rescue

One of the things that seems to enjoy widespread acceptance among Christians is the idea that Jesus came to save people from sin, from the wrongness that is so much a part of the human race. What is not always agreed on is some of the key details in such a grand undertaking.
