The unpardonable sin


E G White

"Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come". Matthew 12:31-32

RH 1897-06-29 Review & Herald paragraph 9
(This statement is also published in the 1996 Morning Watch book, "Ye Shall Receive Power", page 35.)

"No one need look upon the sin against the Holy Ghost as something mysterious and indefinable. The sin against the Holy Ghost is the persistent refusal to respond to the invitation to repent. If you refuse to believe in Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, you love darkness rather than light, you love the atmosphere that surrounded the first great apostate. You choose this atmosphere rather than the atmosphere that surrounds the Father and the Son, and God allows you to have your choice."

[But not without tremendous efforts (including dying on a cross in front of you) to persuade you not to go that way!!!!]
