The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

This is one of those verses that only concerns people who it shouldn’t. The Bible says reprobates don’t even want to retain God in their knowledge, if you are concerned and upset about having lost your means of salvation you’re automatically not a reprobate. Take a cool shower to calm down, say your prayers, and read your Bible. Jesus loves you.

>>725180

>Believing that Jesus did miracles in the name of Satan

Not just believing, but knowingly and outwardly denying the works of the Holy Spirit as acts of God and attributing Christ's power to Satan.

It's clearly stated in the Bible. Matt. 12:22-32 says, "Then there was brought to Him a demon-possessed man who was blind and dumb, and He healed him, so that the dumb man spoke and saw. 23And all the multitudes were amazed, and began to say, "This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?" 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, "This man casts out demons only by Beelzebub the ruler of the demons." 25 And knowing their thoughts He said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself shall not stand. 26" And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand? 27 "And if I by Beelzebub cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Consequently they shall be your judges. 28 "But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 29 "Or how can anyone enter the strong man's house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. 30 "He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters. 31 "Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. 32 "And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or in the age to come."

By simply looking at the context it becomes apparent that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is saying that Jesus did His miracles by the power of the devil. It is not saying bad things, doing bad things, or blaspheming God's name. It is deliberate deception in the context of Christ's presence, claiming that the power of the Holy Spirit is in fact the work of demons.

Thank you, this sounds like the correct interpretation.


b512dc  No.725313

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is never done accidentally. Ever. You hold the same fear that I once held and it is the whisper of the devil that will convince you with scripture that you have committed a sin that cannot be forgiven. The Pharisees blasphemed the Holy Spirit by calling his works of Beezelbub, but if you call the works of the Holy Spirit of the devil in ignorance are you condemned? No, because the Pharisees made this accusation with full intentionality and out of holding onto their own power. They knew what they were seeing, and they consciously and deliberately rejected it for the sake of their own power. Pay attention to the theme of this blasphemy. Intentional rejection. That is what the sin against the Holy Spirit is, because when you intentionally reject it, how can you ever be saved?

And anyone who says "Jesus be cursed" does not do so by the Holy Spirit, but no one can say "Jesus is Lord" in their heart and with their mouth except by the Holy Spirit. Fear not! For whatever work the Father has started in you, he will finish, because when we are unfaithful, he is faithful.

Don't fall into the trap of refusing to forgive yourself because of your sin, either logically or in your heart. Not only are you required to forgive others, but the same applies to you. If you refuse to forgive yourself "the master will throw the wicked servant where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth until he pays back everything he owes."

Refuse to forgive yourself, and the Lord will chasten you heavily if you are his child until you forgive yourself. This is the weapon of the devil, that you believe you cannot be forgiven when the Lord has declared you forgiven. Is your judgement higher than his?

God bless

I'll just quote part of the footnotes of my Bible, they explain it well:

>"… Now this kind of sin is usually accompanied with so much obstinancy, and such wilful opposing the Spirit of God, and the known truth, that men who are guilty of it, are seldom or never converted: and therefore are never forgiven, because they will not repent. Otherwise there is no sin, which God cannot or will not forgive to such as sincerely repent…"

Go confess Anon, talk about it with priest. I think you just blasphemed in your mind, devil put some thought in your mind. God is merciful and I do think the "rejection of Holy Spirit" is quite a different thing.

>>725166

Rejection of Logos. Rejection of Christ.

Not some thought that satan puts in your mind to to make you doubt your faith. It's a rejection of the Holy Spirit through whole life. Opposing, hating Truth.

I believe that intrusive, pervasive, or otherwise sinful thoughts are simply tests.

Why does God allow evil to attempt to work into our lives at all? To test us. He likes to see us do his will despite the hardships that come along with righteousness.

Everytime a hurtful intrusive thought enters your head and is ignored and not acted upon God smiles.

I "heard" (isn't it someone noone knows for sure?) it's either when you somehow whole heartedly convince yourself God's word is not true, altered to your own likings or not real/applicable to you/whatever, eliminating you from ever knowing otherwise due to consciously blocking out all the evidence that would suggest it.

Either that or something else, like despair and believing you are beyond God's help, which is a paradox however because if you do despair and couldn't be forgiven for it, it would come true, so of course anyone confronted with that knowledge would reconcile. So one of those two ideas is false, and because God's word is eternal you despairing over your forgiveness probably is. All in all, OP, I would just serve as much penance as you feel is just for you, so as to show Him you care, and have faith.

Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit cannot be done accidentally, and if you are fearful that you have done it purposefully, it's almost certain that you didn't. It's basically knowing for certain that God is there, and denying him BECAUSE you know that you feel his certain presence. It's just abject hatred and denial of God in the sure knowledge that he exists and is working in your presence, it's basically not possible for even atheists to commit this sin since they believe that God doesn't exist.

The Pharisee blasphemed the Holy Spirit in that he denied Christ, despite the fact that his knowledge of scripture meant that he could have sure knowledge that Jesus really was the messiah.

An interesting theory I once read by a mormon author is that when the anti-christ comes, it will be public policy to encourage this sin by inculcating in people the absolute truth of the gospels, but also that they must be rejected because they are immoral. Think of it like an end-stage hyper-progressivism, that acknowledges gender or ethnic differences, and for this very reason demands that gender and ethnicity be destroyed. Disturbing.

I'm terrified of committing this, or any unforgiveable sin. I have intrusive thoughts, and I won't stop thinking about this. Sometimes I can't even function, doing all I can to smother thoughts of blasphemy or even rejecting my soul. I repeatedly chant the opposite of the intrusive thoughts, sometimes in my head, someitmes aloud, but sometimes I stutter or my tongue slips, or I just mess up and say the very sinful things I'm fighting to avoid saying. It terrifies me, it keeps me from sleeping or being active or functioning in general. Please pray for me.

Assuming you're not a concern troll, on the one hand, it is good that you are concerned about pleasing Our Lord. On the other hand, the vigilance you describe that drives your concern is itself a sin. The sin is called scrupulosity, when it isn't a symptom of a mental disorder such as OCD:

Same reason imo that the pharisees wore elaborate costumes with broad phylacteries. People trying to convince you to judge them not on the content of their character, but on the things that they outwardly affirm.

To blaspheme the Holy Spirit you have to knowingly and with malice of forethought claim that an evil spirit is the Holy Spirit, that the Holy Spirit is an evil spirit (claim that God is lucifer, etc), or knowingly serve another God and attempt to convince others that your God is the Holy Spirit.

It is most likely both, as they often seem to occur together.

Scrupulosity is sinful because it is rooted in delusion and not in the truth. We're to find peace in Christ, not worry or fright, especially where no grounds for either exists.

>Like Luther, Alphonsus found some comfort in faith. But, unlike Luther, Alphonsus didn’t rely on faith alone. He depended on the help provided by the Church, particularly confession and devotion to the Blessed Sacrament.

>Alphonsus had his own struggle with confession. Fr. Santa notes that “from Alphonsus’s own admission . . . he exhausted most of the confessors in Naples trying to come to a decision with certitude.” But the major difference for Alphonsus is that he trusted his confessors—and he urged those struggling with scrupulosity to do the same.

https://www.catholic.com/magazine/online-edition/the-saint-who-beat-scrupulosity

This is probably a serious problem for you, so I would seek help from a qualified person if I were you. God bless you.


b3818b  No.758727

>>758502

Out of curiosity, are there any Bible verse that come to mind that deal with this sin? It seems like it couldbe a vicious cycle where one fears other sins, then fears the sin of scrupulosity when trying to confess, etc.

I don't want to derail the thread, so maybe I'll make another if I have more questions. In the meantime, I'll try to figure out some activity or distraction from scrupulosity that doesn't cause scrupulosity itself.Thank you.
