The Unforgivable Sin

21 07 2008
I found a terrific article on this subject by George MacDonald, a theologian and writer who was deeply admired by none other than C.S. Lewis. I’ve been free from fear about this particular subject for quite some time now, and I wish I’d seen this article years ago. It helps to put this whole issue in perspective, and he effectively communicates that this particular sin isn’t one specific act, but a state of being (one that is not entirely irrevocable, either).

Here it is:

“My friends, I offer this as only a contribution towards the understanding of our Lord’s words. But if we ask him, he will lead us into all truth. And let us not be afraid to think, for he will not take it ill.”
