The Unforgivable Sin



  • 2012-07-02T15:37:54

Thanks for the reminder, but please don't assume that everyone watching this video has a boring life, hates reading the Bible, and sees prayer as a chore. If the point is, "don't be self-righteous," then be careful not to put yourself above everyone else. I know plenty of Christian people who are loving, compassionate, and generous, who don't come down on others because of their vocabulary, and who have very exciting lives passionately serving the Lord.

East Texas...I totally get the beautiful message in this video. I give generously (more than my tithe). I have discussed this topic from two perspectives. One, the scenario that the boy gave in the video. He should NOT have been in private school while the American people paid for his food and housing. That is tantamount to theft. Thou shalt not steal. My second perspective references the wording in your post. I agree that I made a mistake in how I worded it. Maybe I should change my language from "no fault of their own" to "making no effort to escape the circumstance they are in". In other words, when a mother is on welfare and has absolutely no desire to better herself or the life for her children aside from wanting more from the government, I believe that should not fall on the American people. Welfare should be a bridge to a new life, not a way of life. I think others are missing the point. I work with people on welfare. I see people accepting government assistance and using drugs daily while on that assistance. When you give those people money, you are enabling them, not helping them. When a young single mom receives government help with housing and food stamps and Medicaid and somehow, someway can still afford to put her child in a private school, she is stealing from you and me. Even if the loving grandparents are paying for the child's schooling while mother receives from the government. The right and noble thing for those grandparents to do, and for the mother to accept, is help with the food and housing, not the private school, especially when the schooling can be obtained at no cost. And yes, I know the public school system is not the most desirable circumstance for many (me included); however, given that scenario, it is the right circumstance. You can still train up your child in the way he should go even if they go to public school. I hope that clarifies my position.

Mr. Hill, I honestly believe Jesus Christ would be ashamed that His name is used to describe people who believe as you do... Where did our Lord say we were only to help those who need help through no fault of their own? You missed the beautiful message in this video... I pray that your eyes are opened before it is too late...

As a single mother...I totally agree with what this young man is saying...and it is so sad. I suffer this everyday and so does my son...especially. THE CHURCH WELL AT LEAST MINE DOES NOTHING ABOUT THIS...UNTIL NOW.

Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. .. when we fully come to realize that we are saved by Grace alone - and just like a Gift is free, we do not earn or pay for our salvation - we are broken to the core because we realize that what we deserve is death but have been given life. The natural response to this would be an overflowing of joy and love - and therefore if we don't have this response, the question stands: do you truly believe in the good news of the Gospel? Do you believe that Christ died for you personally?

Maybe the loving grandparent should pay for her food and housing instead of having you and I pay for it. If the grandparents can afford private school then they have their priorities mixed up. Feed and house the grandchildren first. Don't have the citizens of the United States feed and house them while the grandparents pay for private school. I SAY AGAIN....we live in a screwed up society with a major ENTITLEMENT mentality. I can remain calm and talk about this civilly, but at some point the tables in the temple have to be overturned.

"How does a mother on food stamps and federal housing afford to send her kid to a school that requires tuition when there are free public schools? " I know a struggling single mom who does this. A loving grandparent pays their way. Don't be quick to assume someone's situation and judge them before learning the circumstances. :)

I think the point is that by us "rejecting" or denying these people and issues we are denying Christ. Does He not say that which you do for the least of these you do also for me?

Sandy...Jesus is the judge. I am not a judge of character and I don't play one on TV. And, I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night. The standard answer with many is "don't judge me". As Christians we are called to hold each other accountable. That's what the whole premise of accountability partners is about. If accountability partners don't hold you accountable (i.e. - judge you and help you correct your sins), then we would all run wild thinking we are not accountable to anyone. The scenario the young man gave did not make sense. I am in social work and just so happen to work with people on welfare (food stamps, Medicaid, govt housing, TANF). Not one single time have I run into a family that is in a position to accept these types of benefits while affording to put their child(ren) through a private school. If they did do such a thing, they would be committing welfare fraud. This is not about judgement. This is about sharing wisdom with a young man that has the wrong perspective of the school's responsibility. Kara...thanks for the response. We do have such a program at our church where a group of men are available to help out single mothers and elderly with tasks such as carpentry, mechanics, etc. We call it the Groomsmen Program.

The Bible is clear the only unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Spirit. All other sin is forgivable but how much better if we strive to not sin in the first place, to be more like Jesus and be obedient to God.

Gary, Didn't Jesus go amongst the sinners and help them. How can you judge His Mother when you don't know her circumstance. However, she did got her son in a Christian School, shows me she was leading Him in the right direction. So many men desert there families and these women are left alone and helpless to raise the children on there own. God Bless You and please let Jesus be the Judge.

Rob I have to agree, too many have missed the point of the message, yet again. It really has to do with being in a relationship with the Lord, not religion. Religion is what nailed Christ to the cross, relationship raised Him from the dead for our redemption.

Good message but is he not being presumptuous to make a point or message? How does he know what they use the tuition money for, as I am sure what he suggested is exactly what they do.It goes without saying, being that they are Christian.It truly shows that we make judgements and assumptions without truly knowing an organization or a group or culture."Let the one without sin cast the first stone" comes to mind and "take the speck out of your own eye, then you will be able to take the speck out of your brother's eye".

Oh wow, I actually posted a response, but spelled exception wrong, so that was in response to my post, not yours. I'm not sure what happened to my original response, but to sum it up: I see where you are coming from Gary, and no, I didn't think you meant it that way at all. "I hope my response didn't somehow make you feel that I don't believe God doesn't forgive single mothers" I can see why you wrote what you did, and I agree that food and clothes come before private education. I wouldn't accept financial handouts if I truly do not need them, but I think there are different reasons for single parents other than what is often thought of as sterotypical reasons. The help I would like to be offered is help with my car, or fixing my lawn mower, or roof. Things that I cannot do, but also cannot afford to have done usually.

There is only one unpardonable sin, that is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Getting to heaven, you can not by works, works without faith is dead. The world helps the homeless too! I am sorry but without Christ being the center of your life, you can do nothing. No one has to brag about their works, God sees. One may enter the Kingdom, just by accepting Jesus as Son Of God, that He died and Rose again and that you are a sinner. For my Yoke is easy says the Lord. Reward are given by Christ on judgement day to those according to their works. All Christians will receive the crown of Righteousness, so why not strive to get more rewards in heaven, and do not boast about them! do all good in silence.
