Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is spoken of by Jesus as the only unpardonable sin. The misunderstanding of this passage has caused many people trapped in the lies of their emotions and in homosexual sin and bondage, to despair and go back to sin because, in a fit of rage, they had cursed God or shaken a fist at Him, renounced Him or torn up and thrown away a Bible. So this Scripture, when read in a state of shame and guilt, can be misread to mean, “I have no hope – I’ve committed the unpardonable sin.” Many even think homosexuality is the unpardonable sin. This is totally false.
Though Scripture has been misinterpreted since its beginning, it is essential to keep seeking for a unified understanding of truth for the sake of the Church’s stability and it’s witness in the world. Anyone overcoming addictive behavior especially needs a clear grasp of Scripture because the nagging sin problem brings feelings of condemnation and hinders one’s faith in God’s mercy and ability to fully deliver. We have often seen the perception of Scripture skewed by the emotional responses of traumatized people.
The subject of deliverance cannot be ignored in homosexual ministry -- for demonic activity is quite real to many who have left themselves vulnerable to it through the continual use of alcohol and drugs, involvement in sexual immorality and occult activity, rebellion, or even by an outright decision to invite Satan to take over one’s life.
Have you confessed with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believed in your heart that God raised Him from the dead? If so, you are saved from the dominion of darkness and brought into the kingdom of Christ. You have been purified and born again because you have obeyed the truth which is the word of God. In Christ you have found reality. Now let the reality of Christ, Which tells you who you are, dwell richly within you. Rom. 10:9-10, Col. 1:3, 1 Pet. 1:22, Jn 3:3, Jn. 17:17, Col. 2:17, Col. 3:16
