From one of his sermons is this quote ; " There is no sin that is too great that it cannot be forgiven by Almighty God . Do you hear me . God is willing to forgive any sin ... " . Though Christians young and old know that the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is an unforgiveable sin , this TBN pastor again challenges God saying that it would be forgiven . In essence this is exactly what David Jeremiah is saying . Never in the rest of his sermon does he articulate nor remotely refer to unforgiveable sins , one of which is in Mattthew 12:31 and 32 which reads ; " 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 . And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man , it shall be forgiven him : but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost , it shall not be forgiven him , neither in this world , neither in the world to come . "
The scribes and Pharisees who hated Jesus committed this sin . Mark 3:22 is one cross reference given in the older trustworthy King James Bible regarding this important issue that no Christian ever forgets nor carelessly disregards . It reads ; " And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said , He hath Beelzebub , and by the prince of devils casteth he out devils . Matthew 9: 34 states ; " But the Pharisees said , He casteth out devils through the prince of devils . " The Jewish Talmud infers this also . Mark 3:29 and 30 state ; " But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness , but is in danger of eternal damnation : because they said He hath an unclean spirit ."
David Jeremiah of course did not follow up with these other old King James Bible cross references regarding damnation which read in Hebrews 6 :4-6 : " For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened , and have tasted of the heavenly gift and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost , and have tasted the good word of God , and the powers of the world to come , if they shall fall away , to renew them again unto repentance ; seeing they crucify to themselvesthe Son of God afresh , and put him to an open shame . "
Hebrews 10 : 26 was not referenced either , which reads ; " For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth , there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins . "
1st John 5:16 states ; " If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death , he shall ask , and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death : There is a sin unto death : I do not say that he shall pray for
it . "
Dr. Jeremiah surely has read these verses . A good shepherd would warn people of this damnable danger .
