Question for Catholics

So you can blaspheme the Father and Son, and seek repentance and forgiven.

Yet blaspheming the Holy Spirit is (the only) unforgivable sin? Why does the Holy Spirit get this special privilege?

If the Trinity (which makes 0 sense) is to be believed, shouldn't all parts of the Godhead get equal rights?

I don't have a priest handy, so I came to the next best thing: /misc/. Please educate me

    To blaspheme the Holy Spirit one must understand what the Holy Spirit is.
    What is it? Is it your mind? Is it everyone's mind? Is it the wind? Is it fate?
    Kind of hard to blaspheme something without knowing what it is, so you'd have to reject God totally and research ways to hate God more completely.

      >Why does the Holy Spirit get this special privilege?
      I'm not Catholic but my interpretation of it is that the Holy Spirit is what inspires men to be good and do good. To blaspheme against it is to blaspheme against the good within yourself at the root of your being.

      “Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit” means not being repentant for your sins. Since it is through the Holy Spirit that God bestows his grace upon humanity and forgives us of our wrong doings.
      When are in a state of sin and are not seeking repentance from God we blaspheme against the Holy Spirit.

      Therefore the only unforgivable sin is to not be sorry for our sins. Since if we are not sorry and not seeking repentance we cannot be forgiven.

      I think it's pretty based for /misc/ to refrain from joking about Jesus or any other degenerate shit. Thank you bros.

      The Holy Spirit, from what I have gathered in my walk as a Christian, is the spirit of truth. To sin is to blaspheme the truth as the Holy Spirit will lead one into all truth (that is, taking up your cross and renouncing sin daily to follow Jesus).

    The only known case of someone committing the unforgiveable sin was the Pharisees.
    Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit isn't saying
    >F you Holy spirit!
    It's witnessing Christ or an angel working a miracle, knowing it is truly divine and holy, and choosing to blaspheme it as demonic (like the Pharisees did to Christ).

        Paul was visited by Christ in a vision and immediately accepted Him as Lord.
        He wasn't one of the Pharisees who saw Christ healing the sick and blind and labeling it as demonic.

        pride is not a thing. pride is the absence of the grace of humility. lucifer is incapable of asking for forgiveness because he does not have the grace of humility. he did this knowingly and will suffer forever because of it.

        This is also a valid response to a root of the question "Why doesn't God just obliterate these entities from existence?" Because he won't. As for the reason he won't: your guess is as good as mine. Maybe the same reason he doesn't just obliterate the souls of wicked men or kill them before they're born.

      Satan is not a singular entity, it's an umbrella term that just means "Adversary." Ba'al, Beelzebub, Lucifer, Moloch. Half the Semitic pantheon could be called Satan. Demonology is not exactly a popular field of Christian theology.

            It's hard to explain. The source is like the origin of all positive energy, but it's not exactly conscious. When I say Gods I mean the beings that created humanity and the different races (except israelites but that's a different topic). They are teachers, for example Thoth being the God of magic was known to teach it. They all did.

    Legit theological answer:
    >blaspheming the Holy Spirit
    This means a continual state of denying the gospel. It doesn't mean saying "frick you, Holy Spirit". It means not accepting the gospel (the good news about Jesus). Without accepting Jesus, there is no forgiveness of sins, so that's where "unforgivable" comes from.

    Because it's the spirit of God itself that hovered over the waters in Genesis, that came to Christ when He was baptized, and is also known as the Spirit of Truth.
    I will never understand how people can be curious enough to wish to know things but not willing to just read the bible or at the very LEAST use a search engine to seek out the pertinent details.

    How does it make zero sense? How can you people be so blockheaded? You yourself are more than one thing at once, a son, an uncle, a brother, a nephew, etc. So, why do so many of you have this autistic inability to grasp God being more than one aspect at once?
    The lack of self-awareness while speaking as if in position to judge subject matters wholly inadequately is so rampant in this board.

    The word trinity doesn't exist in the bible, and the only place where you can find the trinity is in 1st John 5:7-8, which was added in the textus receptus, and doesn't exist in any original manuscript. it was Justinian who made the worship of the trinity a law. meanwhile, the trinity is a pure Egyptian concept, it was brought into the church through Gnostic christians, then made law by Justinian. how did god bless Justinian? he sent a plague that wiped out 50% of the eastern empire, and then raised up the Arabs and israelites out of the desert, and started Islam which is a religion specifically designed to kill trinitarians.

      moronic. Do you need everything spelled out to you when it's demonstrable in plot? The spirit of God. The father in Heaven. The Son.
      Three examples. All represent the Lord.
      It's moronic how so many of you here are so self-assured while demonstrably so BLIND to simple literary elements such as recognizing details.

          So, you are moronic. It figures. If you can't write a book report that's comprehensible or competent to save your own life because you need everything spelled out word for word in order to grasp it, then you shouldn't judge matters of the bible. Even with a learning disability, you should be able to recognize that much.

            Who said any thing about a metaphor you Black personhomosexual? I never said that. First you can't grasp anything except for what is said word for word. Then you make an assessment on language used and conclude it's metaphorical? So, you can't even understand the term aspects either? And yet you find yourself to be mentally fit to take part in judgement on such matters? Its' so preposterous!
            It's funny in a way. All you self-assured prideful morons here, while you deny things of God, and seek to influence others to do the same, you are proof positive of the end times being here. The people who are filled with vanity and pride to the point of being blind to all else except for that which they chase after with their own lusts, whether physical or mental or emotional.

            That was your whole point that the trinity is explains in the Bible when it's not and is a man made Gnostic tradition. There is only one God. Jesus was God's son, like Luke says Adam was God's son, but they weren't literally God. Rekt.

            No, it wasn't you walking learning disability. Plot details. That's what explains it. Said nothing about a metaphor, you just assumed that illogically. Said it directly even. You rekt yourself. Have you ever blasphemed the Holy Spirit? Because if you have, you're doomed in every single way. Not forgiven in this world or the next. And with that, it means you are cut off from reason. The israelites are already an example of this because they believe Jesus Christ was a sorcerer who had a demon just like the pharisees said.
            Because of how you act, because of how you attempt to influence others, despite your obvious learning disability, I have no sympathy for you. For how many naive souls have you damned in your foolishness, seeking to cling to an ego of self-importance online because you have no real accomplishments irl? Many I bet. And all you will be judged for.

    Im not a Catholic but the reason being is that blaspheming the Spirit is basically calling it demonic, its essentially calling God satanic, which is blasphemy of the highest order, ultimate rejection of God
    This is truly unforgiveable.
