Hernán, 

Te escribe Edwin Romero, traductor de The Path of Truth. Recibimos tu nota donde le haces una pregunta a Víctor sobre el pecado “inexcusable.” Aquí tienes una respuesta: 

Seguramente te refieres a estas Escrituras: 

“Por tanto os digo: Todo pecado y blasfemia será perdonado a los hombres; mas la blasfemia contra el Espíritu no les será perdonada. A cualquiera que dijere alguna palabra contra el Hijo del Hombre, le será perdonado; pero al que hable contra el Espíritu Santo, no le será perdonado, ni en este siglo ni en el venidero.” (Mateo 12:31-32 RV) 

Ese pecado (blasfemia) se refiere a atribuirle la obra de Dios a Satanás, a pesar de tener evidencia de lo contrario. Jesús había dado suficiente evidencia de que Él era de Dios, pero los hombres, principalmente los religiosos, creyeron que Él estaba actuando por el poder de Satanás. ¿Por qué? Porque ellos no creían en Él, y entonces ellos estaban sujetos al juicio en tanto que permanecieran en su incredulidad, blasfemando contra el Espíritu Santo. 

Si una persona está en incredulidad, no puede ser perdonada, ni en esta vida ni en la otra. Si esa persona llega a creer y se arrepiente, por la gracia de Dios, el perdón le es concedido. Mira el caso del apóstol Pablo, por ejemplo. Él dice que él fue blasfemo y que hizo a otros blasfemar, no creyendo en Jesucristo. Él no podía ser perdonado mientras permanecía en ese estado, hasta que el Señor intervino en su vida. Esto es lo que él dijo: 

“Y muchas veces, castigándolos en todas las sinagogas, los forcé a blasfemar; y enfurecido sobremanera contra ellos, los perseguí hasta en las ciudades extranjeras.” (Hechos 26:11 RV) 

“Doy gracias al que me fortaleció, a Cristo Jesús nuestro Señor, porque me tuvo por fiel, poniéndome en el ministerio, habiendo yo sido antes blasfemo, perseguidor e injuriador; mas fui recibido a misericordia porque lo hice por ignorancia, en incredulidad…” (1 Timoteo 1:12-14 RV)  

¿Se le perdonó su blasfemia al apóstol Pablo (anteriormente Saulo)? ¡Seguro que sí! Y el Señor tenía otros planes con Saulo. 

Y luego tenemos esta otra Escritura:

“Porque si pecáremos voluntariamente después de haber recibido el conocimiento de la verdad, ya no queda más sacrificio por los pecados…” (Hebreos 10:26 RV) 

Aquí de nuevo estamos hablando de quienes escogen pecar deliberadamente aun después de haber recibido la Verdad, teniendo mayor conocimiento ahora. Esa es una muestra de incredulidad, la raíz de todos los pecados. En tanto que una persona sigue en ese estado, no puede ser perdonado en esta vida ni en la otra. 

Ahora, la pregunta es: “¿Puede el Señor tratar con el pecado imperdonable? ¿O está Él limitado?”

Si alguna vez Él no puede tratar con algún pecado, Él está limitado, y por lo tanto no es Todopoderoso. Como nosotros sabemos que eso no es verdad, sabemos que Él tienen un plan, un tiempo, y una manera de tratar con todos los pecados de los hombres, ahora o más adelante. Antes de eso, Su ira está sobre los pecadores, voluntarios o de otra forma. 

También tenemos un ejemplo de cuando Pablo habló acerca de otros blasfemos: 

“…de los cuales son Himeneo y Alejandro, a quienes entregué a Satanás para que aprendan a no blasfemar.” (1 Timoteo 1:20 RV) 

Vemos que esos hombres eran blasfemos. Pablo, guiado por el Señor, los entregó a Satanás, para que ellos aprendieran a no blasfemar. ¿Por qué tendrían que aprender eso ellos, sin ningún propósito útil? La idea aquí es que ellos aprenderían, y por lo tanto, dejarían de blasfemar, obteniendo así misericordia y perdón del Señor, en Su tiempo. 

¿Te sirve esto?

Hernan,

This is Edwin Romero, translator at The Path of Truth. We got your note with a question to Victor about the “inexcusable” sin. Here’s a reply: 
 
You are surely referring to this Scripture:
 
“Therefore I say to you, All kinds of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven to men. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this world or in the world to come.” (Mathew 12:31-32 MKJV)
 
That sin (blasphemy) refers specifically to attributing the work of God to Satan, in spite of contrary evidence. Jesus had given enough evidence He was from God, but men, mainly the religious, thought He was working by Satan’s power. Why? Because they did not believe Him, and then they were subject of judgement as long as they remained in unbelief, blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. 
 
If a person is in unbelief, he/she cannot be forgiven, neither in this life nor in the other. If that person ever believes and repents, by the Lord’s grace, forgiveness is granted. Look at the case of the Apostle Paul, for example. He says he was a blasphemer and made others blaspheme, not believing in Jesus Christ. He could not be forgiven as long as he was in that state, until the Lord intervened in his life. Here’s what he said:
 
“And I punished them often in every synagogue; I compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly furious against them, I persecuted them even to the outside cities.” (Acts 26:11 MKJV)
 
“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, Who strengthened me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry– the one who before was a blasphemer and a persecutor and insolent. But I obtained mercy, because being ignorant, I did it in unbelief…” (1 Timothy 1:12-14 MKJV).
 
Was the apostle Paul (formerly Saul) forgiven his blasphemy? You bet he was! And the Lord had other plans with Saul.
 
And we have this other Scripture:
 
“For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins…” (Hebrews 10:26 MKJV)
 
Here again we’re talking about those who choose to sin deliberately even after receiving the Truth, knowing better now. That’s a token of unbelief, the root of all sins. As long as a person continues in that state, he cannot be forgiven in this life or in the other.
 
Now, the question is, “Can the Lord deal with the unforgivable sin? Or is He limited?”
 
If He cannot deal with a certain sin ever, He is limited, therefore not Almighty. Since we know that’s not true, we know the Lord has a plan, a time, and a way to deal with all sins of men, now or later on. Before that, His wrath is over sinners, willful or otherwise.
 
We also have an example of when Paul talked about some blasphemers:
 
“Among these are Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan so that they may learn not to blaspheme” (1 Timothy 1:20 MKJV).
 
We see those men were blasphemers. Paul, led by the Lord, delivered them to Satan, so they would learn not to blaspheme. Why would they need to learn that, if it was to no useful end? The idea here is they would learn, and therefore, stop blaspheming, thus obtaining mercy and forgiveness from the Lord, in His time.  
 
Does this help you?

惡魔般的教義:基督復臨 (以肉身再來)
這種對主以肉身復臨的錯誤教導多麼利誘,用在宗教群眾的面前作為承諾,作為一種有趣和挑逗的前景,掩蓋了他們無用無成果的空洞宣稱的信仰。有多少人已死去還等待基督的“很快”復臨,從而因為空想的承諾而錯過了目前與祂親密的交流?他們“一直學習,卻不能充分明白真理”,真理就是主耶穌基督。

The Lord Is Ruling with an Iron Rod
From: Michelle To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, May 31, 2016 8:06 AM Subject: Christ's return If Christ isn't actually coming back then WHY did He promise that over and over. Rev 19 gives the account of that coming. Almost all of the OT prophets prophesied His coming and the establishment of His Millennial Kingdom. You must be amillennial but does it REALLY look like Jesus is ruling with a rod of iron? Does it look like the government is on His shoulders? Fools! You're the ones turning people away from Biblical truth!  Michelle  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Michelle Sent: Monday, June 13, 2016 7:25 AM Subject: Re: Christ's return “But I say to you that whoever gets angry with his brother without cause will be liable to the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Empty-head!' will be liable to the council. But whoever says, ' fool!' will be liable to the fiery hell” (Matthew 5:22 EMTV). Who said Christ isn’t coming back, Michelle? He is indeed back, ruling with a rod of iron, which is applied to you as you come against Him and His appearing.  “Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men, saying, ‘Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly among them about all their ungodly deeds which they have committed impiously, and about all the harsh words which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him’” (Jude 1:14-15 EMTV).
