THE GOSPEL OF MARK (Mark 3.20 to 35)
At that time, 20Jesus returned home with his disciples. And again met so many people that they could not even eat. 21 When heard it, Jesus' relatives came out to grab it, because they said that was beside himself.The 22nd teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem said he was possessed by Beelzebub, and by the prince of demons he cast out demons.
23Então Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: "How can Satan drive out Satan? 24Se a kingdom is divided against itself, it can not keep up. 25Se a family is divided against itself, it could remain in. 26Assim if Satan rises against himself and is divided, it can not survive, but will be destroyed.
27Ninguém can enter the house of a strong man to steal his property, without first the tie. Only then can plunder his house. 28In I tell you, everything will be forgiven men, those sins, like any blasphemy that have said. 29Mas whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin. "
30Jesus said this, they said, "He is possessed by an evil spirit." 31Nisso came his mother and his brothers. They stood outside and sent for him. 32Havia a crowd sitting around him. Then they told him, "Your mother and your brothers are outside looking for you." 33Ele replied:"Who is my mother and who are my brothers" 34E looking at those who sat around him, said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. 35Quem does the will of God is my brother, my sister and my mother. "
A. BIGCUORE`S COMMENT:
I once asked a priest about sin against the Holy Spirit, he said he is "TOTAL DENIAL OF GOD" it is "your NO ACCEPTANCE ", because of the pride of the sinner.
The sinner PROUD do not you ask God for forgiveness, even at the last moment of his life. This, in my view, is a sin against the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is INFINITE KINDNESS AND MERCY. Only He respects our free will.
The Pharisees and scribes in their pride, said Jesus cast out devils by Beelzebub, that is, cast out demons because (He Jesus) was possessed by the spirit of the devil.
Now this arrogance and imperiousness of the Pharisees and teachers of the law were being characterized in God's eyes, as, rather, SIN AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT !. For they were arrogant and proud and thought themselves beyond good and evil.
Sin against the Holy Spirit is the denial of God, until the last moment. It is wary of salvation that comes from God. It is not FORGIVE not want to be forgiven, because it does not trust the mercy of God.
We need to metanoia (Greek for conversion mentality transformation) take account of the sinner's heart so you can embrace the projetdo Salvation that comes from God. Amen!A holy and happy Sunday to everyone (as). Grace and blessings to all (the)!
