Re: Unpardonable sin?
Which religion or religious sect embraces the notion of "unpardonable sin"?
I have no idea--I do not get close to the boa constrictor-like death 'group hugs' that you so diplomatically refer to as 'embraces.'
What would be an unpardonable sin?
My answer comes from my personal perspective as a bible-believing, extreme anti-labelist and religious anarchist...
'Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit' seems to be the only one listed in my handy-dandy guide book....
Doesn't really help much, in that kind of obscure jargon, does it?
I understand it to be calling the elusive quality and oft-alleged mythical creature of 'Truth' the Holy Spirit--and that any of the following or similar infractions against that ideal are 'blasphemy':
*knowingly allow the defamation of,
*disregard/disrespect the possibility of and therefore refuse to answer when it knocks at your (inner) door,
*and/or make personally designated but ill-chosen substitutions to share freely abroad, to both innocents and those of age, indiscriminately and falsely advertised as 'truth', especially as an adjunct to personal dysfunctional maintainence of self-delusion.
(That's why I always look for the Truth with the capital T)
But seriously, that's my take on your query.
