Matthew 12:31 So I say to you, Every sin and every evil word against God will have forgiveness; but for evil words against the Spirit there will be no forgiveness.
Q: What does this really mean?
I’ve heard different interpretations but the only thing that makes sense was something a Jewish man said on TV or radio. He said that the original Hebrew uses the phrase “carry evil in the lord’s name”. To carry evil meant to purposefully do evil therefore, Jesus is saying, anyone who purposefully does evil in the name of the Lord will not be forgiven.
An example being the Spanish Inquisition – the religious people did evil in the name of Jesus so those people are not forgiven???
Is this true?
