And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. (Matthew 12:31)
Read verse 22 through verse 32 of Matthew 12 for the context. Now to answer the question. No one today can commit the unpardonable sin. According to the Bible, the only sin God will not pardon is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, (watch this) Committed by the Pharisees (see context). Though the Jewish religious leaders were shown compelling evidence that Jesus was God's Son, they sought to undermine Him in hopes of maintaining their own prestige. After witnessing Christ's miracles, the Pharisees blasphemed by attributing His supernatural power to Satan. Jesus' response to their sin was a warning that whoever spoke this way against the Holy Spirit would not be forgiven.Since people living now do not have the undeniable physical presence of Jesus Christ in the world, they can't recreate the Pharisees' sinful event. However, it is possible today to end-up in an unpardonable state. This happens when a person rejects the Holy Spirit's call to salvation and holy living, and then dies in a condition of unbelief.Here are the stages leading to an unpardonable state. An unbeliever chooses to sin, even though he knows what he is doing is wrong. He resists the Holy Spirit's gentle prompts towards conviction and salvation, and over many years hardens his heart against God. A time comes when the Holy Spirit makes no impression, and any desire for the Lord has dried up. There isn't a sermon or song able to move him. His heart is harden to the gospel message.
No sin can separate you from God's love. Only a conscious decision to reject the Lord can result in you spending an eternity apart from God in a devil's hell. Friend if you are not saved, I beg you please do not wait another minute to receive His offer of salvation.
