The Church's Unpardonable Sin

by Pastor Steve Brown

Master of Divinity, Asbury Seminary


Being a pastor and having ministered in several churches, it became apparent what the worst, unforgivable sin was according to church doctrine. What do you think it is? Was it the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? No! Was it unbelief in Christ? No! The unforgivable sin, according to the church, is to criticize or say anything against it by pointing out the failures and faults of the church.

Yet the Lord tells us, "Be not deceived," (Luke 21:8) but to "prove all things" (I Thes 5:21) with Scripture and the truth. The Scripture says to "examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith." (II Cor 13:5) How much more must we examine the Church to see if it is in the true faith or not? That’s why many of you are afraid to discern the state of the organized church. You have swallowed the lie that it is a sin to evaluate it.
