” . . . whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.”
The unforgiveable sin is not something you do.
It’s an attitude you have.
It’s not an act you commit.
It’s a journey you take.
And it becomes a journey that takes you. It comes from all-consuming, uncontrollable envy, and it starts so young. Mark my words: it begins with your envy towards people that becomes your envy toward God. If you don’t check it, this desire and this resentment will grow and grow until God becomes the target of your envy . . . Envy steals, and taken to its logical end it will rob you of your salvation.
It’s not an action. It’s a journey. And I don’t want any of you to take the first step.
Celebration restores what envy steals.
The post you’ve just read is an excerpt from Head Scratchers, available now from Abingdon Press.
In fact, it is super available at Good Shepherd this coming Saturday morning from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.
We sold out of books at our most recent signing event at church, so we have ordered a limited number of all three — The Shadow Of A Doubt, The Storm Before The Calm, and Head Scratchers.
So we wanted to schedule an event during the day and at the beginning of Christmas shopping season. As with all books sold at the church, 100% of the proceeds go to On Eagles’ Wings Ministry for young girls rescued from sex trafficking. Neither the church nor I make a dime off the sale of these books.
Remember: this Saturday, December 5 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. What better way to start your Christmas shopping?
