ah the questions

Mat 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
Mat 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.


can someone explain to me what the holy ghost is ...I am confused here..I know when Catholics pray...they say to the Father, The Son and to the Holy Spirit......what I have never thought about it before..what is the Holy Ghost?? I always figured Father = God, The Son = Jesus, Holy Spirit = ??

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

While Jesus was filled with the fullness of God, we the believers are filled with just a part of God. This part of God is called the Holy Spirit. God fills us with His Spirit to help us in our everyday walk, to teach us, guide us, comfort us, ect....

Mat 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

The Pharisees committed an act of blasphemy when they tried to attribute the works of the Holy Spirit to works of the devil. Jesus said that a person can say what they want about Him but when it comes to the power and the works of God it is best to keep their mouths shut.

Now, I probably know what your thinking, if Jesus is God and the Holy Spirit is God then wouldn't blasphemy against Jesus be the same as blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? In a simple answer I would say that Jesus was talking from a human stand point, His human nature since he says "Son of Man" and not "Son of God". I could go longer and deeper into what I think but I may end up starting a huge debate and I am not sure I want to get into that right now.
