Sins Against the Holy Spirit

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

Sins that embody a stubborn resistance to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit and an open contempt for his gifts. They are

  • despair of one's salvation
  • presumption of God's mercy
  • impugning the known truths of faith
  • envy of another's spiritual good
  • obstinacy in sin
  • final impenitence

Although no sin is absolutely unpardonable, those who sin against the Holy Ghost stubbornly resist the influence of grace and do not wish to repent. Hence their sin cannot be forgiven them.
