Did the Pharisees commit eternal sin?


but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” He said this because they were saying, “He has an impure spirit.” (Marks 3:29-30)

The pharisees, also known as “Teachers of the Law” might of been accused by Jesus of blaspheming the Holy Spirit in my opinion, which is an eternal sin that is possibly unforgivable. To me this clearly shows that the religious, hypocritical pharisees were possibly in the worst circumstance to be, to be able to come to repentance. This is why we probably see throughout the gospels why Jesus had such a strong reaction toward pharisees and sadducees whenever he encountered with them. Be careful not to become a modern pharisee.
