We consider ourselves Christians; we love God, but we often do wrong in front of Him and don’t even realize we are doing it. Without fail, we all know what our greatest sins are before God. Yet there are some that we are not aware of and persist in. In this article, you will find information about the greatest sin mentioned in Bible and how to avoid it. I hope you will find new information which is relevant to your search.
What is the highest form of sin?
What is the biggest sin in Christianity?
Just as God’s command is, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind. And your neighbor as yourself” So also sin is one; it violates this commandment. Thus sins are not more severe or less profound, but all are violations of the commandment. For whoever will keep the whole law but transgresses one commandment is guilty of all the commandments.
Are there any unforgivable sins?
In Bible, it is written about one unforgivable and the greatest sin: blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. This is one of Jesus’ most enigmatic, controversial, and haunting statements. Over the past two millennia, many tortured souls have struggled with this warning.
Jesus hadn’t taught in public for a long time when His listeners began comparing Him to their teachers, called “scribes,” part of a conservative Jewish group known as the Pharisees. When Jesus addressed the scribes of His day, he was on the verge of a seismic historical-redemptive change that came along with His life and ministry. So in what sense could His warning to the scribes about “blasphemy against the Spirit” be something unique to Jesus’ time, when the old covenant was to be ended and the new covenant inaugurated?
Should these words fall on our ears, in the same way, twenty centuries later? Going back in history, through Acts and the Epistles, we find nothing else to be called “blasphemy against the Spirit.” Which signals our need to be careful in applying this precise term today.
Are all sins equal?
What are the eternal sins in the Bible?
- Self-condemnation that you are the greatest sinner and that you will go to hell
- The belief that God only saves you if He feels like it.
- God’s condemnation that He has forgotten you.
- The cursing.
- The oppression and mockery of the servants, the poor, the orphans, the widows, and the helpless.
- Evil speaking against God
How do you know if you committed an unforgivable sin?
You know you have committed the unpardonable sin if you blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. Blasphemy means defamatory, insulting, or contemptuous words. Since the Holy Spirit belongs to God, to speak against the Spirit is to say against the Creator. That is the sin you repeatedly and consciously, although your conscience presses you to repeat it.
The Holy Spirit manifests Himself through the conscience; when the conscience no longer rebukes you for that sin, it means it has forsaken you. Why is this sin unforgivable? Because the Holy Spirit is the only link between man and God. If you are cut off from the Holy Spirit, you can no longer have a connection with God, so you have lost your eternal relationship with the source of forgiveness and the Giver of eternal life.
Sins against the Holy Spirit are among the serious sins that separate man from God, along with capital sins and sins crying out to heaven. In short, sins against the Holy Spirit are those by which man unfailingly resists the divine commandments and the works of the Holy Spirit.

Does God forgive all sins if you repent?
“If the wicked turn from all the sins he has committed, and keep all my laws and do what is right and pleasing, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All the transgressions he has done will be forgotten! He shall live because of the righteousness in which he has lived.”
- We must not despair for sins committed, nor must we live in carelessness and absence of soul.
- Prayer is the most natural movement of the humble soul, recognizing its helplessness and running to its Maker, God, for deliverance and relief in its sorrows.
- Nothing is more loved by God, and no request is more readily heard than the prayer by which man asks for forgiveness of faults and strength and help to right them.
