The catholic church,as well as the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox churches believe blasphamy against the Holy SPIRIT to be an unforgivable sin (i.e., Eternal sin.)According to the catholic catechism,theere are no limits to mercy of God,but anyone who deliberately refuses to accept mercy by repenting,rejects the forgiveness of sins and the salvation offered by the Holy Spirit,Such hardeness of harth can lead to final impenitence and eternal loss.However,the church further believes there is no offence,however serious,that the church cannot forgive-that no one,however wicked and guilty,may not confidently hope forgivenes, provided his repentance is honest.Catechism says Christ desires”the gate of forgiveness should always be opon to enyone who turns away from sin.”(2)The Eastern Orthodox churches essentially hold the same principles in regards to this doctrine although their understanding of the nature of “the church”may differ slightly.
