12:31 The blasphemy against the Spirit - How much stir has been made about this? How many sermons, yea, volumes, have been written concerning it? And yet there is nothing plainer in all the Bible. It is neither more nor less than the ascribing those miracles to the power of the devil, which Christ wrought by the power of the Holy Ghost. #Mark 3:28|; Luke 12:10.
Mt 12:31 The blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven. Compare Mr 3:28 Lu 12:10. Much discussion has arisen concerning the nature of sin against the Holy Spirit, and nothing is plainer. Mr 3:30 explains it. It was ascribing Christ's works to demoniac influence. These works were wrought by the power of the Spirit.

wesley is also correct because a man seeing the powerful works at hand would have to take a stand with christ or against christ. the pharisees chose against and took stand to slander christ but the work was of his father. Christ: for it is not i who speak but my father who has spoken though me. in no scholar but this seems pretty clear to me
Jason Barnett's comment on 2010-09-20 23:48:14:
the blaspheme of the holy ghost/spirit only refers to the denial of christ. acts 7:51 states that the fathers of the isrealites were always stubborn and ressisted the holy spirit. the holy spirit comes to reprove the world of sin (unbelief) righteousness and judgement( of satan)
