    How was Eve created? What I have read or heard, I don't remember, is that Adam was placed in a deep seep and GOD created Eve with one of Adam's ribs. Is that true? and if so. where can I find that information, in the Bible?

    My friend was cursing at God a couple of times. Think out of anger rather than actually coming from his heart. Now he feels he can't go to heaven never. He believes in God, and Jesus died on the cross for his sins. He believes he's committed the unpardonable sin. He reads his bible and turned his life around to the Lord since this happened years ago. I haven't seen him over a year but he tells me that he feels fear of not going to heaven.

    I fully support Prodigal son comments below and will pray as well that you find your friend so you can set him free with Gospel truth.

    At the moment he believed (confessed that Jesus died for him in his place), he was sealed with the Holy Spirit as a down payment of His inheritance.

    Nobody can snatch him out of God's hand - not even himself.

    John 10:27-29 (LEB): 27My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28And I give them eternal life, and they will never perish forever, and no one will seize them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them* to me, is greater than all, and no one can seize them* from the Father's hand.

    In our sin nature, we will wander away out from under the Lords protection, but He has promised above not to lose a SINGLE one of us!

    Have a blessed day

    Beloved, please tell your friend that Jesus took all his sins at the Cross. When he received Jesus as his Savior, he threw our sins as far as the East is to the West; which is a straight line into infinity. He dropped those sins into the sea of forgetfulness and remembers them no more.

    He is the Alpha and the Omega, and he sees our lives from beginning to the end... including all of our sins. Blaspheming the Holy Spirit is bad, but sincere repentance is possible.

    He's a Prodigal Son who needs to come home to ABBA; His Father who's waiting for him.

    Most of us have been on that road ourselves. Even me. That road back home is hard because every step taken, Satan cries loser! Sinner! He'll never take you back! Fool, Dreamer! Reminding us of all we said or did.

    But then you see your Father on the road looking for you...and running to greet you.

    Tell your friend, that he is forgiven and will be restored. Luke 15:18-32

    I'll pray you find him soon.

    Totally agree with you.

    Many get it wrong when they don't put the full weight of God's Word (promise) concerning their guaranteed Salvation once they are Born Again.

    May the Lord bless you abundantly in standing firm to His Truth.

    The reason the sin was unpardonable is that by blaspheming the Holy Ghost they were deliberately rejecting their only means of salvation. This is analogous to refusing the lifeline that could save you from drowning.

    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (Romans 5:8-10)

    Unpardonable sin? Can't be done. Only happened in the time of Christ if you saw Him do a miracle and you said it was done by Satan. Today, the closest thing to an unpardonable sin is to not believe in the saving grace of Jesus. Believing is more than just "believing," as many might think. Please refer to the many times that we are exhorted to keep the commandments (by John, especially). Also, please refer to the sections which state that our names can be "blotted out of the Lamb's Book of Life," which would imply that our name had to be in it to be blotted out. Therefore, it is imperative that a believer be a person who changes their life, and so endures in that changed life "to the end." As you sin along the way, keep asking for forgiveness. However, do not sin intentionally, knowing that there is grace. Paul cautioned against sinning more so that grace could more abound. Seek to do good.
