All sins can be forgiven except one



This particular bible verse caught my eye today and I thought of sharing:

"So I tell you, every sin and blasphemy can be forgiven--except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will never be forgiven."

Matthew 12:31,  Mark 3:28-29, Luke 12:10


So what is actually blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? In Catholic teaching there are six sins that blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. They are:


  1. Despair (believing that one's evil is beyond God's forgiveness);
  2. Presumption (glory without merit, that is, hope of salvation without keeping the Commandments, or expectation of pardon for sin without repentance)
  3. Envying the goodness of another (sadness or repining at another's growth in virtue and perfection);
  4. Obstinacy in sin (willful persisting in wickedness, and running on from sin to sin, after sufficient instructions and admonition);
  5. Final impenitence (to die without either confession or contrition for our sins);
  6. Impugning the known truth (to argue against known points of faith, and this includes misrepresenting parts or all of the Christian faith to make it seem undesirable)

Going through the list, it sounds like those sins a person does not have any insight they are committing.

Greetings to all Choicees. I just wanted to share a story I have recently heard...

A protestant pastor was talking to a catholic priest one day and he was very curious about the Eucharist. The pastor who was a very devout man of God asked the Catholic priest if he really believed the teachings of the catholic church that the Host was the real body and blood of Christ and not just a symbol. The priest was puzzled at this question and inquired further...

The pastor then said that, if he were the one who believed in the real presence, by now he would be crawling up the aisle to receive GOD.

I feel that sometimes the way we conduct ourselves in mass, like being indifferent, distracted and failing to show our reverence, it is as if we don't truly believe that God is really present in the Eucharist. I am equally guilty of denying God like Peter did 3 times before the rooster crowed. Everything becomes just like a lip service.

We need to prepare ourselves thoroughly, body, mind and spirit before receiving Him or meeting Him in the Blessed Sacrament. We must acknowledge and confess our own sins and wash our linen clean before inviting Him in. That is why non-Catholics or Catholics alike who do not believe in God or his presence in the Eucharist cannot receive Holy Communion.

In a recent homily, the priest also explained why in a row of Catholics going up to receive Holy Communion, the level of graces for each of them is not the same. Some get lesser or more than the others. It depends on the condition of your heart at the time. The secret is to adopt the DHL graces delivery service: D - Detachment, H - Humility, L - Love.

I think like in the parable of the sower, my current condition is like seeds falling among the thorns,  getting choked and are struggling to mature. Kudos to those who already have good soil. But for those who are like me, let us strive for DHL and spend more time with God.

Getting to know our 101choicee #2

We take this opportunity to acquaint ourselves with CEKL 101 members by inviting them to share about their life's passions, God and St. Peter’s dog πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸΆπŸΆ

1) what is choice to you?
Choice to me is about exercising the free will that we have been gifted with. And at CHOICE, you will be making them.

2)  Share your experience or one moment you like being away from kl.                
Just the idea of being somewhere new is interesting to me.

3) If St. Peter had a pet dog, what would its name be?
Dog

4) What would you  say to the single adults who are interested to join CHOICE
As the program is tailored to young single *adults*, you will be expected to have lived a little and to approach the programme with maturity. But as the name of the programme says, Make the Choice. And expect to gain from it.

Bernard

4. What would you  say to the single adults who is interested to join CHOICE

Choice 101 Bak Ku Teh Session

My journey before Choice was scary because my first thoughts were that this camp was preparing me to be a nun, lol. 

It started like this: when I arrived, I was welcomed by wonderful and cheerful faces that made me feel very welcomed. On the first day, I got to meet many new faces. I felt no regrets meeting everyone and it was amazing, as we journey together for this 3 days. 

I felt so happy, blessed and excited of what's going to happen next. I got to experience the presence of the Lord during this journey. I took this three days to actually find out things that I was yearning to know. The talks made me reflect in every area of my life. As the last day ended it was sad to say goodbye to all my new friends I got to meet.



Selfie Bak ku Teh Session

After choice 101, I was so thrilled we had a Whatsapp group to reconnect us again woo-hoo!! I later got to meet my fellow participants and other choicees. We organized a night out for fellowship with a Bak Ku Teh session and it was amazing, and not forgetting dessert, we had my favorite ice cream and waffles. The interaction we had was amazing. We clicked right away.  
Desert time







Just us having a great time for dessert

Sharing this time with people who share the same faith was great and the friendship that was built is wonderful. I am truly glad I went for Choice. If I could turn the clock back I would still want to join Choice again. It was the best choice I made... no regrets.
