"Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
And whosover speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come."
There has been a great deal of fruitless controversy among orthodox Christians concerning the subject of the Unpardonable Sin. In occult philosophy, we are given the following logical explanation:
Jehovah is the Highest Initiate of the Moon Period, the ruler of the Angels, who during the present Day of Manifestation work with our humanity through the Moon. He is the author of generation and the prime factor in gestation, the giver of offspring to man and to beast, using the lunar ray as his vehicle of work during the times which are propitious to generation. Jehovah is a jealous God, jealous of His prerogative, and, therefore, when man ate of the tree of knowledge and took the matter of generation into his own hands, He expelled him from Paradise to wander in the wilderness of the world. There was no forgiveness. He must expiate it in travail and in pain, reaping the fruit of his transgression.
Before the Fall, humanity had not known either good or evil. They had done what they were told, and nothing else. By taking matters into their own hands, and by the pain and the sorrow which followed their transgression, they learned the difference between good and evil: they became capable of choice. They acquired prerogative. This is the great privilege which more than compensates for the suffering and sorrow man has endured in expiation of that offense against the Law of Life, which lies in performing the creative act when the stellar rays are unpropitious, thus causing painful parturition, and a multitude of other diseases to which humanity is heir today.
In this connection it may be mentioned that the Moon is the ruler of the sign Cancer, and that cancer, in its malignant form, admits no cure, no matter how many remedies science may bring forward from time to time. Investigation in the lives of persons who suffer from this disease has proved in every case that the one involved has been sensual in the extreme during previous lives, though this is not to say that this is a law, since a sufficient number of investigations have not been made to establish it. It is, nevertheless, significant, that Jehovah, the Holy Spirit, rules generative functions through the Moon, that the Moon governs Cancer, and that those who abuse the sex function in a very marked and bestial degree are later afflicted with the disease called cancer: that this is incurable and thus bears out the saying in the Bible that all things may be forgiven save the sin against the Holy Spirit.
One who has never known the torment of temptation cannot realize the position of one who has fallen. Christ, Himself, felt in the body of Jesus all the passion and all the temptations to which we ourselves are subject, and it is stated that this was for the purpose of making Him more merciful unto us as a High Priest. That He was tempted, proves that temptation in itself is not sin. It is the yielding that is sin.
