Romans 5:10, “for if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
There are people beyond redemption, but they are probably NOT who you think they are.
The answer to the question “is there anyone beyond redemption” is yes. However, it will be ONLY those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit, a specific sin, which is stated (blaspheme) by attributing the Spirit’s work to Satan or a word against the Holy Spirit, claiming He would lead a sinner to commit evil for example. These folks are beyond redemption because Jesus said that sin is unforgivable and without forgiveness redemption cannot be granted. This sin is committed mainly by religious sinners, not by unbelievers, because first you would have to believe the Holy Spirit exists and who He is, Satan exists and who he is.
So if you haven’t blasphemed the Holy Spirit, and there are some who have openly, you are not beyond redemption. Yes, even the worst murderers and serial rapists can be saved. It doesn’t mean however God will save every sinner, it just means that the verdict while being guilty doesn’t necessarily mean a pardon cannot be granted.
Some world religions out there cast Christianity as a perfectionist club. That you need to be self righteous FIRST before God will think about redeeming you. So they put the sinner through a series of tests, religious pomp and circumstance, and when they deem you worthy enough to be saved, God may just do so. How WRONG these religions are!!
Romans 5:8 teaches us that Jesus saves a sinner WHILE THEY ARE STILL SINNERS. This would pretty much refute the notion that the sinner needs to clean themselves up first or make themselves worthy to save, when Scripture teaches us that NO ONE IS WORTHY! Not a one! Salvation is never by self righteousness but by the righteousness of Christ.
So if you were jaded by someone who claims to be a Christian, seek your answers only from the word of God. Don’t take my word for it, read and study Scripture and you will see God’s granting of His mercy and grace to whom He wills, not to whom a religion wills. Let’s face it, if man held your salvation in their hands, they would cast you into hell unless you stroked their ego, they’d do this without shame or guilt. So be comforted, it is God who holds your salvation in His hand alone.
The very first lesson God gives upon a rebirth of a sinner, is to show you that you were NEVER beyond redemption even though your sin record was wicked, the evil things you did, etc. sent Jesus to the Cross to what? TO REDEEM YOU! Those who have been saved understand this. Those who haven’t will continue on in their self righteousness, and in the end, will find out how very wrong they were to do so, but at that point it will be too late.
So place your faith alone in Jesus, His work, His person, and you shall be saved! Again, there are people beyond redemption, but they are probably NOT who you think they are.
