Guilty of an eternal sin (enoco estin aiwniou amarthmato). The genitive of the penalty occurs here with enoco. In saying that Jesus had an unclean spirit (verse Matthew 30 ) they had attributed to the devil the work of the Holy Spirit. This is the unpardonable sin and it can be committed today by men who call the work of Christ the work of the devil, Nietzsche may be cited as an instance in point. Those who hope for a second probation hereafter may ponder carefully how a soul that eternally sins in such an environment can ever repent. That is eternal punishment. The text here is amarthmato (sin), not krisew (judgment), as the Textus Receptus has it.
