    Mark 3:29 says: "but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation"

    Dr Stanley talks about the unpardonable sin

    Now, is the unpardonable simply rejecting salvation? If so - then would a baby be guilty of rejecting? If not, then his sins would then be pardoned based on the "age of accountability"

    I'll give it a shot.
    I believe blasphemy is the unpardonable sin. I define that as attributing the works of God to Satan. By the time someone gets to that point, he has crossed the point of no return. The worst condemnation God can pronounce on one is to leave him alone.

    The sin of rejecting Jesus is forgivable. God does it all the time to those who repent of it and trust Christ.

    As far as infants and children, I believe they are safe

    Rejecting the beckoning of the Holy Spirit to me also means you have rejected but at what time does it become the unpardonable sin? When physical death occurs.
