I could see how a church might teach that calling oneself an atheist is the unforgivable sin.


I just don't understand that at all.
If I understand it correctly, faith and/or belief in God comes from the Holy Spirit. If the Holy Spirit hasn't seen fit to give a person that faith and/or belief, then how is it that it's the person that has committed an unforgivable sin?

Sounds like a no-win situation for the poor guy that's being ignored by the Holy Spirit. Like me. The Holy Spirit has, apparently, just happily passed me over.
