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.

Matthew 12:31-32

But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. Mark 3:29

But unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven. Luke 12:10

Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.Matthew 10:33
