Q:

Sometimes I get very angry and upset, and I lash out at God and curse Him, although I know that's wrong. Have I committed the unpardonable sin? Is it too late for me to get my life straightened out with God?


A:

When you curse God, you are angry at Him, and you are condemning Him and telling Him He is wrong and you hate Him. More than that, you’re telling Him you don’t want anything to do with Him–and that is very serious. It tells me you’re on the wrong path in life–the path that leads only to Hell.

But listen: It’s never too late to turn to God. Yes, you may be angry at Him for some reason–but God loves you, and He yearns for you to be at peace with Him. He loves you so much that He sent His only Son into the world to die for your sins. You deserve to be cursed by God and condemned for your sins. But Christ took your curse upon Himself, and He was condemned in your place.

This is why I urge you to repent of your sins and turn to Christ. He has bridged the gap between us and God, and now He offers us God’s free gift of forgiveness and new life. The Bible says, “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).

Give your life to Christ, and let Him turn your anger into love–love for God, and love for others. Why stay on your present path even one more day? Instead, by faith open your heart to Christ’s transforming power. He can turn your cursing into praise, and your anger into joy.

    I just wish God was real! I believe when I get mad at God, I am really just mad at myself! If he is real … I sure haven’t seen anything that proves it

      Hi Vince,

      We appreciate your honesty. Since you brought up the idea of God’s existence, we’ll start with this:

      Think about a person you’ve talked to online or emailed but never met. How do you know that person really exists? You know because you’ve seen enough evidence to convince you of it — maybe a picture or hearing that person’s voice or knowing an acquaintance.

      The same is true with God. We believe in Him because He has given us enough evidence to prove that He exists. In other words, He hasn’t hidden Himself from us; instead, He has revealed Himself or made Himself known to us. God wants us to know Him—and has done everything He needs to do to make that possible.

      But how? One way is through the Bible, which is God’s Word to us. He has given it to us to better understand who He is and how He relates to us. It’s historically accurate with details confirmed by archaeology and non-Christian sources. It’s the most studied book in the world.

      Another way God has revealed Himself to us is through the physical world He created, with all of its beauty and complexity. Isn’t it more logical to believe God created it than to believe it happened by chance? The Bible says, “For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Romans 1:19-20).

      But God also revealed Himself to us in an even greater way: by coming to earth and becoming a man. That man was Jesus Christ—God revealed in human flesh, “the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15). Jesus was fully man but also fully God. He walked this earth and spent time with all kinds of people—from kings and hated government officials to prostitutes and lepers, the lowest of society.

      Still, some people will say science doesn’t support God’s existence because it can’t be proven through a chemical formula or some complex equation. But think about this: happiness, beauty and love can’t be proven or measured by a laboratory experiment, either, yet that doesn’t mean they aren’t real. In fact, many well-known and accomplished scientists are convinced that science alone can’t explain where we come from or why we’re here. They realize that science itself points to an all-wise, all-powerful Creator. The Bible says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands” (Psalm 19:1).

      All of these are ways God has revealed Himself to us, yet possibly the most powerful proof of His existence is how He changes people’s lives. He transforms us from the inside out, as millions of people all over the world have found. He gives us peace where there was once restlessness, and He makes us complete where we were once broken and unfulfilled. He gives us hope in the place of anger and bitterness. He calls to us, but we have to make the decision to let Him into our lives. He doesn’t force it. The Bible says in Jeremiah 29:13, “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”

    Thanks I have given my life to Christ and the devil hates it. I needed the encouragement

  3. Rebecca Stump says:

    I did this about 2 years ago. I was so afraid I had been separated from GOD forever. This came to me just last night when I started reading The Holy Spirit by Billy Graham. I could not bear the thought of never going home to Heaven. I read in the bible in Matt. where Jesus said about blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. But now I knew I am not separated from GOD. He is my Lord and Savior and next month I will be baptized. I had dedicated my life to Jesus last year and thanks be to GOD I am still his. Thank you so much that I reaffirmed my answer here.

  4. Mrs. Marshall says:

    One day I woke up very angry and I told GOD I would never pray, sing, dance in his name or glory. I refused to worship, pray, and cry at the same time. And it wasn’t because he didn’t give or take something from me. It was because I felt he didn’t hear me my prayer my crying out me searching for him.. Now I regret saying it I cried and prayed about…

  5. Stephen says:

    I cursed at god one night. can I be forgiven? I’ve been saved. is it to late for me?

  6. Mike says:

    I don’t want God in my life.

  7. Peyton says:

    Honestly, I’m not going to repent or apologize for hating god. He hasn’t done anything for me.

  8. Rosarie says:

    Thank you for answering this question. I have lashed out at God. I’ve been so angry with Him because it seems if I love something or someone He takes it from me. This love didn’t come between me and God. Why would He punish me by taking away love?

    I never in a million years would have believed He would forgive me for my anger and cursing.

    Thank you God for your love, grace and mercy!!

    Thank you sir for all that you do for God!
