The opening phrase DIA TOUTO (because of this)
unmistakably connects this statement to the preceding
verses. The Pharisees attributed Jesus good deeds to
Satan, they had called good, evil. When a person, not
through ignorance or misunderstanding, but through
hostility calls good, evil and therefore makes their
evil, good that person has put himself in a state
which prevents forgiveness. By remaining in this
state, they are unable to repent and come to God,
therefore they are unforgivable. All things are
forgivable, but to be forgiven, you need to
acknowledge your need of forgiveness which is
something that someone who has substituted Good for
Evil cannot do.
