"No. God forgave only those that didn't know what they were doing..."

Right.. but severe depressives know what they are doing. They also know they are taking the easy way out by taking medication instead of dealing with the problem.

My point comes from what did severe depressives do 300 or 3000 years ago. They either overcame it or they scummbed to it.

Actually speaking against the Holy Spirit and "not forgiving" as you put it are two totally different things.

For instance anyone who sins is rejecting the Holy Spirit.. God says that when we take the Holy Spirit into our hearts we know that sin is bad and that we shouldn't do it.. therefore when we fall down we are ignoring that Holy Spirit.

Again you are using your quotes out of context.

So since people are born "blind" as you put it.. blind in intself means you don't have the mental capacity to comphrened then you must believe that people are born for the sole purpose not of having to live up to God's word but for the only reason to commit acts of sin against others for some greater purpose.

"God judges based on how one's own Spirit compares to the Holy Spirit. Those are forgiven as the blind are, unless they have effectively rejected the Holy Spirit."

So then there are those who are blind and then there are those who reject? There is nothing inbetween?

Actually it's who are reading passages to fit your own beliefs. Taking things out of context. If you are so against faith healers you must of been against Jesus as well. Jesus was a faith healer.

They never overcame organic disease.

Not forgiving can be a rejection of the Holy Spirit. Speaking against the Holy Spirit, means rejection of the Holy Spirit.

"Jesus was a faith healer."

No. God healed, because He had the power to. All else is in accord with the parable of Gen 3, man is to live by their own works. That includes healing.
