| | Hi,
I saw a response to this question which I think is exactly my response...
Does this help?
Look at the context of the passage... the Pharisees were seeing incredible works being done by Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit, yet were unwilling to believe He was who He claimed He was mostly because He didn't agree with them on everything (Sabbath, etc) and because they were afraid of losing their power and position (John 11:46-53). It was the Pharisees who had a set heart against Jesus and would not repent.
This is a set position of the heart, not a momentary lapse of judgement. I would say that if you are this worried that you commited the unpardonable sin, it is extraordinarilly unlikely that you have.
