That's a big incoherence I find with the Christian faith. That idea is completely inconsistent with a loving, forgiving and perfect G-d that administers perfect justice.

Any sin can be forgiven if the person truly repents...other than this one that the scripture speaks of. I really like popzaroo's explanation. True repentance and salvation is much more than simply believing and saying a simple prayer---it's just not that simple. If you murder someone, and just say "Oh I believe in Jesus and accept him into my heart", without a true repentant heart...you will still not gain entrance into the Kingdom.
If you don't believe in God and refuse to even speak to him, why would he ever allow you into his kingdom. If you do nothing but speak negatively of me, don't like me, curse me, and try to convince others that I am nothing, I would not open my door for you. Why is that so hard for people to understand?
