The true Church of Christ was started by Christ, the Protestant churches were started in the 16th century and later by ordinary men. Anything that blasphemies the Holy Spirit will not ever be forgiven. It has reference to the personal appropriation of the Christian salvation, and aims to give all glory to Christ, by declaring that the sinner is justified before God (i.e. is acquitted of guilt, and declared righteous) solely on the ground of the all-sufficient merits of Christ as apprehended by a living faith, in opposition to the theory - then prevalent, and substantially sanctioned by the Council of Trent - which makes faith and good works co-ordinate sources of justification, laying the chief stress upon works.
