Four great sins


Four sins are so great that "Gd will not provide a person with the means for repentance, due to the gravity of his sin."

These are:
One who causes the masses to sin, or to desist from a mitzvah;
One who leads someone from a good path to a bad one;
One who sees his child, or anyone he could inflence, going to a bad path, and does not protest;
One who says, 'I will sin and repent', or 'I will sin and Yom Kippur will atone.'

(Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Repentance 4:1)
