    Blasphemy is unforgivable? Is that what scripture says?

    What exactly is blasphemy ... can you give some examples of modern day blasphemous acts?

    If it is UNFORGIVABLE, why is it not oh so very clear (to me), what actions, thoughts, etc., qualify a person for this end?

    Please help me understand, i could have committed a blasphemous act and not even be aware of it! :eeek:

    :heart:

    Okay Kemetstry ... thanks for this ... but give me something, if you can, that has been prophesied (in our day) and folk denied it was a "Godly Act."

    Would asking if God exists be blasphemy? I mean, to really question it in one's own mind. To wonder and ask, if there's a heaven or a hell ... would this be considered blasphemous?

    Thanks :)

    Blasphemy is any act that is a direct condemnation of God after salvation. In other words, if you are saved and have been baptised in the Holy Spirit, and then deny God as the foudntation fo your life, then that is blaspheme. But be very careful about the implications of my statement. It takes more than just SAYING you deny him.

    To make it clearer...Being a preacher and then walk away from the p[ulpit to become a Satan worshipper. Anouther one is suicide. It is the one sin that you cannot ask for forgiveness or repent after it is committed.

    Just my views as i pass through.

    Thanks Dnommo for joining in on this topic.

    Okay Dnommo ... am I understanding you properly, that only a person who "once believed" can be guilty of blasphemy?

    In the example you provided ... if the Minister walked away from his pulpit because he didn't want to Minister anymore ... would that be blasphemy ... or does it take the extreme of going on to serve the devil added on ... for it to be considered blasphemy? Would it be blasphemy if a Baptist Minister became a Muslim "Minister" ?

    I and most folk aren't Ministers ... so if you could, give an example of blasphemy that could be applied to the every day person. Are there blasphemous acts being committed every day? If so, name a few for me please.

    For blasphemy to be such a "major" sin, it doesn't seem easy to pinpoint that one has committed it.

    Thanks,

    Destee

    that's because very few people have ever actually blasphemed. I used a minister as an example simply because it would be the extreme measure but YES, it involves more than just leaving the pulpit. Anyone who has accepted Chirst as their personal Saviour, is infilled with the Holy Ghost and then denies Christ to worship the Devil, is blasphemous. Just leaving the church is not for there still is room for repentance but to practice Satan worship is a true abomination to God.

    You are right about one thing. Because it is so critical that it makes it difficult to imagine someone ever experiencing it.

    Good Point.

    According to Smith's Bible Dictionary the word "blasphemy" - in its technical English sense - signifies the speaking of evil of God, and in this sense it is found in Psalms 74:18; Isaiah 52:5; Romans 2:24, etc. But according to its derivation it may mean any species of calumny and abuse (see 1 Kings 21:10; Acts 18:10; Jude 9, etc.). Blasphemy was punished by stoning, which was inflicted on the son of Shelomith (Leviticus 24:11). On this charge both Jesus and St. Stephen were condemned to death by the Jews.

    The blasphemy against the Holy Ghost (Matthew 12:32; Mark 3:28), consisted in attributing to the power of Satan to those unquestionable miracles that Jesus performed by "the finger of God" and the power of the Holy Spirit. It is plainly such a state of willful, determined opposition to God and the Holy spirit that no efforts will avail to lead to repentance. Among the Jews it was a sin against God answering to treason in our times...

    Thank You Brother Aqil ... :love:

    I looked up the word "calumny" and found the following:

    In its more commonly accepted signification it means the unjust damaging of the good name of another by imputing to him a crime or fault of which he is not guilty.

    So someone who has done this (and that could be many folk) have committed blasphemy?

    Your 2nd paragraph speaks of Jesus and the miracles he performed being credited to Satan, would be considered blasphemy. Many Christians give credit to the "miracles" in their life to Jesus / God. If someone tells them that it was not God, then they have committed blasphemy? Or is the information you provided above speaking only of the miracles Jesus performed during his life?

    I'm really looking for every day examples of blasphemy. For example, if i were looking for examples of every day sin, one might say, "lying, stealing, adultery, etc."

    Can you give me some specific examples of blasphemy?

    :heart:
