Dictionary Mode: easton:Blasphemy
Blasphemy @ In the sense of speaking evil of God this word is found in Psalms:74:18; Isaiah:52:5; Romans:2:24; Revelation:13:1 Revelation:13:6 Revelation:16:9-11, 21. It denotes also any kind of calumny, or evil-speaking, or abuse (kjvKings:21:10; Acts:13:45 Acts:18:6, etc.). Our Lord was accused of blasphemy when he claimed to be the Son of God Matthew:26:65; comp. Matthew:9:3; Mark:2:7). They who deny his Messiahship blaspheme Jesus Luke:22:65; John:10:36). Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost Matthew:12:31-32; Mark:3:28-29; Luke:12:10) is regarded by some as a continued and obstinate rejection of the gospel, and hence is an unpardonable sin, simply because as long as a sinner remains in unbelief he voluntarily excludes himself from pardon. Others regard the expression as designating the sin of attributing to the power of Satan those miracles which Christ performed, or generally those works which are the result of the Spirit's agency.
