Blasphemy


BLASPHEMY

Blasphemy has a wider meaning. It can be someone claiming himself as a god. That was an accusation against Jesus by the Jewish leaders. Blasphemy can mean irreverence to God, insulting God’s representative, desecrating a sacred place or object, idolatry, or arrogance by denying faith in God. God instructed Moses, “Tell the Israelites: Anyone who blasphemes against God shall bear the penalty; whoever utters the name of the LORD in a curse shall be put to death” (Lev 24:15-16).
