en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blasphemy Blasphemy is the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for a religious deity or the irreverence towards religious or holy persons or things. NT Biblical examples of blasphemy: Luke 5:21 20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? Luke 5:21 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. 6 But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, 7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? These are only two of the many occasions where Jesus was accused of blasphemy against God the Father. But, a close examination of each time Jesus was accused of this, it was never for His miracles, but for either claiming to have powers that belong to God the Father, or claiming to be the Son of God. Based on Biblical examples of blasphemy, I tend to believe that, to claim powers of the Holy Ghost, or spiritual gifts that I do not have, would constitute blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. What say you?
