BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST

Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost

These two lines are key to understanding this matter:

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.  Psalms 138:2

Those that blasphemed the name of God were stoned to death.  How much more so the reproof for those that blaspheme his word which he magnified above all his name!

Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is not against a person; it is a sin against the doctrine of God; the power of God which is his word.  Consider these lines in Mark:

Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.  Mark 3:30

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.  John 6:63
