Can Christian – Believer Blasphemy God?
Bible Reading: Romans 2:17-24NIV
“Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and boast in God; 18 if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law; if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? As it is written: “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”
Introduction – The Meaning of the Word “Blasphemy”
English Dictionary defined the word ‘Blasphemy” as “irreverence toward something considered sacred or inviolable”. It also defined it as “the act of insulting o showing contempt or lack of reverence for any religion’s deity.” It is also means “the act of claiming the attributes of a deity.”
However, Cambridge Dictionary defined is as “something that you say or do that shows you do not respect God or a religion”.
In my own view, “Blasphemy” is a foolish act of not show respect to God the Creator, and such act is a rebellion against the Creator. There are thousands of so-called believers – Christians today that are blasphemy God in their speech, thoughts and actions. The common way that many Christians – believers are blasphemy God today is through their attitudes in the society.
How Can Christian – Believer Blasphemy God?
Christian – Believer can Blasphemy God in any of the following ways:
Number One- Not doing what you are teaching or preaching – Romans 2:20-24 NIV
“An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? As it is written: “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”
Number Two – Living a sinful life – Romans 2:22-23
Number Three – Ungodly Dressing – Romans 2:25-29
Our society today is full of ungodly dressings. These dressings are practices majorly be so-called Christians – believers. Most of churches today allow their members to dress abnormal. Half naked, showing breast, etc. all these are blasphemy God the Creator.
“Circumcision has value if you observe the law, but if you break the law, you have become as though you had not been circumcised. So then, if those who are not circumcised keep the law’s requirements, will they not be regarded as though they were circumcised? The one who is not circumcised physically and yet obeys the law will condemn you who, even though you have the written code and circumcision, are a lawbreaker. A person is not a Jew who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a person’s praise is not from other people, but from God.” Romans 2:25-29NIV
Many of ungodly dressings and acts are introduced by so-called Christians – believers of 20th century. Although, such people are generations of Sodom and Gomorrah as long as they are involving in doing it. The Bible confirm it that, those that are NOT doing it, but are happy or support the people that are doing it, all have the same consequence in the last day.
“Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:28-32
Beloved, are you NOT among them that blasphemy God through your dressing and actions? Think of yourself! Look yourself! What you thoughts that does NOT mean, you will discover at the judgment DAY of God that it is more than MEAN unto GOD!
