Additional Links

A man is guilty of blasphemy, when he speaks of God, or his attributes, injuriously; when he calumniously ascribe such qualities to him as do not belong to him, or robs him of those which do. The law sentenced blasphemers to death, Leviticus 24:12-16 . In a lower sense, men are said to be blasphemed when abused by calumnious and reviling words, 1 Kings 21:10; Acts 6:11 .
