TWENTY-FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST –  BLASPHEMY

Every mortal sin, as the Apostle says, dishonors God. ”By transgression of the law, thou dishonorest God.” (Rom. ii. 23.) Other sins dishonor God indirectly by the violation of his law; but blasphemy dishonors him directly by the profanation of his most holy name.
