"Blasphemy Challenge" Encourages People to Curse God

An internet challenge is calling upon people to post a clip of them cursing God or rejecting the Holy Spirit’s work in their lives. The spcalled "Blasphemy Challenge” is a way to promote atheism, according to promoters.

 

Promoters are even sending free DVD documentaries against Christianity to teens who complete the challenge and post their video online. "It (the blasphemy challenge) exposes the crock that is Christian doctrine,” one of the project's organizers told Fox News.

 

The challenge comes from Mark 3:29 when Jesus says, “whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin.”

 

Biblically, blasphemy was a term used against the leaders who personally encountered Jesus and refused to call him Messiah and they accused him of a worker of Satan.

 

"The online atheists and teens who are into the blasphemy challenge are almost exclusively opposed to Christianity," said Perri Frost, a high school senior. "There are almost no complaints against other faiths. Virtually all of the atheists rail against Christianity only."
