There are few more hurtful sounds than hearing a loved one being slandered. And blasphemy is slander against God, and it ought to be offensive to those who love Jesus. As we saw yesterday, arrogance and slander walk darkly together; and today, we see that blasphemy and ignorance are linked. Indeed, anybody who had a full understanding for the awesomeness of Almighty God, with His limitless power to strengthen the church and destroy the wicked, would hardly dare to offend His honour. So, blasphemy will thrive where there is ignorance of God, His Word and His ways.
