What are the Meanings of Blasfemar?

As blasphemy we call the act of saying blasphemy. A blasphemy, in this sense, is an injury that is uttered against a person or against God, the Virgin or the saints. The word, as such, comes from the late Latin blasphemāre, and this in turn from the Greek βλασφημεῖν (blasphemeín).

Blasfemar is used, above all, with a religious sense to refer to the act of offending God, the Virgin, the Holy Spirit or anything else related to God. As such, it is an act considered heretic, especially when it involves a statement that is contrary to faith. Blaspheming, in addition, in Christian doctrine, goes against the second commandment, which says “you will not take the name of God in vain.”

The greatest blasphemy, however, according to the Bible, is that which goes against the Holy Spirit. In this sense, Matthew warns: “Anyone who says a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but he who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, neither in this age nor in the age to come ”(12: 32).

Blaspheming, on the other hand, can also be used in a general sense, as equivalent to cursing or reproving, especially when referring to something that is considered worthy of great respect.

Synonyms of blaspheming, meanwhile, are cursing, vituperating, denying, imprecating, execrating or perjuring.

In English, blaspheming, when it has a religious sense, can be translated as to blaspheme. For example: “I never was blasphemed against the Holy Spirit .” On the other hand, when used in the sense of cursing or vituperating, it can be expressed as to curse: “ Why don’t you stop cursing my family? ” Also, when used with the meaning of swearing, it can be used to swear : ” I swear by my mother that I had nothing to do with it “.
