One more thought on the subject of blasphemy. Roman Emperor Constantine was a pagan before his conversion to Christianity.

There were statues of him in Pagan temples throughout the roman empire. He, himself, was a God I think - most emperors were considered deities.

You really can't get more blasphemous than that, and yet now he is a saint in the Christian church.

There is forgiveness through Christ and one can become sanctified - even with a history of blasphemy.

There is evidence of this throughout the church.
