    Relative Lull in Gaza as UN Calls for Cease-Fire - ABC News

    In Other Words.. It's All BS. Apparently There Are More Than One 'Terrorist' Group, Not Just Hamas.. If You're Calling For A Ceasefire, Where There Are More Than One Group In Gaza Capable Of Negating The Ceasefire On Behalf Of Everyone Else- You're Being Deceptive. A Ceasefire Is Impossible. -- At The Same Time, So Is Lasting Peace. Demilitarization Can Only Ever Be Short-term, If You Quarantine The Entire Population, Which Guarantees That Large Numbers Of Civilian Casualties Occur. This Also Guarantees That Palestinian/Muslim Civilians, Who Have Lost Loved Ones, Resent Israelis Altogether. It Creates Even More Opportunities For Groups To Want To Militarize/Protect/Avenge Themselves Against Israel.. And The US, For Funding This Terror Cycle. Expect War, And More War; It Will Not Be Forgiven Of Us In This Generation, Nor The Next. Things Like 9/11 And The Boston Bombings Will Continue To Occur.

    Right. Why is the title of this thread "Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit" ?

    I was actually shocked to see that the title came from a Christian! I was like "What? What evidence did Savagewind find from the Bible that the Holy Spirit has blasphemed?!"

    Back to topic. You are right Savagewind. However I am surprised that US just asked for peace rather than attacking the country for it, like it did with Iraq and Afghanistan."

    I didn't say the Holy Spirit blasphemes. I don't know what is going on here. Does anyone?

    Sorry again Savagewind. I came to this thread from the home page and the title had your name written underneath it. I didn't realise until now that the name under the thread titles in the home page refers to the last poster and not the OP! Anyway I just can't stop laughing at my mistake!

    Yes! It's good to learn the ways of forum. For the longest time I did not know there is an ap for finding the last post you read on a thread. I was so happy when I found it! LOL! (It is the arrow on the left.)

    Obviously, the Holy Spirit is not capable of blasphemy.. If you are charged with blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, what are you being charged with?

    Savagewind.. I am available for questioning; do not sidestep me to receive the intent of the OP from others. It is disrespectful and nonsensical. If you aren't willing to read a few lines, because they are in initial Caps, don't (and keep that to yourself). But if you neglect the OP, neglect responding or questioning those who are willing.

    I didn't get your question. Are you saying that I was charged with blaspheming against the Holy Spirit? If yes then no. I thought you were saying that the Holy Spirit has blasphemed when I just read your title.

    To see how many actually understand what blaspheming the Holy Spirit is. It is a grammatically correct title; nevermind those who are struggling with that.

    Not necessarily. It was a hypothetical question. Do you know what being charged with that would mean? If not, you do not know what thoughts and actions qualify. The OP presents a clue, that if read by a Christian, could be gleaned. However, it might not prove a worthy clue, even for most Christians. I am determining that now.

    Maybe I didn't understand that your question was hypothetical because I am not good at English. That's why instead of admitting it I asked you to clarify it. And yes I have very shallow knowledge of Christianity.

    It is impossible for a believer to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, if they do, then they never really believed rightly anyway. It was spoken to those who witnessed a healing miracle by Jesus, and then, afterwords, they equated it to an evil act, mostly because of their own religious/lawful pride. This act of blaspheme is simply calling the workings of an absolute good an evil event. This is one of the great examples of why Jesus came, to fulfill The Law with the right understanding of The Law.

    Having just come back to the forum I made the same mistake. I could have sworn there was a button to do that but I couldn't find it for the life of me. Took me a few days :help:
