Is insulting the bible the same as blaspheming against the Holy Spirit?

A few months ago I was very upset because things in my life were not well, so I insulted the bible with profanity, but months passed and everything in my life improved a lot, but I think insulting the bible is the same as Sin against the Holy Spirit, for the bible was revealed by the Holy Spirit. Forgive me, I'm not American, I'm German, but I like how the Americans explain and teach.

    The bible is God's words. It is not a thing created by the holy spirit. God's words was recorded by people inspired who were lead by the holy spirit.

    I wouldn't be so comfortable to assume that your life improved because you curse a book. How do you know it wasn't Satan that put pressure on you until you did what he was pleased with? Problems come because Satan was able to put pressure on you.

    Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is an example already given in the bible. See Matthew 12: 24- 25.

    The example there is that Jesus healed a person via the power of God (Holy Spirit). But the Pharisees claim that healing came from Satan.

    Then in Matthew 12:31, Jesus talks about the unpardonable sin.

    The Holy spirit is only given to born again believers. It is the Holy spirit that marks a person as belonging to God.

    Do you really want to get rid of the holy spirit, so that you can go back to staying dammed?

    John 10:28: ".......No one can snatch them out of My hand." . Your salvation cannot be stolen away, it can be rejected by yourself.

    I believe this is what it means by unpardonable sin. I.E. you have done something on purpose to with the aim of getting rid of the holy spirit.

  • No.

    The Bible is a book and has nothing to do with your body.

    Blaspheming the holy spirit means denying its existence, not swearing at or insulting an object containing years of urban legends which have been adjusted to suit someone's agenda.

    There is no god, no holy spirit, no heaven, and no hell so you can stop worrying. You do, however, need to ask yourself why you would believe in such complete nonsense.

    According to Christians you are going straight to hell if you commit Blasphemy. God is thin skinned enough that after committing Blasphemy you can't be saved.
