[UPDATED, January 16, 2007]
There is an ad on many of the bigger blogs that links to a site called "The Blasphemy Challenge." On this site, people are offered the chance to receive a free DVD of a movie called "The God Who Wasn't There." The catch is that you have to send a video of yourself blaspheming the Holy Spirit. If you are one of the first 1001 people to do this, you will receive a free DVD.
People, don't do this.
God is real. Jesus Christ does not lie. Jesus says that there is no forgiveness for those who blaspheme the Holy Spirit.
Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.I don't know if the person conducting The Blasphemy Challenge is the devil, or just some idiot. What I do know is that it isn't worth it. It may seem like a joke. It is not a joke. Jesus means what He says.
A free DVD of this movie is not worth eternity in hell. It pains me even to have to write such a thing, but I don't want to have missed an opportunity to help even one person see the truth.
God loves you. He wants you in heaven with Him once your time on earth is over. Don't throw your soul away over this kind of foolishness.
