Blasphemy is the word you are looking for. It is the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.

sacrilege means to take something that is holy or sacred and use it for your own purposes. I.e. stealing the cup they use for communion at a catholic church and using it to drink kool-aid.

Belittle is to insult. Blaspheme is to negate the existence/authority or claim it as your own.

It's speaking about God with contempt, hatred or disdain. True blasphemy is verbally abusing the God who loves you, or doing the equivalent actions or gestures. God forgives blasphemy, and tries to do something about the separation. But the true blasphemer won't accept that forgiveness, as if to say: "Let me get this right -- you forgive me?? HA !! What nerve!". And so they seal their future. The bigger problem is that too often others join in the harangue, and when that happens, those others are also separated from God.

Strawberrygirl, it has occurred to me that some of a certain person who disdains God so blatantly is in that state of sin. Have they crossed our paths for sound advice? You and I know there is no coincidence with God. Oh my, then I shall intercede even more for that person to grow and learn. I am scared for him. Oh my a perfect example of blasphemy! This is my first encounter I've been so sheltered because I've never seen such anger towards God even amongst the thousands of prisoners in jail. Wow I know you know who I am referring! Wow
