Will God be affected by the first abuse of the fascinated devotee?

[Shri Anil Antony asked: Paaadanamaskaaram Swami, Please give response to the following questions. At Your Divine Lotus Feet-anil. When a devotee fascinated to his own religion abuses the God of other religion (first abuse), and when a follower of universal religion retort back by abusing the God of fascinated devotee, such abuse will not touch the internal God present in the form of God and God does not mind it. The normally observed abuses are given below

God Muhammad: Married 9-year-old girl and killed many by violence

God Jesus: Could not save Himself from crucifixion

God Krishna: Danced with married Gopikas.

Will God be affected by the first abuse of the fascinated devotee? In this context, kindly also explain the essence of following words of Jesus. “Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come”.[Matthew 12:32]]

Swami replied:- Abuse to pacify the abusing person will not be mistaken by God. Abuse without such reason will make God furious. What Jesus told about the abuse of Holy Spirit belongs to the second option in which abuse is first given by a blind devotee without the initial abuse from anybody. This also means that if the incarnation is not recognized as God and is only recognized as a mere human being, the devoted-sinner is forgiven because the devoted-sinner might be ignorant. But, if a person recognizes the incarnation as God (Holy Spirit) and still abuses, such sinner will not be forgiven. Ignorance can be excused but not ego with knowledge.
