Matthew 9:2-5 (KJV) That's Not Blasphemy

Matthew 9:2-5 (KJV)
And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? 
Apparently the scribes would not have thought it blasphemy to heal the man. To provide for him some temporary benefit (so long as it was not done on the Sabbath) would have been acceptable. To give to him a benefit that would last eternally, now this caused a stir.
The interesting thing is, neither could have been accomplished except it were accomplished through the power of God. It is no more in man to heal palsy than it is to forgive sins.
It is all of God or else it is all blasphemy.
