What if an artist created a ‘blasphemous’ painting, sold it, and used the money to save the life of someone?

I’m just being provocative really, but it’s an interesting ethical / moral dilemma.

I heard an artist speak the other week, he had created paintings that included religious imagery, Hindu, I believe. But those paintings had caused a religious backlash. There’s been many instances of this, but I was listening to him, and just wondering, what if he sold these blasphemous paintings, and used to money to help people, would they still be blasphemous?
