What Does God Hate?
- Edward C. Miller
- God abhors the imaginings of the wicked.
- They are a pathway to habits, which in turn are a pathway to servitude, and servitude is a pathway to death: ″The price of sin is death″ (Romans 6:23).
- In the fifth place, the Bible teaches that God despises feet that are quick to go to evil and cause trouble.
- If a person continues to nurture and feed their evil ideas and imagination, it will ultimately lead to wicked behaviors.
There are six things that the Lord abhors, and seven that repulse him: eyes that are proud, a tongue that lies, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies, and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. ″Haughty eyes″ are one of the seven things that the Lord abhors.
What are ‘the things that God Hates?
One who sows strife within a family is one of the seven things that God despises, along with arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plans evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours forth lies, and feet that race to do wrong. Then, what exactly are ″the things that God hates″?
What does the Bible say about hatred?
Before you start pounding me over the head with a hundred scriptures about love, let me explain how hatred is portrayed in the Bible. First, you must acknowledge that there is evil in the world and that God abhors it. This is stated in the 22nd verse of Deuteronomy. ″Never erect holy pillars for the sake of worship, for the LORD your God despises those things.″ (NLT)
Why does the Bible mention things that God hates while also pronouncing love?
- Why does the Bible state that God is a loving God, yet then go on to talk about all the things that he despises?
- It is true that the Bible describes things that God detests; but, it also reveals to us the numerous loving reasons why we need to be aware of these things.
- The sin that causes our separation from God is something that God despises, yet that is precisely why He sent his son, Jesus.
Is there any sin in the Bible that God hates more?
There are perhaps no other crimes specified in the Bible that are punished more strongly than the sin of needlessly repeating the flaws of other people. This is because the sin of needlessly repeating the faults of other people is arguably the most common sin. There is perhaps nothing more abhorrent in God’s eyes than this. In Titus chapter 3, verse 2, it reads, ″Speak ill of no man.″
