What God hates

in #palnet3 months ago

"Six things the Lord hates, and even seven are abominable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, the heart that plots wicked thoughts, the feet that rush to evil, the false witness, who says lies, and he who sows discord among brothers. "

God clearly said that He hated these things, and we should also include them in the list of things that we hate. It was not the first time that God declared that He hated something. If we go to the book of Deuteronomy 16:22, we will read the following: neither will you lift up a statue, which the Lord your God hates. God hates any kind of idol, or anything that occupies in our hearts the place that only belongs to Him. A great messianic psalm, Psalm 45: 7 says: You have loved justice and hated evil. One follows the other as night follows day. In the book of Revelation 2: 6, God said to the early church: But you have this: that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. It is that, dear listener, God loves, but also detests. God is love, but for the same reason, he can hate. And the Holy Scriptures present their arguments, that is, they state their case.

The number seven in the Bible does not indicate perfection but what is complete. God experiences complete hatred for these things, which are all works of sinful human nature. There are things that reveal total depravity and complete degradation of human species. God has recorded that he hates these things. That old conception of God as a senile and sentimental old man who cries but does not act, and who simply closes his eyes to the sins of humanity and is tolerant of evil, and that he forgives because he does not have the courage, has already been left behind. or the strength to punish sin. Let us remember that God says: "I love" but He also says. "I hate".
