“To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.” (Titus 1:15-16, NKJV)
As you explore the Bible you will find many things God hate; but sin of any kind is abominable, detestable and loathsome to the Almighty God. Abomination is used to express the Bible’s strongest hatred for wickedness. God is so holy he cannot look upon sin, in fact, it is our iniquities that separate us from Him according to Isaiah 59:1-2. Sin, is anything contrary to His Word.
If God commands it, then it must be obeyed, otherwise there will be consequences for disobedience. Many people are deceived into believing that God is only loving and merciful. And to know that He is Love is wonderful for 1st John 4:8b declares that God is Love; but many fail to explain that God is also “just” and He must punish sin. It is through God’s mercy, does He not desire to punish us; this is why He has provided instructions for the Christian to follow in order to avoid His wrath. It is rather amazing that everything we as Christians need to know to survive in this dark desolate and wicked world is the last place many will seek for guidance. Instead, they listen to liberals who dictate “Peace, Love and Power to the People!” But offer no glory to God, no reference of God and no trust in God.
They trot around slinging fairy dust, hoping to create a perfect world by aborting innocent babies and destroying families through smokescreens called “planned parenthood” and “gay pride.” Now these things are acceptable to the world, but for those who are professing salvation through Jesus Christ, these are sinful and abominable. If any of you practice these, you are not God’s children, for Jesus said, “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father
you want to do” (John 8:44, NKJV). In spite of what the liberal-minded, un-regenerated heathens have convinced you to believe that we are all God’s children, this is so distant from the truth. We are all His creations, but not all are His children; and the Apostle John makes this very clear in 1st John 3:7-9, “Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He [God] is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning…whoever has been born of God does not sin…”
Things That God Hates
“These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:” (Proverb 6:16)
Although we will not examine all of the hated things that are abominable to God, we will cover a couple that are quite prevalent and are becoming more vocal today in our society and are major focus of mind manipulation. In the book of wisdom, Proverbs 6:16-19, King Solomon poetically expresses seven things that are an abomination to God, “…A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.” Permit me to highlight “hands that shed innocent blood.”
It is evident that Solomon is talking about murder, not as in self-defense, not as defending your country, but as in perhaps abortion. To abort an unborn child is a cruel and heinous act. It is abominable to God and there are truly consequences one will face. After talking with several women who have aborted babies, they have complained of suffering from nightmares of seeing their babies or hearing babies cry. They experience guilt that seems to never end, and suffer from self-hatred. This is torment; especially for a
Christian, because this is not the plan of God. Christians are being tricked into believing that they have a choice to whether they bring a life into the world or not. This is a scheme devised by the devil. The Bible clearly states that “hands that shed innocent blood” is abominable to God, which is indicative to not having a choice. Do you realize that God has a divine plan and purpose for everyone, and that God knows the appointed time a birth will take place? “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;” (Jeremiah 1:5, NKJV).
You have no idea who you aborted: an apostle, who would have established many churches; a prophet, who could have liberated many through edification, comfort and exhortation; an evangelist, who could have lead many to Christ; a pastor, who could have provided guidance and counsel to the people of God; a teacher, to teach the truth according the Word of God; a doctor, one to heal the sick; a lawyer, defend the poor; or just a wonderful person who could have brought you joy. Like the world, Christians are falling for the lie that this is a choice or “planned parenthood,” but in actuality this is infanticide, another form of genocide.
Genocide has been in effect since creation. It was Satan’s scheme to destroy mankind from the beginning, hence the Garden of Eden and the forbidden fruit escapade that propelled man into sin and death, causing a spiritual-genocide that would last for all eternity. In Exodus chapter one we read about the first actual recording of a genocidal undertaking. The “children of Israel were fruitful and increased abundantly, multiplied and grew exceedingly mighty; and the land was filled with them” (v.7). The king over Egypt saw the increase and grew fearful that the children of Israel might join their enemies in the event of a war.
So it was his civic duty to enslave the Israelites, forcing them to work rigorously. When they continued to increase in numbers, Pharaoh instructed the Hebrew midwives to kill all male newborns after the Hebrew women gave birth. In fear of God, the Hebrew midwives did not destroy the babies, instead they lied and declared that the women gave birth before they had arrived. “So Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, ‘every son who is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive” (Exodus 1:22, NKJV). Moses was not destroyed. His mother hid him for three months and when she could no longer hide him she placed him in an ark or basket daubed with asphalt and pitch, in hopes of him being adopted (Exodus 2:1-10). Adopted? Absolutely! Since Moses life would have been threatened living with his natural family, his mother gave him up for adoption and he became God’s voice and the liberator of the children of Israel. God’s plans are truly greater than our plans, “‘…For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV).
In a fascinating book written by George Grant, entitled Third Time Around: “A History of the Pro-Life Movement from the First Century to the Present,” he gives much detail about the origination of “planned parenthood” and the phrase “choice” when referring to abortion. In his chapter “Abominations and Admonitions: The Making of Modernism” he covers the view of progressivism and the most dangerous and influential branch being Malthusianism. “Thomas Malthus was a late eighteenth century professor of political economy whose mathematical theories convinced an entire generation of scientists, intellectuals, and social reformers that the world was facing an imminent economic crisis caused by unchecked human fertility” (1991, p. 121).
Grant cited an essay written by Malthus in 1798, he wrote: “All children born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desired level, must necessarily perish, unless room is made for them by the death of grown persons” (p. 122). How utter
ly absurd and absolutely selfish this statement is. His followers believed “that if Western Civilization were to survive, the physically unfit, the materially poor, the spiritually diseased, the racially inferior, and the mentally incompetent had to be eliminated” (p. 122). How did they propose to commit such a nefarious act? Some thought through political-restrict immigration, centralize planning, social welfare reform and constraints concerning citizenship. There were some who thought perhaps through technological-control agricultural production. But the majority of these Malthusians believed that the solution rested in “genetic-restrict or remove ‘bad racial stocks,’” through segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion: an attempt in selective breeding, in hopes to purify the bloodlines and improve the stock of the highest and most fit or “Aryan” race. (p. 122.).
Grant points out that Josef Stalin also incorporated Malthusianism into his brutal interpretation of Marxism: his Ukrainian triage, his collectivization of the Kulaks, and his Siberian genocide, quoting: “The greatest obstacle to the successful completion of the people’s revolution is the swarming of inferior races from the south and east.” During the early part of the Twentieth Century, Grant also reveals that in America, likewise,
Margaret Sanger made Malthusianism the cornerstone of her endeavors. According to Grant, she attempted to smuggle contraceptives into the country, send out obscene materials through the mail and advocate promiscuous sex and abortion. “She was thoroughly convinced that the ‘inferior races’ were in fact ‘human weeds’ and a ‘menace to civilization’” (p. 123). She believed that organized Christian charity to ethnic minorities and the poor was a “symptom of a malignant social disease” because it encouraged the prolificacy of “defective, delinquents, and dependents” revealed by Grant, (p. 124).
Margaret Sanger’s staff, the Committee on Marriage and the Home of the Federal Council of Churches in 1930, became the first major organization in history of Christendom to affirm the language and philosophy of “choice.” “Soon after, the Quakers, the Northern Presbyterians, the Congregational church, the Methodist-Episcopal church, and several Baptist denominations followed suit” (p. 125). What happened here? How were all these churches persuaded to follow such a wicked plan that is most certainly contrary to God’s command “thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13) and “hands that shed innocent blood is abominable to Him? It is clearly explained by Grant as the yielding to the “Balak Temptation” found in Numbers 22 through 35 (p.127).
In fear of defeat when confronted by the advancing armies of Israel, Balak sent for a diviner named Balaam, whom he believed could put a curse on the enormous group, so that he may be able to fight them and drive them away. Balaam was not permitted by the Lord to curse the people of Israel for they were blessed people. The oracles brought to Balak predicted that Israel was invincible from without, so he focused on conquering them from within. Without an army, diplomats and allies, Balak needed nothing but a way to tempt Israel away from its fidelity to God. The tactic was sex and the weapons were the most beautiful women in all of Moab. He sent them into the enemy’s camp and watched the people be hauled off into captivity by their own lust. “They were defeated by the compromise of their Biblical standards” (p. 125). So were the churches then and Christians today, both defeated by the compromising of Biblical standards. Having children is a sign of abundance and prosperity; “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them” (Psalm 127:3-5, NKJV).
Christians, be not deceived, abortion is wrong and contrary to the Word of God. People are being mind manipulated into believing this is progress. God is constant and true, He never changes nor does His Word. Imagine, your adult son and his pregnant wife deciding, because of their circumstances, (he works two jobs and she is pursuing a MBA and work for “Corporate America”) that an abortion is the best thing for them, without altering their lifestyle. As a Christian, would this not anger you on their decision? Would you not try to convince them that the family could pull together and help?
Their “choice” to wait later, when their schedules become more conducive to having a baby is selfishness and an ugly act of “planned parenthood.” Or how about your teenage daughter is pregnant and she decides not to tell you, but because of “choice” she can skip school, go down to the clinic, have an abortion and be in school the next day without you being the wiser, this is “planned parenthood.” Would this not break your heart if you found this out? Better yet finding out that the boy she was with wore a condom that broke during intercourse; and she was able to obtain this condom from the school nurse. Clearly this is a promotion of premarital sex and promiscuity, a sign of “Balak Temptation” in modern day. There will be consequences to pay, for “a good man obtains favor from the Lord, but a man of wicked intentions He will condemn” (Proverbs 12:2, NKJV).
In 1st Corinthians 6:9, the Apostle Paul asks a simple question: “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?” He proceeds in that scripture warning his readers to not be deceived for the following list provides types of people God will not permit into His kingdom. “ Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.” Just to be very clear, if you use to be any of these types of people and you received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and you have turned away from these wicked lifestyles, then you are a new creature and this does not apply to you. But if you are calling yourself a Christian and you are still living as any of these types “YOU WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD!” No matter what you may call yourself, your life has to line up with the Word of God.
What is quickly spreading today like wild fire in society is the abomination of homosexuality. It has risen from the closet of “naughty little secrets” to “right in your face America.” Homosexuals are not ashamed of their lifestyle, actually they flaunt it like it is their right to expose others to what they call “gay and lesbian pride.” And could you really blame them for it is becoming more and more acceptable in the world and even in some churches. They are on our television programs daily as funny little guys with witty sense of humor or as overly liberated women, recognizing their newfound identities. They are in our newspapers and magazines openly expressing who they are, why they are gay and why our children should be expose to this lifestyle. Our children are becoming less sensitive to that which God calls evil and hates, to the point of accepting this abomination as the norm.
To rebuke their lifestyles in the open is now being considered as a hate crime in some countries and in some states here in the USA, they are trying to pass similar laws; in
fact, a law has been passed through the state assembly in California already. As an issue, George Grant points out in Trial And Error, (1990) “Homosexuality has come out of the closet, marched through our communities, ravaged our young, and checked into the hospital. Unnatural relations between men and men or women and women was once considered ‘a psychosis’ and ‘a threat to the health of the nation.’ But now, even though millions of people are literally dying due to its twisted compulsions and filthy passions, homosexuality is being conferred a privileged ‘minority’ status – thus propagating its contagion all the more.”
Let us just see what God has to say about all this. In Romans 1:26-27, God calls the homosexual lifestyle “shameful” and unnatural. “…For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful…” The Apostle Paul writes this because the practice of homosexuality was prevalent in his day as well, due to paganism. In this revelation, God is revealing a shift in values when we examine the scriptures prior. As a result of God’s wrath on unrighteousness, we see all manner of evil evolving. In verses 24 and 25, God gives evildoers up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchange the truth of God for the lie “Value Shifting” (Philip, 015, p.13), and worship and serve the creature rather than the Creator.
First, God gave the unrighteous over to their wicked ways, but He did not give up on humanity. God will not force His creation to do what is right; it has to be a willful act. Giving the wicked over to their sins is bondage and they will suffer greatly. Second, God knows that those who are ungodly and unrighteous are well aware that what they are doing is wrong, but they choose to suppress the truth. Third, Value Shifting comes into play in a major way where it states that they exchange the truth of God for lies. That is to say what is good is now considered evil and what is evil is good. Then we see that the unrighteous worship and serve the creature [the world] rather than the Creator [God], this means that laws will be passed to protect homosexual rights and their perverse lifestyles and innocent people who speak up against it will go to jail. Instead of considering what God says on the matter, the world rather respond to the weaknesses of human nature. But if you read verse 27 very carefully you will notice something absolutely profound “Likewise also men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due”
(NKJV). Homosexuality is punishment. It is not fruitful nor is it honorable. Nothing good can come from the practice of it and any relationship to it. It is satanic and an abomination to God.
In an article entitled “Homosexual Teachers Emboldened by Marriage Law” in Battle Cry News Letter, January/February 2005 edition, “sodomite activists are pressuring the public schools there [Massachusetts] to talk more in the classrooms about homosexual relationships.” The biggest mistake the State of Massachusetts Supreme Court could have ever done was to legalize same-sex marriages. Now all types of evil and perverse requests are going to spawn from this unrighteous decision. Cited in the article “National Public Radio quoted one teacher who was delighted. She teaches 8th grade sex education and keeps a picture of her lesbian partner on her desk. In her class, she describes in graphic detail how two women can have sexual intercourse. She says she is emboldened, now that same-sex marriage is legal.” Enough Said. There are teachers who have threatened to quit before teaching from a homosexual curriculum. There are also books that are published by Alyson Publications that target kindergarteners to third grade readers: books like, “Heather Has Two Mommies,” “Daddy’s Roommate,” and “Gloria Goes to Gay Pride.”
There is a children’s video set to be sent to 61,000 U.S. schools in March 2005 that features very popular cartoon characters singing the 1979 hit song “We Are Family.” The problem with this particular video, Christian Conservative groups have issued a gay alert warning over it. They claim that the cartoon characters are being exploited to promote the acceptance of homosexuality. Apparently on the foundation’s Website, sponsoring this video has a tolerance pledge that asks people to respect the sexual identity of others. Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, who is quoted in the story, says, “their inclusion of the reference to ‘sexual identity’ within their ‘tolerance pledge’ is not only unnecessary but crosses a moral line” (Reuters, 2005).
Homosexuality and abortion are results of sexual immorality. Sexual immorality is generated from lust. Lust can be a strong desire for anything and when it is directed toward sex it is sinful and forbidden according to the Scriptures. “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when is finished, bringeth death” (James 1:15). How many people do you know who died from HIV/AIDS, which was once thought to be a “gay man’s disease?” According to statistics, deaths related to HIV/AIDS are on the rise. In 2004, 4.9 million people became infected by HIV/AIDS and more than 3 million people died from the disease, whereas 2.4 million people died in 2003, (USA Today, 2004). In most recent numbers 1.31 million pregnancies were terminated by abortion in the USA, (Abortion TV). Incest, adultery, homosexuality and fornication are all sinful and subjected to death. Abstaining from these evils will not only preserve your natural life, but it will also keep you from spiritual death.
