If I were to make a list of the worst, most evil things that a person can do in this world, it would include murder, child abuse, torture and such.

But it is interesting that when the Almighty choose to make a list of seven specific sins, it is a much different list. Many of the things He listed are not things that we in America even consider wrong at all, surely not "an abomination to God". Yet this is what He wanted us to know:

  • "There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him;
  • Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
  • a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil,
  • A false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers." Proverbs 6:16-19
Wow, "hates & abomination" are very powerful adjectives! What did He deem important enough to list first? Haughty eyes. There is an entire culture in America today that actually reveres and strives to achieve "haughty eyes", arrogant, prideful, hateful and threatening personas, all of which are condemned in the Word of God. It sells records, fashion, makeup, perfume/cologne and other things. It is even the demeanor of choice for many "Christian" recording artists on their album covers - Christian's who are supposed to be the light of the world Matthew 5:14; commanded to "not be conformed to this world", but "transformed" into the likeness of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Romans 12:2, 2 Corinthians 2:18; commanded to be "holy" as He is Holy. 1 Peter 1:16; "what fellowship does light have with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:15

Again I remind you that since God made everything that is and holds ALL power, He has the right to make all the rules. As His creation, we are fools to think that because time has passed since the Bible was put in print that we have the right to change the rules He gave us. Fools because we may live our lives according to the changes we ourselves have made to His rules, but that in no way will change His judgment in the end. We can't even make ourselves a bit taller or add an hour to our lives, and we think because we are "modern man" that we have the power and authority to change His laws? He gave us His eternal world of truth and told us clearly:

"Heaven and earth will pass away, but My worlds shall not pass away." Matthew 24:35

This is not to say that murder and other things aren't wicked and powerfully condemned by God and will have eternal consequences if not repented for from a contrite heart and then one asks Jesus to be their Savior.

The Word of God tells us that any sin separates us from God and this is why we need a Savior - someone to pay the price to redeem us from the penalty of our sins so we can return to God and spend eternity in heaven with Him, instead of an eternity of punishment in hell. Praise God that Jesus Christ was willing and able to do this for us! Let us be sure that we have fully repented for all the sin in our lives and asked Jesus to be our Savior before we close our eyes tonight. No one is promised tomorrow. He also commands us to be immersed in water baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. That is no more "optional" for us to obey than the repenting and taking Jesus as our Savior. It is a commandment so do it with the same urgency that you ask Him to save you with.

It is my fervent prayer that every person visiting this blog will be saved. I pray for each of you often and ask that our loving Heavenly Father wraps you in His love and that you choose to live in His amazing love forever. I am so looking forward to meeting you in heaven one day! You are so precious to Him! He longs for you and is calling to you to come to Him with all your hearts. If I can help you in any way, please post or e-mail me!
