An abomination in the Bible is a serious matter.
There are some things that God hates. So, what is abominable to our creator?
The definition of Abomination:
- A thing that causes disgust or hatred.
- A feeling of hatred.
Synonyms for Abomination: detestable – loathing – disgust – repugnance
One very serious abomination in the bible is eating unclean animals:
Leviticus 11:44 – I am the LORD your God, and you must dedicate yourselves to me and be holy, just as I am holy. Don’t become DISGUSTING by eating any of these unclean creatures.
Leviticus 11:46 – I have given these laws so that you will know what animals, birds, and fish are clean and may be eaten, and which ones are unclean and may not be eaten.
God says that eating unclean animals makes us disgusting. So, sleep on that tonight.
Leviticus 18:22 – You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an ABOMINATION.
The LGBTQ lifestyle is an abomination in the sight of God. Some people may be acceptable to it as long as you aren’t bothering them. But in God’s eyes, it’s unacceptable and an abomination.
This is not saying that they shouldn’t be afforded the same equal rights and protections under the Law as everyone else. Or, as other individuals, who, for example, eat pork. Eating unclean animals such as pork, is also an abomination in God’s eyes. But yet, other than God, no one is condemning these people.
This article is only pointing out what scripture says is an abomination to God, and is not intended to be political in one way or another.
Deuteronomy 12:30 – …do not fall into the trap of following their (heathen/pagan) customs and worshiping their gods. Do not inquire about their gods, saying, ‘How do these nations worship their gods? I want to follow their example.’
Deuteronomy 12:31 You must not worship the LORD your God the way the other nations worship their gods, for they perform for their gods every DETESTABLE act that the LORD hates.
The festivals of Christmas and Easter, are actually rooted in paganism. They are ancient festivals dedicated to pagan gods. All you have to do is just do a little research to discover these facts.
It is wrong to celebrate, worship, or associate Christ, with the pagan god festivals of Christmas and Easter.
Christ was not born on December the 25th- and he wasn’t buried and resurrected on Good Friday- Easter Sunday morning, respectively. Again, a little dedicated research goes a long way.
Proverbs 28:9 – One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an ABOMINATION.
Yes! That’s how serious disregarding God’s Law really is. Your prayers will go straight to the trash bin if you think that His Law was in some way diminished, nailed to the cross, or fulfilled and taken away.
If scripture is explicit as to what is abominable to our creator and you are guilty of some of those things, are you going to do something about it?
Or do you feel confident enough that purposely defying God’s Law won’t matter at the end, because somehow, it’s made acceptable though his grace, love, and mercy?
Remember, don’t tempt the Lord Your God.
