We all know that God doesn’t enjoy watching us screw up; at least I don’t think he does. I can’t picture him sitting around waiting for us to stumble. Most of us read the bible and know biblical standards like right from wrong, good from bad and not sinning from sinning.

This morning I was reading in Proverbs and came across chapter 6:16-19 it tells us that 16 “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable (deserving to be detested; abominable; hateful) to him” after reading this I started to ask my self this one question, The BIBLE says that God Hates these sins…why do we keep on doing them if they are laid out right in front of us, in plain English. We don’t need a special degree or training…There’s nothing to decode.

I have read this allot over the last 5 years and it has never really stuck with me so I wanted to write them out and share with you so that we could just know what God hates…

I would say that most of them are just common sense but some I had to do a little research to make sure I was truly understanding.

V.17

  1. Haughty eyes. (Scornfully and condescendingly proud) I would say Basically having your nose up in the air…as my mom would say… “some one who thinks their own poop(being kid friendly 🙂 ) doesn’t smell” or seeing yourself as being more superior that others.
  2. Lying tongue
  3. Hands that shed innocent blood,

V18

  1. A heart that devises(plans) wicked schemes
  2. Feet that are quick to rush into evil

19

  1. A false witness who pours out lies
  2. A man who stirs up dissension among brothers. (disagreement among those expected to cooperate)

That’s it…7 things that we should…well need to avoid. I’m sure we can handle this.
