AN ABOMINATION

They that are perverse in heart are an abomination to Jehovah; but such as are perfect in their way are his delight. Proverbs 11:20

Abomination is another big word but it echoes the feelings of God towards sin. Sin is detestable therefore God abhors it. Anything sinful is an abomination and there are many bible text using this word ‘abomination’ and there is none among them that would not be sin.  He called the false worship of Satellites an abomination, he referred to their disobedience as an abomination, their constant desire to go back to Egypt was an abomination; even Egypt was by itself an abomination.

Egypt stood for bondage of sin so the Israelite constant desire to go back to Egypt signified their attachment to sin. In their comparison, bondage deemed better than liberty. This sinful craving was detestable to God. Solomon’s wives brought an abomination to the nation of Israel (strange gods) and caused Solomon and others to forget God. That move by Solomon to bring heathen wives was an abomination. “There, before the altars of heathen deities, “Chemosh, the abomination of Moab,” and “Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon,” were practiced the most degrading rites of heathenism.” Verse 7. – {PK 57.1}

We also have abominations in our lives today. What are our abominations? “Praying and sinning, sinning and praying, their lives are full of malice, deceit, envy, jealousy, and self-love. The prayers of this class are an abomination to God. True prayer engages the energies of the soul and affects the life.” By living our lives contrary to His will, we are living in abomination. “You may take part in the outward forms of worship; but your service will be an abomination to the God of heaven.” – E.G. White

I can now understand why God is seeing us sinners differently from what we see.it not about how we the best dresses we wear or suits, it is not anything physical or outward appearance, it is about our choices, spiritual, about our acts.But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Isaiah 64:6 (KJV)
