“And He said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.” Luke 16:15

When it is discussed what is pleasing in the sight of God and what is not pleasing, the subject is generally centered on sin; what is sin and what is not sin. Very seldom, if ever, does the discussion get around to what is an abomination unto the Lord. Most believe these two words are interchangeable. But with a little word study we find there is much difference between the word sin and the word abomination.

  1. Jesus was excoriating the Pharisees, who here “loved money” and elsewhere load heavy burdens on others, and for show make lengthy prayers. “I desire mercy, not sacrifice”- Hosea. Mercy. Love, not rules and regulations and restrictions. Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Think on these things and not on “abominations”, and you will be a better and happier Christian.

    1. Clare, Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

      We cannot simply focus on the mercy of God while ignoring His commands about holiness and repentance. God commands all men everywhere to repent. (Acts 17:30) Without repentance there is no such thing as salvation. Far too many professing Christians simply ignore the truth of the word of God and imagine that all we need to do is preach love, love, love.

      One of the works of the Holy Spirit is to convict the world of sin. If we never confront sin why would we expect the sinner to turn from it. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me. (Acts 16:7-9)
