Six things God Hates, Seven are an Abomination

Pastor at church preached on this passage last Sunday.

Proverbs 6
16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.

The first reaction I had to this was that it revealed how God hates the actions of the terrorists. The Muslims who stand behind Al Qaida, Jemah Islamiah, and the PLO, don't come to know God they are going to the depths of hell.

The second thought I had was that of the partisanship in politics, which has grown here in the USA. The rift has grown to the point where shots have been fired at Republican campaign offices. This same pattern is happening the world round. God hates the dissension breeders.

The third was when I meditated on how so much has been made of lying, during this campaign. Who lied is not what struck me, but that who doesn't. No one! It was this that hit me. God hates it, and as I talk, and write this blog, God sees and hears every word...
