Key Scriptures: Proverbs 6:16-19, 18:6-8, 24:30-34; Ephesians 4:29; Hebrews 4:12; John 8:44; Matthew 5:37 & James 3:15 & 17.

While we know of a truth that God loves because He is love, it is also true that there are things that God hates because He is pure, holy, righteous and just, and there are seven things (sins) hated by Him which are catalogued in Proverbs 6:16-19. While these are not the only sins condemned by God, they do sum up many of the wicked things which are an abomination to Him. These are things which deal with the deep motives of our hearts and the Lord is shining a piercing searchlight directly at our hearts in order to expose them to His glorious light.
If indeed we are participating in any of these things mentioned in Proverbs, we need to realise that we cannot ‘fix’ them ourselves, but can only throw ourselves at the mercy of God in true and sincere repentance and allow Him to help us overcome them.
