A second thing God hates is homosexuality. God’s Word says,

" ’Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.”

Leviticus 18:22

"If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” Leviticus 20:13

“A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.” Deuteronomy 22:5

“…Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.” Jude 7

“…God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” “…Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

Romans 1:26-27;32

“do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals”

1 Corinthians 6:9

The Bible says we must sincerely hate what is evil. (Romans 12:9) It also says,

“Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.” Romans 14:16

It is a scary time for Christians. You probably have seen the news where ‘gays’ (another nicer word for homosexuals) are going into Churches and disrupting services. Some will get in your face and scream at you. But if you demonstrate against them or their life style you will be called a ‘homophobe” or a hate monger or something that implies that good is evil – and evil is good. Let’s be clear. God calls homosexually evil and those practicing it will not go to heaven. A repentant homosexual who turns from his sin and to God has his sin blotted out. He is as pure as the new driven snow. But the one who loves his pleasure more than God will not inherit the kingdom of God. If we neglect to share that – it would be like watching someone take poison and not warn them. I hate homosexuality. I have seen people I care about die horribly from aids. Love the sinner – but hate the sin. Love the sinner enough to be courageous.

That brings us the third thing God hates. God hates sin. God hates rebellion. The Word says,

“You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell. The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.” Psalm 5:4-5

"I hate, I despise your religious feasts; I cannot stand your assemblies.” Amos 5:21

“do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this," declares the LORD.” Zechariah 8”17

“For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you..." 1 Samuel 15:23
