Summary: There are some things the Bible says we should hate. They’re the same things that God hates.


A) When I say that we need more hate in our lives, I’m talking about hating the same things

that God hates! * “But Preacher, I thought God is love, is He really capable of hating?”

* According to the Bible, Yes He is! * I gave you four things this morning that God hates .......

* God hates quitting – Psalm 101:3 ... God hates every false way – Psalm 119:104

* He hates dead religion – Amos 5:21 ... He hates those who hates others – Zech. 8:17

B) Tonight, I want to look at three more things the Bible says that God hates!

* And may I remind you that if God hates it, we should hate it too!

* Our capacity to love God and to love what God loves is based on our capacity to hate the things

that God hates and that He doesn’t like! * Ecc. 3:8 “A time to love, and a time to hate;”

(5) FOUND IN PSALM 119:163! * “I hate and abhor lying:”

A) The more you love truth, the more you hate lying! * We should hate lying!

* Why not just tell the truth? * When children do something wrong, they’ll lie.

* Prov. 12:22 “Lying lips are abomination to the LORD:”

* Prov. 19:5; 9 (Repeated twice) “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh

lies shall not escape.” * God hates lying lips!

(6) FOUND IN PSALM 119:113! * “I hate vain thoughts:” * We are so stuck on ourselves!

A) We have so many vain thoughts! * God says that He hates vain thoughts!

* Gal. 6:3 “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.”

* Rom. 12:3 “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to

think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath

dealt to every man the measure of faith.”

* We shouldn’t be thinking of ourselves anyway, we should be thinking of Christ and others!

(7) LAST: TURN TO PROV. 6:16-19! * The word “abomination” means a hatred to the extreme.

A) God has degrees of hatred! * He says, “I hate this, but I have extreme hatred for this.”

* Look at the list ... “Proud look”– What is a proud look? * Self-sufficiency.

* It’s the look that says, “I don’t need God ... I don’t need anybody.”

* Everybody needs God ... He hates a proud look!

B) “A lying tongue!” * We’ve already covered this one! * Rev. 21:8 “... all liars shall have ...”

* “Hands that shed ...” * Did you hear what He said?

* That’s about as close as God can come to saying that He hates somebody!

* He hates the hands of Doctors who kills innocent babies!

C) “An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations,” * God can hate hands and He can hate hearts.

* I believe God hates the hearts of the filthy Hollywood crowd with all their love affairs and

loose lifestyles, immorality and sin! * He hates the hearts of Homosexuals and lesbians!

D) Nowadays, it is OK to mock Jesus!

* The “Insurgent” is the student newspaper on the University of Oregon campus, and in a recent

edition this paper ran two cartoons of Jesus.

* In one, He was hanging on the cross naked with an erection.

* In the other, Jesus is shown kissing another man and they both have erections.

E) One of pop music’s biggest stars is Madonna!

* She is currently on her worldwide “Confessions” tour, and at one point sings while hanging on a

huge mirrored cross in a mock crucifixion complete with a crown of thorns.

* The number one movie in the world right now is “The Da Vinci Code,” a movie that denies the

deity of Christ, reduces our Lord to a con man, while calling the Christian faith a lie.

* My friend, in May of 2006 it is perfectly acceptable and even applauded to mock, demean, and

debase the Lord Jesus Christ!

F) I wonder what would happen if that same newspaper ran similar cartoons of civil rights

leader Dr. Martin Luther King? * Can you imagine the uproar there would be?

* Or what if they ran cartoons depicting Mohammed as a homosexual?

* Those responsible would be in fear for their very lives.

* Or what about if they ran cartoons that mocked and demeaned people who choose to commit the

sin of homosexuality.

* There would be marches and protests by every pro-homosexual group that exists.

G) The fact is, nobody would dare to publish these types of disgusting representations of
