"THESE SIX THINGS DOES THE LORD HATE; YEA, SEVEN ARE AN ABOMINATION UNTO HIM:

      (1) "A PROUD LOOK, (2) A LYING TONGUE (3) AND HANDS THAT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD, (4) A HEART THAT DEVISES WICKED IMAGINATIONS, (5) FEET THAT ARE SWIFT IN RUNNING TO MISCHIEF, (6) A FALSE WITNESS THAT SPEAKS LIES, (7) AND HE THAT SOWS DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN." (Proverbs 6:16/19)

      God hates those things individually, but all seven operating in one person "ARE AN ABOMINATION UNTO HIM:" The wicked are filled with evil and "ARE AN ABOMINATION UNTO HIM:"

      "There is no searching out God's understanding," (Isaiah 40:28) but you can know Him. The seven evils already mentioned are sins He punishes. Their opposites obviously are pleasing to God: (1) A HUMBLE LOOK, (3) A TRUTHFUL TONGUE, (3) HANDS THAT DO NOT SHED INNOCENT BLOOD, (4) A HEART THAT THINKS ONLY ON THOSE THINGS THAT ARE PURE AND JUST, (5) FEET THAT ARE SWIFT IN RUNNING TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, (6) A TRUE WITNESS THAT SPEAKS TRUTH, (7) AND HE THAT DOES NOT SOW DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN.

      So we find God Almighty hates wickedness and loves righteousness, and all those detractors who try to find fault with the history of what the LORD recorded in the Bible are striving with their Maker without a just cause to justify their sinful ways while supposing in the weakness of their faith that the Creator of the Universe will not take notice.

      "I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work." (Ecclesiates 3:17) Let there be no doubt this is true. Every work of mankind is brought into judgment as to whether it is good or evil, and the manner the wicked die is not desireable. (Job 18&19&21)

      But God says, "Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die and not that he should return from his ways, and live? (Ezekiel 18:23) God goes on to say through the Prophet Ezekiel, "When the wicked turns away from his wickedness that he has committed, and does what is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. Because he considers, and turns away from all his transgressions he committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die." (18:27/28)

      So, we find God Almighty focused on whether we do good or evil at all times. It gives him no pleasure when the wicked die and fall into the bottomless pit. When on some rare occasion a wicked person repents of the many evils they have done, the LORD is willing to forgive them of all their sins and begin a new and fresh relationship with them.

      We serve a merciful God.
