WHEN PEOPLE DECIDE FOR GOD WHAT SINS HE HATES MORE…

Have you ever heard anyone say their decision was based on being…


THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS?


By whose standard?

Ours or God’s?

When we make decisions that are reserved exclusively for God’s authority, it’s dangerously close to idolatry or putting ourselves in His authority.


It’s amazing how people decide for God which sins are BIG and little.


The fact is that God considers abominations more evil than many sins we call less evil.

Proverbs 6:16-19New King James Version

16 These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to [a]Him:
17 (A)A[b] proud look,
(B)A lying tongue,
(C)Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 (D)A heart that devises wicked plans,
(E)Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 (F)A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who (G)sows discord among brethren.


To be clear, this short article isn’t excusing any sin, but warning against the sin of hypocrisy.


Matthew 16:5-12 (NKJV)

5 Now (B)when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6 Then Jesus said to them, (C)“Take heed and beware of the [a]leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”

7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have taken no bread.”

8 But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you [b]have brought no bread? 9 (D)Do you not yet understand, or remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up? 10 (E)Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many large baskets you took up? 11 How is it you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread?—but to beware of the [c]leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the [d]doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

BE BLESSTIFIED!
