7 Things God Hates and cannot Tolerate 

“There are seven things that the Lord hates and cannot tolerate: 

1. A proud look – is having an overly confident and arrogant look. 

  • The Bible says, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18

  • Rick Warren says, “Humility isn’t denying your strengths; it’s being honest about your weaknesses.” 

 2. A lying tongue – why does God hates lying? Because Satan is the father of lies. –> “You are the children of your father, the Devil, and you want to follow your father’s desires…because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is only doing what is natural to him, because he is a liar and the father of all lies.” ‭‭John‬ ‭8:44‬ ‭GNB‬‬

  • Stirs up trouble and separates good friends.
  •  It absolutely costs nothing to speak the truth, but when you lie to someone, or lie about someone – it can cost you a lot more than you expected. 

3. Hands that kill innocent people – We are God’s handiwork; God knitted us together in our Mother’s womb; We were born with purpose; All our days are numbered; God has appointed our limit on earth even before we were born.

Therefore no one should shed innocent lives:

  • abortionist – a person who carries out abortions
  • honor killings – in certain cultures girls who bring shame to the family can be lawfully killed
  •  suicide – someone who intentionally takes their own life 
  • euthanasia – the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering 

4. A mind that thinks up wicked plans – a person who lies in his bed and thinks of evil plans. 

  • how to rob the bank
  • how to kill his neighbor
  • searching pornography websites
  • dishonest and shady dealings

5. Feet that run off to do evil – someone who considered an ungodly act, and swiftly goes into action. Moving with haste to commit the sin.

  • Women gossiping about other women 
  • Spousal betrayal 
  • Sowing discord to stir up hatred
  • Manipulating children to despise the other parent

6. A witness that tells one lie after the other  – someone who lies as a witness is a false witness. He’s shameless and corrupt. 

  • manager vs employees 
  • gang members vs gang members
  • husband vs wife

7. Someone who stirs up trouble – a trouble maker; drama queen; a person who makes trouble between two persons.

  • Child vs Mother
  • Mother vs Child 
  • Sister vs Sister
  • In law vs In law
