Thanks for the reply.<quoted text>
When it comes to "Why does God feel this way or that way?" I am NOT proud enough to speak for God...He has his reasons...That is when people say "If God feels that way then I want nothing to do with him"...That is their choice...
IMO Abomination means something that God hates....He hates other things beside Homosexuality....
These six things doth the LORD hate:
yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed innocent blood,
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations,
feet that be swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaketh lies,
and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Prayer is even added to the list of abominations, if it comes from one who turns his ear from hearing the law in Proverbs 28:9.
He who turns away his ear from listening to the law,
Even his prayer is an abomination. NASB
I think God has hated things we all do (or have done in our past)
Have a good day
I agree with the six things in the Psalm.
Interesting take on empty prayers. I agree but for different reasons.
I do not agree that abomination, "God hates" to equate to sin. I am sure "God hates" to see little children die from cancer or birth defects. I do not think getting cancer, or in the case of inherited defects passing the genes to one's child, a sin.
The word abomination is IMHO not as cut and dried as everyone makes it out to be.
