These culture wars and social issues are not making us a kinder, compassionate and gentle nation of toleration. By the way, the word “abomination” in the English Bible conveys various meanings, such as loathsome, detestable, abhorred, hateful, defiled, sinful, wicked, vile, repulsive, despicable, forbidden, unclean, unlawful and evil.
If conservative Christians are going to call special attention to one and two abominations, I contend that they also uphold other abominations in God’s sight.
They include idolatry, witchcraft, body arts, pride, divorce, evil thoughts, fornication, lying, thefts, murder, adultery, greed, malice, fraud, hatred, strife, envy, slander, drunkenness, falsehood, selfishness and hypocrisy.
Christian fundamentalists often forget the phrase “such were some of you.”
Abomination is abomination and carries equal penalty of separation from God. God hates all abominations, but loves the sinner. We hate the sinner and love the abominations.
Isaiah J. Ashe
