What God Hates: A Helpful List of What to Avoid

I was thinking today about the Congressman who resigned, and about how some people have suggested that his wife should divorce him.  I tend to think that if she can stay with him she should.  What he did was wicked, but it seems to me that adding another divorce, which God hates, to the total sins of the world only makes the world a worse place.  And thinking about God hating divorce made me think about what else God hates.  Here is a list, in order of appearance in the Bible, of the 44 things, persons, and behaviors God hates.



1.   Homosexual acts (Leviticus 18:22).
2.   Humans having sex with animals (Leviticus 18:23)
3.   Idols, and the materials used to make idols (Deuteronomy 7:25)
4.   Sacred pillars (Deuteronomy 16:22)

11.   Charmers (Deuteronomy 18:11)
12.   Wizards (Deuteronomy 18:11)
13.   Necromancers (Deuteronomy 18:11)
14.   Transvestitism (Deuteronomy 22:5)
15.   Prostitution (Deuteronomy 23:18)
16.   Remarriage to a former wife after she has been married to another man (Deuteronomy 24:4)
17.   Dishonest scales (Deuteronomy 25:13-16)
18.   Workers of iniquity (Psalm 5:5)
19.   The wicked (Psalm 11:5)
20.   Those who love violence (Psalm 11:5)
21.   The perverse (Proverbs 3:32)
22.   A proud look (Proverbs 6:16-17)
23.   A lying tongue (Proverbs 6:17)
24.   Hands that shed innocent blood (Proverbs 6:17)
25.   A heart that devises wicked imaginations (Proverbs 6:18)
26.   Feet that are swift in running to mischief (Proverbs 6:18)
27.   A false witness who speaks lies (Proverbs 6:19)
28.   Anyone who sows discord among brethren (Proverbs 6:19)
29.   Lying lips (Proverbs 12:22)
30.   The sacrifices of the wicked (Proverbs 15:8)

33.   The proud in heart (Proverbs 16:5)
34.   Those who justify the wicked (Proverbs 17:15)
35.   Those who condemn the just (Proverbs 17:15)
36.   Vain sacrifices (Isaiah 1:13)
37.   Feasts and New Moons (Isaiah 1:14, Amos 5:21)
38.   Robbery for burnt offering (Isaiah 61:8)
39.   Idolatry (Jeremiah 44:2-4)
40.   Evil plans against neighbors (Zechariah 8:17)
41.   False oaths (Zechariah 8:17)
42.   Esau (Malachi 1:1-3; Romans 9:13)
