  • According to Proverbs 6:16-19 these are the things God hates. "6:19 There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers." What I find most interesting are the things not listed here.

  • Deadly sins?
  • The Seven Deadly Sins are those transgressions which are fatal to spiritual progress. You probably commit some of them every day without thinking about the rich tradition of eternal damnation in which you're participating. ENVY SLOTH GLUTTONY WRATH PRIDE LUST GREED Seven things God hates Proverbs 6:16-19 16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.
  • "There are six things which the Lord hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil, false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers." Proverbs 6:16-19 Ok, the commentary here cannot be limited to parenthesis. First, is it six or seven? The author seems confused about this at first. Says six, then says seven, but lists seven. So let's say seven and chalk the "six" comment up to a problem with counting. * Lying tongue - Only if it isn't Yahweh or one of His worshippers. Proof? Genesis 2:15-17, "The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the LORD God commanded the man, 'You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.'" The serpent contradicts this in Genesis 3:4-5, "'You will not surely die,' the serpent said to the woman. 'For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.'" Of course, they ate the fruit. What happened? Genesis 3:7 says that their eyes were opened and they knew good from evil, "Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves." Yahweh curses the serpent, Eve, and Adam. But He doesn't curse them to DEATH. They do not die. So, what the serpent said was true. They didn't die, and their eyes were opened to knowing good and evil. (Funny thing is that most people call the SERPENT the liar.) When did Adam die? Genesis 5:3-5 tells us exactly that, "When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth. After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died." Now, "The Fall" was before Adam and Eve had children, so we can safely assume that Adam lived AT LEAST 800 years after "The Fall". So, contrary to what Yahweh said, Adam did NOT die on that day, or on any subsequent day. He lived AT LEAST another 800 years. But it is apparently ok if Yahweh lies (there are other examples I could give). * Hands that shed innocent blood - it didn't bother him with the firstborn of Egypt, the Babylonians (more children), the Midianites (more children), the people of Jabesh-gilead (more children), etc ad nauseum, or when Elisha cursed children to die (by a bear) simply for calling him a baldy (2 Kings 2:23-24). The citations on this one are just too numerous for me to do justice to them. * Heart that devises wicked plans - again, so long as it isn't Yahweh (Does He have a heart? The Bible is unclear on this.) or His worshippers. Proof? Look at Egypt: "And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether...And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more...And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt. And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD HARDENED PHARAOH's HEART, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land." Exodus 11:1-10. Get that? This plan by Yahweh, by his own words, is to kill all of the firstborn in Egypt if Pharaoh doesn't let the Hebrews go. Moreover, Yahweh Himself hardened Pharaoh's heart to make sure that the plague would come to pass. So much for Pharaoh's free will. I've never heard of a more wicked plan. * feet that run rapidly to evil - I'd love to know how we are defining "evil" if the above isn't it. Seems to me the only way "evil" can be defined in this context is as THAT WHICH DOES NOT WORSHIP AND OBEY YAHWEH. * false witness who utters lies - We've covered the lies. * one who spreads strife among brothers - Unless you are Yahweh or one of His followers. "And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him." Genesis 4:2-8 I would call fratricide the ultimate strife between brothers. This one is due primarily to favoritism by Yahweh. Both brothers brought of their harvest. Yahweh, for reasons unexplained in the Bible, prefers Abel's blood sacrifice. Thus fueling jealousy that leads to fratricide. Note that our quote from Proverbs says Yahweh hates "one who spreads strife among brothers", not the strife between the brothers, or the brothers. Who spread it in this story? Go ahead and downrate me, but the text is there in black and white for anyone to read. A downrate for me doesn't erase or change the words I've quoted.

  • Some point to Proverbs 6:16–19 as the seven deadly sins: There are six things the LORD hates, yes, seven are an abomination to him; Haughty eyes (pride), a lying tongue (lying), and hands that shed innocent blood (murder); A heart that plots wicked schemes (intrigue), feet that run swiftly to evil (readiness to do evil), The false witness who utters lies (false witness), and he who sows discord among brothers (stirring up of discord). Here are the seven holy virtues as opposites to the seven deadly sins. According to Dante's The Divine Comedy the sins have an order of greatness, and the virtues a respective order of greatness as well. This order is shown below from the lowest to the highest. + Holy Virtues + Chastity (purity) Moderation (self-restraint) Generosity (vigilance) Zeal (enthusiasm) Meekness (composure) Charity (giving) Humility (humbleness) + Deadly Sins + Lust (inappropriate desire) Gluttony (over-indulgence) Greed (avarice) Sloth (laziness) Wrath (anger) Envy (jealousy) Pride (vanity) The history of this list goes back at least to Pope St. Gregory the Great and St. John Cassian, but while the list itself is not strictly biblical, the Bible proscribes all seven. With love in Christ.
