Things Which God Hates (Part 2)

Proverbs 6:16-19

2. A Lying Tongue (deceitful tongue)

All of us have lied and been lied to. The Bible tells us that God hates lying. John 8:42-44. Here Jesus is teaching a crowd of unbelieving Jews. Jesus describes Satan as the source of all lies. In absolute contrast (John14:6) Jesus claimed to be the truth.

Matthew 26:59-66. Here we have the account of Christ’s trial. Caiaphas the high Priest said to Him, “I adjure [demand] thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ [if you are the Messiah], the Son of God.” i.e. Come on Jesus–tell us the truth. Jesus, who had remained silent up to this point, said, It’s true. I am the Christ, the Son of God. Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven. Caiaphas responded, That’s “blasphemy”, and the people yelled “…He is guilty of death.”

Do you understand what happened here? Jesus told the truth, the absolute truth, even when he knew it would result in the death sentence.

God hates pride. God hates lying. On the other hand, God delights in humility and truthfulness.

Q. Have you truly humbled yourself before almighty God? Have you admitted that you are a sinner? Have you yielded to Christ, who humbled Himself to save you from your sins?
