Part 4 in my study on what is abomination in the sight of God.
Many believers have fallen into accepting that which is abomination in the sight of God. Unless we study God's Word to learn His Mind on what is abominable, how will we know to purge ourselves from abomination? Lord willing, I will be posting the fruits of my study on the word "abomination," but feel free to leap ahead of me and study it for yourself. What is an abomination to God?
This is probably the harshest one to cover. I know that I am listing things in a straight-forward, blunt manner, but I am not judging Christians who participate in what I list below. I am simply stating what I believe God's Word says on this issue.
Deuteronomy 18:10-13 - There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.
All that do these things are abominable to God (Hebrew definitions given):
~using divination (oracle)
~observer of times (act covertly, practice magic)
~enchanter (to hiss, whisper a spell, to prognosticate)
~witch (to whisper a spell, enchant or practice magic)
~charmer (a spell)
~consulter with familiar spirits (mumble, necromancer)
~wizard (a knowing one, a conjurer, ghost)
~or necromancer (to pursue, to kill, seek or ask).
Christian, go through the list again and apply it to the movies, games, and books that you accept into your home. I'm not talking about the "obvious" things like Harry Potter. What about some movies...like the Disney cartoon Cinderella with the fairy godmother? Snow White, Fantasia, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, oh...and the big ones of today, Tangled, Frozen? What about games? Clash of Clans? Entertainment has put a happy light to that which God sees as abomination. Will we mesh with the world and accept what God defies?
