Where God tends to “draw the line” includes those activities spelled out in Proverbs 6:16-20, “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:”
Because of pride Satan sought to rise above God. With lying tongue Satan lured Eve first through doubt and then by appealing to her pride by saying “you can become like God.” God certainly drew the line at the entrance to Eden. Genesis 3:24, “So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”
“A lying tongue,” one only needs to check the news. Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Our US lamestream media and many citizens do just that. Given our administration, a judgment?
“Hands that shed innocent blood,” there are hundreds of thousands of abortions performed each year, a number far greater I would suspect then the children sacrificed by pagans. Today, babies are sacrificed not on an altar of stone, rather on the altar of a woman’s convenience.
Wicked imaginations, preference for mischief, what passes for entertainment today is all too often vulgar, violent and without merit. Vampires, wolves, witches and more are often portrayed as heroes and our young people run into mischief. This can lead to the unpardonable sin, to profane the Holy Spirit. Matthew 12:31-32 “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.” A truly frightening final judgment.
Many are sowing discord among the people (brethren) men against women, black against white, black against police and more. Abortion and the demand for gay marriage have caused discord in this country. Those with a biblical worldview are often considered out of step and intolerant. When the layers are peeled back often the discord is perpetrated by a few elitist puppet masters who are pulling the strings. Confusion, perhaps a judgment.
Too late by a few generations to “Keep thy father's commandment and forsake not the law of thy mother,” keeping of the 10 Commandments? God was thrown out of the schools in the 60s and now as a country we are reaping the ill effect of two generations raised mostly with a secular worldview. Anything goes, a judgment?
Drilling deeper, often through pride mankind rejects the Creator and worships the created. In Romans Chapter 1 we are told that through the creation we are without excuse. One of the judgments pronounced on man due to rejecting the creation is homosexuality. A coming Sodom and Gomorrah judgment?
