Presumptuous Sins in the Bible Lesson
The Abominations Bible Explanation
Delighted to have you here to share today's Daily Bread. As Moses
continues this address to the children of Israel, he talks about the
nations that were currently living in the land of their inheritance.
These were seven nations, stronger than Israel; the Hittites,
Gergashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and the
Let's refresh our memories as to who these people were. If we go back
to the book of Genesis, we find that Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham,
and Japheth. These nations are the descendants of Ham (Genesis
10:6-20). If we read through the bloodline of Shem (Genesis
11:11-26), we discover that Abraham (Israel) is the descendant of Shem.
There was a story about Noah in the tent of his vineyard after the
flood, when Ham purposed to shame his father. Let's look at the curse
that Noah, a man deeply beloved of God, put on Canaan (Canaan was
And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done
unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall
he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of
Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
Presumptuous Sins in the Bible Truth
The Abominations Bible Concerns
Now we have a better idea of who's who and what the origin of all of
this is. Another thing to keep in mind is that God saved only Noah
and his family (8 people) alive through the Great Flood, so obviously
Noah's sons were God fearing people at that time. But over the years,
as Noah's descendants spread throughout the Earth ...
And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful,
and multiply, and replenish the earth.
... Many of the nations that developed from Noah's three sons
(including Ham's descendants which are Canaan) chose to forsake God
and serve other gods.
Now, back to what Moses was saying to Israel. When the Lord delivers
them (the people of Canaan) to you, don't make any deals with them,
or show them mercy. Make no marriages with them, because they will
cause your children to forsake God and He will destroy you suddenly.
Destroy their altars, images and groves, and burn them.
Presumptuous Sins in the Bible Teachings
The Abominations Bible Warning
Then Moses explains the affection that God has for the children of
Israel, more than any other nation on Earth, and if they will love
God and be obedient to Him, He will bless them above all people.
Now, knowing that the seven nations that Israel is about to oppose
are stronger than they are, Moses assures the Hebrews of God's
protection, reminding them of the miracles that He did in Egypt, and
that He will do the same to these heathen nations too. He adds an
interesting thing also, that the heathen will be driven out gradually
so that wild animals don't overpopulate the land.
I'd like you to give special attention to the last two verses of this
25 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with
fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor
take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therin: for it is an
abomination to the Lord thy God.
26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine
house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly
detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.
Presumptuous Sins in the Bible Fear
The Abominations Bible Danger
Why should these verses be thought provoking to you? Because we
should be careful in our ungodly society of today, where people are
convinced that almost anything is acceptable, that we don't allow
abomination in our homes, because our consciences are so dead to what
is Godly and what is Godless.
That reminds me of something king David wrote:
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let
them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall
be innocent from the great transgression.
What is a secret fault? Well, a secret is something that is hidden.
Sometimes when we desire something sinful, we keep the fact that it
is sin hidden even from ourselves so that we don't feel guilty
about it. We choose not to discern the right and wrong of some things
because we're afraid the Truth will reveal the sin in them.
Avoid Presumptuous Sins in the Bible
The Abominations Bible and Forgiveness
What is a presumptuous sin? It is overstepping due bounds. A white
lie would be a good example of a presumptuous sin. You are presuming
that you can make an exception (overstepping the bounds) to the
commandment that you shall not bear false witness. If you presume
you can take the liberty of altering righteousness for your own
purposes or for a specific occasion, you may want to take a closer
look at whether or not you are presumptuously sinning.
Now let's get back to the "abominations" issue, shall we? Why not
take an inventory of your own home and ask yourself, would God
approve of the figurines or knick knacks or statues or wall hangings
or paintings or photographs that are displayed in your home? (Don't
forget the kid's rooms.) What about the books, magazines, or other
reading materials that occupy your bookshelves or coffee table?
Would you share the paperbacks you read with Jesus? (Guess what ...
He already knows every word you read.) But ... How can one know what
a book contains unless they read it? It's no secret that paperback
novels are notorious for ungodly content. Read the cover before you
buy it or check it out from the library and make a righteous ...
Conscientious ... Choice.
Presumptuous Sins in the Bible Today
The Abominations Bible Sins
If you're sure you would recommend the book to Jesus when you're
through reading it, and you've not blinded your conscience just
because you desire to read it, then it's probably fine, but if you
have other "secret" motives for reading it, this may fall into the
presumptuous sin category, no?
Abominations don't have to be tangible items. What about the music
played in your home or the television shows that are viewed? This is
a very individual matter. Only you (and God) know if any of these
things are abominations or not. If the children of Israel had a
little golden butterfly in their tent, but it wasn't something they
worshiped or even gave a second thought to for the most part.
If it was just a reflection to them of something that God created,
that's certainly not the same as worshiping a golden calf. What may
be an abomination to one person, may not be an abomination to
another. Some people abuse drugs ... That is an abomination to their
flesh. Other people need drugs to manage a physical condition that
may be life threatening without the drug ... That is not an
abomination. Same drug, but to one it is an abomination, and to the
other it is medication.
Presumptuous Sins in the Bible Summary
The Abominations Bible Conclusion
If your ceramic unicorn collection gets more attention from you than
God does ... You may want to think about how God feels about that. If
you have difficulty determining what might be considered an
abomination, check out the Gentle
Gentile Law study, but a good rule of thumb is, if you have any
feeling that something may be rejected by the Lord, why take the
chance? Get rid of it ... Your soul is worth more than any material
(or other) thing can possibly be.
