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 Jebusites.

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 Ham's son).

Genesis 9:24

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 ...

Genesis 9:1

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.

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 chapter.

Deuteronomy 7:25-26

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:

Psalms 19:12-13

12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
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.

Glad you were here today. It's always a pleasure sharing Daily Bread with you. See you again soon!
