Pondering Proverbs

Proverbs 29:27

An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

This short little snippet of wisdom captures much of the mood of our day.   The unjust person is one who is guilty of injustice.  He breaks the law, God’s or man’s.  This is called an abomination, which means to feel disgust or repugnance towards someone or something.

The second half of the verse states the opposite truth which is that the person who is upright is disgusting to a wicked person.      This phrase hits home for bible believers because others are disgusted by our bible believing ways.  For instance numerous people are disgusted by what the Bible says about wives submitting to their husbands, women being excluded from the office of pastor, condemnation of sexual sin and homosexuality, modesty, and you get the point.

As long as sin reigns in this world, and the prince of the power of the air is on his thrown (that’s Satan, Eph.2:2), good will be called evil and evil will be called good.  Those who believe and stand for biblical truth will be abhorred by those who love evil.  And while we must not hate the person who sins, we are right to abhor and hate the sin itself.

So go ahead and get yourself worked up into a tizzy over all the sin around you, I think God will be pleased.  And don’t worry about it if you are hated for it.
