Hate Evil

By Odon Bulamba (24th December 2005) Summary only

Although the moon gives light there is no life on the moon. When we look at the moon it is very beautiful and gives light and is very soft, not like the sun. Some Christians are apparently soft and nice but when God visits, there is no life in them.

Mathew 23:27,Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean”.

Everybody loved the Pharisees because on the outside they were soft and looked very good but on the inside there was something wrong.

Proverbs 9:10, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding”.

If you know the Holy One it will be easy to understand things but if you don’t know God, it’s easy to judge and make human decisions.

Proverbs 8:13, “To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech”.

The fear of the Lord means you will hate evil and therefore in order to find wisdom you need to hate evil. When you hate evil you will see who God is for you.

Hate is something deep in your heart and you’ll feel something wrong, you will have no joy when you see it and you will want to stay away. Many Christians can’t make decisions, they are like the moon looking nice on the outside but on the inside they can’t make up their minds even if sin is ruining their lives. Sometimes we forget how to make decisions because we look left and right and not at God. When we are not serious, when we make decisions to sin…God will see the image that we reflect to the world is not good (the moon reflects light from the sun). When you make a decision to live for God, you must keep it and when you fail…you must repent otherwise you will just be like the Pharisees looking clean on the outside while there is something wrong on the inside.
