Most Things Are An Abomination to God

When the subject of abominations comes up, most people think of homosexuality, because that is one of the few things that God hasn’t changed his mind about since he became a born again Christian a couple thousand years ago. God still likes Leviticus 18:22, although he’s softened up a bit on Leviticus 20:13.Here are ten other things that are (or were) abominations to the non-denominational, pre-Christian Bible-God. (In God’s favorite order — biblical!)

  1. Lobsters, shrimp, clams, octopus, and squids

    Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 11:12

  2. Four-legged fowls

    All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 11:20

  3. Four-footed flying, creeping things

    But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 11:23

  4. Whatever crawls on its belly, goes on all four, or has lots of legs

    Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth … are an abomination. Leviticus 11:42

  5. Sacrificing a blemished sheep or goat

    Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 17:1

  6. Women who wear men’s clothing

    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 22:5

  7. The hire of a whore or the price of a dog

    Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 23:18

  8. Taking back an ex-wife after she’s been defiled

    (If you get married and then find that you hate your wife because she’s unclean or something, go ahead and divorce her and kick her out of your house. After she’s gone, if some other guy marries her and also hates her and divorces her, don’t take her back as your wife. It really pisses God off. It’s an abomination to him.)

    When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD. Deuteronomy 24:1-4

  9. The work of a craftsman

    Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman…. Deuteronomy 27:15

  10. Whatever people value the most

    (Like kindness, wisdom, truth, courage, honesty, love, compassion, beauty?)

    That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. Luke 16:15
