no, seven things he detests: – Proverbs 6:16 NLT
8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” — Rev. 21:8
God doesn’t see lies as black and white, to Him, lies are lies, period. While the external effects of some sins are greater than others, the internal effect to each of us committing those sins is the same. Sin, any sin, separates us from the love of God.
2 But your iniquities have separated
your sins have hidden his face from you,
so that he will not hear. — Isaiah 59:2
As long as there is unconfessed sin in our lives, we limit what God can do for us and through us. Just as the rebellion of the children of Israel limited God in the wilderness, we do the same thing. If we continue to live a lifestyle of rebellion and unconfessed sin, God has no choice but to withdraw His blessings and protective covering over our lives. The children of Israel were defeated in battles when they were disobedient to God. We live defeated lives, when we refuse to obey and confess our sins.
41 Yes, again and again they tempted God,
And limited the Holy One of Israel. — Psalm 78:40, 41
