Why God Hates Sin
Isaiah 59:1-2; I John 3:7-9
We must realize that God Hates sin!
We must also come to hate sin in the same way!
There are no little sins and big sins in God's eyes!
Sin is Sin!
4 "Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die."(KJV)
chatta'ah (khat-taw-aw');or chatta'th (khat-tawth'); from 2398;
an offence (sometimes habitual sinfulness), and its penalty, occasion, sacrifice, or expiation; also (concretely) an offender:
Sin is Offending God! Missing the Mark!
Everything that God represents is full of goodness, blessing and life.
17 "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."(NIV)
Jesus defined God and His desire in John 10:10
10 "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
God hates sin like we hate cancer!
Because the effects are parallel except one is for the here and now and the other is for all eternity.

7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (NKJ)
The comes the dark day when Sin is conceived in his Heart!
Hear the cry of the heart of God!
The place of Peace and beauty was destroyed and war was initiated!
12 "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.
16 "Those who see you will gaze at you, and consider you, saying: 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities, who did not open the house of his prisoners?'(NKJ)
It destroyed the Peace and Beauty of His Heaven
B. It destroyed the Beauty of His Created earth.
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (KJV)
We see judgment upon the creation!
