Pagans

Pagans in the Lords eyes are those who perform detestable acts such as: worshiping a god or gods by burning their sons and daughters with fire in human sacrifice, using idolatry and pagan revelry. They even sacrifice to demons and false gods.

 

Detestable acts

Deuteronomy 12:31    31 You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way; for every abomination to the Lord which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.

 

Human sacrifice in fire

2 Kings 16:3    But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel; indeed he made his son pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the nations whom the Lord had cast out from before the children of Israel.

 

2 Kings 17:17    17 And they caused their sons and daughters to pass through the fire, practiced witchcraft and soothsaying, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.

 

Idolatry

Deuteronomy 27:15    15 ‘Cursed is the one who makes a carved or molded image, an abomination to the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and sets it up in secret.’

“And all the people shall answer and say, ‘Amen!’

 

Indulgence in pagan revelry

1 Corinthians 10:7-8    And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell;

 

Many so-called gods

1 Corinthians 8:5-6    For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.

 

Sacrifice of sons and daughters

Psalm 106:37    37 They even sacrificed their sons And their daughters to demons,

 

Sacrifices to demons

Deuteronomy 32:17    17 They sacrificed to demons, not to God,

To gods they did not know,

To new gods, new arrivals

That your fathers did not fear.

 

Psalm 106:37    37 They even sacrificed their sons And their daughters to demons,

 

1 Corinthians 10:20    20 Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons.

 

Sacrificing to false god

Exodus 22:20    20 “He who sacrifices to any god, except to the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed.

 

Shrine to prostitutes

1 Kings 14:24    24 And there were also perverted persons in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel.

 

1 Kings 15:12    12 And he banished the perverted persons from the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

 

Sorcery and divination

2 Kings 21:6    Also he made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.

 

Some pagans practiced soothsaying, witchcraft, consulted spirits and mediums. Some pagans also built shrines to prostitutes. There are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords), yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are  all things, and through whom we live.

 

1 Corinthians 10:32   32 Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.

May God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights, our safety nets and our inspiration for loving happiness in all of Your kingdom. Father into your hands I commend my spirit. Not my will, but Yours be done. Please come Lord Jesus.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit,

Amen.
