“Faith can move mountains.
So why are you stumbling on a little rock?”
SINS are ACTIONS OUTSIDE THE WILL of GOD, such as breaking HIS laws and COMMAMDMENTS. Thoughts are NOT SINS, but must be brought into submission before they lead to SIN...ABOMINATIONS are ACTIONS OUTSIDE THE WILL of GOD THAT BRING TOTAL DESTRUCTION ON THE SINNER AND THE WRATH of GOD!!! EXAMPLE: the devil tempted Jesus with evil thoughts while in the desert fasting 40 days, but Jesus never sinned, because He rebuked the thoughts and never allowed them to take root in His mind...ADAM AND EVE DIDN'T SIN BY THINKING ABOUT THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT, BUT BY TOUCHING AND EATING IT...but the THOUGHT led to the SIN!
ABOMINATION (the most serious and harmful type of SIN) EXAMPLE: Murder is more serious and harmful a crime than theft!
