WHAT IS “THE ABOMINABLE” ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES?
“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and THE ABOMINABLE, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Revelation 21:7-8
Here, Adam Clarke identifies THE ABOMINABLE of Revelation 21:8
“The abominable - Εβδελυγμενοις· Those who are polluted with unnatural lust.”
The Torah confirms that sodomy is abomination.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
John Wesley also identifies THE ABOMINABLE with sodomites. He writes:
“Revelation 21:8 But the fearful and unbelieving - Who, through want of courage and faith, do not overcome. And abominable - That is, sodomites. And whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters - These three sins generally went together; their part is in the lake.” John Wesley
