Proverbs 8:7 (Mini Sermon)


7. Pro 8:7 - "For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips." A. For my mouth shall speak truth; i. God is a God of truth (Psa 31:5; Joh 14:6). ii. Therefore, wisdom's mouth speaks truth. a. Truth n. - II. 5. a. Conformity with fact; agreement with reality; accuracy, correctness, verity (of statement or thought). b. God's word is truth (Joh 17:17; Psa 119:142, 151). c. There is nothing in the word of God which does not perfectly conform to fact and reality. d. God's word is true when it speaks of all things including history, science, geology, astronomy, meteorology, biology, philosophy, economics, politics, human nature, psychology, sociology, and theology. iii. The truth of God's word will free us from lies and bondage (Joh 8:31-32) and preserve us (Psa 40:11). B. and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. i. Wickedness n. - 1. The quality of being wicked; wicked character or disposition; depravity, iniquity, immorality. a. Since wickedness is set in contrast to truth in this verse, it is evident that whatever is opposed to the truth is wicked. b. Lies, false doctrine, and heresy are as much wickedness as are murder, adultery, and fornication (Gal 5:19-21). ii. The thought of wickedness coming out of wisdom's lips is an abomination. a. Abomination n. - 1. The feeling or state of mind of combined disgust and hatred; abhorrence, detestation, loathing. b. The idea of speaking lies is hateful and disgusting in the mind of wisdom. c. A lying tongue and a false witness who speaks lies are an abomination to God (Pro 6:16-19; Pro 12:22). d. Wickedness coming out of our mouths should be an abomination to us as well (Psa 119:163).
