Proverbs 17:15

“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord”

 

Justifying the wicked…

This is self righteousness…seeking to be justified by works…As a sinner/unbeliever, looking to your “good” works instead of Christ for your salvation.

Condemning the righteous…

This is self condemnation…double jeopardy on a sin that has already been paid for.  As a saint/believer, looking at your behavior as a measure of your righteousness instead of Christ. (In the same way condemning other believers – “I can’t believe they did that…they should be ashamed” – Romans 2:1)

Both of these are an ABOMINATION (in hebrew – disgusting) to the Lord!
