Who Does Hashem Abhor?

תְּאַבֵּד דֹּבְרֵי כָזָב אִישׁ דָּמִים וּמִרְמָה יְתָעֵב ה'

Doomseekers of deception the blood thirsty and deceitful man, Hashem abhors. 

I once heard a basketball coach whose baby son died talking about how his son was in heaven making sure to help his dad's team win. 


People create these fairytales in their mind about spiritual matters and then assume them to be true.

People similarly ascribe qualities to Hashem which start and end in their imagination. When they daven it is all predicated upon falsehood and they lose their right to life [אנשי דמים] for perverting concepts that are so basic and critical. Before we daven as mature adults it is incumbent upon us to purify our conceptions of Hashem in order that our tefillos not be rooted in false ideas.
