Excusing our "wrongs" leads to hating our "rights"

Proverbs 17:15

He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous
are both alike an abomination to the LORD

Never justify the wicked. Only God can do that in Christ. Any human attempt to justify that which the wicked do and the person by whom that wickeness comes is an offense to the holiness of God.

Never condemn the righteous. There is now therefore no condemnation for those in Christ! Any human attempt to condemn the person for whom Christ has died and that done by the Spirit in and through them is an offense to the holiness of God.

The LORD hates the human ambition to call evil "good" and good "evil" and pronounces "Woe!" over them.

Isaiah 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and
light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
