Furthermore, The Oxford Companion to the Bible adds: "Ethical considerations such as consent, coercion, or the power imbalance inherent in adult-child relations are not legally relevant in these passages...
Leviticus 20:13 says (using Oxford's "revised standard" version): "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them."

 Explicit and Implicit References to Homosexuality in the Bible
There is no passage in the Bible that is clearer than, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination." This is a direct commandment prohibiting homosexual unions.
This passage says that homosexual intercourse is an abomination and a perversion -- a perversion as bad as bestiality, or having sex with a woman while she's having her period, or child sacrifice, or adultery.
The Bible does not often explicitly address slavery, either, or the propriety of women in leadership.

 "The Abomination of Desolation - Future or Fulfilled?" by Ralph Woodrow
We have reference to the teaching that the “abomination of desolation” is an idol to be placed in the holy of holies of a rebuilt Jewish temple — possibly an idol of the antichrist or the antichrist himself.
The teaching that the abomination of desolation is something yet future, not only requires a future and different temple, but such a temple — instead of being destroyed — is pictured as a place where the antichrist would set up an idol to be worshipped.

 Abomination - International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
Three distinct Hebrew words are rendered in the English Bible by "abomination," or "abominable thing," referring (except in Genesis 43:32; 46:34) to things or practices abhorrent to Yahweh, and opposed to the ritual or moral requirements of His religion.
The other word used to express a somewhat kindred idea of abhorrence and translated "abomination" in the King James Version is piggul; but it is used in the Hebrew Bible only of sacrificial flesh that has become stale, putrid, tainted (see Leviticus 7:18; 19:7; Ezekiel 4:14; Isaiah 65:4).
When it is said, for example, "The Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians," this is the word used; the significance being that the Hebrews were repugnant to the Egyptians as foreigners, as of an inferior caste, and especially as shepherds (Genesis 46:34).

 Article Archives - God, Shrimp, and Homosexuality
The description of homosexual behavior as toeivah, an “abomination,” excludes any reference “to you.” For shrimp, this might be interpreted as “detestable to the Jewish people,” but for homosexual activity, there is an implied “abomination to God,” not “to you” - a major difference.
The words in the original biblical Hebrew, both loosely translated by some as “abomination,” are completely different: toeivah for homosexual behavior (Leviticus 18:22) and sheketz for shrimp/shellfish and kosher food (Leviticus 11:10).
Deuteronomy 14:3 uses the word toeivah in the verse, “You shall not eat any abomination.” The succeeding verses list some of the animals allowed and forbidden as food to the Jewish people.

Indeed, Daniel was told that "from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up," 1,290 days—a little more than 3 1⁄2 years—would elapse until, apparently, the resurrection of Daniel and the rest of the saints would occur (Daniel 12:11, 13).

The Schofield Reference Bible which represents the thinking of the Plymouth Brethren and which is a primary source for the distribution of last day delusion could well be renamed "The Abomination That Maketh Desolate".
According to them, all the prominent commentaries, all the church fathers, and even the Reformers, were deluded by "man-made doctrines," while only the Brethren were subject to and submissive to the Bible as the Word of God.
Although the Plymouth Brethren are a very small sect, their "rediscovered truths" are to be found in nearly every Christian denomination.

 Sirach, Book Of (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) :: Bible Tools
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to God (Sirach 34:18 ff.), though He Himself appointed sacrifices and first-fruits (Sirach 45:20 f.), and when the righteous offer sacrifices to God they are accepted and remembered in the time to come (Sirach 35:1-12).
Sirach is the largest and most comprehensive example of Wisdom Literature (see WISDOM LITERATURE), and it has also the distinction of being the oldest book in the Apocrypha, being indeed older than at least two books (Daniel, Esther) which have found a place in the Canon alike of the Eastern and Western churches.
The ethical principle of Sirach is Hedonism or individual utilitarianism, as is that of Proverbs and the Old Testament generally, though in the Psalms and in the prophetical writings gratitude to God for the love He has shown and the kind acts He has performed is the basis of endless appeals and vows.

 Schnoebelen.html
Schnoebelen's misinterpretation of Matthew 5:22 in comparison with Mark 3:5 is not grounds for him to accuse the translators and publishers of the NIV and NASB of an "abomination." Again, he should be well aware of how easy it is to misuse the Bible.
Schnoebelen wants us to believe that to read as the modern texts read is to introduce a contradiction in the Bible.
Schnoebelen's concern well illustrates why later scribes (especially after the concept of the exaltation of Mary, her perpetual virginity, etc., came into vogue) expanded upon the original reading.
