Hating and Loving

There are some immoral things that God hates, and we should as well. For a short list, see Proverbs 6:16-19. But we must remember that God doesn’t dismiss people because we do hateful things, so we shouldn’t either. God gives us a chance to not be hateful. God loves us enough to give us a way out, and He has us Christians here to let everyone know about it!

Hate has its place, and love has its place. There is a time for both (Ecclesiastes 3:8), sometimes at the same time. If you’re having a problem with these, as many of us so often do, God can help you overcome that. God can show us what to hate and when to hate it. God can show us what, who, and how to love. God can show us how to love people we hate.
