“What I Hate”

Posted on: February 24th, 2016 by Chuck Ball No Comments

Let me be clear right from the start, I don’t hate anyone. There’s too much people hating going on today. People hate one another because of skin color, difference in beliefs and even something as simple as differing opinions. I hate, but I do not hate people. “Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”(Psalm 97:10) I hate evil! The Psalmist writes that we who love the Lord should hate evil. We should never, no matter what, hate another human being but hating evil is expected of Christians. Surely you’ve heard the phrase, “Hate the sin but love the sinner”. That should be the practice of every Christian. We all know people who have been involved with things that we didn’t agree with at all. You didn’t stop loving that person, even though it broke your heart to see them involved in such an activity. You continue to love that person and hate the evil they’ve yielded to. I hate evil because evil hinders man’s relationship with God. I also hate evil because our Father in heaven hates evil. “There are six things the Lord hates; seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devices wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.”(Prov.6:16-19)
