Love and Hate


Because of love; there is hate

And without hate there can be no love

Because our God loved us, we love Him back

Because our God hates sin; we also hate sin

Because we love all other people, we hate anything evil which will hurt them

We hate anything that will give them evil thoughts, so they will do evil

We also hate the evil things we do; any evil thoughts we have in our mind

And because we hate evil, repent when we do it; we will overcome evil

So we can come into Paradise and live forever with our Lord


*Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, "Which is the first commandment of all?" Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." Mk 12:28-31 NKJV+


*Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Ro 12:9-13 NIV+


*Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Ro 12:21 ESV+


*'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.' Rev 2:7 NASB+
