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