Hate Sin, Love People

Psalm 97:10
Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Hate is acceptable to God only when it is directed towards evil. We should love God and hate evil. We should love people and hate evil things and evil deeds. Proof of right standing with God is living a life that demonstrates that we hate evil and love God. The more our relationship deepens with God, the more we will recognize things that are unacceptable to Him and the things that bring us closer into fellowship with Him. God is grieved and angered by things that are contrary to His Word, however He did not create us to be robots so He has given us the free will to make our own choices.

In His eternal wisdom, God knows that we will make some negative choices that we can learn from and share our experiences with others.

Harboring hatred in our heart towards people, will poison our soul and spread to every facet of our life.

The truth of the matter is that there will be people of all different backgrounds, races, and nationalities in both Heaven and Hell. The only difference is that those in Heaven will be the ones who chose to allow the love of Christ to operate in their life, and who shared God’s love with others
