Hatred

Is it wrong to hate? That depends on the object of our hate. We should never hate another person, because every person is a unique creation of God, an eternal soul that can be redeemed. Nevertheless, we should certainly hate the sinful things that even our most cherished loved ones do. We are to love the sinner but hate the sin. Foul language, perversion, crime, waywardness, even gossip are things to hate.

Hated comes from following our own sinful desires. Instead, we must allow the Holy Spirit to fill our lives, leaving no room for hated.
