#8 Hating People is not Godly
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”1 John 3:15 from the King James Version
Anyone doing this will never worship God acceptably according to the Holy Scriptures. Let’s read 1 John 3:13-16 to understand:
13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.”1 John 3:23 from King James Version
Hating people has no place with eternal life, because of the command to love others according to John 13:34-35, “A new commandment I [Jesus] give unto you, That ye love one another; as I [Jesus] have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
Love is expressed with affection and sometimes a great interest in someone or something. What communion has light with darkness? Which master (God or Satan) will you choose? Only disciples abide in the Word of God to love without conditions.
