Christians Should Reject All Hate Crimes

Christians Should Reject All Hate Crimes, Including the Worst Hate Crime of All. This 1-minute devotion addresses that crime. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

I'm against ALL hate crimes.

Hate is never a godly motivation (1 John 4:20).

God doesn't tell us to mistreat people, call them names, talk about them sarcastically, or beat them up in back alleys.

But there's one type of hate crime our culture encourages: silencing the Truth.

God's commands are given for our good. They're loving and holy, preventing spiritual damage and death to our souls.

If we remain silent about God's moral truths because they aren't popular with the media or the culture, we're being truly hateful.

Why would we want to let men continue in destructive sins without gently and lovingly sharing God's truth with them? 

It's like having a cure for cancer but watching cancer patients die without saying a word. 

And it's being ashamed of God (Luke 9:26).

"God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit." 1 Thessalonians 4:7-8

Let's make sure we avoid all forms of hate.

  5. God is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5) GOD HATES“You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.”Psalm 45:7 NIV “But to the wicked person, God says: What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips? You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you.”Psalm 50:16-17 NIV “The arrogant cannot stand in your presence. You hate all who do wrong;”Psalm 5:5 NIV “The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion.”Psalm 11:5 NIV “But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens.”Exodus 18:21 NIV “You must not worship the Lord your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.”Deuteronomy 12:31 NIV “and do not erect a sacred stone, for these the Lord your God hates.”Deuteronomy 16:22 NIV WE MUST HATE“I hate those who cling to worthless idols; as for me, I trust in the Lord.”Psalm 31:6 NIV “Let those who love the Lord Hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”Psalm 97:10 NIV “I will not look with approval on anything that is vile. I hate what faithless people do; I will have no part in it.”Psalm 101:3 NIV

    God hates SIN in all its forms, but He dearly love the SINNERS, His arms open wide for those who repents and believed in Him.
