Hate Crimes

To reject God's commands is to reject God
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).


"Anyone who rejects [God's instructions about morality] does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit." 1 Thessalonians 4:8


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