I thought Christians were supposed to be very understanding, loving people who hated no one? Who had no bad intentions or thoughts towards any other human being?
9Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
Now, it's been pointed out that Christians are free from the law of the OT. This is true, but Paul talks about this freedom in First Corinthians 10:23 when he says everything is permissible. However, he goes on to say that not everything is beneficial.
4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.
"You shall have no other gods besides Me... Do not make a sculpted image or any likeness of what is in the heavens above..."
It is also a prohibition against making or possessing objects that one or other may bow down to or serve, including any artistic representations of God or symbols thereof, including crucifixes, or any sculpture of a human being.
44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute
Love your neighbor as yourself. So in everything, do to others as you would have them do to you.
