There are some people I simply do not want to be in this world with because I do not respect the choice of others to hurt people. I think they should
not be hurting people in this world and I want them to go somewhere else.
That's MY choice... and I think most will agree with me.
There is hate among the deities, because apparently they are trying to build a world that they think is right

Psalms 97:10 - Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
Revelation 2:6 - But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

John 15:18-19 - If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you.
John 3:20 - For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
John 3:19 - And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were
Luke 14:26 - If any [man] come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life
also, he cannot be my disciple.
Luke 6:27 - But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Matthew 5:43 - Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
Amos 5:21 - I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

Leviticus 19:17 - Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him
Proverbs 6:16 - These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him:
So why do some verse say hate your enemies, yet some say love your enemies? Why do some seem to completely contradict each other. It's all in the
wordings and translations and anyone who believes in the gospel should feel they know in their heart the reason this is.... else they would not be
believers, but UNbelievers... thinking that the bible is full of lies. I do believe the bible has been tainted, but that is not my excuse for these
things... not at all. The bible has been transliterated, but the meaning still stands.
To hate sin, yet be kind to the sinner is the basic idea. There are are people in this world I hate, yet I would give them every chance in to change
when I see them hurting others. *I* have hurt others so how could I excuse giving no chances? (I do not really go around hurting people but I have
killed bugs, animals who got in front of my tire and have probably pissed a few people off.... I'm just making a statement that no one is perfect)
Why should we give people chances? Because WE were given a chance. Does this mean we should condone sin? NO. A sinful world is NOT the goal. Do YOU
want people to hurt YOU? Then why do you let them hurt others? You TEACH THEM. You show them mercy, but you do not accept sin if you believe in the
gospel. Why was it so important to teach that we should show this respect to all?
Because we are not the judges!
The Angels are the reapers of the field.
If we are capable of making mistakes, then how can we be the judges of a soul? We can't.... no need to even think about that level of condemnation if
you have not been appointed judge.
Teachers on the other hand, showers of mercy and upholders of love... THAT MUCH you are allowed.
By this practice, the world can be changed until all this hate is gone.... but this does not change the fact that God, nor those believers of God do
not want sin in this world.
Why would the bible teach you to hate your parents? It doesn't. He was speaking about his particular disciples who followed him in that time. Read the
14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
Follow him where? Where did Jesus go after he bore his cross? He went into death.
If you read the bible, people were always gathering around Jesus and asking him all sorts of questions... saying they wanted to learn, but many just
wanted to trip him up, prove him wrong, unroot the his teaching which were set in that time to build a foundation of a church ... or maybe worse. He
knew that one day they would kill him.
