revised How does scripture reconcile the idea that God hates his enemies while he tells us to love ours?
Revamped the question to fit within guidelines and enlarged the scope of the comments to include both halves of the question.

comment How do we understand the balance of grace and justice in the Mosaic covenant?
It's the same balance as in the natural world. Follow the laws and you may prosper; break the laws and you will suffer. The real blessing, though, came to Israel not through the law, but by faith and love. That's how David lived and his kingdom prospered by it. The law does not promise grace at all. That's what Romans teaches us. Through God's law, the offender and offended would only find fairness when justice is applied.

comment Do Catholics officially recognize Protestants as Christians?
So the Catechism quoted in the answer is general info, and Trent info is more specific and pointed.

comment Which Apocrypha are part of the Catholic and the Orthodox traditions and which are not? Why?
Definition of Apocrypha: biblestudytools.com/dictionary/apocrypha If the works are not considered part of their canon, then they are by definition not Apocrypha. Perhaps you are asking whether there are any more holy or inspired works than those in the Catholic Bible?

comment Why would a loving God prefer one nation over another?
Actually God chose the Jewish nation because they were the smallest of nations, and a stiff-necked people. That shows His love even more! (Reference: Deut. 7:7.)

comment What did salvation mean to the Israelite people of the OT?
@IAbstract I removed that sentence. It was asking if the Jews thought of the concept of "salvation." Did they perceive anything of "salvation" in their lives with God. Again, I want to know what the Bible says of salvation of the OT Jews.

comment What did salvation mean to the Israelite people of the OT?
@servantofWiser That did not occur to me. I was thinking of what it says in the Bible, and that's what this site is about. I'll have to wander over there, since this question has 2 close votes. Thanks!

comment Is there any Biblical basis for saying that wives should divorce their physically-abusive husbands?
@LeeWoofenden I carefully refrained from saying that Abraham abused his wife. :) I kept it on "an abusive relationship" level. The OP can decide if it has any bearing or not. :)

comment Summary of the The Epistles in the New Testament
The shortest summary of the NT that I've come across is, "They are God's love letters to His children."
