Hatred should not be shown towards anyone. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) The punishment of homosexuality Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Since you haven't accepted an answer, I'm assuming you are looking for something more explicit. Hate the sin There is a clear call in Scripture for the people of God to hate sin: The fear of the LORD is to hate evil -Proverbs 8:13 Hate evil, love good, And establish justice in the gate! -Amos 5:15 Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart; ... ...

I'd say that we forgive each other in order to more closely imitate Jesus. It doesn't have to do with letting them off the hook, nor do I believe it necessarily means we expect God to judge them later. From Matthew 18:21-22, Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven ...

It is impossible to love without hating. They are opposites in a sense--in the same sense that every coin has two sides, and without one side the other cannot exist. If you love your child, you have anything which harms your child: illness, a kidnapper, a vengeful ex-boyfriend If you love cleanliness, you hate dirtiness If you love quiet, you hate noise If ...

Firstly, I don't think forgiveness means complete absolution from justice (just to clarify some definitions). I think it means absolution from any form of revenge, redemptive violence, punishment for its own sake, etc. We can forgive someone for a violent act, but if they are likely to continue their violence that doesn't mean allowing them to freely do so. ...

Could Jesus Christ hate something or someone? Yes. Since Jesus is God, he would hate the same things God hates. John 10:30 I and my Father are one. Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked ...

Quote from the CARM article on Dualism: Religious dualism is the belief that there are two opposite powers in the universe: good and evil. Some say that this is manifested in the biblical revelation of God versus Satan. A common representation of these opposites is known from the Taoist religion as Yin and Yang. Dualism is unbiblical since Scripture does ...

Read Romans 1-2 (that's chapters one and two), which contain verses quoted to condemn homosexuality. You will see that Paul is making a point that in condemning we are judging and are guilty of plenty of our own sins. Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou ...

Mark 12:31 NIV The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these. What is important is that it does NOT say, "love your neighbor as yourself, if he believes like you do". Also, I would suggest that it would be against Jesus' teachings to even consider to hate someone because they do not have the same life ...

If you accept the Book of Wisdom as canonical, you might consider this verse especially relevant. Wis 14:9-10 (NABRE) Equally odious to God are the evildoer and the evil deed; and the thing made will be punished with its maker.
