Hate is evil Evil behaves hatefully Hate fuels evil, those that hate what they believe is evil become what they hate Jesus did not say in the Sermon on the Mount, “Hate those you disagree with, for you are omniscient and know the hearts and minds and motivations of other human beings, hate and you will enter heaven.” Again, Jesus did *not* say this or anything like it, anywhere in the received texts. When you get to heaven, and Jesus asks “What did you do for me?” If your answer is “Well Lord, I hated everything that was evil, I hated vigorously in Your Name, I hated on behalf of all that You stand for!” And Jesus will say, “There is no room in heaven for hate. I’m sorry, you must leave.” Nothing I have written in the past few days, or in fact ever at this site, has been motivated by hate. My motivation was to end the hate. I don’t care you disagree with me, I invite you to challenge my positions, a blade grows dull without honing, and I want my sword sharpened for G-d. That is metaphorical, those who would take it literally have an evil agenda. I am not without sin, there are two people in this world I hate, with all my being. I hate the faceless, nameless person who robbed me of my beloved step-Father, brutally murdered in his own home. I hate the woman who emasculated me, and stole my dignity and confidence, and did everything in her corrupt power to drive a wedge between me and my family. These two persons, and these two only, have earned my hatred. But I know my hate for what it is, it is a burden I carry and a sin I will account for. Hating what you disagree with only makes you the monster you believe you are fighting. Hate feeds that monster, hate feeds evil, evil thrives on hate.
