Re: What are your views of love and hatred?
i think its wrong to hate. its a sad way to live and sometimes (not always) leads to murder which is horrible thing to do. One of my many morals values is that i may not like what they do but i will not wish harm on them but at the same time i WILL NOT condone (make an exception for) what they are doing.
Hatred is a choice
You can be free of hatred though i do not deny that for some it maybe hard but it is possible
even i have my moments but i decide to not let it consume me and i remember what the Bible says about Love. though it doesn't mean i don't think about what he/she did but instead i pray for them and ask God to help them but if i was in the wrong i ask God to forgive me for loosing my cool and ask him to help me stay off that path.
in Luke 6:27-30 & 35 Jesus is talking about how we should be towards one another and i firmly hold to this verse
27 But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back.
35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.
Other Scriptures talking about Love:
Proverbs 10:12 NKJV
12 Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins.
Romans 12:9 NKJV
9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
Revelation 3:19 NKJV
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
I hope to be the best worker I can be for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that I can reach many peoples hearts using the Word of God
