  • There are many verses in the Bible about hate, things that God hates, verses about hating others etc. Go to www.biblegateway.com & type in the word hate. every scripture in the Bible containing that word will come up.

  • Matthew 5:44
    But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you...

    1 John 4:20
    If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. (1 John 4:20)

  • Anon, I'm assuming you're saying that because you do not really know what your talking about.

  • Faithful4ever:

    I think you really have no clue WHO God is nor have an understanding of His word. Please don't make statements about something you dont know anything about!

    I have yet to see your God do any of this. In fact, last i checked, anyone who hates Him or curses Him gets to go to hell. Way to represent His teachings.

  • I have to agree with faithful4ever. You can't teach someone to not hate another, when you tell people to kill their children, or obey your every command, or burn in a firelake of hell. That's like a parent telling their kid not to swear, when they swear right in front of them. The best example set, are those by example. While the bible has a lot of good examples, it also has a lot of ones that are not.
