    This is the command of God and Jesus Christ:

    " Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him. "

    I John 2:9-11

    If you have hate in your heart, confess it to God, and repent - turn from hatred, ask forgiveness, forgiving all who have hurt you, and believe the Gospel.

    It's not right for ANYONE, no matter what their religion, to hate someone due to them being poor, having a learning disability, etc...

    A LOT of people have money issues these days and no one asks to have a learning disability - that's how you're born. You can't prevent it and it doesn't make you terrible or stupid.

    There are good and bad people EVERYWHERE - in each religion, each gender, each race, etc...

    Even some "Christians" aren't good. Some of them are awful people (why do you think their are religious figures abusing children?), but that doesn't mean ALL of them are bad.

    It's perfectly fine to dislike or "hate" someone else. Some people deserve it actually. But, don't let one bad apple spoil the entire bunch - just because one person in a certain group is bad, it doesn't mean EVERYONE in that group is the same way.

    Only if they are false Christians in the manner of Satan's followers.

    For those who truly follow the Christ...NO. The COMMAND not request of Jesus is at John 13:34-35. "I am giving YOU a new commandment, that YOU love one another; just as I have loved YOU, that YOU also love one another. 35 By this all will know that YOU are my disciples, if YOU have love among yourselves.” Does this mention any exceptions?

    In fact it closes many. It forbids taking any part in any wars or "civil actions". Neither is racism, nationalism nor tribalism nor any other "--isms". Anything that would have us bringing harm to our spiritual brothers or sisters, is by this forbidden.

    A COMMAND is not anything swept under the rug as an option. If one desires to be rewarded by Jesus, then they must first OBEY him.

    Anything is possible for a Christian. Look at all the man-made denominations that rupture the unity of Christ's Body

    Christianity has been split into over 39,500 different denominations, sects and cults setting christian against christian and christians against everyone else!

    God's work? Hardly!

    It must be the Devil and the Antichrist working together to divide, conquer and destroy Christianity from the inside!

    that is a large false impression that God hates those who're gay, that is no longer real, that is basically no longer plausible, He loves each and every man or woman, yet there are issues God calls "sin" interior the Bible - "sin" and God who's Holy can not coexist and it is the reason Jesus paid the perfect fee on the pass for cleansing of our sins and by technique of it we are to repent and turn away and we are properly-known into the dominion of God, interior the Bible the act of homosexuality is seen a sin, both we believe interior the Bible or we do not, we gained't basically believe parts that experience us, meaning we are no longer believing in it and we are saying that we've righteousness that is larger than God's and by technique of exclaiming this we are committing yet another sin, before each and every thing the in reality way we are made righteous is through Jesus and so we are by technique of no capacity one to make judgments on God and His righteousness, if God says that is a sin, that is a sin no count number what we imagine. The Bible says that those who proceed to practice adultery, sexual immorality, thieves and so on. and it also mentions those who pratice homosexuality gained't inherit the dominion of God. We as Christians at the instantaneous are to not evaluate real, yet that does no longer advise we would want to flow adversarial to what the Bible itself is telling us, how are we to attempt this? If the Bible is telling us that those who practice those issues gained't enter the dominion of God, how are we to inform human beings that is tremendous, if some thing we ought to continuously be telling them that is what God is saying about those who practice this stuff, that is no longer about our judgment, that is about God's that is the in reality one which concerns. besides if God is adversarial to such issues, it in reality proves that homosexuality is guy-made, It replaced into in no way area of God's plan no longer like the union between guy and lady. it is what the Bible says in a million Corinthians 6:9-11: " 9Or do you no longer know that the unrighteous gained't inherit the dominion of God? do no longer be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor adult males who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the grasping, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the dominion of God. 11And such were a number of you. yet you've been washed, you've been sanctified, you've been justified interior the call of the Lord Jesus Christ and by technique of the Spirit of our God."

    Not everybody has had the avatages you have had. Hating on anybody in gereal for know reason besides looks or class or race just shows how bland a person you are and how un-in-tune with real life you are.

    Yes, of course. Look at how the Pharisees and the Scribes treated Yahushua even though he was one of them. Not only was he blood of their blood but he was their Messiah as well as everyone elses who fully believed in him and Yahweh, repented for their sins to Yahushua, and followed the laws of Moses except for sacrifices since Yahushua fulfilled the perfect sacrifice.

    Look in your history books, Christians have hated everybody at some time or other!

    Being religious doesn't make you a "good" person. In fact, quite often it makes you the opposite.
