    The same reason they hate Jesus.

    For example a person that is promiscuous fornicator having had multiple sexual partners confuses love for sex being the desires of the flesh gives them pleasure but they never will fill completely satisfied inside they remain feeling empty inside. If you tell them fornication is sinful or wrong can trigger a defensive response from them such as what's wrong with having sex with consenting partners they don't want to hear the truth rather they have accepted the lie they told themselves to a point of defending that lie at all costs. As for sins they give people pleasures and comforts in this world but they also leave them feeling empty inside themselves but like I said people will do whatever they can to protect the lie.

    I really don't know anyone who hates the truth or loves lies.

    I know that not everyone agrees on what is true... so if someone rejects what you're saying, it's not because they 'hate the truth' but because they think you're wrong.

    As much as people state they want the truth, it is in our human nature to shrink from those truths that directly point our way... to us personally and individually.

    It is then when the soul meets with the Truth in his/her inner chambers, is healed from the various wounds... that the heart utters in humbleness....

    *Hurt me with the truth, but never comfort me with a lie.*

    As we are cleared of those lies.... our hearts and minds see the beauty of being made free because of how Truth opens our hearts and our minds and souls. Until those moments occur, we are trapped in our individual caves, chained to those mistruths... which lie to us.

    The truth can and does hurt us... like all good surgeries...can.

    People are concerned and more fearful when it comes to having operations done... especially those of an unseen nature...

    Maybe it is because we lack Faith in the Great Surgeon who operates in the realms where all of our Hearts, minds and souls exist.

    Because the truth is hated by the world but loved by god and Christ and the real holy spirit ( which is prophetic power )

    Because the truth hurts, and sometimes its best not to know what the truth is. Hope this helps!

    "Truth" is just a religious word. If someone tells you they know the "truth", they probably are just selling you religious bull crap. There's only that which is consistent with evidence and that which is inconsistent with evidence.

    Religious people are too afraid to face reality and so condition themselves into believing these lies.

    Either that or they're retarded...
