    Is it ever OK for a Christian to hate someone?

    We debated this topic 5 years ago at TOL and it was very enlightening.
    Some said yes and some said no.
    What say you?
    Psalms 58:10
    The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

      i don't know. i haven't thought about it really. my inital answer, kinda my gut reaction, would be no. but it's subject to change. what about you?
      There is no neutral ground in the universe: every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan.

      C.S. Lewis

        I've been thinking about it for 5 years, but I don't want to let the cat out of the bag so to speak until lots of people have weighed in. Not that my opinion is some great revelation but I think it is an interesting topic that is applicable in everyday life. And I wonder what the prevailing thoughts are on the subject now at TOL.

          There are some that have convinced themselves that it is OK sometimes.

          I say no. Love your enemy. Love your neighbor. There's no room for hate anywhere between the two.

            Not only are we to love our enemies, but Jesus also said, "Whosoever will, let him come..." and hating them isn't going to bring them. Now, tolerating thier sin and 'looking the other way' is a different thing.

              Its okay to hate some people. But, maybe the rules are different for me, not being a christian. There are just some people that I hate and wouldnt mind bad things happening to.

                But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

                    Who said anything about hating this guy in darkness, he knows I hate him. He hates me right back. Thanks for the thought though.

                      I didn't say you hate anyone in darkness, but The Word of God says that you're in the darkness, that darkness is where you reside, and so you can't see where you are going. You don't realize that you're headed to destruction 'till you're already destroyed because you're walking in blindness. The god of this world has blinded you so that you can't see The Truth and come to The Lord for salvation before you are lost forever.

                        I think it is wrong to hate someone unless you include Satan as being someone and then I think you can hate him.

                          Listen dude, I was a christian for the majority of my life, I know all about it, all I'm saying is, for a christian to say that they dont hate any one, espetialy people on this site, is totaly bogus. Just read through the posts on the "Coming Out Holiday", from my personal experiance christians hate a whole lot of people. Gays, Muslims, people who dont agree with them. I'm not trying to pick a fight, people hate, I hate this dude for very good reasons.

                            Your right, as Christian we are not perfect, which is why Jesus died for us. Jesus said to Love our enemies, Love those who do all kinds of bad things against us, Love everyone. As a Christian we should not be hating anyone, we can hate the sin, but not the person. Just as Jesus loved is how we should love.
