    A lot of non-believers quote-mine Scriptural verses as evidence that the Scriptures is full of contradictions. How can a hating God be a loving God, they point out.
    i stated what the hate meant. Its rejected of God.

    In a sense....yes. The word "reprobate" which is archaic now, was used in the King James Bible. It is not used by modern versions, the word debased has been substituted. Debased means immoral, or sinful. But as I said....this is not something that God would not have known when he made the world. We know this because all living things exist in populations. We have a population of humans on this planet now in excess of 7 billion people. Based on science and mathematics, we can estimate or confidently establish certain traits. For example, let's take intelligence as measured by IQ. We know that the vast majority of humans fall around the average of 100. Yet, going out past a certain number of standard deviations from that mean, there is a certain percentage of those who have extremely low IQ's and those who have extremely high IQ's. So, in this population of people, there are some really dumb people and some really smart people, and the vast majority of people are somewhere in between. This is something God would obviously have known prior to his decision to create people.

    All the sons of Adam are born at enmity against God. Human depravity is universal.
    That is not true. There are plenty of moral people who live in the world, and there are plenty of sinners. Even the bible itself states this by calling Abel righteous and Cain wicked.

    Jesus himself disagreed with your assertion by plainly stating that there are both righteous and wicked people on the planet. He also called Abel righteous in Matthew 23:35, thus confirming that from one parent, ADAM came both righteous and unrighteous people. Both just and unjust people exist on this planet.

    In addition to this, Jesus disagreed with the idea of universal depravity by claiming that children are righteous members of God's kingdom....not unrighteous and depraved. Matthew 18:10.

    Only God's grace and determination to reverse this hatred He receives from mankind, saves some.
    It is truly amazing that humans exist on this planet. Yet, like all other populations of species that have ever existed, there will come a time when we won't. We can observe that species are born, they live, they thrive, then they die. Our time will come one day, in some form or another, and we ourselves could become extinct.

    In any event, I'd like to argue against the notion of people hating God by offering a simple question for you and all readers.

    How does one hate what one does not know? Or, how is it possible to hate a person whom you have never met?

    There are plenty of moral people who live in the world,
    Moral and very sincere religious people are still depraved and work iniquity. Jesus told some very religious and i believe moral and sincere people this in scripture Matt 7:22

    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    Believe it or not, their good morality and sincerity in religion was their main work of iniquity and depravity !

    Thats the Mystery of iniquity Paul writes of 2 Thess 2:7

    See man by nature cant see how mans morality can be iniquity before God !

    Beloved57, are you familiar with the verse James 1:27? It claims that there is such a thing as pure and undefined religion. So, what you said above doesn’t apply to those practitioners. Like the first two humans ever naturally born on the planet - according to the book of Genesis - one was evil, one was good. There are good religious people and bad religious people.

    In any event, I’d like to hear you answer to the question I posed above. How is it possible to hate someone you’ve never met?

    Do you also think that when someone says "let's hit the road," they mean to grab a sledgehammer and start pounding the road with it?

    Iím not surprised. It doesnít seem anyone else does either. Well, Iíll just clear it up then. It is false to claim that men hate God. Men may hate religion, they may hate the idea of God presented in the Bible, but they donít hate God because theyíve never met him.

    Now why did God hate esau ? The scripture doesn't say, but it wasn't because he was a sinner or a depraved person.

    I know this because Paul had wrote:

    (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth)

    So Gods hatred and rejection of esau wasn't for any foreseen evil he would do, in fact the hatred was formed for him before he existed [not yet born]

    Gods hatred for him and all outside of gracious election, is simply His own Sovereign will from within Himself.
    Have you ever read this scripture
    in the book of Revelation?

    Revelation 3:5
    He that overcometh,
    the same shall be clothed in white raiment;
    and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life,
    but I will confess his name before my Father,
    and before his angels.

    I agree: you gave us sufficient scripture against which, by way of contrast, we are easily able to see, bright and clear, just how dismally, and how necessarily, you have failed in your anti-Scriptural claim. Romans 9 kills your false doctrine. Thank you, sir.
