Jesus apprehended and
called me in the 1930's, I have never found or does it exist in Him, the
capacity to hate another human being. Without question, "God is
Love". He has revealed His quality of love, completely, in
His Son 'Jesus'. He so loved corruptible Mankind that He gave His
only begotten Son to redeem us.
I can not find any
hate in Jesus who asked forgiveness for His murderers while the nails
are still pinning Him to the Cross. If our goal is to love mankind
any less than this, we are liars, have never known Him, and the truth is
not in us. God is love and He, by nature, must love
absolutely. Although true, this is sometimes hard to handle.
It does not jade or eliminate the necessity for jurisprudence and the
verdicts of criminal justice.
This creates the
ultimate oxymoron, Jesus, full of grace and tender mercies, had a
hate-love with Mankind. In that He is omnipotent and love
absolutely then, His 'hatred' had to be absolute.
It is required to know
Him as 'love' necessitates that I know 'what it is' that He loathes.
"what Is it?"
