Its Amazing How We Love to Hate
Believers Love to Hate
When we go back to the foundation upon which our current practice of Christianity is based we cannot but agree with a popular non-Christian personality that said “the whole world would have been Christians except for Christians”.
Is this person correctly saying that our attitude and practice of Christianity is the bane of Christianity?
Is he saying that Christians who are products of the love of God lack the love ingredient as they relate with each other in the same church building?
Is he saying that the products of grace who in their confessions declare they are not under the LAW actually practice the laws of Moses to love neighbours and hate enemies in their daily lifestyles?
Could this be what gave birth to so many denominations in Christianity?
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another”. (John 13:34-35)
I mean do general overseers and superintendents start their churches and denominations because they fell out with their mentors or hate each other?
If the above statement is true, then the foundations of most Christian denominations is hate and not love. If they refuse to reconcile with one another after becoming overseers of churches, then they are promoting the ministry of condemnation and not the ministry of reconciliation handed to us by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Is this the reason why there is so much hatred, discrimination and condemnation among Christians of different denominations?

I hear that none of the genuine church leaders even visited or sent condolence message to one of the church leaders who recently lost members of his congregation via collapsed building. Even if he was their enemy, did God not say that we are not permitted to rejoice over the predicament of our enemies?
“Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him”. (Pro 24:17-18)
