"He That Loves The Lord:Hate Evil"

Updated on July 9, 2012

"He That Loves God: Hates Evil'

We love God by hating evil and by helping our neighbors and brothers and sisters in Christ.
We love God by hating evil and by helping our neighbors and brothers and sisters in Christ.

"He That Loves The Lord : Hate Evil"

Psalms 97 chapter : verse 10: Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints, he deivereth them out of the hands of the wicked.

This verse alone tells us whether we love the Lord or not. We don't have to guess or wonder because if we love the Lord ,we eschew evil, which means we really hate all manner of evil and wrong doing. When we truly love God then we hate every form of evil that Satan or the devil brings our way. We profess to be Christians and God-like, but our actions tell a different story. We say we know God - Christ but our actions are so sorted that no one can tell the difference. Genuine lovers of God live their lives accordingly, to show people how much they love him. We live in a world of chaos,where people pretty much do what ever their hearts desire, which tells us that they are loving and serving the wrong God.

If we're stabbing our neighbor in the back and giving our fellow man holy hell, than how can we say we love God?. If we love God, we're not going to hurt or harm our neighbor or fellow man, in fact, we will do everything in our power to help him. If we love God we're not going to lie and take advantage of our brothers and sisters in Christ. If we love God we're not going to steal things that doesn't belong to us. If we love God, we're not going to go on a rampage by killing and wasting innocence blood, just because we can. If we love God, like we say, we do,we're will have more respect for life and even for the breath we breathe. If we're doing all manner of evil and committing heinous crimes, then we lying to ourselves because we sure can't lie to God because he know the heart.

So, when you say you love God, show it by the actions you perform in your life, don't hurt your neighbor or your brothers and sisters in Christ. I have my own little motto that I live by: This is it" If I can't help you, God knows I want hurt or harm you" and you can use the same motto to show your love for God, and our fellow man. Let's show our genuinely love for one another and by getting rid of the hate that consumes us every day. God knows true love when he sees it and so does little children. So, when we love our neighbors and brothers and sisters in Christ, we showing God how much we love him,

      A very meaningful hub Creativeone.

      Many of us do not put into practice what we claim which makes one wonder if we have the love of God our hearts. If the love of God is in us, we cannot love what He hates and the "world" is still in us. We must pray for deliverance and open up our hearts to be thoroughly saturated with His love which enables us to love our fellow man and live according to His commands.

      Forever His

      Thanks for your visit dahoglund, it appears that a lot of things that we were taught has gone south, do to people not knowing the true word of God and that is unfortunate for many. God bless you for your comment. creativeone59

      You speak out loud of what I've been saying for years. We don't PRACTICE what is preached. We say Lord have mercy every Sunday, and act as if we weren't saved Monday - Saturday. It's like that old saying "If you get Baptized on Sunday, on Monday all you have is a wet sinner." Thank you for sharing this thoughtful reminder of what a true Christian should be.

      God knows our hearts. Many profess to follow God, yet, look down on those who might be different. Actions speak louder than words. Thank you for a thoughtful Hub, full of truth.

      Cheers

      It seems in modern culture that thiongs I was always taught were wrong are being declared good. Some people want to take all mention of God out of public life,for example.
