What exactly does God hate? What and were does God draw the line on what is and is not to be hated? I know God hate's sin, but is there anything else He hates? Is man suppose to hate anything?

PlanksandNails- I believe you are right. It is a paradox. I think that for us trying to understand His emotions, ie love, hate joy and so on is far beyound our reach. We simplely can not know the mind of God. Thank you.
Porshadoxus- Many thanks for your answer and many blessings.
manatita44- I will quote from Roman 9: 13 (NKJV) 13 As it is writen;" Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated."- This veres is a quote of the Lord in Malachi 1:2-3. -, manatita on this one point it's clear God does hate. Thanks for your answer.
God's hatred is different than man's lustful hatred from a wicked heart. God hated Esau so much that he sent Jacob back to Esau; he bowed before him seven times and they were reunited. God's hatred is not carnal, like our minds think of it
PlanksandNails- You are correct.
ii3rittles- I thank you very much for your answer.

JTomps42-Thank you for your answer. I am aware of God's love for all of us. But my initial question is what else other than sin does God hate? We are to love everyone according to God's word. Is hate reserved only for God when it comes to hating sin?
I think we should hate the sin, but not the sinner my friend.
How do you hate sin? What does that look like? When you are really hating sin, what are you doing about it?
Planks.... You just don't get it my friend.
I think Planks intention is good. He is trying to make you think. You know, if you kill someone (God forbid) killing is a sin. But if in prison you awake to a Higher Reality, you would be of greater service to aspiring mankind.
What do I do about God's hate of sin and the salvation from it? I try and spread the good news whenever I can. Even though we are chastised every time we do so. So many non-believers it is truly very sad.
