What is the difference between God hating something and man hating something?


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.

    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.

    Rayne123- Thank you for your answer., But I wish to ask you one questions. We know that God hates sin, so does that mean hating sin is good?

    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?
