If you’re not a follower of Jesus Christ because you met a Christian who was hateful toward you, I apologize to you for that person.  They were not following Jesus Christ either, or even listening to Him.

Jesus said:

John 13:34-35 (GW) 34“I’m giving you a new commandment: Love each other in the same way that I have loved you. 35Everyone will know that you are my disciples because of your love for each other.”

    • I agree with you 100%. Our new nature naturally should cause us to love in the first place because He first loved us. When you start to believe in someone, you invest all of your feelings and emotions into them and I think that stems from us being relational beings seeking “love” from others in the first place. However, when we love, we must assess how we love. Do we love people only for the good things and not the bad? If Jesus is the example and He loved us beyond even the most heinous of our sins and actions, then we must strive to love in that way too because I think that’s what “true Love” is. It’s a love that loves in spite of all. However, we struggle to do that because of the presence of pain and disappointment etc…which leads to bitterness and hatred so we must learn that if God can accept us in our weaknesses then who or what is holding us back from doing the same?

    God bless you my dear sister. Keep up the good work you are doing.

  3. I really enjoyed this Free from the Stronghold of Hate by Pola over at Christian Blessings and commented there. I am so very glad you found this post and reblogged it here! It meant so much to me that Pola would apologize on behalf of “hateful Christians”. We must love many times over to win those stumbling inquirers back onto a Christian path in their lives and free them from that stronghold of hate!
