“Jeff, do you think it’s possible for someone who genuinely loves God and accepts that Jesus is the way, truth, and light to continue to feel hatred for anyone else? If so, how? Loving Jesus and hating others are incompatible. You can’t experience them both at the same time, in my opinion. [This] means that during instances where someone hates another, he’s forgotten that he loves Jesus.”
Finally, there is no question that the horizontal relationships we have (both good and bad) directly impact the vertical relationship we have with a living God. But, I think, there are degrees similar to the rest of life’s gray areas. One day we will live in a world where there is no anger, no hatred, no sin, just a perfect relationship with a loving God.
