Sorry, but you are totally totally wrong. I know right from wrong and do sin. Let's say your best friend felt he or she needed to tell another friend a lie about you and it caused a lot of gossip about you, are you telling me that you would hate that person? heavens no, you wouldn't hate that person, you would hate the lie that was told about you, yet I would hope you would continue to love that friend in spite of the sin against you that he committed. GOD loves us but HE hates the sins we commit and GOD has told us to do the same, so you see it is possible to love, or like a person and hate their ways.

Maybe you haven't been taught that or apply it to your life but I have and therefore I can love someone yet hate their ways because I truly love my LORD and want to follow HIS command on this topic. I don't hate muslims , athesists or agnostics or anyone for that matter , but sin I do hate and yes I know I am a sinful person, as I have stated before no one is perfect and I sin everyday as you and everyone else does and believe you me I hate it when I sin and work very hard never to commit that sin again but I am human and make tons of mistakes as does everyone else.

Maybe you haven't been taught to seperate sin from a person and thats really sad. Take islam for instance, they totally deny JESUS as who HE really is and why HE came to earth , in saudi they deny a woman her GOD given rights, to be honored and respected and her right to make her her choices. I hate their systems of how they treat others, but yet pray for those people. GOD has said, MAN IS TO TREAT OTHERS AS WE WANT HIM TO TREAT US", so if we abuse others we can expect GOD to chastise us . We are told also that we are not to sit silently back and let those that are doing wrong to continue their evil ways ( killing, forcing one to convert to their religion to the point if you don't follow our ways we will kill you ) . We are to stand up and stand tall , speak the truth about their evil ways yet we are commanded to even love our enemies. So you see even GOD says it's possible to love others yet hate their ways (sins) . I will follow GOD and HIS WORD'S before any man's ideas and I am here to tell you , your idea's on life are dead wrong, only GOD'S ways are right. Think about what I have said and try and apply it to your life., I truly believe your walk in life will be much happier
