"O you lovers of Jehovah, hate what is bad." (Psalm 97:10)26 "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own soul, he cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26)
"Do I not hate those who are intensely hating you, O Jehovah, and do I not feel a loathing for those revolting against you? With a complete hatred I do hate them. They have become to me real enemies."—Psalm 139:21, 22.
"I have hated the congregation of evildoers, and with the wicked ones I do not sit." (Psalm 26:5)16 There are six things that Jehovah does hate; yes, seven are things detestable to his soul: 17 lofty eyes, a false tongue, and hands that are shedding innocent blood, 18 a heart fabricating hurtful schemes, feet that are in a hurry to run to badness, 19 a false witness that launches forth lies, and anyone sending forth contentions among brothers. ... 13 The fear of Jehovah means the hating of bad. Self-exaltation and pride and the bad way and the perverse mouth I have hated. (Proverbs 6:16-19; 8:13)
Why did God create evil? Does God need to hate? Is God only able to show love if he has something to hate?
