Hate

            There is far to much hatred in this country and the world today. It is something that will destroy everyone who possesses it. We all must turn our back on hate and express love instead. If the passages below hit home, there is still hope! Where there is love, hatred cannot abide. Simply ask God for help and forgiveness as this is what salvation is all about!

1 John 4:20-21 (NKJV)
            If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?

1 John 3:16 (NKJV)

            For those involved in a relationship with Jesus, there is hope! Take Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you won't believe what happens next! Here's some things to ponder, one cannot fall so low that God cannot reach down and lift you out! Also, wouldn't you rather believe in God then learn He doesn't exist than not believe only to discover He does?
