You Can't Truly Love Unless You Hate
love One major cause of the gay community's madness, and even the displeasure of some professing Christians, toward my recent Charisma News article on homosexuality, was what they perceived as a lack of love on my part. Ironically, it's these same proponents of love who vehemently cursed me and ridiculed me while mocking the article. Here is one sample among hundreds of pieces of hate mail I received:

"You are seriously one of the most ignorant, hateful human beings (if you can be called that) alive in the world."

This smug arrogance among some people today—many of whom are half my age or younger—who claim to be such experts on the topic of love, would be amusing if not for the blatant hypocrisy of it. This sentimental kind of love they speak of is very thin-skinned, as they demonstrated, because it is conditional and fickle and is not a love based on truth. It is always based on loving them, accepting them, and respecting them and their gay lifestyle. It loves those who love them for who they are, whether they are homosexual, lesbian, transgender, etc.

Although God's love is unconditional, and He loved us while we were yet sinners, His love must be balanced with His justice. Yes, He loves homosexuals, even those who stick their nose up at Him and defame His name. But for some, their characterization of God's love is a love that only exhorts but never exposes, restores but never rebukes, comforts but never confronts. It is a love that has no foundation in truth, justice and righteousness. In order to truly love God, you must also hate sin, wickedness and unrighteousness. True love cannot function without hate.

Notice what was spoken of Jesus:
