|1 John 3:15|
15 Whoever hates his brother has committed murder [in his heart], and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
|1 John 4:20|
20 If a man 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?
44 But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you;
39 And the second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' [Unless you have hated your life, and gone to the Lord to wait on Him and obey Him until your selfish human spirit has been crucified, it is impossible to love your neighbor as yourself. Any other supposed way is deception. Man is a fallen, selfish creature, and until a man has been restored to the image of God's righteousness and holiness, he does not even understand what love is. Your defiled heart must first be cleansed through obedience on the inward cross of self-denial to love your neighbor as yourself.]
21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
22 In this way you will heap burning coals upon his head, and the LORD shall reward you.
|1 John 2:9|
9 Whoever says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness even now.
|1 John 2:11 |
11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness, and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because that darkness has blinded his eyes.
