    One of the SF Christian regulars explained "hatred" on another recent thread thusly: "Impossible to know the inner motivations which drive dislike to hatred; however, low self esteem which is easily threatened and hypersensitive self absorption may be covert symptoms of character flaws underlying hatred."

    How does this sit with the assertion that the Christian God figure "hates" "sin"?

    Oh right, let's see.

    Q. Why do some people hate other people?

    Why do Christians use the word "hate" and "hatred" when they talk about their God figure's attitude to things like "sin"?

    What's the difficulty? I quoted you verbatim.

    The OP asks how does your explanation of "hatred" sit with the assertion that the Christian God figure "hates" "sin"?

    Why would I get a "forum ban" for asking you this?

    Surely anyone rational can compare any two things?

    There is perhaps the Christian notion of human language and non-human English language. 😉

    Perhaps it has something to do with 400 year old English?
    Do you "hate" cancer? Death? Evil?

    Recommend the New American Standard Bible. All believers in Christ who are growing in grace toward spiritual maturity
    [by systematically exposing themselves to the accurate teaching of the Word of God] have no fear of the adversities of life. Why? Because they know with certainty that God has a perfect plan and purpose for their lives; and that nothing will remove them from or keep them here on planet earth until His perfect time. How? By applying Bible Doctrine to their daily lives.

    How does your definition of "hatred" on that other thread sit with the use of the same word "hatred" by Christians in their assertions that their God figure "hates" "sin"? If you don't understand the question Grampy Bobby, then just say so rather than make these silly repeated mentions of a supposed "forum ban" for me for asking it.

    It appears the correct answer appeared before you asked this question. Why do you do this?

    He understands the question, obviously.

    It is you who does not understand the answer. Obviously.

    The word hatred is used in both cases ~ humans and the Christian God figure. Ignoring this and seeking to simply replace "hatred" in one case with the term "Righteous Indignation", which means something quite different, is more of a dodge than it is an answer about the use and application of the word "hatred".

    So, what does that tell you?

    It tells me that a comparison just doesn't apply.

    Yes, it means something quite different. There's your answer. Now that wasn't so hard, was it?

    Why is the same English word used for both? Why did Grampy Bobby feel the need to introduce a completely different term instead of addressing the fact that the same English word is used for both? When you claim "hatred" can mean "something quite different" when you and Grampy Bobby want or need it to, what basis do you have for this personal definition of the word "hatred"? Where is your self-authorized definition in the dictionary?
