There is No Hate Like Christian Love
I don’t know the original author of this proverb, but it was most likely a victim of evangelicals’ ungodly hatred masked as divine love.
Jesus said, “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35.) The defining trait of Christians shouldn’t be piety, adherence to dogma or a zealous defense of the faith. But love, an all-encompassing love that manifests itself in how we treat our neighbors, and everyone is our neighbor.
Jesus demonstrated his love by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and ministering to the outcasts. I don’t see most evangelicals doing good, only evil: demonizing the LGBTQ community, vilifying immigrants, casting aspersions on their political opponents, and generally acting like ambassadors of Satan.
Evangelicals try to justify their evil behavior by insisting that they “love the sinner, but hate the sin.” Bullshit! Take their attitude toward gays and lesbians, for example. It’s a sin to call them sinners, the LGBTQ community is no more sinful, and no more righteousness than the general population. They need to be treated with love and respect, and calling them sinners isn’t showing them any respect.
God save us from the love of Christians, it burns like hell fire.
