Speaker 1

Adriana is asking what causes hate in one’s heart? Is it mainly our wrong ideas or resentment, or is the enemy doing his part to drive us to it mentally and then heart wise?

Speaker 3

Right. Faye, are you ready to tackle this question? It’s a very good question from Adriana.

Speaker 2

I’d love to.

Speaker 1

I think.

Speaker 3

Yeah, let’s parse it.

Speaker 1

Someone else would have to hop into what causes hate in one’s heart? Is it mainly our wrong ideas or resentment, or is it the enemy doing his part to drive us to it mentally and then heart wise?

Speaker 2

So I’m going to try to answer this in between unhappy Toddlers, but from what I understand about hate is that the beginning of hate, the root cause of hate is actually why don’t you guys try to discuss it and then I’ll come in.

Speaker 3

All right.

Speaker 1

Yes, no problem.

Speaker 3

We were just talking about Satan Wright and how the demons use tongues to trap us and all. And I think maybe it’s good to talk about a little bit. Where does the hate come from for us? Right. So if you look at Jeremiah 17, verse nine, I think this is very famous verse that the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it? So to me, what that’s saying? We’re nowadays born with a lot of hate, deceit wickedness in us, but it still had to come from somewhere. So saintton just needs to tempt us, maybe just trigger us a little bit and it’s going to come out. But where did that come from? From there? And where did stating come from? So if we have like first, John three, eight to nine, this is Jesus speaking. He’s talking about Satan says, sorry, this is John one, John three, eight to nine. It says, he who sins is of the devil, for the devil had sinned from the beginning for this purpose. The Son of God was manifested that he might destroy the worst of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for his seed remains in him, and he cannot sin because he has been born of God.

Speaker 3

So to me, what this verse is saying, yeah, like our natural predator disposition, the way we’re going to be is to send two hate to do wrong, to do bad things. And it’s only by God intervening and really having to be born again, being converted, being of a different seed, not sort of the seed from Satan in Satan’s line, but being of the lineage of God now of Christ. That’s the only way we can really get out of this bad cycle that all of us are in, of being hampled and doing these horrible things. It’s already in us. It’s not that it has to be planted in us. What’s your thoughts, Tina?

Speaker 4

I think that’s a really great answer. We definitely all have stood in us that I think it’s a matter of getting into. I think biblically speaking, I guess that’s where my mind always goes is I think there’s a really great verse in one John, chapter two, verse nine. And it’s talking about God’s people. But he’s calling out a sin that he sees in one John two, verse nine. And it reads, he who says he is in the light and hates his brother is in darkness until now. The chapter goes on to say in verse ten, but he that loves his brother abides in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him in verse eleven, but he that hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness and knows not wherever he goes because the darkness has blinded his eyes. And so I really think that hate is something that it’s such a terrible sin in that it blinds us. It’s darkness. And where does darkness come from? It comes from the devil. When God first made the Earth, God said, let there be light, before there was the sun, there was light.

Speaker 4

God in himself is light in truth. But yet this darkness that’s in the world, that’s from the enemy, that’s falsehood, that’s every wicked thing. And so I think that it’s whether or not we choose the light or we choose to be overcome by the darkness. And I think that when it comes to hating people, I think that it’s just a lack of putting forth the effort sometimes to love people. Like it says in Matthew 24, the love of many shell wax cold. And I think when it comes to love, it takes patience and it takes effort to love sometimes, but you really have to put in that effort to love people, even ones that are frustrating or whatever it is you need to make the effort and submit to God to love and to not get into those negative feelings that lead to hate. And like Jesus says, he hates his brother without cause, is guilty of murder, in essence, because hate is what leads to those terrible things that people do to other people.

Speaker 1

And if I could just add to that also that as you guys both talk about, that we were born in sin, sin is a part of this world and it’s therefore a part of us as well. And so we have that sort of predisposition towards it. And then the question when I say is it mainly our wrong ideas or resentment? Well, those are things that then fuel what happens with that sin. So it’s like the gun was already loaded with the sin and the wrong ideas, the resentments, those things, those are the things that pull the trigger on it and let it come out.

Speaker 3

The fears, the coveties. Yeah.

Speaker 1

And so Satan was the author of sin and hate and hate for people. He created that and infected us with that. But we do have a choice to choose in those moments when we find ourselves facing with the temptations the resentments, the jealousies, those kinds of things. We have the choice to say I’m not going to go that route. I’m not going to follow and buy into Satan’s way of responding to that. I’m going to make the choice to respond to it the way God would respond to it which is with a compassionate love and.

Speaker 3

A whole different approach and actually that’s a good lead into the next question. If we could.

Speaker 2

Add anything oh yeah, well I just wanted to mention that so I mean I think the common denominator with everything you guys are talking about is this idea that hate really originates from pride because that’s truly what started Satan off. He had all this pride and then through the pride he developed the characteristic of hate and pride had to be there in order for him to begin hating because he was full of himself so to speak. He wanted to be glorified. He wanted the honor that God was receiving and God and Christ were the thing getting in the way of fulfilling that desire to add gasoline I guess to the fire of the pride that he had. So as a result that individual or that Godhead was that was getting in between him and this self actualization that he was looking for and as a result of that it made him hate God and hate Christ. And I think with us whatever gets in the way of our desire to reach that fulfillment of our pride getting absolutely submerged in all the glory of itself is we begin to hate that thing if it’s principles, if it’s Commandments, if it’s people, we actually end up hating those that get in the way of producing that unrelentless virus of pride.

Speaker 2

So whatever gets in the way of our pride we begin to hate.

Speaker 4

I think that’s a really great point.

Speaker 3

Oh sorry.

Speaker 4

I just say I think that’s spot on.

Speaker 3

And then for references for those of you who don’t know where to find what we’re talking about about Satan and his pride and all that, you can look at Isaiah 14 versus twelve and you could look at Ezekiel 28 starting at about verse 15, both of those talking about Satan and his fall and his pride and how he’s trying to drag us down with him. It’s.
