Freewrite: What Is "Hate"? Is It Morally Acceptable?

Some labels have been drained out of meaning due to "overconsumption". One of those labels is "hater". Whenever we stand firmly against the mainstream narrative, it's very likely someone is going to use one of three words to label us and discredit our attitudes/opinions by doing so. Two words will remain untold, the third is "hater", as stated above.

Have you ever asked for a clear-cut definition of "hate"? Have you ever asked yourself "where is hate actually coming from?". Those questions may be especially interesting for Christians who read the Bible and found the following verses:

"Honor (in some translations says "Love") your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you." Exodus 20:12

"If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." (words of Jesus) Luke 14:26

To understand what has been said, one must read the little-known Essene Gospel of Peace, from the Nag-Hammadi library, in which Jesus said who is our mother.

Jesus was asked, "Who is our Mother and which her angels?" to which He replied: your Mother is in you, and you in her. She bore you she gives you life. It was she who gave to you your body, and to her shall you one day give it back again. Happy are you when you come to know her and her kingdom; if you receive your Mother's angels and if you do her laws. I tell you truly, he who does these things shall never see disease. For the power of our, Mother is above all. And it destroys Satan and his kingdom and has rule over all your bodies and all living things. The blood which runs in us is born of the blood of our Earthly Mother. Her blood falls from the clouds; leaps from the womb of the earth; babbles in the brooks of the mountains; flows wide in the rivers of the plains; sleeps in the lakes; rages mightily in tempestuous seas. The air which we breathe is born of the breath of our Earthly Mother. Her breath is azure in the heights of the heavens; soughs in the tops of the mountains; whispers the leaves of the forest; billows over the cornfields; slumbers in the deep valleys, burns hot in the desert. - Essene Gospel of Peace, book 1!

In Matthew 5:48 Jesus commands us to be perfect as our Father which is in Heaven is perfect. Therefore, Exodus 20:12 commands us to honor and love our Spiritual parents (Creator & Earth), while in Luke 14:26, Jesus clearly talked about our physical parents and family members.

However, there is one word that Jesus mentioned in Luke 14:26 that isn't Godly & morally right, according to modern standards and understandings. That word is: "hate".

How and why would God (Jesus was called God in Isaiah 9:6) command us to do something that's ungodly, unlike his likeness and image? I was bothered by that for a long time. I was seeking an answer, and the answer was seeking me. It came, unexpectedly, while learning something that's not related to religion: psychology (well, at least I thought Bible and psychology have nothing in common, which is untrue).

Hate, according to definition is an enormous antipathy. Here comes an interesting part: sympathy and antipathy are being created by the subconscious mind, which we can program, but not control. That function is embedded into the very core of our mental beings and serves as a self-defense mechanism, which is one of the reasons we haven't found a way to produce artificial emotions/feelings, such as love. We can't love nor like anyone nor anything by force! Love, just like antipathy comes naturally.

Countries that prohibited the so-called "Hate" by law, yet, are unable to clearly define it are ludicrous, to say, at least. That law made everyone a criminal, 'cause everyone feels antipathy towards something and someone. It is IMPOSSIBLE to like (love) everybody. Most often, we don't really dislike the people, rather, their habits. For instance, someone like Howard Hughes who suffers from the obsessive-compulsive disorder may dislike messy people. I, for example, absolutely despise liars, cheaters, and the people who provoke then play the victim card to make the victim look like a villain. You may dislike someone who tends to party all night long, while you're trying to sleep to rest enough for the morning shift (job).

Besides, not every love is "Divine". The Bible says the LOVE for money is the root of all evil (Timothy 6:10).


The Solution

It depends, and varies, from person to person, from situation to situation. I can't tell you "do this or that", but I can and will recommend staying away from people that pull out the worst of you. If, however, you'll have to endure being accompanied by them, keep reminding yourself of what you're aware of. The world may try to fool you into thinking something is wrong with you if you don't "love everybody", but the world is insane, quite literally, you shouldn't be paying attention to what the world thinks, says, does. Ignore it, mind your own business and follow the purpose.

I'd especially recommend being polite towards people who are schizophrenics, and prone to fights. Even if you don't start the fight, you'll feel consequences for your part of the responsibility.
