Not Hate

Contrary to what some may think, and try to teach us,
it is NOT hate to share Truth.
The world gets uncomfortable when truth starts unraveling its web of lies.

“A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.”
Proverbs 26:28

If I know the truth and I see my friend tangled up in a web of lies—
how is it hateful for me to try to break the web?
What kind of love would I have if I hold the key to their freedom
yet let them stay in chains?

The world is blind & deaf to God’s Truth.
No matter the cost, it’s our job to speak the Truth.
Why? Because there ARE some who will hear
and be freed from the chains that bind them.
And that freedom, my friends, is a reward beyond measure.

“This is the verdict:
Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.  Everyone who does evil hates the light,
and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”
John 3:19-21

“I have given them your word and the world has hated them,
for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.
My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 
Sanctify them by the truth: your word is truth.”
John 17:14-17
