The Nature of Hatred

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.  Mark Twain

Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense.

It is the nature of hate to stimulate more hate.  Hate manifested, whether in heated arguments, the perversion of justice, dishonest journalism, destructive riots, or beatings and murders, always encourages more hate. Even when the victim does not initially hate the aggressor, the persistent mistreatment and abuse compel him to frustration, anger and, eventually, hate.  Hate is reciprocal.

This surging hate isn’t confined to America.  All across the world hate and its offspring—harassment, intolerance, abuse, protests and riots, persecution, violence and murder, even genocide—flourish.  Everywhere you look, it grows.   And the left’s hatred of traditional Christian heritage is deepening the anger, resentment and hatred of those it seeks to destroy.

We see this cycle of hate in downtown Portland, Oregon, held hostage by Antifa and BLM.  For months these people have hurled vile attacks on America and on President Trump and his supporters. They have violently attacked people and smashed and burned homes, businesses and government buildings, inflicting millions of dollars’ worth of damage.  Just recently, the object of BLM’s and Antifa’s  hate responded as hundreds of trucks loaded with Trump supporters traveled in a caravan through downtown Portland expressing their  disgust with the rioters.

We saw what happened. There was tension, conflict and violence. Scuffles and fights broke out. Trump supporters shot the rioters with paint balls. A Trump supporter was publicly executed, after which the rioters were heard singing in celebration.   This is how hate works.

And trust me, it will happen again.  Hate rarely fizzles; it only intensifies.  When people are attacked, viciously and personally, when they see their nation and livelihood under threat, their cities burning, and when they see that those in authority are unwilling to defend them, they are compelled to respond.   It is human nature to protect one’s self, including your family, your home and livelihood, your community and friends along with your nation.  

In America, law-abiding citizens who love their country are being forced to choose: either surrender to the radical left and lose everything or grow angry and fight.  To the aggressor, the victim’s resistance only confirms their belief that they are right and the victim must be punished.

This is where we are today. Any person accused of being a racist who denies being a racist, must be despised as a racist. Any person unwilling to support BLM must hate BLM and what it stands for and is, therefore, the enemy. The more Antifa, BLM and the radical left are filled with hate, the more the anger and hatred of their victims grow.

Man does not fully comprehend the destructive power of hate. This is because he doesn’t understand the ultimate source of this powerful emotion. The Bible reveals its source in passages such as II Corinthians 4:4, Ephesians 2:2 or Revelation 12.  Satan embodies hate – hatred of all that is of God, hatred of truth. 

All the hatred on the streets of America’s cities and tumbling from the lips of politicians and media pundits on the left-wing media originates from the devil’s bottomless well of “great wrath.”  

When you look at America (and humanity) collectively, there is no evidence of any movement toward repentance that would reverse the trend toward destruction it is taking—though, if the nation did genuinely repent, God would certainly respond with mercy. Individually, though, the path to repentance is open to you.

One of Satan’s most deceptive and powerful ways of defeating us is to get us to believe a lie. And the biggest lie is that there are no consequences to our own doing. Satan will give you whatever you ask for if it will lead you where he ultimately wants you. Charles Stanley
