Some of the People Whom God Says Hate Him and His Word

With any honest personal examination of the Bible and of ourselves, we must admit that we have exercised ourselves in at least one, if not many of the following lists of sinful things about which God warns us. That means that we are already guilty before the ONLY righteous and holy God. Therefore, we MUST repent and return unto the LORD God through and in His Christ, Jesus, before it is too late for us, for there are no second chances after this body dies; lest we die in our sin, having chosen to live in sin and in eternal damnation. Our natural inclinations are to just follow our own hearts, to "do our own thing", as the hippies used to say. 

Jesus made it clear that THAT natural inclination is the path to hell and eternal suffering, NOT the way to God or eternal peace and joy. In John, Chapter 14, verses 5 through 7, when (doubting) "Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 
6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Romans 1:17-32
17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;    
19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. 

Revelation 22:14-15
14  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 

Don't deceive and cheat yourself out of peace with God Almighty. Get saved. Be born again of God's Word and Spirit. Don't stay lost in the world and its corruption. The choice IS yours, and ONLY YOURS. God does NOT want you to suffer eternally, but if you choose to neglect or reject His ONLY salvation that He offers to you through the Lord Jesus Christ, then YOU shall have chosen to go to eternal death and suffering in the lake of fire that burns without ceasing, for there is no relief there. Jesus, God in the flesh, also warned us about that, in Luke 16:19-31.
