If we're to love everyone as Christians, how do I stop hating humans?

The short version would be our proclivities towards sin, I guess. I can't stand evil, and that we as a species are so easily drawn to it angers me. Obviously I'm not above this either, I sin on a daily basis much as everyone else and I hate it. I can't stand pride and people like >>808526 that always try to tear others down for their own grandiose self-worship. We keep repeating the same mistakes over and over and over again. We haven't grown at all as a species for all of our existence, not one bit. The only things that have changed are the time, place, and people. It's absolutely maddening and I'm sick of it. There are people that try to do good and I appreciate them, but that doesn't change their nature. One good person will always be outnumbered by those that give into their sin and try to destroy others.

I'm just rambling at this point but you get the idea.

The latter, I would say. Even in my anger, I can still acknowledge that there are people that try their best to turn away from evil and I respect that. But even then, the fact that it's simply our nature to be evil and we have to make a conscious effort to do good is what I hate.

Maybe that's a part of God's plan for us. I'm not claiming that I know for certain it is, but just that we don't know for certain that it's not. Maybe His plan involves us being these broken beings made in His image and turning to Him for our salvation. Who's to say? The greater the evil, the greater the triumph over it, after all. Yeah, people are drawn to evil because of our fallen nature, but that just means we need a savior. If everyone suddenly became perfect, would we really need Jesus anymore? That's a thought I don't even want to entertain, a world without Jesus just seems so bleak, even if everyone on it is some unimaginably perfect person.

The better question would be: How do you start tolerating humans again?

Once you tune yourself out of (((contemporary media))) and the vain, vapid lifestyle that the people all around you worship it's getting increasingly harder not to see them as just drones without anything inhabiting them.

Reminder that to love someone is to painstakingly invest in their change & betterment of themselves in the eyes of the lord.

As the other anons have already stated yes it is still our duty to love our neighbor even if our neighbor hates God. Just like how God still loves us even though we disobey Him and make Him sad everyday. Like how a father still loves his kid even though the kid is a royal winnie the pooh up or a junkie. We are called to correct them, not hate them.

If you don't love God you're incapable of loving your neighbor, and if you don't love your neighbor you're incapable of loving God. For if you love God you would obey his commands and love your neighbor as you love God.

So, OP and other anons that hold hatred in their hearts, let go of your hatred and sin no more

Your response to my post made me laugh. I don't know how else to help you to be honest; you created an OP which is borderline trolling, with little background information, and expect me to tell you any different?

Truly I tell you; you are exactly the worst offender in all the things for which you hate others. If you recognized your guilt, your innate propensity to sin, and the fact that you would very likely behave in the same cursed way in their position, you would not hate anyone. But since you have not pondered these truths, nor have you pondered the fact that any time you do not sin it is by God's grace alone, you will go on hating them.

Really the only explanation I have is this. No I have not spared your feelings, but if you listen, you will gradually be free of hatred.

Step one is probably to stop reading youtube comments.

Jokes aside, there are four things people call "love", which could also be described as erotic attraction, affection, camaraderie, and divine love.

Erotic attraction is not something to experience with many people. You do nothing wrong by not having romantic feelings for your neighbor, or the bus driver. But you knew that, so I won't say more on it.

Affection is something less exclusive than eroticism. Along with eroticism, it is the other thing that motivates a person to hug, and embrace, and play. But affection, too, is not something universal. If I were to give everyone on the planet a brief, five-second hug, it wold take over a thousand years of non-stop hugging, and besides, being affectionate with strangers is likely to make them feel uncomfortable.

Camaraderie, or brotherly love, is the love between friends. As fine as it is, it too cannot be universal. I cannot say that I feel about any random man from bangladesh the same bond that I feel with my closest friends, or my blood relatives. I don't even know him!

Finally, divine love, or agape in the greek, is the one every preacher enjoys talking about. Unlike the other loves, agape is an expression of the will. To will the good of another is to love him in the divine sense. Unlike the other things we call love, one doesn't have to like a person to want the best for them. If the block in your path is a dislike for other people, try praying for good things to happen to them. Once you're able to do that without it sticking in your throat, pick someone you know and start doing good things for them. From there, you can try to practice being kind to more and more of the intolerable winnie the poohwits who insist on annoying you with their uselessness and their frailty, and with God's help, you might manage to love them, too.

Everyone are absolutely individually responsible in front of God.

God does not look at humans like at some species(we are not animals) that's need to grow Each has free will either you follow God or not. His Glory is everywhere(He is the Thruth) if

some refuse to acknowledge Him that might be out of willful ignorance. But they are also human like you and they need guidance and must repent and accept Jesus. Remember God is VERY PATIENT.

You never know why people act the way they do maybe some were betrayed in their life and thus will obsessively refuse to do what you consider "good".

Just hate the sin not the person. Realize that most people aren't thinking in eternal terms like christians are, once you understand perspectives you can more easily forgive people and yourself. I know I too struggle with this as well and my temper fluctuates from bad to very bad. I do think it's healthy for a Christian to hate most of modern society, but don't forget people aren't irredeemable until God says so. You shouldn't be idle waiting for God's wrath, you should be active seeking repentance (not just self-repentance)

In addition you are not called to like everyone, you're called to have Charity towards them. That includes rebuking the sinner, instructing the ignorant etc. The spiritual works of mercy are higher than the corporal (feeding the hungry etc). So if you care about someone and rebuke them because you want them to be better etc, you are "loving" them (agape, charitas, charity)

I believe charity is more philia than agape. From what I was taught, agape is like a judge sentencing his son, whom is a criminal, to death but than stepping down from his position to take his son's place at the gallows.

I know how you feel OP. I've had this feeling for years and it comes and goes even though I know it's wrong to hate all of humanity so, I struggle with it now and then. I see people on 4chan talking about how they wish they could sleep with certain women or even rape them and it stirs up so much anger and disgust inside of me. I see posts on Reddit (Yes, I know I shouldn't visit Reddit. I don't visit it very often anymore.) bashing Christian values and it upsets me a lot. When you see all those likes, upvotes, (you)'s, or whatever else people are giving in approval it's very easy to fall into despair and start to hate all of humanity. I try to remember Philippians 4:8 which tells us to think of all things that are good. It also helps to remember that so long as someone is alive and not an apostate that they can be saved because God is just and true. If the truth exists then it can be revealed. Try to see all the sins that people commit as opportunities for them to ask for repentance and to turn away from their sins and to turn to God. Remember that the man or woman who rejects God and his law is a fool who is false. It's good to get angry and offended when you see people reject the law of the Lord so, don't go ending up tolerating sin either.

Everyone sucks, try not to hate the person but the sins.

Hate is a slippery slope, but we are taught no one is irredeemable. God has great power. He asks us to show that power through how we live. I know I'm not perfect, but no one is.

It's easy to see how broken others are. But we cant forget that God is perfect. His judgment will be just to a t.

If we cant imagine how someone could be so horrible, the justice must be beyond comprehension as well. Trust in God means we wont hate another human being, and always see them as human beings. Imperfect from the start.

If we stop viewing someone as human we may become the vile one. Evil begets evil. Hate of another human is an evil thing in the eyes of the Lord.

Can you trust in Him? If not, are you saved? If you aren't, you may be by doing what others have said: give it to God and TRUST IN HIM.

Forgiveness, I would also like to point out: it doesn't mean roll over and allow trespasses to continue. Forgiveness doesn't mean no boundaries. Boundaries are healthy, and forgiveness is too. If a needed boundary is never seeing someone again you feel, they need to respect that. But forgive them by not hating them.

Trust in the Lord anon, I pray we all do and always will. Myself included because Lord knows I'm not perfect. I winnie the pooh up daily.

Amen

Salvation is a gift given by the Love of God.

Race will be irrelevant in heaven. If you view one race as better or any as less good, I have bad news. Heaven is perfection and things like race will be irrelevant, it wouldnt be heaven if everyone was worried about race. It will be a worldly thing that passes in the eternal.

Jesus didnt save via tolerance Jesus saved by love if God. Love even the unrepentant, if they still breathe it is our jobs to love them as God loved us in hope to bear good fruit from that love.

Do not take this to mean to do their worldly things, but in spite of their actions.

We, with our love for humanity, are the contrast to the way the world behaves. If we simply tolerate the worldly, what way do we have to show the redeeming path of Christ?

God desires all sinners, not just white sinners to go to Him. If he just wanted the white ones He probably would have said so. But He said "all sinners".

f6837a  No.810689

Stop depending on them. I hated people, now I just see nothing worth liking in them.

When I gave others benefit of doubt, I'm only disappointed if I depend on them. Whether that's giving me a ride to school when a kid, hiring them to perform a service, or to just trust their judgement isn't self absorbed and that they'll consider others when making decisions. It only causes angst if you depend on this person, and it doesn't matter if they've been dependable for everything else.

Once you see the 'line in the sand' on how their decision making differs from yours you tend to judge them as good or bad (for you).

For example, my mother divorced my dad and took the kids. She had no real job but housewife for the 6 years they were married and to this day I believe she took the kids not out of our best interest but her own, because if she abandoned us she would be on her own. She needed help from her parents (at 31) to 'get on her feet', and there's no reason her parents/family would help her if she divorced her husband and left the kids. How could she explain how she deserves help to leave her husband if not that her husband was bad? How could she explain she deserves help escaping a bad spouse if she left her kids with him to escape?

Before this point she spent most of her youth planning to be nun. Which means she didn't dream about being a mom or wife or professional, she had dreams to be a dependent on something that's survived thousands of years (roman catholic church). So to her kids this is proof that kids were never her first choice and she opts for the path of lease resistance on her own life.

ffwd 10 years and she later gives her teenage-kids the ultimatum, do what I say and don't ask questions or live with your father on the other side of the country. Hard for a kid to swallow this and think their parent is anything but a jerk.

ffwd a few more years and when the youngest is 18, the mother sells the house her parents bought her (when she was 31) and moves to the middle of the country. Doesn't help her kids 'get on their feet' blows all the money she saved in a few years on thoughtless investment ideas, now she depends on me and still behaves like a 'words are louder than actions' mentality of being unable to be honest or consistent in her values.

The point of this is to show that when you depend on someone, in this case I depended on my mother, you judge them based on everything they do because at some point you're waiting for their poor decision making to be selfish and against you better interests. If you depend on someone you don't trust, you're going to have a sour relationship.

As I've gotten older and began to see the differences between all the tribes I've learned people are individuals that'll cling to the tribe that best represents their values, at that time. People in tribes can't always mix and people in tribes aren't independents, they depend on each other. Dependents are immature people, they literally depend on others to survive. They're unreliable in the long-run unless one of their values is becoming independent and they practice what they preach.

You have a choice. To be dependent on others, systems included (religion/government/charities), you have to give up your individuality and make compromises to continue to depend on those systems. Or you become an independent and just learn that others aren't so you know who to invest in and how much you can afford to risk.

advice is dont follow the bible literally but as a meta story. Love means judging fairly where necessary, at least in the biblical sense. The greeks had different forms of love. Loving thy enemy for instance isnt a bouche and roses but knowing everything about them to the point that you actually know them completely. The best way to ameliorate a situation is to understand the people involved and nullify their will to fight. Lessen the blowback so to speak. That's just since we're talking about people. It's a different conception of love I guess but that's really how I see it. Theology is interesting that way. Flexible.

I feel the exact same way. Had an highly abusive parent that blew through all of his savings and went bankrupt while I was in college. Wouldn't have been able to afford it anyways but that dependency I had on that parent made me all the more depressed when they failed to meet any semblance of good standing and expectation one would have with an adult. I struggle between believing in people but also realizing that im just becoming more cynical as i meet more. Worse, the people that feel similarly start becoming machiavellian and scheming as it's too heavy a load to deal with. It's to the point that I dont want to have attachments to people since they all seem to want the same thing, their own self-interest, maximization of their own happiness in a world that fits their view perfectly. For some reason I just keep trying to believe. I think it's a fear of becoming dead inside. I realize however that if I don't let go people will continue to take advantage. They wont even notice their doing it. Why notice it. It always turns out the same.

what I mean is, that people seem to function completely on instinct and self preservation. Im so done with this that Im too depressed to function. Petty inconsequential problems that only end in misunderstanding since no one wants to ask a simple question. I started having daylight hallucinations from being awake and stressed all the time, guilt induced psychosis or psychosis causing guilt. Thoughts of suicide. Erratic behavior. Literally losing touch with reality. Whatever. Only heavy medication fixes the problem. People genuinely disgust me, for knowingly exacerbating this, but for some reason again I have to try understanding them anyways. They're interesting even though that interest has utterly ruined my life. The only thing to do is to work through it and watch things from a distance. It's better as well for a means of survival, but then I guess that's the trap of cynicism.
