God’s creation of humanity is a family of nations. When those who are evil hate one part of the family, they hate our Heavenly Father who created us.

Acts 17:24: “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth ….” Verse 26: “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.”

All humans are mixed because of one blood. The mystery of God is: no race should be superior to another. There was an era in which God integrated all nations and gave them one language.

Genesis 11:1: “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.” There were no divisions among them. They lived in unity in one geographical location.

Paul wrote, Romans 12:3: “For I say … to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think ….”

Those who are disobedient to God have caused that heinous sin.

The sin of hate is an infectious disease in the hearts of unbelievers, which spreads into the masses of our society. The evil spirit of hatred feeds diabolical minds with the myth of racial superiority.

Those who practice the sin of hate are feeble-minded. They are motivated by the devil’s forces of evil because they are evil, and also void of the knowledge of God’s words against the sin of hate. The heinousness of that sin deserves the judgment of God, because He commanded us to love one another.

Jesus declared, St. Mark 12:31: “… Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” 

Divine judgment against the sin of hate is more severe than the punishment in which our judicial system implements against hate crimes.

God proclaimed to Moses, Exodus 23:22-23: “… I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. … and I will cut them off.”

There were no weapons in the hands of Moses and the children of Israel. In his hand was the shepherd’s rod of authority from God. God fought against Pharaoh and his army because of their perpetual hatred against the children of Israel; in which they maliciously enslaved them for four hundred and thirty years. 

Exodus 12:40-41: “Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.”  Pharaoh and the Egyptians were deceived because they were evil and thought they were better than God’s people.

God said to Moses, Exodus 14:16: “… lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”

Verses 21-22: “And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.”

Verses 27-28: “And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.”

God was angry with the Egyptian sinners because of their sin of hate. He miraculously destroyed them!

Jesus declared, St. Matthew 18:6: “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” 

Conclusion, 1 John 3:15: “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” John taught the people of God to love everyone regardless of race, color, gender or ethnicity.
