Dennis Prager: Hate evil: Case for Judeo-Christian values, part VII: "Much of humanity doesn't. But if you embrace Judeo-Christian values, you must."
Must what? Read the article.

Regular readers of this blog know that my favorite Jew is Dennis Prager. If you link to you will find a series of articles making the case of Judeo-Christian values [meaning the Ten Commandments, of course]. He makes a much better case for Christianity than many Protestant preachers.

Hating evil is the flip side of loving good. Ps 97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

The best is to love the good and hate the evil. Second best is to love the evil and hate the good. Worst of all is to refuse to see the difference. According to Revelation 3:16 such people make God sick to His stomach. [This is a figure of speech of course, as should be obvious, even to Biblical literalists. But that is another blog.]

The reason that God gets sick to his stomach over such people, is that they are so santimonious about their superior intelligence and fine sensitivities. They are above good and evil, because they love everybody so much. How could they be judgmental? Judgmentalism is so red state. In this they take their God-given intelligence and ability [which they deny because they think these things are their own] and allow them to be used in the service of evil. As Hosea puts it, Ho 2:8 "For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal." The good gifts of God come from Him, and it is a frightful thing to turn these things to the use of evil, especially while you are pretending to be above good and evil.
