Chalcedon: What’s Wrong with Loving what God Hates?

The podcast from the Chalcedon site.

And my answer is: there is plenty wrong with loving what God hates.

It marks you out as a self-conscious enemy of God.

And the enemies of God first go to hell after they die, and then are cast into the lake of Fire after their resurrection and their judgement before the White Throne of God.

Revelation 20:11-15, ESV

 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

To self-consciously love what God hates means — among other things — to self-consciously love the lie, and injustice, and theft, and murder, and idolatry. To hate one of God’s commandments leads to the hatred of all of God’s commandments; to hate one of God’s laws is to hate all of God’s laws.

That is foolishness, the way of Satan, the way of snakes, the way of death.

I am with the people who hates what God hates, and loves what God loves.

You should follow the way of life, too.

The way of life — for a man and for a nation — is to live in conformity to the will and commandments of God, under King Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit.

To love what God loves, and to hate what God hates.
