The Reason for So Much Hate – Jn. 15:14-27

It’s not uncommon to hear people ask, “why is there so much hate in the world?” Unfortunately, human nature is to overthink things. We make things more complicated than they need to be. The answer to the question is quite simple. Hatred is the result of a lack of love. Hatred is also the natural state of the human heart. Without seeking God the Father through Jesus the Son, no person is capable of genuine, agape love.

Remember that humanity views hatred as an emotion. Scripture defines it as an action. That action is the default setting for humanity. Now, some hate more than others, just like some love more than others. But where hate exists, love does not. There’s the answer. There is so much hate in the world because the world rejects God’s love made available through the person and actions of Jesus.
