Treat One Another Honorably
After 70 years on this Good Earth, trying to sort it out, I am fairly certain that people express hatred for other people whom they plan to cheat, rob, injure, and/or murder, to convince themselves that those other people deserve bad treatment. Other people hate back at them because they are afraid of being harmed in those ways. Christianity, with all its flaws, explicitly instructs us treat one another honorably. I am going my absolute best to do so, but it is sometimes surprisingly difficult.
