Hatred of Evil

Proverbs 8:13 (ESV) … “The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.”


We see these same virtues in the man Job.


Job 1:1, “There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.”


Comments - When you are speaking to a righteous person about the evils of society, they too will express words of hatred against it. But when I have had conversations with corrupt people and I began to talk about truth and integrity, or about sin, they become silent and wish I would change the subject of the conversation. This is because truth brings light into their dark minds and exposes them. It is apparent when you spend time around wicked people that they do not hate sin. [1]
