We can’t have it both ways. We cannot expect the world to follow the teachings of Christ if His own followers are willing to jump ship when something angers them.
Christ said hate is murder and anger blocks our pathway to God’s presence. Pure and simple.
“I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. Settle matters quickly with your adversary.” Matthew 5:22-25
“Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that eternal life does not reside in a murderer.” 1 John 3:15
I guess we’ve got to decide if we believe the Bible or our favorite news outlet. Just sayin'....
