rabbee: your statement about not hating, what you call people is wrong. since even G-D hates those, you call also as people. as evidence from this excerpt from the preamble: "for IAM HaShem*, your G-D - a jealous G-D, WHO visits the sins of fathers upon children to the third and fourth generation, for my enemies; but WHO knows kindness for thousands [of generations] to those who love ME and observe MY commandments.<quoted text>
Adam--- can i ever be consider holy, if i love those things G-D hates?
HughBe--- Good question.
If you love wrong, bad or evil things then you are NOT holy.
If you hate people then you are NOT holy.
God loves everybody but he hates the EVIL that people do and that evil can be a little "white lie" which is an ABOMINATION to God or murder. The tuth is EVIL deeds are evil in God's eyes.
Recall, ABOMINATION = stronly HATE.
Finally, not ONE person on this earth is good. We are all full of it.
What makes a difference is God's grace which makes Him imputes righteousness to us and a desire on the part of some to do those things that are pleasing in His sight but we ALL fall short.
i have no doubt, that if you were to actually meet, this more subtle than anyother beast of the fields. you would call him, a people. yet G-D does not call him, or his followers that.
so why am i the only person, here in TheTorah today? when there are about seven billion, of what you consider as people. i do not think you are seeing this, the way G-D does.
and you should not form an image of G-D, as only a g-d of love. since even you gave evidence, of G-D having strong hate too. rejection is a form, of hate also. it says in ThePreamble, that G-D hates HIS enemies. so there is no justification for the claim, that G-D loves everyone.
why would G-D create examples, of those you allege a people HE hates? except as a training guide, on how not to think, say or act. why does G-D send the righteous, except as examples of HIS goodness. i have the same capability, of full range of emotions as G-D. even if i am, less stoic about it. trying to be 100%, like G-D is really difficult. realisticly speaking, i may never make it that close. but it dces not, stop me from trying.
but the way i see this world now, is like -99.xxx% holyness. but if i lie about this, it takes away room to improve. lies only limit, an stagnate your ability to improve. but only the truth, is limitless.
if you lie to your mate, and say that is the best meal i ever had. when it is, the worst meal you ever had. guess what you are going to eat, for the rest of your unrepented life?
