The Suicide Bomber
Jesus challenged the cherished idea that a person can demonstrate how much they love God by how much they hate sinners and enemies. But unfortunately, the corrupt idea that you can prove your love for God by hating the right people lives on. It's the demonic philosophy of the suicide bomber. Political convictions alone do not produce a suicide bomber. The kind of hate that can produce a suicide bomber – hate of enemy and outweighs love of life – requires a religious element.
The suicide bomber is deeply religious.
The suicide bomber goes to his violent and murderous death with a prayer on his lips.
The suicide bomber loves God.
The suicide bomber shows how much he loves God by how deeply he hates.
The suicide bomber loves God so much that he is willing to kill sinners and infidels on behalf of God and take his own life in the process.
The suicide bomber loves by hating.
The suicide bomber worships by hating.
The suicide bomber gains heaven by hatred.
The suicide bomber does what he does because he loves God. His God. The God he imagines. The God who is on his side. But this is not the God whom Jesus called Father. Brian Zahnd – Unconditional
If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also. John – one of the former 'Sons of Thunder'
