    Randy,You can add what you want to this; but truth is in His Word."The foolish shall not stand in thy sight; thou hatest all workers of iniquity."Psalm 5:5. God says he hates, you say he doesn't. If you have free will, why is it, that you reject what He says? Luke "For with God nothing shall be impossible" When God saves a person, He gives them the LOVE of the Truth.
