Who are you hating, when you think of eternal damnation? And, who or what are you idolizing?

There is no hate in God only in the corrupt words "written in ink." Under the New Covenant, we are to follow the Comforter sent in Christ's name to guide us to the Truth God has "written in our hearts."

I know enough about you to know that you are not under Jesus' new covenant. Whatever is comforting you is NOT the Holy Spirit. Counterfeit love is the idol of many on C-D.

True. Many time this love seems to be only for the sinners, but rarely for those who speaks against sin. Love is also for the sinner, but mostly and first it should be for brothers in Christ who are here against sin, who give them selves to as a target to the world by proclaiming God's values witch world don't know and mostly despise.

And what they get from the other christian's? More despise, but the sinners seems to be remembered with plenty love.

What are these values, if not that of loving your neighbor as yourself?

Counterfeit love...um, would be fake love...phony love...that bogles the mind.
I mean that someone would say that ...even come up with that.
Oh, wait...I know psychology a bit...'you see what is in yourself'...a projection onto others.
Bingo.

An example.. Many see the Creator Father God as pure unconditional Love...someone else sees that also,
but
with a twist...that He is a punishing, torturing, Father that sends any bratty children to an
eternal fiery lake.

Then, turns it on someone else, that WE have the phoney-fake love.
Some of us are not only College Grads , but Post Grads, PhDs even...
I think some are messin' with the wrong people...we have brains...and know
love.

The Scriptures are fullfilled in them.

2 Corinthians 11
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

It appears, you are fitting into this stereotype and fulfilling the Scriptures as you condemn others.
