Love and Hate in 1 John

January 27, 2019

In his first epistle, John talks about what it means to live in the light and have an innate love for other people. Then he contrasts it with living in darkness and hating others.

Mark called in to our radio broadcast to ask about 1 John and the issue of love versus hate. How much love is enough? Do we need to prove our salvation by loving others?

In this short video clip, I address Mark’s question and talk about the true context of 1 John in terms of love and hate.
