      @Porky Pig God doesn’t hate people. Otherwise he would have already cleansed the earth of humanity. He hates behaviors that are harmful to people. Proverbs 6:16
      There are six things that Jehovah hates;
      Yes, seven things that he detests:
      17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
      18 A heart plotting wicked schemes, and feet that run quickly to evil,
      19 A false witness who lies with every breath,
      And anyone sowing contentions among brothers.

      The rest of the Bible indicates principles against behaviors that are damaging to individuals and families in the long run.

      @Petti Labelle read his comment first.

    • Extreme Truth says:

      @Petti Labelle his comment isn’t talking about being prepared, even though you can never be prepare for sth like this. His comment is about Haiti’s poverty. He’s comparing America with Haiti and how The us would deal with this much better. Good thing is that there’s something coming for his america. Death, chaos, disaster after disaster, famine, zombies judgment!!!!!

      @Gospel of Truth Ministries Jesus was the Messiah, a chosen one of god, anointed to deliver us from sin and save us from Satan, to praise him as God isn’t the worst thing to do but it is certainly a perversion of the Christian faith.
