Hatred has a purpose

Hatred seems inconsistent with a God who loves mankind immensely. Yet it is precisely because God loves us so much that He hates the evil attitudes and behaviours that keep us away from Him. Made in God’s image, we too have the propensity to hate. Hatred is a powerful “murder...

How God answers prayers

God hears every single prayer, even our unspoken ones. He faithfully answers each time we seek Him with humble hearts, with responses that are always affirming, instructive and comforting.
