Truth Radio's policy on hate speech

There are many well meaning people who center their view of the Bible's teaching on verses like 2 Chronicles 19:2: 20: "And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat, 'Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Therefore the wrath of the LORD is upon you.'"

These folks also sincerely believe that the Bible's encouragement to “love your neighbor as yourself” does not always apply, because “not everyone is your neighbor.”
Pastor Joe Bubar observes
· Hate controlled the soul of Cain who wanted to control God.
· Hate controlled the souls of ten of the brothers of Joseph who wanted to control God.
· Hate controlled the soul of the prophet killing Jezebel who wanted to control God.
· Hate controlled the soul of those who were jealous of Daniel. They wanted to control God.
· Hate controlled the soul of Haman who wanted Mordeci and Esther and all of the Israelites destroyed – he wanted to control God.
· Hate controlled the souls of Pharisees and Chief Priests who wanted to control God.
· Hate controlled the soul of Judas who wanted to control God.
Their hate was so strong that they would do all that they could to do away with Jesus. They wanted him arrested. And it wasn’t just to get him in jail for a while. But before we go after just the rulers – in John 15:18 Jesus said, “The world hated me first…”

Pastor Bubar's observations demonstrate that at the heart of hatred is the evidence that it characterises the world's attitude toward Jesus, and that hatred of men is often the sympton of a person's desire to control God. As a participant with Truth Radio You are entitled to draw from the Bible whatever view of this issue you desire; however, Truth Radio allows the Bible to speak for itself. Here are seven Bible rules about hatred.

FIRST RULE: If hatred means "do something" God Himself will be the one to do it. Not us.

Exodus 20:5 You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them. For I Jehovah your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation of those that hate me.

Deuteronomy 32:35 Vengeance and retribution belong to Me [says the Lord].

Deuteronomy 5:9 You shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them. For I Jehovah your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me.

Deuteronomy 7:10 He repays those who hate Him to their face, to destroy them. He will not be slow to repay him who hates Him. He will repay him to his face.

Deuteronomy 7:15 Jehovah will take away from you all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt which you know upon you. But He will lay them upon all who hate you.

Amos 5:21 [God says] I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not delight in your solemn assemblies.

SECOND RULE: If we kill somebody, we will be innocent in God's eyes only if we did not hate that person.

Deuteronomy 19:6 so that the avenger of the blood may not pursue the slayer while his heart is hot, and overtake him because the way is long, and kill him, and he had no sentence worthy of death, for he did not hate him in time past.

THIRD RULE: Hatred is petty. A king of Israel who hated was shown to be foolish in his hatred. He hated a prophet for telling the truth.

I Kings 22:8 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of Jehovah. But I hate him, for he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.

2Chronicles 18:7 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of Jehovah. But I hate him, for he never prophesied good to me, but always evil. The same is Micaiah.

FOURTH RULE: Hatred is often aimed at God's people. God views those who hate His people as "guilty."

Psalms 9:13 Have mercy on me, O Jehovah; see my trouble from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death.

Psalms 34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked; and those who hate the righteous shall be held guilty.

Psalms 69:4 They who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; they who would destroy me are mighty, my lying enemies.

Psalms 86:17 Show me a token for good, so that they who hate me may see and be ashamed; because You, Jehovah, have helped me and comforted me.

Proverbs 8:36 But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; all who hate me love death.

Amos 5:10 They hate him who rebukes in the gate, and they despise him who speaks uprightly.

FIFTH RULE: We are to love truth and justice. This means, we are to hate anything untrue. Hate ideas -- not people.

Psalms 119:104 Through Your Commandments I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

Psalms 119:113 I hate half-hearted thoughts; but Your Law do I love.

Psalms 119:128 Therefore I count all Your Commandments concerning all things to be right; I hate every false way.

Psalms 119:163 I hate and despise lying; but I love Your Law.

Proverbs 1:22 How long will you love simplicity, simple ones? And will scorners delight in their scorning? And will fools hate knowledge?

Proverbs 8:13 The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil; I hate pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the wicked mouth.

Proverbs 9:8 Do not reprove a scorner, lest he hate you; give to a wise man, and he will love you.

Isaiah 61:8 For I Jehovah love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

Micah 3:9 Please hear this, heads of the house of Jacob, and magistrates of the house of Israel, who hate justice and pervert all equity.

SIXTH RULE: God hates it when we don't love people around us, whoever they are. Both Old Testament and New Testament teach this.

Zechariah 8:17 And let each devise no evil in your heart against his neighbor; and love no false oath. For all these are things that I hate, says Jehovah.

Matthew 5:43-46 You have heard that it was said, "You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy." But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you, so that you may become sons of your Father in Heaven. For He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love

those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax-collectors do the same?

SEVENTH RULE: When people hate us, we should not be surprised. It is a confirmation that we are on God's side. This means that if YOU hate somebody, you are demonstrating that the person you hate is with God's cause, and you are not.

Luke 6:22 Blessed are you when men shall hate you, and when they shall cut you off, and when they shall reproach you and shall cast out your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.

Luke 6:27 But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.

Luke 6:28 Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who despitefully use you. 

Our thanks to Pastor Joe Bubar of Grace Bible Church, Arroyo Grand, California, for a closing thought about hatred:
To overcome hatred we need to remember that God is in control: "There is nothing—no circumstance, no trouble, no testing—that can ever touch me until, first of all, it has gone past God and past Christ, right through to me. If it has come that far, it has come with a great purpose, which I may not understand at the moment, but as I refuse to become panicky, as I lift up my eyes to him and accept it as coming from the throne of God for some great purpose of blessing to my own heart, no sorrow will ever disturb me, no trial will ever disarm me, no circumstance will cause me to fret, for I shall rest in the joy of what my Lord is." -- Pastor and author Alan Redpath (1907–1988)

Conclusion from Richard Palmquist, Chief Financial Officer of Truth Radio:

The above is official Truth Radio policy. If you have a problem with it, I suggest you take up your problem with the Lord. Truth Radio believes strongly in First Amendment rights. Your lips may freely speak what your heart believes. That is your right. However, it is also the right of Truth Radio to have a plumb line against which we measure your message in terms of our agreement or disagreement with what you teach. This statement responds to the charges of such unfortunate intelligence-challenged people as Morris Dees and others, who have labeled Truth Radio as a "hate group."
