Does Christian Jesus hate All Unbelievers?

John 2:22-23

How, according to Christianity, all Muslims are lying antichrists.

The main passage from the NT referenced was 1 John 2:22-23 (cf. 1 John 4:3) which is as follows:

22 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.

(English Standard Version) [1]

It is clear from this passage that anyone who is not a Christian, or at the very least a Muslim (such as myself), is a liar and an antichrist. The point of this entry is to show how it’s very possible to come to the conclusion that, in Christianity, the Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit hate unbelievers. The main passage to cite afterwards is Proverbs 12:22 which reads:

Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.

(English Standard Version)

Notice the term lips is used here which refers to the person. The lips are an abomination, not just the lies themselves (which are just based on not being Christian, perhaps). This seems to be why the Good News Translation renders this passage as:

The Lord hates liars but is pleased with those who keep their word.

The NIRV (New International Reader’s Version) translation says something similar:

The Lord hates those whose lips tell lies. But he is pleased with people who tell the truth.

The CEV (Contemporary English Version) translation says something similar as well:

The LORD hates every liar, but he is the friend of all who can be trusted.

We know that all non-Christians, or at the very least Muslims, are lying antichrists via the NT and we now know from the OT that Christian Jesus hates liars.

This shows that Christian Jesus hates all unbelievers. In Proverbs 17:4, we read:

An evildoer listens to wicked lips, and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.

(English Standard Version)

In Psalm 5:5-6, we read:

5 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers. 6 You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

(English Standard Version)

A person with a mischievous tongue has wicked lips and evildoers listen to those with wicked lips. Therefore, liars such as non-Christians are evildoers, whom the Lord hates (it is important to add the hatred of a lying tongue as well see Proverbs 6:17).

Moreover, the NIV renders the term “evildoer” as “those who do wrong”. Why can’t this just be general and refer to all people who did something sinful according to the Bible? 

Just on Psalm 5:5-6 we can establish that all people who sin are hated. And the Lord also hates the assembly of evildoers (who are wicked) as well [2], 

Psalm 26:5 reads:

I hate the assembly of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.

(English Standard Version)

In Psalm 58:3, we read:

The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies.

(English Standard Version)

Here, we read that the wicked speak lies. In 1 John 2:22 we know that unbelievers are liars which means that they speak lies, therefore, unbelievers (who are liars) are wicked. 

In Psalm 11:5, we read that “his soul” hates the wicked:

The LORD tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

These passages make it very clear that unbelievers, or at the very least Muslims like myself, are hated by the trinity in Christianity.

For many Christians to then take umbrage at the term kafir, whilst believing (directly or indirectly) that Muslims are lying antichrists who are hated by trinity is indeed quite rich. As I mentioned in my previous entry, I am not used to writing on the Bible, so, if anyone wants to correct me, please send a pm.


[1] It is worth mentioning that the Good News Translation of 1 John 2:22-23 is as follows:

22 Who, then, is the liar? It is those who say that Jesus is not the Messiah. Such people are the Enemy of Christ—they reject both the Father and the Son. 23 For those who reject the Son reject also the Father; those who accept the Son have the Father also.

The term antichrist is not used here but non-Christians are still liars and instead are the enemies of Christ. This makes sense in light of Matthew 12:30 where Christian Jesus says:

“Whoever is not with me is against me.”

[2] This would seem to include places like Mosques during a congregational prayer, for example.

Allah knows Best.
