Fear is a road block preventing metabolization of doctrine from circulating in the soul and eventually choking it out through scar tissue of the soul.
2TI 1:7 “God has not given to us a lifestyle of fear, but of power and of virtue-love and of sound mind.”
Hatred – anger, hatred, bitter jealousy, loathing, animosity, vulnerability to imagined insults or injury, implacability, malice, tantrums, irrational violence, and even murder.
Self-centered category- self-justification, self-deception, self-absorption.
Reaction category – jealousy, bitterness, vindictiveness, hatred, vilification, malice, revenge motivation and operation, inordinate ambition and inordinate competition.
PHI 3:19 “their termination is destruction, their god is their emotion, their glory will be a of shame,”
Turn to 1CO 15:33-34
Eknepsate dikaios – Awake righteously or to righteousness.
1CO 15:34 “Awake to righteousness and stop sinning; for some [believers] have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.”
