Hatred of Evil

In May of 1994, the Associated Press carried a story about one person’s unusual war on sin. At the public library in Coquille, Oregon, library workers discovered at least a dozen books in which entire pages had been blanked out by a patron wielding white correction fluid. The unknown, self-appointed censor painted over naughty phrases and sexually explicit passages. “They’ve marked everything from love-swept romances to best sellers,” said librarian Molly DePlois.

While conducting a war with white-out is probably not what God had in mind, Scripture does call us to hate what is evil.

“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.”—Romans 12:9.
