But what is Evil, exactly?

When born-again believers speak out against sin we are perceived as judgmental, being filled with intolerance and hatred. Truth is, God's Word instructs us to hate. Perhaps a startling statement when we realize we are to love our neighbors and our enemies (Matthew 5:43, 44), one another (John 15:12), friends (Proverbs 17:17a), and GOD (Mark 12:30). Yet Psalm 97:10(a) and Romans 12:9 instruct us to hate - to HATE evil. "You that love the Lord, hate evil" and "Abhor what is evil." But what exactly is evil? Noah Webster's American Dictionary explains evil as "depravity; corruption of heart, or disposition to commit wickedness; malignity." In the simplest of terms, evil is sin.
