The Watchtower, October 1, 1952, p. 599

"We must hate in the truest sense, which is to regard with extreme and active aversion, to consider as loathsome, odious, filthy, to detest. Surely any haters of God are not fit to live on his beautiful earthÉ What do you do with anything loathsome or repugnant that you detest and abhor? The answer is simple. You get away from it or remove it from your presence."

The Watchtower, July 15, 1961, p. 420

"When a person persists in a way of badness after knowing what is right, when the bad becomes so ingrained that it is an inseparable part of his make-up, then in order to hate what is bad a Christian must hate the person with whom the badness is inseparably linked.. Jesus did not mean for us to love the hardened enemies of Jehovah"

The Watchtower, July 15, 1974, p. 442

"You have seen the benefit of godly love, but do you know how to hate?ÉThese very strong words are an expression of godly hate, and you too must have this quality to be pleasing to God. Hate causes a feeling of disgust to well up inside you. You loathe, abhor, despise the object of your hatredÉGodly hatred never has as its object our Christian brothers, no matter how imperfect."

The Watchtower, June 15, 1980, p. 8

"More than that, we want to hate those who willfully show themselves haters of Jehovah, haters of what is good"

The Watchtower, October 1, 1993, p. 19

"Apostasy is, in reality, a rebellion against Jehovah. Some apostates profess to know and serve God, but they reject teachings or requirements set out in his Word. Others claim to believe the Bible, but they reject Jehovah's organization and actively try to hinder its work. When they deliberately choose such badness after knowing what is right, when the bad becomes so ingrained that it is an inseparable part of their makeup, then a Christian must hate (in the Biblical sense of the word) those who have inseparable attached themselves to the badness."

The Watchtower, June 15, 1995, p. 7

"There is a difference, however, between hating the wrong and hating the person who commits the wrong."

The Watchtower, Jun. 15, 1995, p. 8

"Yes, the international society of Jehovah's Witnesses is living proof that hatred can be abolished. It is a foreglimpse of a worldwide program to eliminate hatred and its causes."
