God Abhors What Is Evil

"Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good" (Romans 12:9, ESV).

Others seem to say that since God is love, He should extend redemptive mercy to everyone. But, in that verse, we are told that in order for us to have a genuine love, we have to abhor what is evil and to hold fast to what is good.

So, because God is love, He abhors what is evil.

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
