Indifference

 Adapted from Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer, ©2002:

Hate is an extremely strong and harsh word. Any discussion among believers about hating other Christians would lead most of them to say, “I don’t believe I have ever hated anyone.” If we think about these words of John, however, perhaps he didn’t mean hate as we think of it—feeling great hostility or animosity toward someone. Perhaps our form of hatred today is more like indifference. We don’t really dislike people, but we don’t care enough to help them when they have troubles and problems.

    …I think that it is self-absorption… we only can acknowledge wrong when it is obvious and especially if it affects us…
