Why were all of Jesus' thoughts and actions pleasing to God while so many of ours are not? How is it that Jesus' emotional outbursts were always appropriate and mine frequently involve sin? Scripture commands us to "walk as he walked," to "be imitators" of him, and to have our minds conformed to his - but where do we even start?
The answer, Scripture teaches, is with our affections. Learning to love what he loves and learning to hate what he hates is the starting point for having thoughts, words and even emotions that are pleasing to God. In this class we'll consider what happens in a Christian life when we begin to act out of love for God, others, and justice rather than love for self, comfort, and stuff. We'll also talk a great deal about hate: what we should hate, why we should hate, and how that hate should be expressed.
