Does God hate sin? Yes.
Does God hate sinners? Yes.
Does God love sinners? Yes.
Look at the cross to understand this, its the scandal of grace.
No. No. God doesn’t hate sinners. Unless you’re using some warped definition of hate, it is against God’s character to hate his creation. We are his creation. He loves us. We are all sinners. And he loves us.
My friend, as much as I want to whole heartedly agree with you, I simply cannot. See scripture tells us that God is love and He proves it time and time again from OT sovereignty and salvation of Israel all the way to the very end of Revelation where God defeats satan. But we also see a good handful of passages that show us that our God is just. Look with me at Psalm 5:4-6 “For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you. The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers. You destroy those who speak lies; the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.”
We very clearly see here that God DOES hate evildoers. That is those who chose to live in their sin over God, those who reject Christ and would do anything to end His ministry.
Again Psalm 11:5-7a “The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence. Let him rain coals on the wicked; fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup. For the Lord is righteous…”
Also, look at Revelation, it says that if we are lukewarm Christians God will vomit/spew/spit us out of his mouth. He hates us because we are leading others away from Christ by our sin and evil.
We all need to remember that God is faithful to his promises both ways. Why do you think the Israelites ended up in exile so much, why do you think people end up so completely addicted and dependent on things of this world? It’s because we are not faithful to God and so therefore he is faithful when he says that our temptations lead to sin, which lead to death and eternal separation from Christ. We cannot cut God short simply because we may not like what he has to say to us.
