An in-depth study on the behavior of Bible Characters and Today's Christian, when giving into pride, jealousy and envy.
The Bible emphasizes the importance of encouraging and building one another up. However, quite often instead of building up, we are tearing down. Hatin' is a street term that means seeking to bring others down, with our words or behavior and can come from pride, jealousy and envy. The book Why You Hatin'? highlights Bible Characters who allowed their pride, jealousy or envy to lead them into sin. You will be led to examine yourself and your behavior and to look at the love and blessings of God. You will be motivated to ask yourself the question: Why You Hatin'?
It is important that Christians encourage each other; it is vital that we make every effort
to speak a kind word to lift someone’s spirit. But some how we have gotten into the
habit of tearing one another down, criticizing one another and judging, as if it were just
the thing to do. Yet the Bible says that we are the salt of the earth, we are the flavor,
we are the ones to bring forth light into the dark places. The Bible further instructs us:
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. Colossians 4:6 (ESV)
