“God doesn’t sanction our hatred for ourselves any more than He sanctions our hatred for others.”
Based on the casual insults we lob at ourselves, we don’t seem to understand just how demonic and self-cursing the disapproval of ourselves really is. Self-hatred may be widespread, but it was never intended to be an unremarkable part of life. On the contrary, it is sin, it is crippling, and it is, ultimately, death.
This highly personal message from Martha takes a deep look at the issue of self-hatred – its roots, our temptation, the role of Satan, and most of all, God’s solution presented in the Holy Spirit’s ever-brilliant, simple practicality.
“If Satan can get you to hate yourself on a consistent basis, you will die from it if you don’t repent!”
