Hatred and Fear

Hatred and Fear

(p.107) Hatred and Fear
On Love

Rushmir Mahmutćehajić

Fordham University Press

“Those who hate God” are none other than individuals who have taken the signs in the horizons and selves, denied what they are and given them names and meaning beyond their Origin and Purpose. They have adopted phenomena from the horizons and selves s causes and consequences, and they attribute creative properties to them. Thus nonbeing and evil have become a beginning out of which the measurable world is drawn and presented as the only possible one. The feeling that phenomena, projects, and structures are independent is transformed into closedness of both the horizons and the selves. That is choosing a god other than God, and reducing Praise to the closedness of the world and the contingent self as its builder and director, which is nothing other than hatred of Him. Beauty and love are only illusions and that they are, in essence, hatred, for they transpose fear of God onto fear of phenomena in the horizons and the selves.

Keywords:   God, hatred, horizons, selves, evil, phenomena, fear
