1 John 3:15-16 says, “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”
Our minds are very important. Hate is a very powerful emotion. If our heart is wrong, then we are wrong regardless of our actions. Hate is an emotion that burns in our mind and while it is not murder, mentally it might as well be.
With pure minds come pure actions. Evil thoughts come from an ungodly heart.
