God Loves Everyone.
The Bible says that God hated Esau. Malachi 1:3, Romans 9:13
The Bible says that God does "hate all workers of iniquity" (lawlessness). Psalms 5:5
The Bible says that God hates "A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren". Proverbs 6:16, 19

You Should Love Everyone Too.
The Bible very clearly says that we should love. The Bible also explains who we are to love. However the Bible also says,
"Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate Yahweh? therefore is wrath upon thee from before Yahweh1." 2 Chronicles 19:2
King David, a man after God's own heart, said,
Psalm 139:21-24 "Do I not hate them, O Yahweh, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies. Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting."
James 4:4 "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."
2 John is virtually ignored today.
2 John 1:7, 9-11 "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."
The Bible therefore teaches that we should love our enemies, but hate the enemies of our Savior, Christ.

Who is My Brother?
Does the scripture say that everyone is my brother?
Matthew 12:50 "For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."
Mark 3:35 "For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother."
A real brother by scripture then is a Christian who behaves as a Christian.
Who is My Neighbor?
There is a huge disconnect between what your politically correct preacher tells you and what the scripture teaches. Your preacher keeps saying that everyone is your neighbor. The scripture has a very limited definition of who is your neighbor.
Luke 10:30-37 "And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise."
Who was the neighbor?
Were the thieves neighbors? No
Was the priest or the Levite a neighbor? No.
Christ told the story to show who is and who is not your neighbor. Not everyone is your neighbor. Only the man who behaved as a Christian should behave was considered the neighbor.
In Luke 19 Christ told a parable where a certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom. That nobleman is Christ. At the end of the parable Christ says:
Luke 19:27 "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me."
The enemies of Christ are not our neighbors by scriptural definition.
A neighbor therefore is someone who behaves as a Christian and is not an enemy of Christ.
Remember if you help an enemy of Christ you will receive God's wrath. 2 Chronicles 19:2b, 2 John 1:7, 9-11 and others.
Psalm 11:5 "Yahweh trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth."
Genesis 38:7 "And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of Yahweh; and Yahweh slew him."
Just a little Logic they don't teach in churches.
Scripture teaches that God hates Esau, Malachi 1:3, Romans 9:13
Scripture says that Esau is Edom, Genesis 36:1, 8, 19.
The Jewish Encyclopedia says that Edom is in modern Jewry.
Christ never said one good thing about them.
Scripture says you must not pray for or help them or you will be counted as participating in their evil deeds. 2 John 1:7-11.
Just in case one thinks this was temporary, Amalek is a son of Esau.
Exodus 17:16 "For he said, Because Yahweh hath sworn that Yahweh will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
Churches teach that Christ loves everyone.
Christ ignored a woman of Canaan.
Christ called the woman of Canaan a dog.
Christ said, "I am not sent but unto the put away and punished sheep of the house of Israel.", Matthew 15:24
Christ healed the Canaanite woman because she agreed that she was a dog.
