Mickey the hatred is going to eat you alive. Learn to forgive and the hate feelings will subside and eventually go away. You need to work on yourself first.Your heart is not right. Your attitude is wrong toward God,yourself and your step siblings.

You need to get into a discipleship relationship with an older Christian and start studying the Bible with this person. Pray and seek the Lord's forgiveness for this and confess your hatred. Fill yourself with the Word and realize that you did not deserve the Lord's forgiveness of your sins, and you must forgive them for whatever they did to you in the past. Scripture says we are to love our neighbors. It is a command.

Mickey, you need to forgive them and then pray for them. Are you born-again? If not, then you need to ask Jesus to forgive you and ask Him to come live in your heart. Hate has no part in a Christian's life. Once you forgive them, then the Lord will heal you of all the hurt.

I can relate to the question, well,not to the point of completely hating step siblings, but I was definitely jealous of my step-brother for many reasons, the biggest, he had my dad. Now that I'm an adult, I've outgrown some of that jealousy and accept what I cannot change. Just love on them, Jesus said, to love our enemies.

The quickest and easiest way I know of to get over anger, bitterness, hatred ... all these negative emotions ... is by giving. I know it isn't always easy but the Lord doesn't mind if you take babysteps. Start where you're at and give to your step-siblings whatever you can ... compliments, favors, gifts, etc. etc. Do it in secret at first if you have to. Pray and ask the Lord for creative ideas. You will be amazed how quickly your entire attitude starts changing. Overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21).

You might as well take a knife and kill them with it. To hate is same as murder. How come? Because to hate someone can very possibly lead to murder. Why we have such a messed up world. You cannot do anything without God. He has got to help you. Just wishing will not do it. You have to have the power of God.

Friend. You need to go to God, first. Confess and repent for having such hatred toward your step siblings. My heart goes out to YOU, more because hate is such a horrible emotion. You are going to make yourself sick, dear. Ask God to deal with your heart on this issue. You must fogive these siblings before you can move on with your life. This hatred will take its toll on you. Seek help immediately through your pastor, a trusted friend or someone whom you can confide in. I will be praying for you.

When you are saved, old things need to pass away and all things need to become new. We are to put on the new man. The Bible teaches that hatered is as the sin of murder. So HOW? Right?Pray for the indwelling of the HOLY SPIRIT. Diligently seek God with all that you have. Read the word, pray, praise, talk to other christians about Him. Get Christian counseling. It is easy to stay in the past but you must move foward.

First you forgive them for what they did to you to cause such hatred. Then go to God,ask His forgiveness for your feelings and wishes for revenge. Give this all to the Lord,read your Bible ,pray, and praise God in Jesus name. Learn to love as God does us,love suffers long and is kind,love holds no ill will. Make your thoughts,feelings,and walk line up with the Bible's words which are God's way and will for all of His people. Rebuke evil thoughts which come to you in Jesus Name. Keep your eyes on Jesus.

I read this sweet,wonderful Promise in Romans 8:15.God calls us as His sons & daughters. In the Word,it is written "We have not received the spirit of slavery, but
we received the Spirit of adoption,by which we cry 'Abba Father'. As stepparents form a new Family, it is like God sharing promises for a new life in His Blessings.

Ask God to remove it.

And ask God to remove it.

And every time you pick it back up, ask God to remove it.

Sometimes, with things like this, it's a matter of making the act of will to WANT to stop hating.

Get saved right real good, and God will take that hate away....if you let him. You have to let go and let God. If you can get to the root of the problem and find out why you hate you step siblings so much, you might find an answer and hopefully the problem will be solved. One thing, your hurting yourself more by hating someone, by being bitter. If you want this hatred to go away, you need to take the first step toward God. He can't help if you won't/don't let him.
