Can I Dislike A Brother Or Sister In Christ?

My grandma used to say, “I love their souls but I hate their ways”. But that was the unsaved she was talking about.

Then I think of how Paul had to separate from Barnabas because of Mark. He loved them but could not “hang” with them because of the contention.

Paul and Barnabas Separate
Act 15:36  And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they do. 
Act 15:37  And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark. 
Act 15:38  But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work. 
Act 15:39  And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus; 
Act 15:40  And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God. 
Act 15:41  And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches. 

Just because you are not “hanging” with certain brothers and sisters in Christ that not because a lack of love, but, could just be personality conflicts. Think about it. Take it to the LORD
