I have seen no where in scripture where anyone went up to non believers and told them God hates them. That's probably because that is completely opposite of the Truth. God loves everyone exactly as they are right now. He only wants them to come to know His saving grace. God will lead them from there. Each of us have a different function in the body. We all come from different backgrounds, with a different purpose in life. When we go to people in judgement we are stripping them of their God given purpose. God never ordered us to go and judge the world, He said to go and make disciples.

In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul talks about spiritual gifts. We all have gifts and we are all a part of the same body. It is important that we realize none of these gifts are more important than another. They all have importance and they all have their place. They are all still relevant until we find ourselves in heaven with Jesus Christ. Paul places great importance on these spiritual gifts, but he places even more importance on love in the next chapter. All those things are great, Paul says, but without love it is all meaningless. If we as Christians don't interact with people in love, they will have no interest in what we have to say.
