RE:>> * First he says you have to die to bear fruit. Then he says that those who love their lives will die. And lastly he says that if you hate you life you will live it forever. *
He does not say you will live “it” (the life you hate) forever.
This passage is about being not being born again and
being born again wherein you receive Christ into your heart,
hating your old life(dying to it) and living for Jesus in newness of life(bearing fruit) having received eternal life.
( Someone that has never been born again has ONLY an old life. )
If you love your old life, you will not die to it. (i.e., not born again )
Thus you will lose it. When anyone dies that has never been born again,
they have no more life, thus, they lose it.(life)

RE:>> * You hate your life and probably therefore yourself. *
Where do you get this stuff from ?
I hate my “old life”. That life without the Holy Spirit dwelling in me.

RE:>> * How can you love anyone else if you hate yourself. It's hypocritical. *
Where did you go ? Are you OK ?
I don’t hate myself. I hate my old life.
Do you really think I’m hypocritical ?

RE:>> * But we have already covered this. *
Apparently we need to cover it some more.
RE:>> * You just do not read my posts *
Yes. I do read your posts, but not always timely. I am behind for sure.

Love, Eric %^)
