Like Marvin Gaye sang, "Only love can conquer hate".

I think it's only achievable between the individual's ears. Let's say someone wrecklessly smashed into my car, for example. I could either throw a pissy fit or confront him in the most reserved way possible. There are times when it's a challenge to love other people, especially when they are careless about others.

there can be no 'weaopon of love' due to the situation of weapon being a tool used to hurt someone, so by definition, it is invalid.

obviously hate is stronger. because people have always looked for better weapons to use on their enemies and blind hate turns out to be the perfect one.

.
Tools of defense also.

Actually it's a reference to a Martin Luther King Jr speach.

i think hate is more powerful----look at the world, it's getting worse with each day, there are more wars now than years ago,it's just we got "used to them", we became less sensitive.
It's really dull to read in my newspaper every day on page 1:
about Bush and his wars, about conquering peace in Middle East,about "threats" from N.Korea and such!Bolllocks

I'd say hate is (sadly) more powerful

(I love this song)
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

I guess even though I have a hard time believing real love exists that I think love is stronger.

hate is often fleeting, when the person that has hate is exposed and becomes educated about what they hate the hate is often tempered.

Love on the other hand is something that comes about with patience and understanding and therefore stands a much smaller risk than hate of fading away with time.

Hate is like a fire, at first it seems violent and powerful but eventually it runs out of fuel and burns out.

Love is like the ocean, sometimes seeming tranquil. But it is always there, changing and shaping all that it touches.

Despite how it might look, that is far from the truth. Europe was at nearly constant war with itself for nearly a thousand years. And the monumental destruction of the first and second world wars has yet to be revisited, thankfully.

Unfortunately now, probably hate. It's easier to do, it's more common, and its sheer power of destruction is downright scary. Maybe I'm too cynical, I'm just overwhelmed by all of the hate out there and love only exists in a few certain places.

If I may make an example of sorts, it's not hard to hate. I can rip a piece of paper in two. That's simple. But can I put the piece of paper back together and make it so that it was never ripped? No, I can't. But love can do that, I've experienced it in my own life. Love is more powerful, but it's a whole lot easier to hate.

Hate is more powerful in the world today according to God. Because all of us are born with sin nature and few of us go to Jesus to have ourselves cleansed of it.

First of all are you saying one can't love without Jesus or God?

Also, how does what you say equate to "hate is more powerful according to God"?
