A) No. He wants us to be free from sin, although He loves us despite of being sinners or evil. B) No. But before He first created Lucifer, God loves him very much, He even appointed him (because God honors His creation) to be His worship leader and given the authority above other angels (Lucifer, Michael and Gabriel are the only 3 archangels of God). After Lucifer become prideful (rebelled) and wanted to be God, he plot a coup d'etat for God in order to kick Him out from His throne and reigns. Would you love someone who discredit and dishonor you despite you just made him? And this is the case of 'hate' that only God knows. C) No. He hates sin, that's why through His son Jesus Christ we will be free from sin and would give way that man would be acceptable to God.

My answers: A) God does not love the evil in us, but he has created us free and the possibility of evil is necessary to our freedom. B) God loves the devil but the devil hates God - that is how it always is regarding the damned. C) This is the same as "A" - God loves our freedom, although this necessitates evil. He tolerates the existence of evil because a greater good comes from it. As far as not being "able" to hate, this is just silly - a trick of language, and not even a very clever one. Again, C.S. Lewis addressed these kinds of oxymoronic questions - I recommend you read him, that is, if you are really serious and not just here to yank chains. Good luck.

its not silly at all... a silly question would be me asking if god can create a rock so heavy that he himself cannot lift. this is actually a very philosophical question, and its not an oxymoron at all. if one is able to love, one must be able to hate. this is common sense, not an oxymoron.
