·"does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth": God hates sin. He created us to live a life full of love, kindness, faith, righteousness, joy, and more, not a life of iniquity.
When Jesus walked on earth, He always told the truth--even if it offended the people-- because He loves them. When He spoke the truth, the people listened and repented from their evil ways. If He didn't tell them the truth, we'd probably be living a life of sin right now.
Love is truth. Sometimes the truth hurts, but it's good to know than believing a lie and continuing to live in iniquity.
God gave us His Word for correction, truth, wisdom, etc. In Timothy 3:16-17, Paul wrote, "(16) All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, (17) that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." God gave us His Word so that we can know the Truth and turn from our sins because He loves us and hates iniquity.
