In Jesus, we became the new creation where we are asked to love everyone including our bad neighbours. Our neighbours may be evil or bad in our eyes but we must love them in order to please God.
When Jesus was being asked to answer a question concerning the greatest commandments where he told us to love God first and the second one is to love our neighbours the way we love our family members (Mark 12:30-31).
The word of God encourages us to magnify God’s love by living a Christ-centered life where we are to love and forgive our neighbours.
We do not see anything that the Bible speaks about bad neighbours but it says how to deal with them by walking in a godly way.
