Genesis 25, Why was Esau hated and do you think he went to heaven?

Question: Why was Esau hated and do you think he went to heaven? Answer: I do not know if Esau went to heaven, but I do not think that is directly related to the statement that Esau was hated. That statement is found in Malachi 1:3 where God is referring to the nation, not the person. God was speaking about His choosing of the nation of Israel and not the nation of Edom (Esau). If Esau went to heaven, he did so by faith just like everyone else. -PJ
