Love and Hate

Have you heard the phrase “love the sinner but hate the sin” being bandied around in church?

I’ve finally (after all these years as a Christian) heard an explanation of this phrase which finally makes some sense during a Joseph Prince message.

Think about someone with cancer. You love someone to the same degree you hate their cancer because the cancer is destroying them.

In the same way, you love someone to the degree that you hate their sin because of sin’s destructive nature in their lives.
