This is sort of a jump off, of another post. I read an answer whom said, "Love the sinner, hate the sin".. and compared it to disciplining a child. Which I understand.. the comparison. My question is..
if you consider someone who is not Christian, a sinner, how do you punish them? Do you fear them and stay away.. casting them out of your life? Or do you befriend them anyways?
How would you discipline your child if they decided to turn away from the Christian faith?
I say it this way, because I see often enough, people condemning those that are non-Christians (yes it goes both ways too). And if the Bible is suppose to say "Love they neighbor" etc. etc.. would you treat a neighbor like you would your child? Or would you treat them in a different manner? If you treat them in a different manner, aren't you sinning by not loving thy neighbor?
