THIS IS A COMMENT FROM ANOTHER QUESTION REGARDING THE LITTLE PHRASE "LOVE THE SINNER HATE THE SIN" it is not about pointing out others faults but showing people the way to Chirst. We all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. What separates us is that some of us have our sins removed through the blood of Jesus and others that reject him have not.
I DON'T REJECT JESUS NEITHER DO A LOT OF HOMOSEXUALS I KNOW DOES THAT MAKE THEM SIN FREE? LADIES EXPLAIN THIS ONE TO ME.
It just bothers me that Christians use this phrase and have no idea where it came from. They act like it's actually a verse in the Bible and it's not!
It's actually from St. Augustine. His letter 211 (c. 424) contains the phrase Cum dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum, which translates roughly as "With love for mankind and hatred of sins."
The phrase has become more famous expressed as "Love the sinner but hate the sin" or "Hate the sin and not the sinner" (the latter form appearing in Gandhi's 1929 autobiography).
People use their Bible to validate their twisted ideas and hatred all the time- especially towards gays. Whether you are hating the person or hating the sin, you are STILL hating- which is WRONG. You should love people for who they. Do you have to accept their actions? No, but you should love them regardless.
