Convinced

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.–Romans 8:38-39

Learning to Hate the Sin and Love the Sinner

Leave a comment

How can we learn to “hate the sin and love the sinner”? We must remember that we are sinners, and we are loved.

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

“Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his
brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his
brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him
to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother
is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness;
he does not know where he is going, because the
darkness has blinded him.”
1 John 2:9-11
