Just Love

In the book Torn, Justin Lee references Baptist author Tony Campolo who points out that this phrase is “just the opposite of what Jesus says. Jesus never says, ‘Love the sinner, but hate his sin.’ Jesus says, ‘Love the sinner, and hate your own sin. And after you get rid of the sin in your own life, then you can begin talking about the sin in your brother or sister’s life.’”

Love others. Hate our own sin.
