I have come to realize that this is not actually taught in the Bible. In fact God hates sin and the sinners that do sin. It seems to have some legs from Ghandi, who didn't agree with it this saying at all, but was mentioning that it was impossible to do in truth. I am not sure who has been pushing this idea, but it forms a form of Judgement and we are not to Judge others, leave that one to God.
It seems a catch phrase used by the LGBTQ community to gain tolerance from others for what they partake in as a being an abomination towards God. It is to get others to accept them, rather than drive them out as God commands us to do. It is not just limited to the LGBTQ community, but all forms of sinful acts that people do, to justify that they be loved by us.
To Love God and our Neighbor seems contradictory if your neighbor is a sinner. Yahusha meant to love others as your self, in terms do not bring harm to them as you would not want to bring harm to yourself. It does not mean that you need to associate with sinners, but only to remind them that what they do is sinful in the eyes of God and you want no part of it, end of story. We are not to judge others, but simply recognize that they wish to engage in evil and evil tends to want to draw others into their evil for various reasons.
"For Yahusah, to love your neighbor as you love yourself was to practice justice towards your fellow human beings:
Live generously towards the poor and alien (Lev. 19:9–10). Do not steal from anyone (Lev. 19:11). Do not be deceptive in dealings with people (Lev. 19:11). Do not swear in God’s name (Lev. 19:12). Do not oppress, rob, or exploit the poor by paying unfair wages (Lev. 19:13). Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind (Lev. 19:14). Do not be partial to the poor or show favor to the great but judge honestly (Lev. 19:15). Do not commit financial fraud. The word slander in Hebrew is rakhil, and it may be related to the term rokheleth, meaning merchant. (Lev. 19:16). Do not hate your brother (Lev. 19:17). Do not seek revenge or hold a grudge but extend forgiveness (Lev. 19:18)."
I am not sure where I picked up this notion that we are to hate the sin, but love the sinner. It seems that I first heard some big evangelist spewing this out on pulpit sometime ago. It is evil that begets evil as in, you reap what you sow. It is also said in secular terms that people are products of their environments. This is why God hates sinners as much as he hates the sin, to him it is all evil and he casts it all away from him. There are many examples in the Bible showing this simple fact. When we turn to Yahusha and choose to follow him, we agree to love our Father in Heaven and follow his commandments through love. It is through loving our Father that we obey and automatically through love that we no longer make it our will to sin. In fact we do what is righteous when we love and thus we fulfill the law through our love of truth and our Father.
So this all said, we are faced with yet another deception that it is okay to allow evil to reside among us and accept it. For who does this benefit? Certainly not the righteous and those who seek truth. Are we to accept a Government that habitually lies to us and forces us to obey their non righteous laws and steal from us, because we were tricked into believing we were Citizens of a Fiction called a Country? It is obvious how pervasive and strong the indoctrination of the sheeple has become.
