What’s wrong with the phrase “Hate the Sin and Love the Sinner”?
No, the term isn’t found in the Bible? But is the concept there? For folks with secular ears, inculcated in the wisdom of this age, it doesn’t even mattered that the concept is biblically-based. For decades now, new age churches and modern biblical scholastics have been teaching that old school morality is simply out dated and irrelevant. In their wisdom, the Bible is merely writings of men, with no spiritual authority. Therefore, the ancient moral precepts found in Christian tradition may be easily dismissed.
Understanding this prevailing state of the secular mindset in the Church, I don’t go out of my way to confront churches or individuals who’ve been so deceived. Most of my efforts are presented so that believers, can bolster their faith with sound teachings. My writings are never intended to condemn anyone. At times however, a certain bishop, priest, or other preacher my spark my ire, causing me to speak out in defense of the faith. But, even Jesus didn’t come to condemn the world. Without Him they are lost anyway. Every message I present is with one loving purpose, teaching truth to believers in a dead and dying world. In doing so, it is my prayer that God may grace others with a stronger faith, and even prompt some of to shake off their strong delusion.
Let no one deceive himself. If any of you thinks he is wise in this age, he should become a fool, so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written:“He catches the wise in their craftiness.” And again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” 1 Corinthians 3:18-20
There is a “strong delusion” at work in the world which is causing multitudes to follow the politically correct lies of modernism and new age theology. Read the second chapter of 2 Thessalonians to learn more about what I mean. In this light, what was once taught as good is now seen as evil, therefore, simply teaching biblical morality has now become unloving at the minimum, but more commonly called bigotry and hate speech.
