Why God Hates Both The Sin AND The Sinner

Why God Hates Both The Sin AND The Sinner

I am pretty sure this is going to get a lot of readers attention.  If you clicked on this link or it caught your eye, I am praising God right now. You obviously either think that this is incorrect as a born again believer or you maybe a seeker of the truth. Regardless of who you are I am about to rock your beliefs in what you were taught or heard or have read.  If you are a born again believer you believe that God loves the sinner.  You err from the truth.  If you believe that the Bible is your foundation in your beliefs, I am about show you why you should never believe the phrase, “God loves the sinner, but hates the sin.”

If you don’t believe the Bible is the final authority of all matters of faith and practice, then you my friend err from the truth as well. The Bible is the core foundation of our beliefs and you err from the truth because you are making a god in your own image.  The Bible refers to that as an idol. If you cannot come to correct decision that the Word of God is the final authority, you might as well stop reading now.  If you think the Word of God needs to be corrected, because you were “TOLD” to do so and you look at the Greek and the Hebrew then you can stop right now. If you have a problem with the King James Bible then stop right now.

Let me tell you why this phrase is wrong and unbiblical.

What does the Bible say about the sin?

John 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

What does the Word of God say about an unbelieving sinner?

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Revelation 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Psalms 7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

God cannot LOVE a lost person because their sin has not been forgiven!  The only way that God can love a sinner is IN CHRIST!

Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

A born again believer has had their sin surgically removed spiritually.

Colossians 2:9-11 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. (10) And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: (11) In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

One God, One Way…

One God, One Way…

There is only ONE God. The God of the Bible He is Jesus the Messiah. There is only ONE WAY to Heaven and it is narrow as the period at the end of this sentence. It is not through Allah. It is not through the Pope. It is not through Joseph Smith. It is not… Continue Reading
