God says we are to love the person and hate their sin. Can a Christian love them IN their sin?


Today many say that all we have to do is love everyone. God says we are to love them and hate their sin. Can we love them in their sin and still please God or are we required to fulfill scriptural requirements and address the sin in order to bring them to salvation. In other words is there a way to bring them to salvation without following the scriptural steps, repent, change, accept Christ as savior, be baptized and follow Him? Or does following scripture make us legalistic and wrong?.

    So - how do you handle those that abort the living child? Do you love the aborted child and love the sinner? Or do you attempt to change the sinner so that you can love both a living child and parent? This is one of those "Do Unto Others".

    Each individual must accept responsibility for their actions. This includes sins associated with their wicked agenda.

    Acts 13:38 “Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you."
