Most of us have heard, "love the sinner, hate the sin" but unfortunately this popular faith cliche is just one of those things that really isn't in the Bible. Rather, it's just a convenient and safe way of passing judgment on the behaviors and sins of others.
Our group was founded by Christians, is run by Christians, and continues to create great consternation among many Christians. We are unapologetic in our faith and the fact that our organization is driven and directed by our faith in the almighty God. We strongly believe that God's love and ultimate grace are the greatest sources of joy, hope, healing, and light in the darkness.
We do not "push" our beliefs or faith onto those we help but are always willing to share the light of the world. We operate our foundation based on sound biblical principles and Jesus final commandment, love one another.
Jesus did not teach us to "love the sinner and hate the sin." In fact, he called it hypocritical and taught the exact opposite. He taught us to "love the sinner and hate your own sin." The truth is the Bible never gives us permission to judge the sin of others, by doing so that person commits a sin actually.
Romans 3:23 doesn't say "For the LGBTQ have sinned," it doesn't say "For the criminals have sinned," and it doesn't say "For those who commit adultery have sinned." It says, "For EVERYONE has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard."
With this in mind coupled with the fact that the Bible is explicitly clear that salvation is an act of God, not of man, solely given from His grace, not from your works and actions but rather your faith in him, there leaves little room for debate. God loves you! God wants a relationship with you!
You may have been hurt by people in the church previously and I hope you can understand that those people are speaking out of fear and ignorance, not as the voice of Jesus who want to heal, love, and care for you.
God has a plan for you and seeks to fulfill it through a relationship with you. Will you consider it?
