Public Service Announcement - Week 4: Love the Sinner Hate the Sin

Public Service Announcement - Week 4: Love the Sinner Hate the Sin

Series: Public Service Announcement: Rethinking Common Christian Slogans

Key Passage: Luke 10:27-

Category: Faith

Speaker: Ben Taylor

Discuss a time you’ve heard or used the following slogan: Love the sinner; hate the sin.  What was the occasion?

Discuss the positives and negatives of seeing someone as a sinner. 

Read Romans 2:4- Jesus loves people and accepts them before they ever change. He wants us to do the same. 

Read Luke 10:25-37:  Respond- We want to believe there are people we are allowed to disregard.  Jesus tells us that everyone we come into contact with is our neighbor, and deserves our unconditional love. 

 Respond: To love our neighbors as ourselves is to love people who are just like us; broken image bearers who desperately need God.

Read Romans 5:8 and discuss why it’s so wonderful our God is like this.
