Love and Hate

"love the sinner, hate your own sins" -- I like that, since we need to love ourselves and we get more mileage out of getting the beams out of our own eyes.

Fits with the LDS meme "don't judge me because I sin differently from you."

I like it, too, Stephen. Thanks!

(I think that love the sinner, hate the sin thing comes from our desire to keep our kids out of harm's way. The stakes are so high, we're ready to throw out important gospel truths like agency and charity in order to protect them or in order to avoid the appearance of condoning evil. Not that we should, of course; the Savior went out of his way to sit with the sinners and love them.)
