I found this article on Facebook. It’s worth sharing.
I found some Bible verses that back up completely what the article is about. And there are more; I compiled this list in under 10 minutes.
“God is love.” 1 John 4:8
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
“‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than this.” Mark 12:31
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
Jesus ate with corrupt tax collectors. Luke 19:1-10
He forgave a sinful woman. Luke 7:36-50
He ate with many sinners. In fact, one of the Twelve Apostles was a tax collector. Matthew 9:9-13
There’s a definite trend here: Love everyone! If you must hate something, then love the sinner and hate the sin.
