Q. 1. I cannot find in the Bible the expression, "Love the sinner, hate the sin." Can you help me with this matter?
A. 1. The expression "Love the sinner, hate the sin" is not from the Bible. It originates from St. Augustine's Letter 211 (c. 424) that contains the phrase Cum dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum, which translates roughly to "With love for mankind and hatred of sins." This phrase became more famous as "love the sinner but hate the sin" or "hate the sin and not the sinner" (the latter form appearing in Mohandas Gandhi’s 1929 autobiography).
