Pastor Paul on hate

Hate sin but love the sinner.

It is much easier said than done. We all have our challenges. But keeping this simple thought in mind, I have found I have been able to reach out to many people and lead them to Christ as Lord that I never would have in past years.

Amen, a wise word from our beloved Pastor. It is OK to hate sin. We hate the devil for he is opposite of God, doing the opposite things. He truly is our spiritual enemy without mercy, from him or for him. Every time we advance, he is there to oppose us, but he is a defeated enemy. As we stay in Christ Jesus he is under our feet. We never face him apart from Jesus.   We are to love our enemies, who are flesh, for they can be redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.  

James 5:16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  

Confess our faults and confess our victories in Jesus, our prayers in him are powerful. Thank you Pastor Paul
