Love the sinner, hate the sin
sunday, May 5th, 2019
- Brian started out his message by talking about some of the dumbest things that offend him. Are there any dumb things that really offend you even if they shouldn’t?
- The phrase, “love the sinner, hate the sin” puts our focus on other people. Who does Brian say we should spend time thinking about instead (hint: remember his breath mint story)? How can we do this?
- Read John 13:34. What stands out to you about this passage? What questions do you have?
- What would happen if we replaced “love the sinner” with “love people” in our lives? How can you begin doing this starting today?
- Brian’s second point centered on getting rid of our own sin. Why is looking at our own sin more difficult than calling out someone else’s? In what ways can we begin caring more about how we’re living versus how another person chooses to live?
- What does Brian’s key takeaway, “love the sinner, hate your own sin” mean to you? How do you plan on replacing “love the sinner, hate the sin” with this phrase?
