Rethinking “God Hates the Sin but Loves the Sinner”

“God hates the sin but loves the sinner.” That’s what we’re tempted to tell non-believers, especially our friends who identify as LGBT. The Bible teaches that every person is guilty of crimes against God and deserves to be punished, but that message doesn’t give non-believers a warm, fuzzy feeling. So, we attempt to soften the blow of this bad news with a cliché.

There are at least two problems, as I see it, with this statement. One is practical, and the other is theological.

How To Share The Gospel With Two Questions

Here are the two questions I use to share the good news:

First I ask, “Do you think heaven is a perfect place?” Most people say, “Sure.”

Second, I then ask, “Are you a perfect person?” People then realize there’s a problem. I let them know that I’m far from perfect. So we all have a problem. If heaven is a real place, then God can’t let humanity into heaven the way we are now. If he did, heaven would have the same problems we have on earth. Wars, torture, rape, injustice, and all kinds of cruelty. In short, it wouldn’t be heaven anymore.

The Frustrating Fallacy of Friendship Evangelism

In this piece, J. Warner Wallace writes about the concept of friendship evangelism. In it, he concludes that strict friendship evangelism is “a natural, fallen, human response to the fear of discomfort and worldly judgment.”

To see how he arrives at this conclusion, read the piece in its entirety here.
