Is the following phrase from the Bible?

Hate the sin, not the sinner
1 2
Ghandi
i don't agree with the phrase. Let's take the sin : murder. Of course it is a good thing to hate the sin murder in common, but murderers (the sinner) are hated too and they deserve that. If there was someone murdered in my close environment i would hate the murderer, whatever ghandi used to say.

Hi Floxflow,

I agree with you. Sometimes people just make such things up to look great intellectuals. In certain cases, it's possible not to hate the sinner. But, of course, not always. So, Ghandi was trying to be a intellectual, rather I must say a prophet.
Not that ghandi wasn't a good man or anything, i just think that some things he said weren't realistic.

Hi Floxflow,

I also meant that. Whatever Ghandi said is not very unusual, he didn't just invent the theory of relativity. Even an ordinary person would know that that it's not always good to hate the sinner. Ghandi was a popular person, therefore people think that whatever he said is very unusual for a common person to think. Although common persons have no less intellect than those pseudo-intellectuals.

Jackson, are you saying that Ghandi was a "pseudo-intellectual"?
If so, I would find it rather offensive, and suggest you read and learn.

Here are a couple of sites you could begin with:

good thinking jackson, although i have to say that those pseudo-intellectuals can, most of the time, express the things they think about better then normal persons with the same intellect. That makes people asume that the pseudo-intellectuals are smarter then themselves.
to anonymous: we don't mean he's dumn or something, we say that not everything he said should be believed and followed just because he said so. And i also think that he was an amazing man who did many many good.
