We must always make a distinction between the sin and the sinner. While God abhors sin, He loves all men and seeks to deliver them from their selfish passions. A doctor may hate disease, but not the patient who suffers from it, even through his own fault. Instead he tries to His enemies. Maybe you still consider yourself an enemy of God. Yet God continues to love you. He wants to save you—if you will let Him—through His Son Jesus Christ, who bore the punishment of your sin.
