HATING THE SIN BUT LOVING THE SINNER ?
Sorry, Viewers. I do NOT know why this was discontinued when it ran for a few years quite well. It was a 4 minuite short clip from an hours long Q&A discussion with a panel of Mohler, Zacharias and Sproul. Both Ravi Zacharias and R.C. Sproul have since passed on. That is the only reason I can think of for having this short clip withdrawn. I have tried to contact Sproul’s Ligonier Ministries for permission, without success.
So, for your benefit let me quote one of Dr. Sproul’s succinct statements:
When the audience question was asked: (paraphrased) ‘God is a loving, forgiving God… He hates the sin, but loves the sinner, so all will go to heaven, right?
Sproul: “LOOK, THIS IS NOT MR. ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD. GOD DOESN’T SEND SIN TO HELL…. HE SENDS SINNERS TO HELL.”
The four minute clip had more interaction from the panel – and a few light moments, but…in a nutshell… this is a food for thought take-away.
If anyone knows whom I might contact to get this short clip re-instated, i would appreciate the help.
FYI: Contact info may be left here under COMMENTS. It will be seen by ONLY me without having to be posted.
