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 That is the only reason I can think of for having this short clip withdrawn.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.
If anyone is interested in seeing the full one hour Q&A Session by Ligonier Ministries here is the link taken directly from the Internet
Please check the comment section: a viewer has posted a direct link to the 4 min video there, and it seems to work for now… thanks
FYI: Contact info may be left here under COMMENTS. It will be seen by ONLY me without having to be posted.
Ligonier Ministries has graciously granted their permission to run this video. Thank you Ligonier.
