Honestly I love souls. I have witnessed, prayed, wept with and for sinners but to say I love an individual sinner I don’t even know is silly. I can say I love “ sinners “ in general because I want them saved and that is what God saved me for is to be a witness for them that need him.

What? Of course we can only love sinners and individuals generally. Who would think we meant individually in a silly manner? Why even ask that, though? lol

We are the temple of the Holy Ghost, And Jesus said out of our bellies shall flow rivers of living water. We carry the source within us of the Kingdom River of Life. LET IT FLOW!

Love those with whom you disagree, or whose lifestyles you can't accept. True love does not have to agree with all that a person does in order to love them. After all, Jesus loved us while we were yet sinners, so much so that he died for them! There's no greater love! God LOVES sinners, and HATES NO ONE.
Making the clarification because you said “ person “ like one individual.

But we all know it's impossible to love a person individually beyond the general love for a soul. So, again, why even ask? The fact remains, no matter what an individual does, sinful or not, we still must love each one in the sense we all know and understand as love for souls. I say this because there are the Westboro Baptists clods who think God hates homosexuals. No, he does not. He loves everyone.

I still disagree. Don’t really know what I asked here but is my points...I agree to a point but there are points that god turns people over to reprobate minds that they should believe a lie. I have a hard time believing that there are not people that God hates. He burned up sodom and Gomorrah. That was God doing the killing. Was it to show his love to them? He drowned a whole world again that was God doing the killing. There are people that are in sin and then there are straight evil people. An true evil person is different from someone in sin.

Is God executing judgment on someone the same as hating them?
