When to Love Sinners

“The Pharisees were willing to welcome “sinners” after they repented. The revolutionary demonstration of Jesus was that he loved “sinners” before they repented. This is the way God loves, and this is the way God is calling his people to love. To love like this is their mission because it is God’s mission.” [Findley B. Edge, The Greening of the Church (Waco, TX: Word, 1971), 35.]
