Today, one of my favorite passages from C. S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity:
“…hate the sin but not the sinner. For a long time I used to think this a silly straw-splitting distinction: how could you have what a man did and not hate the man? But years later it occurred to me that there was one man to whom I had been doing this all my life – namely myself.”
Indeed it is so. The lesson here seems pretty straightforward. If I can reconcile the sin/sinner conundrum with myself, well then, resolving it with that guy ought to be achievable.
