Hate sin as God hates sin but love the sinner as God loves sinners: as Christ loves us.

Romans 12:9
"Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good."

Ephesians 5:1-4
"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks."

Romans 5:8
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Ephesians 2:4-5
"But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)"
