Does God *HATE* sinners? If not, why does the Bible seem to say he does? Why do other passages say he loves sinners? How are we to reconcile these statements? Just how biblical is the saying "Love the sinner but hate the sin"? Who said that? And what were they talking about? Does God "hate" anything at all? What does Catholic theology say about this?
How can you use the Internet to serve God without tripping on canon law? Do you need an imprimatur from your bishop to have a blog or a web site? How about a Facebook page? What if you talk about subjects like Scripture, the liturgy, catechesis, theology, devotions, or other religious subjects? Is the Internet the new Wild West, where anything goes, or is it subject to the Church's law?
These are just some of the questions we address on this week's episode of the Jimmy Akin Podcast!
