"Love the sinner, hate the sin" - is this Christian?

Dear Brothers in Christ,

I heard that "Love the sinner hate the sin" mantra was initially uttered by Gandhi to expound on some principles of Indian non-Christian religious systems. I wonder whether it corresponds to the teaching of Jesus Christ?

hate the sin love the sinner

if that was not true when Jesus Christ said I came to save the sinner because He first loved us even before we were saved so if we don't love that person to draw them out of that sin then Christ is not in us not that we love the sin but we love Christ that is in that person.
