"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?

Repentance is the key.

We hate what Jehovah hates and love what he loves. Ezekiel ch. 3 goes into this in detail, right down to our day. Cf. Jude 20-23. And remember that Mt 18:12-17 contains our proper motive in v. 15: ... If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
