"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?

It's very specific: us and we, not everyone. God chooses some and not others, He is Sovereign and does as He pleases.

Well here is one that is not so specific, except in its inclusiveness:

1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
