"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?

Only God can see into men's hearts

Mal. 1:3, Romans 9:13, these are the easy ones. What did God find loveable in Jezebel?, Pharoah, Jeroboam, Haman?

The point is I don't have to know what God found lovable in those people. He can see into their hearts and I cannot. He can judge a righteous judgment, I can only judge superficially, so I avoid judging - just as scripture tells me.
