"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?

God is not forced ever to accept or reject anything. Otherwise, He is not Sovereign, He would have been usurped by whom, by what? I don't do this to create problems, I hope you understand. In fact, I believe, like Tozer said long ago that, "if a few of our christian brothers start gettin a little upset, that's good for em, wakes em up".
