"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?

When David talks about God hates his enemies who is he talking about?
After all God would not of been on Davids side if he didn't love David or us if he didn't hate the enemies of God so I think its a hard understanding when we say God loves all people like Hitler and others like him after all God hardened Pharaoh's heart. also we can agree God does hate Satan right. and are all children of God no according to scripture only those who believe in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life 1 John 5:20
