"The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all WORKERS of iniquity." Psalm 5:5 (KJV) [emphasis mine] Time after time I've been told that while God hates sin, He loves the sinner. Here David seems to say that the Lord hates those who work iniquity, i.e., the sinner himself. Is this a correct interpretation of this verse? If God does hate sinners, then we're all in trouble! I don't think that's what this verse means, but then, what DOES it mean?
