I don't see myself as a sinner, nor a perfect human, but so what? I try my best.

Was Hitler and all the likes of him a sinner? What if he really, really did believe he was doing the right thing, especially in terminating the Jews? Last year I read several books about him, also accounts from secretaries and others who were with him til the end. Apparently he regretted losing the war, but at least he rid Europe of most of the Jews, so he felt he had at least accomplished something.
I see our own politicians, how they believe in sacrificing some lives for a cause. Is it a sin if they can somehow justify it?

For myself, a possible sin would be if I was going to do something I knew was very wrong, but out of greed or pure selfishness I still did it. Premeditated, not something in the heat of the moment, like extreme anger.

I would in cases of doubt pray to the spirit world to help me do "the right thing".

GG.


P.S. Politicians compromise all the time, or they would never get anything done. But non-politicians, should they not listen better to their consciences? I do think so. There is the "voice" inside us, guiding us to do the right thing, unless we are psychopaths. Psychopaths can live very happily without a conscience and trample on everybody to serve themselves first and solely, and lie endlessly AND BE HAPPY!

I don't understand it, as I have a strong sense of conscience, but not out of fear of a nasty God. It is just there.
