sin, yes I do. I'm sort of like a seed wart, no matter how many times the roots get pulled, I come back with a vengeance and spread like maple syrup on a hot pancake. Actually I have had a seed wart and the best cure is not pulling the roots out, it's trimming the heads off (much less pain involved as well).
Thank you for your reply - and for joining in my topic - I appreciate that.

....back to topic
I am likely the worse of sinners, as the Apostle Paul would likely have put it.
The things I know I ought do, I seldom do, while those things which I am fully aware I should avoid doing are the very things I do. Does that sound like someone making a simple mistake?
I hope I made it clear that all errors, mistakes, things done wrong either deliberately or accidentally, can be placed - metaphorically of course - on a line ranging from the very, very worst of crimes to the very lightest of mistakes.

A mistake, as I see it, is different. A mistake is to do something inherently wrong but not necessarily intuitively wrong (maybe I should have known better, but with no one to discipline by example how am I to know for certain one way or the other). [Rat's behind, remembering to close my brackets is like acute arthritis, it only hurts really bad when I take notice of it.]

To err is human, to forgive is divine. I'm definitely human and no where near as divine as I would wish to be.
What do you think is the difference between calling something a sin or not calling it a sin?
