Susan's topic: Sin--do you?
Susan's further qualifications:
Do you differentiate between sin and making mistakes? If you think you have sinned against God, can you say why? Do you use the word sin about yourself? About others? Or is the word, whether verb or noun, absent from your vocabulary?
I cautiously asked a very similar question specifically to those on this board who were not religious. I didn't get very many replies. Susan's is about the best articulated answer I've seen--though it's terribly opaque. Yours is more avoidance than anything else.
Susan personalized; you intellectualized.
Despite your attributions and dismissals, there are clear differences between sins and mistakes. For example, our legal code attempts to work through the distinction by requiring "intent". It's intent that turns a mistake into a crime--and crimes according to law are "mistakes" (or missing the mark) that are deliberate. Deliberate "mistakes" are sins.
But why should I go further when you don't honestly answer Susan's questions?
