I don't think so. I don't know that my father sinned, except in not being a great father, kind of cold and distant. I'm not like that at all, and as far as I know, neither are my 3 older brothers. Dad died many years ago, and I got to visit him one last time even though he was in a coma. He taught me how to fish when I was 3 or 4 years old. He also taught me to love fish and that ended up being my career for about 40 years.

Thanks dad!

This is a deeply religious question and you will very likely get a whole range of (different) thoughts on it, if posted in the "Religion & Spirituality" forum. Many conservative Christians will tell you that we are all sinners (born that way since the fall of man), while the more liberal in the Christian fold tend to see the *sins* of society and, as such, to embrace social justice causes (poverty, sexism, racism, affordable housing, etc.)... although some Christians *do* (put the focus on) both. For the secular, there is the issue of whether sin even exists, etc...
