"sin means you are bad."

"and?"

"and, it means you need to pay the church and pray."

As opposed to good which one can't choose, sin you choose.

When do you choose?; only you can define for yourself with the help of the precepts of the church or analysis of what to do for you want. In the remark: the individual is the person he defines himself as man to Be, it is a whole source of sins we are determining ourselves by.

However, by baptism we are capable of refunding ourselves to a new beginning for determination in the world by promises for and against our wishes.

Lastly aah, I remember this one from the nineties, we are not of the world, we are in the world.

Hummmm, I've heard differently, from the latin, or spanish if you prefer, "sin" translates as "without", to the christers the sin is to be without god, an action performed with out he blessing of god, or, against the wishes of god. Beats me how they figure out what gods will is, the book offers contradictory information on the subject.

"Sin" is a tool to talk down on the religious followers, and make them feel guilty and feel bad about themselves, so these followers are ready for being robbed emotionally and financially.

There is no such thing as sin. There are things that are right and things that are wrong, but none of them are sins.

Ohh, there is sin. The feeling in one's body that one must lie about, and re-realizes for the soul that one believes or leaves. That is the sin of reduced state of cleared conscience. One comes to the conclusion that one must think indoctrinated. Hard to do for you, under George Bush it was a snap to do for us; for me it was the knowledge of need so relative that not any explanation for reaping physical nature could give it again. Exhaustion for the necessities of economic ideas was the imposed belief that impressing love was for dancing by begging at the convenience store that the price is right. Whereas privacy made all the housing in the world contingent and sinful.

Sin is living with roof over your head when there is a beggar on the street.

Disagree vehemently to this ridiculous assertion. It is not a sin on my part that there are homeless people.

It's the transgression of God's law.

Interesting, I have great faith that the basic tenets of christerism are mythological and that god does not exist, and, (see above) it is not a sin to believe so because it is done in "good faith".
