Amen to that!

Uh oh maybe that should be #7.

I'm not a Christian, but #1 always bothered me a great deal. Definitely for what was described, but also, there is no sin until one commits the sin so I've never understood the separation of the two. Adultery doesn't exist for me unless I cheat. Stealing isn't something I do, unless, of course, I just did it. So how can "The Sin" be separate and apart from "The Sinner?" To me, you're absolving someone for their misdeeds without them sincerely apologizing or paying any kind of penance for it.

No great trick, once you separate 'sin' as a concept from 'sin' as an event. In the same way transmuting lead into gold was a crime in English law, although no one ever committed it.

I know there's a joke in there somewhere!

Sin as a concept or theory doesn't mean anything. I can talk about adultery all day long. I have to DO it to be sinning. So sin only exists during the action of committing the sin, i.e. sin cannot exist without the sinner.
