The concept of sin exists in most of the major religions on earth. It is generally defined as "an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law." Many believers think of sin as being anything that impedes a perfect relationship with God. How do believers determine what is and is not a sin? What do religious texts tell us about this concept? Is avoiding sin a realistic goal? How do believers repent for the inevitable sins they commit? The notion of sin, or committing a crime against God, can lead to deeply negative attitudes towards ourselves and others. Cory and Scott discuss this problem, and consider what sin has to do with morality. Give us a call to join the conversation live!
