Theres been alot of talk about sin from both Christians and non Christians lately, and Im just wondering what the impact of the term "sin" is for most and also figure out how much of an impact it truly should have. For me, I hear the term "sin" I automatically think of hellfire, damnation, abomination etc....Its a pretty powerful term. But, when you consider that Christians believe we are all inherently sinners from the time we are born and its impossible for us to be free from sin, then it takes some of punch out of the term "sin" and makes it more like human error, or a mistake in judgement that we all do....add in that all sins are considered equally as bad....that sort of takes a little more punch out of the term....finally, if you consider that all sins can be forgiven, it really lightens the impact of the term "sin". Somehow, I think Im lost on the true gravity of what sin is. Im starting to think my first thoughts of "sin" being so terrible isnt quite accurate, just not so sure how far from accurate. Im curious to see what it is to others, and then maybe hear from those who study the subject more.
