Sin is controversial to say the least but instead of debating it, I try to focus on walking the fine line between not blowing sin out of proportion and not blowing sin off.
If I blow sin out of proportion, a heavy gloomy fog moves into my mind. I lose sight of our unity with the one sinless God and evil becomes real.
If I blow sin off, I become oblivious to my own shortcomings yet become overly sensitive to the sins of others. Egotism and hypocrisy creep into the psychology and I wonder why goodness is being depleted. No rather, I blame others for the depletion as if there is a cause and effect other than God, Love, Truth.
When it comes to sin, it is prudent to have a balanced perspective. God is sinless but I can’t ingrain myself in a routine of mentally and audibly protesting against the reality of sin so much so that I forget to overcome sin in myself.
