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.
“In those days they shall no longer say: The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.But everyone shall die for his own iniquity. Each man who eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge. Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.”–Jeremiah 31:29-30
