If one does not believe in "Sin"

Please do explain to me how it could be used as a valid argument to prove a point?

If the person you are arguing with, clearly does not believe in "Sin" what other **VALID** argument could you make?

A crime is something punishable by law, because it hurts others- and potentially on a large scale- Sin can not be compared to Crime, they are not in the same bracket.

  • I agree with you OP,

    Isn't is a sin to commit a crime?

    Umm no they are different things. Lying is not illegal, adultery is not illegal, using the lords name is not illegal, etc. A crime is some thing the law and society as a whole finds damaging to others. Sins are something only those who believe in god believe in (with some exceptions) however is not considered bad by law or a society as a whole. The only thing they can possibly damage is ones own soul. That is on an individual and does not harm others. Except adultery which can hurt others, but not actually permanently harm them.

  • LOL that one always has me on the floor laughing sabrina. I love dh response to that. He says if sin believes in him, that must be why it leaves him alone because it knows he'll kick it's ass.

  • I agree with you, OP. Another one that bothers me is the idea that something is illegal because it is immoral. Things aren't illegal because they are immoral. Things are illegal because they infringe on the rights of other citizens.
