In my earlier post, “Can “Sin” be defined simply?“, I draw connection from sin to selfishness.
- “When one’s selfishness is to the point of affecting others in a negative way, that’s sin.”
I haven’t been perfectly comfortable with that definition, and I have been challenged about that definition as well. I hope this refined definition is a step in the right direction, and of course, I welcome any input to help bring the definition to where it fits properly.
I have updated it in “The Simple Heart of Christianity” to read as follows:
- sin = an act of selfishness that results in disconnect from one’s greater environment, humanity, and one’s self respect
