No necessarily, what I ask is not exclusively related to religion (I take that you know it) You are not a religious person, so you can’t argue in those terms, but if you look at sin as something harmful you could contribute.
I don't think there is a solution to sin because they're all natural urges.
I don’t know why is it that no-religious people insist in comparing themselves with irrational brutes, humans are rational creatures and that is why they dominated all others, human are not the strongest of fastest of creatures, yet they subdued stronger and faster creature. Why is it so?
It's like telling a turtle he's going to hell if he hides in his shell in times of danger.
There you go, turtles are irrational their solution was simpler, human developed more complex one, humans as rational being that they are built civilizations and they formed organised groups and using this they subdue all others including other human, they formulated moral rules, that is the direction that I hoped this threat could take, anyway thank for your response
You went off the rail here, religion sets out rules for good behaviour of it members and warns us of the consequences, perhaps you could also tell us what solution would you propose to control bad behaviour and encourage good behaviour. For my part I say that controlling Lust will go a long way in solving most of our problems. What you think?
Humans invented all these tools by using the power of reason and there are many things that separate us from irrational brute, humans can propose several proposition and choose the best try it and perfect it, what I am driving at is that most of the responses here are from non-religious members of this board (only God know why they post in the Religion section of the forum) I like to have intelligent discussions so if you focus on sin as something bad/harmful there are common ground for the discussion, are all the member of this board Godless? I was invited from another board and I went to the religious section because that is what interest me, I find it hard to find a religious topic to debate so I started this thread (my second) I am in the wrong section or are you? So for the sake of a conversation I say that sin is a harmful thing. A bad thing a transgression of morality.
Being able to restrain yourself is the hardest thing to, and we as people slip up all the time on little things as well. If one is on a diet and breaks after a week, imagine what it is like to restrain yourself from other things..
Sin as far as my religion goes has consequences in a spiritual sense. However, if we remove religion, than alot of those things aren't actually "sins" as far as society goes. According to the law, it's not a sin to sleep with your wife before marriage. Or sleep with just anyone out of marriage for that matter. However, "sin" or not, it has consequences. Whether it be an STI, emotional shit, or a very lacking marriage, theres always a consequence to things that are "sins". I think of sins as being anything that goes against good morals, whether you believe it bad or not, it doesn't change whether it's bad or not. Drinking excessively is bad for you. Most people will say it's not bad, just bad for you, however drunkeness is technically a sin. There are consequences for that as well, something as simple as a hangover, to waking up pregnant, or having made someone pregnant.
