Show Notes

What is sin? Is it the violation of an unchangeable God-given standard? If so, then why has what is considered sin and its attendant consequences changed so drastically from antiquity to today? What role do social institutions, traditions, and cultures play in framing what is considered sin? In this episode Christopher and Riley tackle this complex and fraught subject, in an attempt to come to a constructive, contemplative understanding of sin. First, they attempt to define sin. Next they approach participation in unjust systems and how it can lead to collective condemnation, hampering our ability to minister to those in need. Finally, they analyze Christ’s example and how he himself dealt with issues of sin and condemnation.
