What "SIN" really means

"Sin" is simply a Latin word meaning 'doing without.' Overall, it means 'to do without God's guidance,' and was originally applied to all we earthling avatars who, as heaven's one-third of "newbie" angels, ditched God for the fantasy of self-reliance.

We've all heard the church tell people repeatedly that "all have sinned and fallen short of God." It's true, all of we people on earth have sinned. But when pastors burble about "sin," it’s not about some wrong done against the church or societal rule as is assumed, but is the original sin of disparaging Godly guidance in favor of autonomy, so that He put us here on earth to play with Lucfifer.

Because we're all God’s fallen angels, thusly, our SIN of failing God is why we're here in the first place. All continued sin is our doing without God's conscience.

Entailed throughout the biblical book of Judges is the message that God desired we all live according to His timeless sensibility where, by analogy, the ruler of a household—at that time an extended family of owners, herders and hands—would mete out a just penalty to an offender based on circumstances. We know it as tribal justice.

But where tribal justice is ruined was in our demanding not that God's conscience rule us, but that we live under a set of laws condemning all people to the same penalty despite extenuating circumstances -- which is not justice;

But then the church seized upon the concept of sin as anything done without their approval; beating people over the head for minor infractions against them, hoping we'd put money in their laps to take away our "sins" and get us into heaven. To buy our way out. Usury.

It became a tragedy worthy of Shakespeare because they, the priests, became the sinners—the ones without God's conscience—and not us.

So forget all church teaching about our being poor, miserable sinners needing them to guide us. It's not true for we who practice God's renewable forgiveness. For any of us can be sin-free, too, and ply the earth in victory.

If any is willing.
