Sin: It's Not Breaking Arbitrary Religious Rules | Big Bible Words, pt.5
"Be a good little boy."
"Johnny, you know the rules ..."
"You know what company policy is!"
Rules. Some seem better than others. Some seem arbitrary.
I think sometimes we think of sin in that context, and assume it's about breaking or keeping the rules ... and those rules might even be arbitrary religious rules or arbitrary divine laws.
But sin is more intrinsic and "organic" than that. That is, it has a lot more to do with our human nature and how we are made to function.
And understand the meaning of sin is necessary to understanding our humanness and what's wrong with the world and the story of the Bible.
Listen to this episode to understand what sin is.
