Sin In a religious context, sin is the act of transgression against divine law Sin can also be viewed as any thought or action that endangers the ideal relationship between an individual and God or as any diversion from the perceived ideal order for human living.In Jainism, sin refers to anything that harms the possibility of the jiva being to attain moksha supreme emancipation. Adam Lost Original Justice by Sinning The Real Presence There are two principal parts to the present thesis the fact of Adam s sin, and the existence of original sin, derived from Adam by natural propagation And although the Pelagian errors in the Patristic period evoked several major condemnations about original sin, the locus classicus for this thesis as for the whole subject of original sin is the Council of Trent.

    1 thought on “Sinning Like a Christian: A New Look at the Seven Deadly Sins”

    1. Read along with Jeff Cook’s Seven: The Deadly Sins and the Beatitudes and Rebecca Konyndyk DeYoung’s Glittering Vices in preparation for a series of sermons on the seven deadly sins. Glittering Vices is far and away the best of the three books. Willimon is too clever, and Cook stretches a bit too far to make the Beatitudes a corollary to the seven sins.

    2. A poor thinker whose writing is emotion- and sacrasm-driven.Take, for example, his chapter on pride. In a span of pages, his "argument" is as follows:- Our culture loves pride (by which he really means gratification, which Ecclesiastes, for one, encourages): management guru states employees should have "pride in their products"- Extreme examples of pride (the sin, this time): Nazis and a serial killer. No joke.- Snark: "Yet really now, is Pride so serious as to be considered a sin?"- A legitimat [...]

    3. Willimon's book on the seven deadly sins is an odd thing. Jokey in tone at times, it also quotes relentlessly from church history. There are wonderful thoughts and quotations here, but the overall tone and organization is really uneven at the chapter level and even from paragraph to paragraph. It is serious about greed, but less so about gluttony. The chapter on lust turns more generally to sin by the end (it is a careful and thoughtful discussion). So, a good read, but far from comprehensive or [...]

    4. Such a thought provoking book full of stories, quotes and insight into the SEVEN deadly sins. I continue to be stirred to think and consider my life in the light of this book. Not full of Bible (the seven deadly sins are never listed as such in the Bible), but worthy of deeper thought as many of these sins are at the root of many others. Very stimulating book, and I am just starting reading Willimon.

    5. This is a provocative book, isn't it? If you are interested in this subject, I highly recommend it. I found the chapters on envy, sloth, and wrath to be rather disturbing. The author is very good in those chapters of bringing these spiritual sins to their natural conclusions, in ways that I had not really thought about before. He is also very good at presenting why these vices are so detrimental to our relationship with God. I like books that make me think and this one does that.

    6. I used this book as a study with a Wednesday night group. Some found it difficult to read, but overall it was very provocative. It certainly cause me to stop and consider the thing I forgive myself for because "it's only human."

    7. Willimon always has compelling ideas and great one-liners, but I could barely tell what his point was in each chapter. He meandered through each chapter without structure or an apparent thesis.

    8. I read this book for my church group. It lead to some interesting discussion, but I honestly don't remember much about it now.

    9. If you know nothing about the 7 deadly sins as I was (raised Baptist), you will find this book informative and spiritually enlightening.
