      FYI

      According to a 2009 study by a Jesuit scholar, the most common deadly sin confessed by men is lust, and for women, pride.[20] It was unclear whether these differences were due to different rates of commission, or different views on what "counts" or should be confessed.[21]

      I am confused.

      I thought this was a Christian thing but from your reaction, i am guessing it's just a Catholic thing.
      "None of us has the power to make someone else Love us. But we all have the power to give away Love, to Love other people. And if we do so, we change the kind of person we are, and we change the kind of world we live in"

      There is no such thing as sin, it is all a fabrication by a few to control the masses. One man so call 'sin' is another's 'way of living'. What we consider sin is all in our minds. To do as you please without disrespecting or hurting anyone in relation to the circumstances you are presently in is a better way to live. Let me ask this question, why something like lust is considered a sin? You not hurting or disrespecting anyone and it is all in your mind. To control the basic instincts and desires of anyone is to control the person.

      Hance,
      In an effort to keep religion out of this discussion, I refer you to Kant's categorical imperative which states; “act only in accordance with that maxim through which you can at the same time will that it become a universal law.”
      It's far better to be a dotish anything than a forceripe something.

      lust would qualify then?--
      Truth does not depend on a consensus of opinion.

      I suspect that they are also different from you. See the mystery that is each one of them. Reverence them even as you seek to engage them. Find in yourself the courage, the faithfulness, never to give up on anyone who is given to you as mentor and friend,

      I do not fully subscribe to Kant's statement but I do beleive the principles by which one live by should always be treated as the truth upon which his or her existence is based. I also beleive it important not to become to fundamental in your thinking, always make room within your being for improvement to your own personal philosophy . Truth is personal, will is personal, therefore becoming universal is self-defeating.

      Hance, I would suggest if you are not a religious person, or subscribe to any particular cult (yes, in effect that is what 'organized religion is)...then just think of sin as a ..... moral code.

      The reason why this 'code' was designed, or who designed it, is unimportant, What is important is the question.... Does, the mere existence of this 'moral code' make this world a better or worse place to live in?

      Sin in thought is also wrong (jus saying)
      "None of us has the power to make someone else Love us. But we all have the power to give away Love, to Love other people. And if we do so, we change the kind of person we are, and we change the kind of world we live in"

      Love, the answer is always Love.
