If you are Christian it is a sin just having been born.

Original sin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I would hate for that to happen!

It would be like "guilty until proven innocent"; totally contrary to the American system of justice!!!

Don't go to church or believe in God. Seems pretty simple to me.

I agree 100 percent with above except for (e) ; a mere two beers would put me no where near the legal limit.

guilty is one word, as is diseased.

i've said it before, but, i prefer "diseased" or infected" in this context. all the subjects have the infection, some more than others but it doesn't matter "how much" because any of the disease (even a little) will kill you.

when i took world religions in college, we had to visit a mosque.

one of the clerics there informed us that we should not fart in the mosque as allah would not like that. so presumably farting in a mosque is a sin to allah.

The wages of sin is death. But if he is Christian he believes that Christ is ultimate forgiveness and grace thus he wouldn't be zealous.

There are many shades of gray/sin. So you are saying the penalty for the worst thing in your life is stealing a candy bar is the same as a serial killer?

The bible defines sin, and there aren't really any shades of gray, sin is sin. What you mean when you say sin I don't really know.

Penalty? I was talking about Christianity. There aren't really any penalties involved in it. There is living in God's grace and living outside of it. There is only one sin that will cast you out and it isn't. theft or murder.

So I think you are a little confused.

So the Ten Commandments are just a prank?

That is a rather odd conclusion to jump to.

There isn't really any punishment involved in Christianity.

You are quite the double-talker!!!

You said "The wages of sin is death".

Wages is just another word for punishment in that context, you stooge maniac!
