Sins, He Asked

by Rhonda Maneki

He asked me what his sins were -

I told him not to bother shrouding himself in the word sin. All he ever needed to do was admit he made choices and not make excuses.

In my eyes, sins are mans excuse for not taking responsibility for choices that one makes good or bad. Sins, allow the blame to be shifted from yourself to an ethereal excuse for behaviour, giving you some kind of relief from the guilt you may bear.

When all you need to do is live honestly, as honest as you can be with yourself and others.

Our greatest "sin" is denial of responsibility for ourselves and actions.


Author's Note: Just my opinion...
