It's interesting how subjective and interpretive this so-called sin is. Supposedly everything that is sinful is covered by the 10 commandments (according to whomever put themselves in charge of defining what sin is).

For example, did you know that under the 3rd commandment saying "geez" and "gosh" were sinful?

So says a christian website that is dissecting and interpreting the commandments. The text is also surrounded by women in underwear as this site apparently sold ad space to an underwear company.

Now, that is funny!!!


Since they are trying to sell you the next life. Like all good sales people they have to rubbish the product you are already using.


And they wonder why people leave in droves.


Believe this is evil. Cannot accept that a rational Mother could do this to their child


Seriously, though.


Ain't that the truth!


Yes. the sin causes guilt. which I have read causes psychological damage

keeps the guilty coming back for more redemption !


Sin = anything you do that the religious either don't like, wish they could do but aren't allowed to do or are too afraid that Sky Daddy might be watching to try.


Marvellous thing guilt. It shows you who the suckers are!


Sin isn’t even a four letter word!


Those aren't the words I learned in confession 😉

Happiness is forbidden by religion.

Certainly the Abrahamic religions. Many Eastern philosophies seem jovio-centric, however (probably not a word but I’m sure you get the idea)

@Geoffrey51 If it's not, it should be.

And yet if you are unhappy it's a sign you've been sinning. So it's important to pretend to be happy so no one knows that in reality, you are sinning, even though it's probably only in your thoughts that you are sinning.

It's so complicated.


So very true... and the tough part is that some of the things counted as sin aren't really healthy and so they use those as a see this is sin and it's not good for you, therefore everything we say is sin is bad for you.


I don't believe in "sin" or "guilt".
Both are useless concepts.

Useless maybe not so much for the religious leaders.....they use those concepts to control us. Fear is another one. When I was Catholic school...I was terrified about hell and the devil. Gave me a terrible anxiety disorder. They can all go to the hell they created.

@IAmLove Yeah, well, I don't give a fuck about religious "leaders". I got my fill of them when I was a kid. I was raised catholic, too.
As soon as I was able, I stopped going to church, and all that garbage stopped.
I never believed their threats. I heard them all the time, but I never believed them. I always knew they were full of shit, so they couldn't scare me.

@KKGator I wish, looking back, that I had been as smart as you. I left a long time ago, but I really believed their crap for a long time. I cannot even describe to you how free I felt when I left....much to the chagrin of my family and some friends.

@IAmLove Oh, sweetie. I don't know that it had anything to do with me being "smart". It all just never made a lick of sense to me. I think I may have just been too literal as a child, and everything HAD to make sense to me.
Religion was nothing more to me than just more make-believe.
The biggest difference was you sometimes were beaten for not believing in it.
I also knew that wasn't right either.
I promise you, I took my lumps because of religion. Just solidified my position.


That's what made sex so good.
