Avoiding the Sin Word

Avoiding the Sin Word

Our society avoids the word. But so do many ordinary Christians.
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

How do we deal with wrongdoing? We put criminals in prison, picket abortion clinics, and generally shake our heads at what we call the "ills of society." But have we forgotten that those ills are caused by people-by us? What has happened to the concept of sin? Why do we neglect to acknowledge our own personal faults? This study will examine these questions.
