The Impossibility Of Sinning...I have a problem with sins, seven or more, deadly or not.
First of all, since god is claimed to be all-forgiving. If he indeed is, then there's no need for a hell or atonement for our so-called sins.
Also because of the fact that god is all-knowing and a thing called pre-destiny.
Okay, so christians always argument that god gave Humans free will. So what?
Either we don't have free will and all we do is pre-determined with the result we cannot sin since god made us do the things we do, or, we have free will and cannot sin because god has no business with what we do since he gave us free will, i.e. freedom of choice.
You can't give someone freedom of choice and then punish that person for carrying out that freedom, because that smells a lot like having the freedom of doing what god wants, not what we want.
So, again, Humans are in the impossibility to sin, because it's either god's will or our own god-given right of choice without god having the right to interfere, let alone judge.
This freedom of choice thing also has another dire consequence, and that is that god is no longer all-knowing. Because, all-knowing means pre-determined: our choices have been made by god when he laid out the itinerary of our life. If and when god gave us freedom of choice -even within a limited set of rules- he can no longer "predict" what we're gonna do. If he still knows, well, then that means our freedom of choice is a laugh. Or rather, a lie.
Knowing god, it probably is too. Which makes us his puppets and we are no sinners but the victim of a fool who likes to indulge himself in a spot of cosmic puppet-play.
