Are you cross at me?

“But that word “sin” … Who “created” it – me or you?

Because everything you have been taught says it was me. Which makes no sense at all. Why go to all the bother of creating all this stuff – only to drop a spanner in the works – and then create a whole theological conundrum complete with a stage, lighting, special effects, a script, an audience, AND a bunch of critics … “

Define sin for me, Paul.
