Wonderful and true. It's great when those two words can be used in the same sentence!

    What happened to us? Compare the quality of people we had to choose from to lead us in the beginning with what have today.

        Sin?
        Posted on: 2016-03-28 15:59:27   By: Anonymous
         
        What is sin?
        What is a sin to some is not to others.
        Take the Salem witch hunts, many women branded "witches" were murdered because of the "sin" of witchcraft.

        As time progresses, "sins" are not sins anymore.

        Talk about Sharia law.

        The Baptists call so much today a sin.

        It still is illegal to dance in public in some counties in Oklahoma.It is considered a sin.

        Sin most times are in the mind of the beholder.

          We have to answer to the person in the mirror first. If we can stand the he or she looking back at us then God will probably be ok with us to. We all know what sin is without anyone needing to tell us

            It's still illegal to peel an orange in a hotel/motel room in Arizona.

      Well isn't that the truth. Just don't vote for Monika Lewinsky's ex-boyfriends wife, thought the alternative isn't much better. I think anyone would be better though.
      I'd light up a cigar and think about who I should vote for, but the cigar's still wet, and smells like an old dead fish.

Ben was a smart guy but that is not one of his incisive sayings. Sin is pretty subjective and changes with time. "Hurtful" would presumably be more constant (e.g., touching a hot stove burns me as much as ol' Ben).

    It may offend the Gods and we could have a poor sorghum yield next harvest.
