I am entirely focused Fox.
What I am saying is all this stuff you are discussing is totally subjective. What to one is a sin is not to another. What is right to one is not to another. As such we all have different sets of values and cannot therefore generalise about right and wrong.
It is true that we all differ in our perceptions, beliefs, and values and it is unlikely that any two persons would ever agree on all matters identified as sin or not sin. But nevertheless those things which are harmful to ourselves and/or others are a constant whether or not we recognize that they are. There is a Bible passage that illustrates the problem:
(Exodus 34:6-7) - "Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; 7who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations."
This is written from the ancient Hebrew perspective that everything that happens to us is via the Word of God and God is the direct cause of all that happens to any of us. It cannot be taken 100% literally from a 21st century understanding because the actual impact is blunted in many other passages that also recognize that much of what we endure is brought on by our own actions and God does not literally punish the children for the sins of their fathers.
Once you put all the teachings, thoughts, observations etc. together though, a clear teaching does emerge. There are consequences for sin, which would of course explain why a loving God would be against it, and those consequences can extend far beyond our immediate existance and far into the future. We cannot negate those consequences simply because we don't believe that a sin is a sin.
Someone mentions innocents. Such as innocent babies and those killed as collateral damage. Who can say what those supposed innocents were? Were they part of a resistance group? Babies are part of a family and whilst not knowingly contributing to such groups they do form a part of any "disguise" adopted by that group. As such their families remove them from the "innocence" tag.
Many acts of war assume anyone in the way to be "not innocent" at all. Another judgement which I don't agree with but I find it very difficult for anyone here to say to me what is right and what is wrong.
Again those who had no part in an action; i.e. had no ability to choose in decisions made or actions attempted or accomplished--no ability to alter or change the outcome--are the innocents in any given situation. It does not matter what other sins they might have committed.
Anything at all is nothing until a human being adds judgement to it by interpreting the act or thing with their set of values.
Sick, but cannibals see nothing wrong with eating people. I do, but they don't. And so on. It's a matter of opinion, not fact.
Humans create right and wrong, always. With opinions as you are all doing right now.
Again what any one of us considers to be right or wrong is irrelevant. It is the effect or result of what we choose to do that determines whether it is sin. If our negative thoughts, hate, prejudices, lusts, covetousness erodes our spirit, withers our soul, changes us into less than we could be, those things are sin whether or not we recognize them as such and whether or not they directly affect anybody else. Our choices and actions that damage our body or have adverse affect on others now or later are also sin whether or not we recognize them as such. And of course our words and actions that hurt others now or later are sin. Remember the definition of sin is that which harms ourselves and/or others--it does not necessarily have to be recognized as sin.
And we have all sinned and fallen short of perfection.
Jesus could have but he didn't.
But yes, this is my opinion and I do not require anyone else to share it.
