The Meaning of Sin

Sin is: in despair not wanting to be oneself before God…Faith is: that the self in the being itself and wanting to be itself is grounded transparently in God.

Sin is the despairing refusal to find your deepest identity in your relationship and service to God.

Sin is seeking to become oneself, to get an identity apart from him.

From the book: "The Reason for God" by Timothy Keller page 162
