Mapletree7, "You are either saved, or not saved, and the key is thoughts/feelings, not behavior or action. This is the works/faith distinction.

Are you saying Christians have no concept of sin?

On the contrary. Sin is everywhere, and it is out to get you. That is, it got you a long time ago.

Everybody's a sinner and pretending that one sin (or sinner) is greater/lesser than another is to arrogate to oneself the divine right of judgement."

I am a Christian and I would like to add to your post. Romans 3:23. The link is at http://www.htmlbible.com/kjv30/B45C003.htm ,if you would like to read the entire chapter. 23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
Teresa
