146 / Sin And Synthetics #2
When I was in theological seminary, my Old Testament teacher provided a definition of "sin," which he noted was a particularly easy concept to understand.
We are "creatures," he said, and when we assume the prerogatives of the Creator, then we are in "sin."
As I have noted before, the synthetic materials with which we are filling the world (plastics and other synthetics: synthetic "life") do seem to be both sinful and sinister.
