25. The sin

  1. The sin

    We know that Adam and Eve dissobeyed God and commited the original sin. Since then, men have commited evil acts: they stole, go to war, commit crimes and give great suffering to the world. Men commit personal sins.

   Why so many bad things happens? Because many times we act in the wrong way and commit sin. Sin is the reason of these misfortunes.

   God created us free, and we can obbey his commandments or not. When we don't do it we commit sin. For example: don't assist Mass on Sundays, without a reason, is a sin. To tell lies, stole things, fight and insult with our brothers, dissobey our parents or teachers are all sins.

   We offend God with our sins. We know it by the Ten Commandments and by the Law of the Church. Our parents, priests and teachers remembered it frequently. But we also know sin is a bad thing because God say it deep in our hearth. This is called voice of conscience.

   The worst sins, which offended God a lot, are called mortal sins. Those which aren't so important are called venial sins. Sins can be of though, desire, word, work or omission (by not doing what we must do)

  2. Jesus forgive us our sins

    ""Then some people came, bringing to him a paralysed man, carried by four of them. And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic,”Son, your sins are forgiven." (Mark 2, 3-5). And Jesus heal him. Jesus made two things for him: He heal his body from ills and his soul from sins.

   Jesus came to this world to save us, to forgive our sins and open Heaven's gates.

   This power to forgive sins was given to the Apostles. Nowadays, the Pope, bishops and priests forige us our sins every time we go to Confession in a good mood. Jesus Christ forgive us by means of the priests.

   Nor the Virgin neither Jesus commited a sin in their lives. The rest of us are sinners. If we fail and commited mortal sin, the best thing we can do is to pray the Act of contrition and search for a priest who can confess us.
