Sin is a Crime Against Love

“Sin is always a crime against the Father’s love.  Sin occurs when we distance ourselves from God and incline towards the passions.” (St Sophrony, WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS, p 20)

Against you, you alone, have I sinned,
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are justified in your sentence
and blameless when you pass judgment.

(Psalms 51:4)
