Why Americans Dismiss Sin - Reform Judaism

Why Americans Dismiss Sin - Reform Judaism:

"Jews and Christians, to be sure, do not understand sin in precisely the same way, but both see it as a foundational theological category. As a Jew, fresh from the jarring experience of Yom Kippur prayer, I find myself wishing that we would struggle with it more than we do -- separately in our respective traditions and collectively as partners in building a more just society."

Wonderful Op-Ed from Eric Yoffie (and when the outgoing head of the Reform Movement--the poster child of Liberal Religion--talks about sin, it's time to listen). Even for those who don't agree (and I'm sure y'all will be legion) this provides wonderful food for thought as we transition from the High Holidays to the rest of the year...
