The argument is predicated on the assumption that God exists (which I noted in my initial response). If God does not, then there is no such thing as 'sin'.

edit--I see where you were going now.

If you strike out sin by striking out the ability to reject God, you've just made it mandatory to accept God. That eliminates free will and the choice to love God or not.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
