The inward concept is best seen in the case of the tenth commandment, while the outside concept of sin is seen in cold blooded murder.

Is speaking of addiction in terms of sin illuminating, dangerous, or both?
For Christians, abstinence and “temperance” are the only acceptable types of behaviour with respect to the consumption of addictive substances (Cook, 2006). Applying this reasoning to addiction is illuminating because it establishes boundaries in which addiction can be judged. It is dangerous only because it does not recognize the scientific pathology of addiction. Scientifically, addiction is…
