Check out what I read in Portable Atheist, from Bertrand Russell's An Outline of Intellectual Rubbish:

 

"There are logical difficulties in the notion of sin. We are told that sin consists in disobedience to God's commands, but we are also told that God is omnipotent. If He is, nothing contrary to His will can occur; therefore when the sinner disobeys His commands, He must have intended this to happen."

 

So if god is all powerful, we can't act contradictory to his commands, so their really isn't any sin.

 

What do you guys think of this?

... it is sufficient by analysis to comprehend that there is no entity which could have effective volition, that an apparent act of volition when in accord with the inevitable can only be a vain gesture and, when in discord, the fluttering of a caged bird against the bars of his cage. Wei Wu Wei

"Non volitional living is glad living."

I forgot to add Wei Wu Wei's ending.

Sorry, if it sounds a bit preachy.
