Episode 42: Sin

Sin is an unpopular topic – for everyone, Christians and non-Christians alike. Behind the notion of sin is the idea that we do, say, and think things that violate a universal moral code, and no one likes to think about how they might be wrong. But God has a plan to forgive our sins by clothing us with his son, Jesus.
