Sinning, as Jesus and the church say, is good. Turn or burn Christians.

TBH, this seems to be diverging about the concept of sin.

Simply put, and I don't claim to see all the cards by a long shot, I think sin is the word we use for a set of intended actions that we know are morally wrong, but do anyways, even when we have no reason to. This isn't strictly about instinct or sex or competition or whatever, but about harmful conscious effort.

That would definitely fall under the header of sin - though it could also include unintentional and unknown evil.

The observation is that human beings seem to be limitlessly creative in coming up with ways to do bad. Bad about big things, bad about little things. Bad when we know it's bad..and even when we don't. It might even be harder to be accidently bad than it is to be intentionally bad - but someone always finds a way. The routinely and pervasively compelling nature of our bad thoughts™ begs for some description - and sin is what people came up with.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
