I am not sure what my attitude towards sin should be. When witnessing terrible things that are sin such as fornication, lewdness, or abortion for example, what should be my attitude towards such things? Naturaly i feel thoughts of cotempt and rejection, but i am also aware that i should not judge lest i be judged. its confusing. When witnessing such things i know i should become aware of what flaw i have within that seeing these things make me aware of, like maybe pride or anger. from there i should take the steps to eliminate those egos. That being said.... what should my attitude be towards sin? I wish to reject sin in all its forms and turn away from it, i wish to delight in virtue. Is it wrong to hate sin? hate is anger, and anger is wrong. how do i reject crimes without being judgmental? he who is without sin cast the first stone, true. But you have to kill cancer before it spreads, this is also true. In nations with shariah law where adulterers are killed, people tend to commit adultery much much less, even if the thoughts are in their mind, it is not acted upon. This is good. None the less he that looks at a woman to lust after her has commited adultery in his heart already, so he without sin cast the first stone. I hope you can clear up my confusion. Its good to have laws that create the conditions nessesary for cultivating virtue. But that requires judgement of others. please clarify.
