We have all sinned

We have all sinned. What this mean and how do we remedy this? Webster defines sin as: an offense against religious or moral law. How do we as human atone or forgiven for these sins? Some religions believe that God forgives all our sins if we accept a tenet, belief or their God before our bodies become cold. In summary, it is the mind set at the end that counts. But is the mindset at the end truly sincere?

Eastern religions believe that every sin is eventually reflected back to us. It is reflected back to us as sufferings or inconveniences. These reflections are how are sins are cancelled. But these inconveniences also test our resolve to be good. We can continue to be evil when negative causality appears, or we can accept them joyously and plant seeds of joy for the future. By this principle of causality, we have the opportunity to cancel our debts (sins); but more important, it allows us a second chance to prove our resolve to be good. The principle of causality has no favorites. The principle applies the same to both the religious and nonreligious. To those who have been the recipient of the sins, what explanation of atonement seems fairer; and to those who have sinned and hurt others, what beliefs would they want to be true? What explanation would result in a better world?
