What is a sin?

“Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, takes off your relish for spiritual things, whatever increases the authority of the body over the mind, that thing is a sin to you, however innocent it may seem in itself.” – Susana Wesley (John Wesley’s mother)

NOTE: In her sentence “whatever increases the authority of the body over the mind…” I believe she meant “whatever increases the authority of your desires over your spiritual consciousness…” – Blaise
