Systemic Sin

Individual Sin

a teen feels lust


a cop commits a murder


a woman is raped


a pastor has an affair


a business person cheats


a prison guard abuses an inmate

a school bully threatens a child



a man sexually harasses a coworker



a slum lord evicts a poor person


a college student says a racial slur


an administrator tosses a resume with a "black name"


an uncle makes a joke about another ethnic group


a famous athlete commits domestic violence



a young woman is tricked into prostitution


a man is given an excessive prison sentence for drug use


an able bodied person makes a micro-aggression about disability they think is positive

a doctor insults a person's weight/size



a politician sleeps with prostitutes


a man emotionally abuses his wife

an elected official wants more power
Systemic/Communal Sin

women are objectified in movies and advertising

the cop is rewarded rather than penalized


the rapist goes free, media says she "asked for it"

church covers it up and sends family away


cheating is encouraged in the whole company


prison doesn't investigate

both children are punished; teacher says "I don't care who started it."


victim is told to find a job somewhere else if she can't handle it


no one else will rent to her now


his fraternity sings a song full of slurs


she was told to do so by her superior



everyone chuckles and doesn't speak up



the sports team says his personal life is "none of our business"


her religious upbringing tells her she no longer has value

he never gets help for his addiction and is labeled a convict forever


person feels pressure to inspire others by "overcoming" disability


person doesn't get treatment for her actual illness or injury- her weight gets blamed for everything

his voters justify it because they like his policies

her church tells her to submit and obey him

voting restrictions stop a citizen from voting

Required reading: "My sin is not just my own"
