In Mark 7;21, Jesus lists a number of sins, one of which is folly. I have never heard of folly as being a sin before. I looked up the word folly and found this…
In 1 Corinthians 11:1 it is used by Paul of himself in an ironic sense meaning egotism or recklessness while in 2 Timothy 3:9 regarding false teachers, it comes from a Greek word meaning stupidity or madness.
I’ve never heard of this sin being in any list to exam one’s conscience. I’ve never heard of anyone speaking of the sin of folly.
What would this be comparable in today’s sins? What would one do to commit the sin of folly? How would one recogize the sin of folly?
