Hi, I’m considering converting to Christianity.
So God is supposed to be actuality itself. And sin is a turning away from God, this actuality. And sin results in death, where the body loses actuality as a consequence from turning from God.
My question is this: hypothetically, if someone committed only a tiny sin (say, they treated someone a little bit unfairly), and then repented, suffered the consequences of that tiny sin (say, their reputation took a little hit) and they grew after that… why do they die fully, rather than the size of the crime matching the size of the consequence? Why isn’t it that their body decays a tiny bit and then recovers?
