If someone acquires money but commits a sin (apart from theft or fraud) in order to acquire it, what becomes of the money? Obviously the sin must be confessed, but what about the money?
For example, consider a prostitute. Prostitution is both a sin and a crime, obviously. The prostitute confesses her sins and aims to amend her life, but what becomes of the money in her bank account? She didn’t steal it, nor did she lie to obtain it; she honestly obtained the money, albeit sinfully. It would seem, then, that she is under no obligation to make restitution.
Is she free to keep the money despite the means by which she acquired it?
