Sin is acting outside of Truth. If we are made in God's image to fulfill a purpose, and do so without sin - that is, without negating our own function, then we would simply perpetuate on in that fulfillment. It is what we are. Death is a snare to those who act outside of purpose. The grave holds those who are outside of Truth. God's light does not die. God is eternal as demonstrated through His Son. We are avatars. We build a world of love, a world of those devoted to love's Kingdom. We maintain a certain hatred of the gross, of the depraved, of mortal earthly inclinations. Our love is directed to Christ and the establishment of His Kingdom. Beyond petty doubts and egoic feelings of self-interest we grasp the largeness of this self. We are one body in Christ. One purpose. One God.
