Section 1.4 summarizes Schoonenberg’s description of “sin”. Here are some initial points:
Sin belongs to the moral order.
The moral order is where ‘man realizes ‘himself’ as a person in action and utterance.
Sin is a negative reaction, a refusal and resistance.
Sin is a “No of the person” who shuts ‘himself’ off and hardens ‘himself’ (when openness and self-giving is expected).
Sin is a “No to God”.
