Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 1.7BW

Summary of text [comment] page 60

In both the Old and New Testaments, sins are ascribed to idolatry. “Idolatry” defines “a power in its own right”. The sinner is a slave to this power.

Sin breeds sin. “Sins against God” lead to “sins of ‘man’ against ‘man'”.

The reverse also holds.
