Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.2 DJ

[When “man” acts, exercising “his” free will, “he” alters the situation.

Sin does not compromise this freedomconcrete, because as long as a person is alive, “she” can take concrete action.

Sin, however, compromises the situation, restricting the exercise of freedomconcrete.

To me, this seems to match the contrast between the states of grace and self-destruction.]
