How do we
It is not uncommon for sin to be thought of as something contrary to God’s nature. Within this frame, what is and isn’t sinful may be considered unchanging and eternal. But then what do we do about differences between the covenants? For instance, what if the Law of Moses forbid something that the New Covenant allows? Conversely, what if the Law of Moses permitted something that the New Covenant forbids? Or, what about sin before the Flood or before Moses at the time of Abraham? Do these different periods reflect the same definitions of sin or are there differences? If there are differences, how do we define what is or isn’t sinful?
