So you either resist sin or fail to resist. What is your fault if you cannot resist sin any longer?

When I can no longer resist the temptation to sin, then my fault is that I can no longer resist the temptation to sin.

Unless you wanted to ask something different from what you actually asked, Batman.

That is the problem that I have. Why it is your fault when you no longer can resist sin? You just resist as much as you can. You break and commit sin once you reach your threshold.

sin does not exist, it is a mirage a myth invented by pathetic minds.

the only sin is having bad taste.

By definition, committing sin is not good. It is bad.

Therefore not resisting to commit a sin is a fault.

You can only go around this by redefining activities from "sin" status to "not a sin" status.

Killing people is a sin. Blasphemy is a sin. Adultery is a sin. Cannibalism of limbs of live individuals is a sin (although not a Christian sin; there is no specific forbiddation of this.)

But eating chocolate, or masturbating, or lazing on the beach is only a sin if you yourself accept it as a sin.

To resist temptation to kill others, therefore, is desirable, but to resist temptation of eating chocolate is only desirable if you want to stay slim.

ETC.
