One is a sinner vs One is ignorant
In Buddhism, one is ignorant. But considering oneself as a sinner seems more intense and liberating. Is that wrong?
To consider oneself as a sinner and therefore deserving only pain - is that more powerful in changing oneself? Even Gandhi, though not a Christian, adopted this method. Besides, the word 'ignorance's is so ... lukewarm (for lack of a better term), it doesn't have quite an impact like the word 'sin.'
Just thinking through. Do not wish to offend anyone.
