I am an Eastern Orthodox Christian, and I’d like to ask a question. Christianity talks about sin. A lot. In Orthodox Christianity, sin is conceptualized as “missing the mark.” Indeed, the Greek word for sin is αμαρτία (amartia), which means “miss.” The sinner’s aim has strayed from the goal of union with God. How does Judaism view sin?
EDIT Perhaps I should clarify. I’m not here to proselytize in any way. Really, I wanted to compare Judaism’s conception of sin with Orthodox Christianity’s view. The reason being that the history of the early church (Eastern Orthodoxy) is rooted in Second Temple Judaism, and I wanted to compare/contrast.
