A shame-less view of sin, in my eyes, is hardly a biblical view of sin. Remember, sin is a biblical idea; so it’s not exclusively a guilt-innocence idea.

Western theology has a rather guilt-based definition of sin—transgressing the law, breaking a rule, or missing the mark. In my book, It Wasn’t Your Fault: Healing the Shame of Childhood Sexual Abuse through Self-Compassion, I wrote about how compassion is the antidote to shame.

The transformation of the Roman world from polytheistic to Christian is one of the most sweeping ideological changes of premodern history.
