Summary/Abstract: Sin and crime belong to usual ecclesiastical vocabulary. Nonetheless there are great divergences with respect to how this term is interpreted. This study focuses primarily on the postmodern interpretation of sin and crime looking for possible ways to coalesce this view with the traditional biblical imagery. This clarification is essential in view of the current ecclesial discourse.
