Do "heavy" Christians know that they are sinning everyday?

It's just a thought.....Christians do not like to Sin, am i right? Ok, well, did it ever occur to them that polluting GOD's Earth by; driving a car, using plastics, using harmful chemicals or wasting electricity, ect, ect....could possibly be a Sin? I certainly believe that our GOD would not want us to be harming Her/His Earth.

Well God knows we all sin and now aspects it out of us, thus the only way to heaven is to accept Jesus as our savior and not to be sinless. Not meaning to preach, but explain that yes we Christians know we sin everyday and like every one else. To be honest there isn't a person on the earth that can not sin. Now, yes we are ALL polluting the earth and we ALL should try to do as much as possible to not do so. I plan my trips to the store, doctors, schools and what have you so when I leave I am taking the shortest route and only making one trip. While I, like many can not live without driving, using electricity, and etc, I do use as little as possible. I think that is the key and if EVERYONE did so, it would make a huge difference on our planet.

I believe if i can live without "driving" then so can everyone else (well almost everyone). I am 27 with 1 child and i use public transport, ride a bike with my child on the back or i walk. If we aren't making "sacrifices" for GOD's Earth how do we really know that He/She will forgive us? We don't know, we can only believe.

No, not everyone can live without it as you can. Where I live there is no public transportation. In fact it's a 30-minute drive to the grocery. Secondly both of my children are asthmatic and can not be exposed to the weather for prolong amounts of time, as in waiting for a bus. So unless one lives in a city and are in good health, they need to drive. Secondly, I agree we all need to do what we can to spare the earth. However I think not just for out of the fear of sinning, but because it's right. I don't think it's anymore acceptable or helpful for Atheist to be free from saving our planet.
