Work justifies sin

Some people understand that if they work because Adam and Eve sinned, it would be logical to justify sinning own punishment.

In the Dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy is said that, among other definitions of the word "work" should be included:

August. m. Difficulty, disability or injury.
9. m. Penalty, discomfort, torment or unhappy event.

Except when our body is out of power, because he is tired, sick or aged, the work does not have these painful connotations. On the other hand, is usually fun and misses him when we do not have (weekends, holidays, retirement, vacation, unemployment, strike).

However, the cultures that have been influenced by the sayings of the Old Testament of the Bible, have reason to be suggestible to the point of considering that fatigue from overwork or boredom routine excess, are actually a sentence, according to legend of Genesis, God imposed to humans because, at the request of a snake, we decided to eat a fruit that had been banned by the same punished us.

Analyzing the shameful disproportion between the crime and the punishment some say that God became a snake to rest and it was he himself who, to test the obedience of humans, tempted to sin.

Those who give credence to this biblical legend may be particularly burdened by the work because, instead of understanding it as something fun you can get tired and bored, they consider unjust punishment because, of course, no one is sympathetic to the alleged infringement of Adam and Eve.

For these reasons it is reasonable to think that a few people understand that if they are paying a fault that had not now be committed transgressions, shortcomings or sins that at least deserving of punishment make them work.

Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): Trabajar justifica pecar.
