It is currently meaningless to talk about Jesus forgiving sin.

It’s not that Jesus does not forgive sin or even that sin and forgiveness are not essential to faith and life. Sin and forgiveness are meaningless because we have so lost any conception of the kind of love and community for which God created us that we can no longer understand what an action or intent would be such that it could break community and thereby be definable as sin and then capable of being forgiven. Love and community come first. It is meaningless to speak of brokenness prior to experiencing that which is broken.
