Ex: Every religion recognises sin as part of the human experience. It is widely accepted as an obstacle in living a fruitful life.
Ex: Whatever your religious beliefs are, a common core element is kindness. Not treating others well is considered a sin by most.
The word sin can also refer any action that can be perceived as offensive or immoral to another person. In this case, it is not a religious transgression.

Ex: That haircut is a sin! I do not believe that any female should allow their friends to cut their hair as it will always come back uneven.


Pride

Ex: Many students showed their pride by wearing their school's colors and singing the school anthem loudly. They hoped that it would be a stumbling block to the success of their opponents.

Ex: My dog Tito is my pride and joy. I bring him everywhere, and I am sure my heart could explode with love.
