This article discusses the brokenness of the world and roots of human wrongdoing. It argues that the acknowledgement of sin is a precondition for a humane society of compassion and solidarity. The ambiguity of laws is discussed: laws are necessary, but at the same time they lead us to think that we can improve ourselves. This way of thinking entails that, like the world, we can perfect ourselves. This article explores the consequences of wrong perceptions of human beings, brokenness and sin for individuals and society and points to the contribution that Christian public theology can make.
