In this piece, I wanted to examine the psychological illusions people create for themselves in lieu of what cannot be explained. Many individuals turn to prayer, spiritual guidance, or religious direction when faced with the challenges of everyday life. These rituals can provide comfort, healing, and some believe, reward. “Sinner” challenges the reality modern society has created surrounding religion and spirituality, prayer specifically, and poses the question: at what point does faith become fantasy?
