Explanation: (to sin against God=tham bàap phrájâw)
The buddhist equivalent of "sin" in English is "bàap". I have not been in contact with any missionaries in Thailand, so I am not *entirely* sure whether they would use the same term in a Christian context, but I suspect so.
I am using the AUA Thai transcription system, since this computer doesn't allow me to type with the Thai alphabet.
