Many people misunderstand the concept of sin. Paap = Paa-ap It means separating yourself from your True self. Any act you do that makes you not feel connected to God is paap. So rather than think in a judgemental way, the Guru is saying that when you recognize your own separation from God, that motivates you to discard those acts that make you feel that way and act in ways that make you aware of His presence in everyone and everything.

We ought not to call ourselves either sinner or good but we must keep doing Simran everyday.
