I can only speak from personal faith and experience. My understanding is that sin is the product of subjectivity and evil is the product arrogance. Sin is always the wrong choice, and evil is any action or thought process that is void of personal love for God (which builds capacity for impersonal love towards all other living creation.)

There is no one shot solution for personal sin and evil. For those who believe in Christ for the remission of sin, every consciousness act/thought of sin should first be confessed privately to God the Father as often as they are committed (1John 1:9). To reverse the growth of evil in the soul, the believer must then abide in Christ's love by learning the Word of God and living on it.

Without faith in Christ, there is no remission of sin

Without 1John 1:9, there is no recovery from sin.

Without the Word of God in a believer's life, there is no restoration of the soul.

Sin literally means "to be in error." Sin is due to ignorance, not subjectivity.

Much ignorance is because of subjectivity. Flawed fake information that have nothing to do with creation on all levels stated as facts and beliefs. Faith is a big part in ignorance. The more connected to other parts of creation the less faith is needed since you can measure instead.

Subjectivity to ignorance.

Buddhism doesn't recognise sin in itself. It recognises karma (action) and vipaka (resulting reaction). For instance, if ones mind is lost in lust, we will be reborn as a lower animal so we can replay those animalistic urges until we realize their emptiness. So to correct lust or pride in this lifetime, we should try realize that fulfillment of those urges doesn't result in everlasting happiness but continual suffering.

"According to the seed that’s sown,
So is the fruit you reap there from,
Doer of good will gather good,
Doer of evil, evil reaps,
Down is the seed and thou shalt taste
The fruit thereof."
