Further in that chapter Gene Reeves translates those who slander the sutra as having committed a sin. is sin the correct translation, i find biblical terminology slightly off putting.
*Gene Reeves' translation attempts to rope in traditional English-language religious discourses to the Sutra. I'm not convinced this is a good idea. There are, in my opinion, clearer translations available (the BDK translation is quite good, for instance).
