Ok...I came back with a little puzzle...the statement is quite vague. As usual if hints are needed, please just ask

"Uooooooooo...yeahhh I'll do it again! After all it is not so boring to save our sinful soul !!!"

Is the speaker H/A/M?
Is the speaker talking to one person? More than one person? No one at all?
Does this take place in a church?
Does the speaker hold a religious occupation? Is the speaker a priest? Monk?
Is the solution a joke?

The thing the speaker will do: they expect it to save their soul? Literally, like from damnation? To save their life? To make them a better person? Do they expect it to save another person?

Is "doing it": confessing? performing a good deed? apologizing? Doing something immoral? Illegal? Does the action involve another person?

Does the again imply that the speaker has done the "it" before? If so, do they do something else between doing "it"?

Is "doing it" = drinking? eating? something that gives him pleasure?
Is there only one person (the speaker) involved?
motive = for mere pleasure? because somebody else asks him to do it?
"our sinful soul" = He expects to "save" just his soul? or the souls of many?
Does he actually help somebody by "doing it"?
Is there a competition taking place?

Is what he is doing again considered sinful? Or destructive? To himself? To other people? To property? Does he intend later to justify himself in some way? Is he expecting punishment?

Is anything sexual relevant? Anything religious?

 A rollercoaster: any rollercoaster? One specific? The world's first? Invention of the rollercoaster relevant? Is it at an amusement park? Type of rollercoaster relevant?...

I think with these it is time for a $POILER:

The first rillercoaster was installed in USA by its catholic inventor. The main aim of Thomson was to save America to sins...in particular he was concerned by the fact that the most recent ways of entertain people at the time (1880) concern sex and violence. Rollercoaster was thus a way to have fun...in the catholic way

Many thanks to all for having partecipated and very nocely done to Galfisk for the solution
