As a people we seem to have lost our moral compass. Do you believe in sin? Do you believe in forgiveness for sin? How does sin affect our daily lives? Is there a difference in something that is not good for you and sin? Is sin something regulated by the church but has no significance in the real world? Dos the church offer value to your life? Are you concerned about sin and the consequences of sin? Interested in your thoughts.

Very good answer. The thing about killing is that the word kill in English is not the same as the word murder. God basically said, Thou shalt not murder." The truth is that God has expectations of people. Our choice is whether to obey or not to obey.
Thanks, Smireles. And murder is only one human killing another human. My choice of words was intentional. God is not human. Neither are the children of God. And lack of obedience (separation, willfulness) was what shackled us with ego.
I still like your answer but I do not agree that killing and murdering someone is the same thing.
I agree with most of the items on your list. Do you believe that we individually or as a people will be answerable to God for environmental "sins"? Also, Jesus commanded us to love one another and kindness is part of that love.
I believe we are answerable to each other - the workings of the universe are too vast and unknowable to me. I would find myself arrogant to say I can fathom it all.
I agree with you and in short, I guess sin is anything we use for our own selfish purpose to hurt others. That is punishable by our Creator. What we create we get back. Thank you
You have a good list of things that are sin. I do agree with you that we must place God at the top of our list. While we can never know everything about God there are some things we can learn and know on this side of the veil while alive.
