    1. What is Sin?

    (From Webster's 1828 dictionary of American English): The voluntary departure of a moral agent from a known rule of rectitude or duty, prescribed by God; any voluntary transgression of the divine law, or violation of a divine command; a wicked act; iniquity. Sin is either a positive act in which a known divine law is violated, or it is the voluntary neglect to obey a positive divine command, or a rule of duty clearly implied in such command. Sin comprehends not action only, but neglect of known duty, all evil thoughts purposes, words and desires, whatever is contrary to God's commands or law.

    2. Who is a sinner?

    (Romans 3:10-11, 23) None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. ...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

    3. Who is bound to go to hell?

    (John 3:16-18) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

    My Dear Sweet Friends,

    For us, there is no sin at all!  Yet, some believe that sin exists, and therefore, for them, it doeth.  But, in truth, one canst not act against God, the Creator.  And, that same Creator exist in every living being in the universe.  Every act of mankind is directed by the Creator, thus no sin. 

    The belief in sin began in the story of the Garden of Eden where it is said that Adam and Eve sinned by eating of the "Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil".  Good is a Creation of God, evil is a creation of humans who came to believe that evil existed after eating of that "tree". 

    Adam and Eve chose to be "conscious" of something that they chose to believe as wrong.  This is evident by the fact that they saw their nakedness as wrong.  Yet, each day of creation, the Creator constantly proclaimed everything as Good, nothing as evil. 

    So, now, in order to return unto the Truth, we each must stop "eating" of the consciousness of good and evil, and accept all things as good, according unto the belief that God, the Creator, is in everyone of us, and thus controls our every act as acts of Good according unto His plan for the world.

    God as Love is Good.  And, the Son, the Christ of the Creator, empties himself that he mayest be filled with Love and doth works of Love according unto that which he is filled with.  Therefore, none know the Creator, but him who is the Son, and those to whom the Son revealeth the Creator unto. 

    To be filled with Love, is to know the Creator.  And, when one knowest this truth, that one comest to know that neither sin nor evil exist in the world.

    From a biblical & theological viewpoint, sin has different meanings: transgression is one, insubordination is a more profound meaning though, and there are some more. A sinner, in connection with the 'profound' meaning of sin, is someone who can be associated with a committed sin - meaning he is attached to it, does not repent. Sin is also connected philosophically to the problem of evil, in the sense of crime, immoral behavior towards others etc. but theologically, it is 'sin' with regard to God then - because God is the creator of all human beings. These are minimal thoughts. One could write 20 hubs on this topic.
