James 4:17 sums it up: "Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin." Sin appears to be contingent upon knowing right from wrong and choosing to ignore the 'right' and/or 'do wrong' (knowing it's wrong). There are absolute truths, then there are individiual convictions of what is 'right' or 'wrong'. For instance, Rom 14:1-2 state, "Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only." The passage goes on about how God accepts us with our personal convictions of faith (what we believe to be 'right' and do or not do it).
ANYTHING THAT IS AGANIST GOD IS A SIN.All unrighteousness is sin
Sin, in religion, is the concept of acts that violate a moral rule.
Sin is rebellion against God & sin causes us to be separated from God.
To be Born again Rom 10:9-10 by accepting Jesus as our Lord is the only way to reverse sins effects so we can enter into His presence, so we can pray & be heard. Be reconciled to God by accepting the free gift of salvation that Jesus died for.
In the end a life without Jesus = death eternal separation from God. Sin also means death in the physical since like an early death. God says if we don't repent & allow Him to restore us then we will die in our sin.
The spirit of the Lord=freedom-
Sinning is belonging to that group of people who do not tithe.
Sin is the inability to have eternal life, the result of having sin, is death, a judgment for being guilty of being adverse to eternal life. Sin also rejects Eternal life
Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Sin is any thought, word, or deed that does not line with God's position on holiness as outlined in the Bible.
I just wrote a great hub answering this question! How serendipitous!

Sin from a purely dictionary point of view is to fall short of the mark set by God. Thus all sin.
To invert one's discernment.
To deceive one's own self.
To label a false thought as true.
To label a true thought as false.
Sin is a trangression of the law. (Gods law)
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Sin, therefore, is anything which falls short of Gods glory. Gods glory is revealed to us through His law and through the fulfilling of that as seen in the life of Jesus.
Mans chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

The Bible says that all one has to do is ask for forgiveness. Now being that, do you think that Satan might have already asked God for forgiveness? Now before you rattle off scripture.....I don't believe...but I could be wrong....that the Bible has nothing to say on that.

To Christians, Why is it you serve Jesus?There were those who followed Jesus for gain and was so severely criterized that they turned away.If you serve Jesus merely to attain eternal life, then surely you serve him only for gain and your are merely serving a religion with their established rule...

Why did Jesus have to die for our sins? I can't comprehend this concept; it doesn't make sense.

What do Christians believe is meant by: Curse of the law?What is the curse? What law? How does one obtain this curse, how are they cursed, what is cursed to happen? Please cite chapter and verse if your views are supported by scripture. Thanks.
