    What is Your Definition of Sin?

    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).

    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-

    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 from a purely dictionary point of view is to fall short of the mark set by God. Thus all sin.

    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.
