How would you define "sin"?
We all talk about "sinning" and "sinners". What does it mean to sin? How do you know if you have sinned or are sinning?
Rally good question! This is a term we use a lot but I personally don't think about exactly what it means. So let me see.....sin is transgression, or breaking God's law.
There are "ten commandments," but there is no one who can live without breaking at least one of them.
The ten commandments are meant to "convict" us of our sin, meaning, make us aware - make us aware that we need to be saved from the penalty for sin. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
To put it simply, sinning is disobeying God's commands. Every single one of us sin every day in some form or fashion, and no one is immune to it.
I have sinned many times without knowing it, only to find out much later that I had sinned. I had NO idea at one point that gluttony is a sin. (For those who don't know what that is, it is basically overeating.)
Sinning is a human flaw. We will not be rid of it until we die.
the way a person does whatever they like while going in the wrong way eg going away from God & not trusting the moving of His Holy Spirit.
Sin is simply emphasizing "I" in the middle of it. When one is too focused on one's selfishness then eventually that person could sin. We could also define sin as the separation of oneself with God. It's like a string that once it's cut (due to sin), the connection is also cut. We disconnect ourselves from our source of goodness, who is GOD.
I see sin as falling short of the expectations that God has in me.

Can you go a day without sinning?Sin takes on many forms. Many people think they are good people, and they are. But, are they sinless? Is it possible, if you really try, to go a whole day without sinning?

What would have happened to man if Eve did not commit that sin in the Bible?One thing that I have been thinking about is Gen. 2:25 and Gen. 3:5, concerning Adam & Eve. These first people created were not ashamed of their nakedness until they committed that sin. In other words, it was after...
