What is Sin?

Most of us don't think about sin because there doesn't seem to be any consequences to sinning. If we do think about sin or sinning, it’s more like breaking a “law,” which is OK as long as we can get away with it.

The Bible basically defines sin as anything outside the will of God. That means anything we think, say or do that breaks God's laws and makes him sad. Unless we know the will of God as Jesus, the Son of God, we all do things that are not in His will (1 John 1:8); or we do not do things that are in His will for us. Both are sins in the eyes of God, and make no mistake, God knows everything we do. So, it’s important to know what sin is because the Bible tells us that the penalty of sin is death (Romans 6:23). The death the Bible refers to is the eternal separation from God in Hell.
