define sin

3 July 2008

Below are a few definitions of sin I could think of:

– Breaking God’s rules
– Falling short of God’s holiness
– To not love the Lord with all your heart, soul, strength, mind
– Being your own God
– Basing your identity on anything but God
– Turning a good thing into an ultimate thing

– Committing a crime
– Oppressing another person
– Anything that leaves a guilty conscience
– Upsetting the common good

Are there more?
Does any one define them all?
