WHAT IS SIN? JAMES 4:17 (NIV)
17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
1 John 3:4King James Version (KJV)
4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
(God is holy and perfect; people are sinful. You probably know that for yourself….If you tried to be perfect for a day you would quickly discover you couldn’t do it. SIN means not understanding or even caring about what is “right” You defy God when you know what is right then refuse to do it. WHO HAS SINNED? Romans 3:23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 5:17 For the SIN of this one man, Adam , caused death to rule over many.
