Define Sin Meaning

The Greek biblical word for sin, "amartia", means literally "to miss the mark", like an archer. Sin is not necessarily defined by moral wrongness, by transgressing some set of rules, but is instead doing anything that takes our focus off God (the target), onto ourselves, thinking we are the be-all-and-end-all.

"Sin is nothing else than to neglect eternal things, and seek after temporal things" -- St. Augustine

Short for the word sine. It is a stupid and idiotic trigonometric function. Gives headaches to calculus students everywhere. Teachers try to give there students a stupid story about an indian, but they never really care, and when taught at seven in the morning, it could never really be understood.

It should be a sin to teach us about sin this early in the morning and expect us to remember it.

Misconduct. Wrong doing. Grave error. Often associated with, or the result of stupidity.

It should be a sin for people to be so blatantly ignorant that they lay blame on others for problems they've brought on themselves.

What seperates human beings from God. A flaw of the human race. The thing that seperates humans from animals. The root cause of ALL the problems in the world—death, disease, sickness, starvation, war, addictions, personal struggles, physical struggles, failed relationships, etc. The Bible says in Romans 5:12 that sin entered the world by Adam, the first of all human beings, and that death and corruption by separation from God spread to all of mankind as a result. This is called “original sin.” The affects of the Fall and sin are numerous and far reaching. Sin has affected every aspect our being and has affected the quality of our lives on earth and our eternal destiny. One of the immediate effects of the Fall of Adam and Eve is that mankind became separated from the perfect, eternal God. They became ashamed and fearful before Him and man has been hiding from God ever since. This is a fact because let’s face it, we are NOT born with the desire to obey God---we want to do our own thing in our own way. Because of the Fall, mankind and all creation including plants, animals, micororganism, etc inherited death. Romans 6:23 states that because of sin, death is an inevitible reality and no one is immune. Only through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross will everything be restored.

Another effect of the Fall is that humans have lost sight of the purpose for which they were created. Man’s chief end and highest purpose in life is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever (Romans 11:36; 1 Corinthians 6:20; 1 Corinthians 10:31; Psalm 86:9). Selfishness is the essence of the Fall, and what follows are all other crimes against God. In all ways sin is a turning in upon oneself, which is confirmed in how we live our lives. We call attention to ourselves and to our good qualities and accomplishments. We minimize our shortcomings. We seek special favors and opportunities in life, wanting an extra edge that no one else has. We display vigilance to our own wants and needs, while we ignore those of others. In short, we place ourselves upon the throne of our lives, usurping the role that belongs to God.

Adam and Eve really ruined things for us. Adam’s rebellion against God resulted in our lost innocense and a darkened mind for us. Without the supernatural regeneration by the Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross, all men would remain in the fallen state of sin and destined to an eternal hell separated from God forever. But thanks to His grace, mercy and loving-kindness, God sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross and take the penalty of our sin, reconciling us to God and making eternal life with Him possible. Only through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross will everything be restored. Jesus himself, at Judgement day, will cast sin, death, Satan and his followers into hell and put an end, once and for all, to this war.

If you are foolish enough to not believe that sin exists, then you are a moron. Just look at the world around you. Sin is the cause of everything bad you see on television, in the news, see in the newspaper and hear on the radio. Sin is a very REAL problem. Sin is the reason Christ had to go to the Cross.
