WHAT IS A SIN?

The following doesn’t describe my personal beliefs. While looking for information to go with the graphic above, I found a site that describes sin as quoted below. If being gay is a sin and should meet with punishment, it follows to this reasoning, that all other offenses should meet a similar fate, I would say.

For such a small word, a lot is packed into the meaning of sin. The Bible describes sin as the breaking, or transgression, of God’s law. It is also defined as disobedience or rebellion against God, as well as independence from God. The original translation means “to miss the mark” of God’s holy standard of righteousness.

While the basic origin of sin is unclear, it’s known that it came into the world when the serpent, Satan, tempted Adam and Eve and they disobeyed God. The essence of the problem stemmed from the human desire to be like God. All sin, therefore, has its roots in idolatry — the attempt to put something or someone in the place of the Creator.

Most often, that someone is one’s own self. While God allows sin, he is not the author of sin. All sins are an offense to God and they separate us from him

  1. These far right folks who call themselves Christian act like they are part of a cult because there is no reasoning with them. It is almost mission impossible to reach someone when they are full of hate, bitterness, anger, prejudice and bigotry. They don’t act like they are representing God’s love by welcoming those who are lost and who need comforting. They look like they represent a church by which you have to pass their litmus test which means you have to be republican. I wonder if they think that democrats pray to a different God.
