Sin - What is it ?

We all have our own definition of sin. We make sin fit into our own set of rules and define sin according to a standard of right and wrong that makes sense to us.

But, according to the Bible, sin is failing to live up to God's standard, not our standard. Romans 3:23 says that everyone has sinned and everyone falls short of the glory of God.

Looking through the Bible, I found these definitions of sin.

I've been told that sin is anything that does not look like God. It is anything that is not in God's will and anything that dishonors God. We are to be holy as God is holy. Does that sound impossible? That's why our God, who loves us, sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross in payment for our sins. We are forgiven and made holy because of His sacrifice. John 3:16-18
