What is Sin?

John 3:18 “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

“The world doesn’t really know what sin is. They think that sin is lying, stealing, murder adultery or arson. No, those are sins, plural

Do you know what sin is? Sin is the rejection of Jesus Christ that will damn you soul to hell. You don’t go to hell because you steal, lie or kill. I hear people say, ‘Sure, I lie every now and again, but God isn’t going to send me to hell for that. I might fry a few years in purgatory, but to die in hell for lying doesn’t make sense’.

When a man talks that way, he doesn’t understand sin. Sin is high treason against a holy God. Sin is a clenched fist in the face of God. Sin says to God, ‘I will not bow to You. I will not serve You. I will not trust You.’ That is sin.

The great commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind. The great sin is not to.

Have you realized that without Christ, you are destined for hell? Do you agree with the Word of God:

Psalm 16:2 “O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;”

Isaiah 43:11 “I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.”

If not, I encourage you to repent and believe on Him today. Surrender your life in exchange for His.” – taken from “Daybreak – Practicing the Presence of God” by Adrian Rogers
