The definition of sin as I have learned it is anything that derails or is contrary to the principles of God. God’s principles are perfect without fault. Sin is dastardly, yet simply nothing more than the act against those principles that causes negative reactions.

The most basic way to understand sin is that it is any thought, attitude or action contrary to God’s will and his perfect character of love. It includes the breaking of any of his commandments (1John 3:4, Romans 7:12 – 13, James 2:10 – 11, etc.), whether in “the letter” (their narrow interpretation based on what is written) or in their spiritual intent.

The principles of God are immutable. They cannot change or it would violate the highest order of an unchanging Father. He does not change. Remember that. We as men however do change. We were born into the sin of the first Adam. That is why we must be born again.

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
