Is it just me or is their a lot of confusion over what sin actually is? Sin is not breaking my or your moral code. Sin is not breaking the traditions of men. The bible is very specific about what sin is.
1 John 3:4
Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
Why is there so much confusion over what is sin? Is it because so many say we are not obligated to obey any of the law ? Is it a lack of understanding about the Crucifixion and it's affect on us and the NT/ OT?
It just seems that every time I turn on the TV, read a post from a thread or a blog, somebody is coming up with a new meaning of what sin is. I heard or read some where recently that if the NT didn't say it was a sin, then it wasn't a sin. (There is a lot that is sin that the NT don't cover, like Rape for instance). Where did the thought come from that if something offends somebody then it's sin for everyone? Or That everyone can decide for themselves what sin is ( most would call this personal revelation).
Just curious if it is just me or if anyone else sees it. It's almost like we the church need to go back to basics and start with the simple things again, like What is sin?
What is sin?
Sin is the transgression of the law
Why is the above so hard to understand?
Comments and elaborations welcome.
