We All Sin

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1 John 1:8 (NKJV)

Some people define sin as a negative attitude toward God, others see it as disobedience to God's word. Others define sin as any socially rejected physical act that a Christian commits. They limit sin to Christians only. Thus, all other thoughts and attitudes, even those rejected by society, which cannot be described physically, are not considered sinful.

The Bible does not limit sin to physical actions, that is, something that can be seen and explained. Nor does it define sin according to men's decision. When we sin, we do it against God, because He alone decides what is right or wrong, whether in thought or action. When the Bible refers to God's forgiveness, it is not specifying a specific sin, but anything we do that displeases God. A evil attitude is a sin, a evil thought is a sin, a evil action is a sin, as long as the Bible describes them that way.

Don't think that you haven't sinned because you haven't done anything evil to someone or didn't think about doing it. Just believing in it is already a sin. Jesus himself tells us: “there is none good but one, that is, God." -KJV. Instead of making a list of what you have done to determine whether you have sinned or not, see yourself a sinner who deserves God's wrath, then consider His grace as unmerited favor.

May the grace and the peace of God be with you all.
