    I was interested in seeing what the twenty-first century views as being sin. I'd appreciate you taking the poll, and if a choice does not completely reflect your view, feel free to expound in the comment section.

    theirs our personel sins that we commit.

    And the BIG SIN was the one that the first Adam committed ---that made ALL men sinners because of his 1 SIN.

    According to YAH's word SIN is the transgression of the Law of YAH--but some believe here that they are not to observe his commandments any longer00so I reckon they are continually in SIN or they don't SIN at all .

    You have listed lots of thing scripture calls sin...so I predict your answers will be fairly uniform here. It's really a poll asking us if we believe the Bible or not, right?

    For the believer, everything that doesn't conform to 37 & 39 is a sin.

    Matthew 22: KJB

    35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
    36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
    37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
    38 This is the first and great commandment.
    39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    The Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding and applying these two commandments, as further explained/defined in His Holy Word.

    He that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin. All unrighteousness is sin. What is not of faith is sin.

    A sin is anything that falls short of the perfection of God.

    Thus, a good thing that is not the BEST thing is a sin.

    Thus, the list at the beginning is a list that is much too short.

    Seven Greek words in the New Testament that must be translated as SIN:

    1. "Hamartia" = "To miss the mark", as in archery competition, and therefore fail to receive the prize, or blessing. This is the general Greek word for sin, and is used 221 times. "Hamartia" encompasses the other 6 words for specific sins, in the sense that in all types of sin, we are "missing the mark". Example: Heb. 12:1, KJV = "the sin (hamartia) which doeth so easily beset us". We are aiming at God's best, but miss it.

    2. "Hettema" = "Diminishing what should have been given full measure". Example: 1 Cor. 6:7, KJV = "there is a fault (hettema) among you". We all need God's constant help on this one! Placing emphasis on the things that please God will bring God's wonderful blessings into our life.

    3. "Paraptoma" = "Falling when one should have stood". This one is actually an unintentional slip. I guess you've experienced this, as I have, and we are surprised when we realize we've sinned. Example: Eph. 1:7, KJV = We have "the forgiveness of sins (paraptoma), according to the riches of His grace". Even our "slip-ups" are forgiven.

    4. "Agnoeema" = "Ignorance when one should have known". Example: Heb. 9:7, KJV = "the errors (agnoeema) of the people". This passage speaks of how the Old Testament was a shadow of the New Testament. Ignorance is no excuse, that's why we stay in the Word!

    5. "Parakoe" = "To refuse to hear and heed God's word". Example: 2 Cor. 10:6, KJV = "disobedience". In this passage, Paul urges us to hear God's Word and to bring every thought into captivity for Christ.

    6. "Parabasis" = "To intentionally cross a line". Example: Heb. 2:2, KJV = "every transgression (parabasis) & disobedience (parakoe) received a just recompense of reward". When God "draws a line in the sand", we can suffer great loss of rewards and blessings by intentionally "stepping over".

    7. "Anomia" and "Paranomia" = "Lawlessness, or willfully breaking God's written rules". Example: Titus 2:14 KJV = Jesus gave himself for us in order to "redeem us from all iniquity (anomia)". God has "rules" to bless us, not to curse us. Someone said "the Bible is the owner's manual for human beings". Can you imagine trying to operate something as complicated as a human life without referring to the owner's manual? That would be just asking for frustration and failure!

    Paul said plainly in the NT

    SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW OF YAH

    why don't we just label it like YAH's Apostle did and let them all fall under transgressing the law of YAH--

    we try to list all sorts of things--BUT the scripture says THE LAW OF YAH IS TRANGRESSED

    IF it is NOT the transgression of YAH's LAW---it is NOT SIN.

    that's plain truth and bible teaching.

    try psalm 68-4 friend JAH-YAH is one in the same

    there was NO letter J in Hebrew--so JAH is YAH

    his name is YAH

    the pagans took this name out of our bibles over 6k times and replace it with title Lord and God---BUT YAH blinded them to psalm 68-4 so that wicked men would leave his real name in the text 1 time

    wow they took his name out 6k times and missed 1 text---YAH is his name !!!

    So, the English Bible, any version, is wrong (produced by evil men) everywhere a J or j has been used. Is that in essence, what you are saying?

    Starting in Genesis, for example:
    Jabal, Jubal, Jared, Japheth, just, Javan, journeyed, Jordan, joined, judge, Jebusites, justice and judgment, Jehovahjireh, Jacob ---- that's enough.... KJB - Keyword search results for J yielded 6046 Results
    http://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=J&qs_version=KJV

    What is your preferred version of the Bible? Is it written in English? Does the letter J/j appear anywhere in the OT? Did "wicked men" produce the Bible version that you prefer?

    Psalm 68:4 KJB
    Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.

    NIV
    4 Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the LORD.
    NIV Keyword search results for J 6691 Results
    http://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=J&qs_version=NIV

    Thought I'd add this reference, as well. Someone more versed in the OJB may want to comment.

    Tehillim 68- Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
    4 (5) Sing unto Elohim, sing praises to Shmo; extol Him that rideth on the clouds by Shmo Hashem, and rejoice before Him.

    Actually, it's Yahweh, and the truth is that we can call Him the father, jesus, Holy spirit, Messiah, saviour, Lord, God etc...

    Are you saying that we cannot call him any other name, and that versions that do are 'satanic" or something?

    List from Scripture

    Galatians 5:19-21, and divided into groups by similarities in sin.

    I am saying that the Hebrew language that psalm 68-4 was written in did not contain a letter J--so it was an Y so Jah would originally be YAH.

    you must take in consideration that we have our translation that we have today through 4 language translations--and all 4 languages didn't have the same sounding and meaning in them--that only causes problems in some of the translations from the ORIGINAL texts that were INSPIRED.

    Yah is a shortened form of the name---if you consider that YAH is the name provided in Psalm 68-4---if you say YAH is the wrong translation--then you admit that what we have today contains translations errors in it !!!

    I will admit that we do have translations errors in our bibles today--BUT YAH is the correct short form of the Father's name.

    First there is no translational error in the NT, as it is written in Greek. There is no YAW found in Greek nor is the name Yahshua found in Greek. You are wrong.

    Second, this thread is about sin. You have sinned in derailing this thread.
