The Bible is Very Clear on the Subject of Sin

Repentence is the only remedy for sin
What is "Sin" according to the Bible?

According to the New Testament Book of 1John 3:4;

"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." KJV

Now this direct statement is saying (two times) that to break, transgress, oppose, disregard, work against, commit action or violation of any kind against the "law" (Torah, law of Moses... first five books of the Hebrew Bible) is sin. Sin has one and only one end result; and that is separation from God (YHWH)... and without one's change of their ways by repenting and asking forgiveness and having Yeshua's (Jesus') blood cleanse their sin, sin will end in that one being cast into "the lake of fire," in the final judgment (Rev 20:15 and 21:8).  

The ONLY remedy (correction or cure) for sin is confession of your sin, asking forgiveness, with true and genuine repentance and turning away from (forever forsaking) the sin at issue, asking Yeshua to become "master" of your life, and taking up one's place as an "obedient" child of YHWH. Thankfully, 1John 1:9 assures the repentant sinner:  

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." KJV  

Now what are some of the "sins" identified in the Bible?  

First, any rebellion or disobedience to the "Written Word of God (YHWH)" is sin... therefore, one must study the Bible (from the beginning) to know what is and what is not sin... there is no excuse for a person, claiming to be a part of the Biblical Israel of YHWH/God, NOT to know what sin is, as Paul says in Romans 1:18-20. Paul continues in Romans 1:21-32 to explain the sin problem.  

Breaking of the Ten Commandments and their expanded meaning (principals of living) is also sin.  

Here are some of the "itemized sins" of the Bible: Professing themselves to be wise (smarter than the Word of God/Torah), looking to corruptible things (mankind, birds, four-footed beast, creeping things, etc. as "worshiped" things, in place of a holy incorruptible GOD/YHWH);  

Lust in their own hearts, dishonoring their own bodies between themselves (changing YHWH's truth into a lie, worshiping and serving the creature more than the Creator/YHWH), which has manifesting results in secular humanism... and "green earth" (mother earth) worship (this is not the same as good stewardship of our planet, for which God clearly expects us to respect and keep as best we know how).

For these things, YHWH "gave them up" to vile affections (perverted sexual practices, i.e., homosexuality, bestiality, and all "unnatural" forms of human relationships, resulting in perversion).  

Because they did not like to retain YHWH/GOD in their "knowledge," YHWH gave them up to a "reprobate mind," to do those things not convenient (fitting). Such as, being filled with all unrighteousness (opposite to Torah definition of holy and righteous), fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity (bad character- mischievousness), whisperers, backbiters, haters of YHWH/GOD, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable (unmovable, unappeasable, unrelenting, adamant), unmerciful.  

What does Paul the Apostle tell the Ephesians about those who will NOT enter the Kingdom of Christ and of God?  

Eph 5:3-5

3 "But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God."KJV  

What does Paul warn the Galatians about sin?  

Gal 5:19-21

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. KJV  

Now, for some of the "lesser" known sins... sins just the same:  

Breaking the "Sabbath," the 4th of the ten commandments... common practice of exchanging the eternal 7th day (Saturday on modern Calendars) for "Sun" day... a Roman pagan day of worship... likewise, celebrating pagan holidays, such as Easter and Christmas and "Christianizing" them with our own description of why we justify them... Especially, substituting of them, for example: Passover is commanded, and Easter is the normal practice.  

Turning away our "ear- hearing" from the instruction of the Torah (Prov 28:9)... resulting with one's prayers becoming an "abomination" to YHWH/GOD... serious, I think.

To falsify, in any way, the person (identity or personhood) of Yeshua (the real Jesus of the Bible)... who was/is the "Word that became flesh," (John 1:1-14, the walking, living Word of God/Torah). To propose Him in any way that defiles his purity incarnation of the Torah in the flesh, which Torah He kept and taught (Mat 5:17-19).  

To reject the Savior/Yeshua, for redemption... or His Blood's efficaciousness for your sins; as to blaspheme the Holy Spirit of Grace... as to trample His Blood underfoot (Heb 10:26-29).  

Careless rebuke of YHWH'S love, and not loving Him or others... and disregarding the command to be "holy;" without holiness, no man shall see YHWH/GOD (Heb 12:14).  

To mistake "love" for emotion and feelings, and not practice it (YHWH'S definition of love John 14:15 and 14:23) as obedience to Torah (proper love for YHWH, Deut 6:5, 11:1, 11:13, 11:22, 13:3, 19:9, 30:6, 30:16, 30:20, Jos 22:5) and Torah's teaching how to love others (Mat 22:37-40). Be sure to understand "loving" is "doing," and doing it YHWH'S way. To do it our "own way," is sin.  

Failing to look after the needs of others... widows, orphans, the helpless; gossip and slander; tolerance for evil, such as abortion and lewdness openly practiced in our society... tattoos on one's body (Leviticus 19:28- a Torah fact). Acceptance of false teachings (which YHWH says He will send as a "test" to see if we will follow false prophets; Deut 13:3).  

Syncretism (mixing Torah/YHWH's commandments with other man-made or institutional religious practices)... very common in modern religious practice. Inclusion of all types of New Age "mysticism" (namely Eastern-Hindu religious practices) in with "church" activities... very common in our day... the "Purpose Driven" and "Post Modern, Emerging Church" paradigms... all falling under YHWH'S warning in Isaiah 8:20 (any teaching against the Torah/law of Moses)... all these are the move towards the "one world religion," of the last days... preaching peace and unity... at all cost, and mingling all religions; which is an "abomination" to YHWH... the "Babylon of the end times."  

The Bible has one main instruction concerning these "mixed" abominations:  

"Come out." (2Cor 6:14-18 and Rev 18:4)...

And for one final note: What is probably the greatest sin? It would seem that the greatest sin would be the first sin... that is the sin that resulted in Satan (once known as the "great worshiping angel") getting himself cast down from his lofty position...

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. [Isa 14:12-15 KJV]

Namely, it was his self-centered, prideful lust for YHWH'S throne. So, if we follow his ways, and place our intetest and desires in things that blow up our own ego and self-esteem, we must remember Yeshua's words, "the first shall be last and the last shall be first." Self-indulgence, lust for power, greed and disregard for others, and pursuit of pleasure and unclean lifestyles will lead to our sure destruction. The Bible teaches us:

16 [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. [Gal 5:16 KJV]

16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. [1Jo 2:16 KJV]  

To choose to stay in what the Bible calls sin, is to assign one's destiny to the certain consequence for the "wages of sin," which is "death" (Rom 6:23)... think about it.

This is world we now live in; and it is descending further into ungodly corruption and sins of all types as defined in the bible... This is why, at the end of the age, that YHWH will send Holy angels to "one last time" preach the "Everlasting Gospel," which is the theme of this website,
