WHAT IS SIN? - By John Baker


   WHAT IS SIN?

There are several Greek words used in the Bible to  describe some aspect of sin. Following are some examples:

1. Hamartano - to sin, err, miss the mark, to miss or wander  from the right path; to go or do wrong. Acts 25:8 (offended),  Romans 2:12; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12,14, 16; Romans   ; I Corinthians 7:18, 36; I Corinthians 8:12; I Corinthians  15:34; Ephesians 4:26; I Timothy 5:20; Titus 3:11; Hebrews  3:17; Hebrews 10:26; I Peter 2:20 (faults); II Peter 2:4; I John  1:10; I John 2:1; I John 3:6, 8, 9.

2. Hamartema - a sin, sinful act or deed, transgression.  Romans 3:25; I Corinthians 6:18.

3. Hamartia - a failing to hit the mark, sin, error, sin  offering. Acts 13:38; Romans 3:9, 20; Romans 4:7, 8; Romans  5:12, 13,20,21; Romans 14:23, II Corinthians 5:21; Galatians  ; Galatians 2:17; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1; Colossians  1:14; Colossians 2:11; II Thessalonians 2:3; I Timothy 5:2224;  I Peter 2:22, 24.

4. Paraptoma - a falling aside, offense, trespass. Romans  4:25; Romans 5:15, 16, 17, 18, 20; Romans 11:11, 12; II  Corinthians 5:19, Galatians 6:1.

5. Parabasis - a going over, transgressing. Romans 2:23  (breaking); Romans 4:15; Galatians 3:19; I Timothy 2:14;  Hebrews 9:15.

The essence of sin is "my way, not God's way."  Anything that is imperfect before God is sin.
