    first created perfect, sinless. Sin slithered into the world when Eve ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Ever since then, we are born into a sinful world, with a sinful nature. How then do we live Christ-like lives, when we are born with a sinful name? So what is sin exactly?

    role of sin (or transgression) in three texts that we have discussed in the latter half of this semester. When reading The wife of Bath’s Prologue and Tale, The Pardoner’s Prologue and Tale and Hamlet I was able to see that sin was a very serious subject during that time, plays, stories and comedies were made explaining what a sin was and alerting people to be careful of committing a sin. Which make me remember how a long time ago during youth group we learned that the bible mentioned 667 sins, the

    before receiving salvation; one, lying to oneself that they are without sin when they are yet sinners. The second is the acknowledgment of their sins unto repentance and the third one is denying the fact that they have sinned when they know they have sinned. These are a declaration in which one may perceive their state.

    The Bible is often time misquoted when it comes to the issue of abortion. In fact the word of God makes it clear to us that abortion is not a sin, it's quite clear that to believe otherwise is nothing short of idolatry and blasphemy and those are definitely sins. One of the most beautiful chapters in the Bible is Psalms 139. "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; or I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works: and that my

  • Forgiveness and Sin

    1102 Words  | 5 Pages

    Forgiveness and Sin The overall theme of the Bible is simple to find, as it is on nearly every single page of it. It is that of man's sin and God's attempt to forgive him of that sin while still being absolutely holy and absolutely just. First, God gives man His Law. These are the same rules and regulations that many Jewish Orthodox follow to this very day. Next, in the supreme act of love, God sends His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for man's sins in a final act of forgiveness. Both of these acts
