BIBLE DEFINITIONS OF SIN

The following are King James Bible definitions of SINS, just believe what the verse SAYS!

1. All unrighteousness
   1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin:
If you ever did anything that wasn't right, you sinned right then!

2. ALL lawlessness
   1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
If you ever did anything that was contrary to the 10 commandments, you sinned right then!

3. Whatsoever is not of faith
   Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
If you ever did anything that wasn't by faith, you sinned right then!

4. A thought of foolishness
   Prov 24:9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
If you have ever had a foolish thought, you sinned right then!

5. A high look, a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked
   Prov 21:4 An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.
If you had a "high look" (This is like raising your head and eyes up as though you were better than someone) or ever thought you were proud of yourself, you sinned right then! The regular work of a lost man plowing is sin.

6. Failing to do good
   James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
It is a sin for you to know you should do something good for someone and don't do it!

7. Unbelief
   John 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
If you are not saved, you are already a sinner!

8. Respect of persons
   James 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
If you respect someone better than someone else, you sinned right then!

9. Hasteth with your feet
   Prov 19:2 Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
If you are always rushing to do something, you sinned right then!

10. Despising your neighbor
    Prov 14:21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth:
If you despise your neighbor, you're a sinner!

11. Talking too much
    Prov 10:19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
The more you talk the more you are prone to sin!

12. Heresy
    Titus 3:10,11 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Anything you teach that is heresy is SIN.

13. Provoking someone to anger
    Prov 20:2 The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.
The king here has to be Jesus Christ and the way to provoke him to anger is to reject His atonement for your soul!

14. Bad testimony
    1 Cor 8:12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
Anything you do that is a bad testimony that could cause another Christian to stumble is a sin.

After reading all these bible definitions of sin, do you really think you can live above sin? You are a LIAR if you say yes! Romans 10:3   For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

One more thing, you can't live good enough to go to heaven. You had better do like the bible says: 2 Cor 5:20b,21 ... we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;  that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
