What is Sin?

1 John 3:4 KJV, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”

Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy, vol 4, 1884, p.316, “Our only definition of sin is that given in the word of God; ‘it is the transgression of the law.’ Sin originated with him, who, next to Christ, stood highest in the favor of God, and highest in power and glory among the inhabitants of Heaven.”

Sin originated from Lucifer. The teaching of original sin by Augustine is inspired by the great rebel. The master spiritualist who induced humanity to sin.

Is sin a choice? Yes, it is a choice. There was no cause for Lucifer to sin in heaven. He willfully and deliberately had chosen to transgress or violate the law of God.

Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy, vol 4, 1884, p. 29, “The children were not condemned for the sins of the parents; but when, with a knowledge of all the light given to their parents, the children rejected the additional light granted to themselves, they became partakers of the parents’ sins, and filled up the measure of their iniquity.”

Romans 6:23 KJV, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

God is love and no sin can be and will be allowed in His presence. His character is love thus, He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. We know these things and we are invited today to know Him more each day (John 17:3).

Lord, I have sinned against Thee, forgive me and cleanse me. Help me walk with Thee and by your Spirit set me free!

Sincerely in the Blessed Hope.
