Sin, Definition of

Romans 7:7-13      WHAT SHALL WE SAY THEN? IS THE LAW SIN? MAY IT NEVER BE! ON THE CONTRARY, I WOULD NOT HAVE COME TO KNOW SIN EXCEPT THROUGH THE LAW; FOR I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN ABOUT COVETING IF THE LAW HAD NOT SAID, "YOU SHALL NOT COVET."
    BUT SIN, TAKING OPPORTUNITY THROUGH THE COMMANDMENT, PRODUCED IN ME COVETING OF EVERY KIND; FOR APART FROM THE LAW SIN is DEAD.
    I WAS ONCE ALIVE APART FROM THE LAW; BUT WHEN THE COMMANDMENT CAME, SIN BECAME ALIVE AND I DIED;
    AND THIS COMMANDMENT, WHICH WAS TO RESULT IN LIFE, PROVED TO RESULT IN DEATH FOR ME;
    FOR SIN, TAKING AN OPPORTUNITY THROUGH THE COMMANDMENT, DECEIVED ME AND THROUGH IT KILLED ME.
    SO THEN, THE LAW IS HOLY, AND THE COMMANDMENT IS HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS AND GOOD!
    THEREFORE DID THAT WHICH IS GOOD BECOME a cause of DEATH FOR ME? MAY IT NEVER BE! RATHER IT WAS SIN, IN ORDER THAT IT MIGHT BE SHOWN TO BE SIN BY EFFECTING MY DEATH THROUGH THAT WHICH IS GOOD, SO THAT THROUGH THE COMMANDMENT SIN WOULD BECOME UTTERLY SINFUL.

1 Corinthians 15:56      THE STING OF DEATH IS SIN, AND THE POWER OF SIN IS THE LAW;

1 John 3:4      EVERYONE WHO COMMITS SIN ALSO COMMITS TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW; BECAUSE SIN IS TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW.
