sin and separation from God - what is sin exactly?

What Exactly Is Sin?

 

We look for light, but there is darkness!
For brightness, but we walk in blackness!
We grope for the wall like the blind,
And we grope as if we had no eyes;
We stumble at noonday as at twilight;
We are as dead men in desolate places.
We all growl like bears,
And moan sadly like doves;
We look for justice, but there is none;
For salvation, but it is far from us.
For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
And our sins testify against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know them:
In transgressing and lying against the Lord,
And departing from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.

– Isaiah 59

Sin is living apart from oneness and in disharmony with the nature and essence of God.

Sin is playing a cacophonous refrain over the maestro’s heartfelt symphony.

Sin is the spiritual disarray within us.

 

In essence, sin = spiritual entropy and systemic incongruity between us and God.

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23

Sin does not merely involve our actions, but is also our nature (one of perpetual discord with the Creator – the Source of all). It’s almost as if our very frequencies – our energy – were out of sync with his wavelengths and amplitude.

And that nature can only be transformed – that frequency realigned – by again becoming one with the essence of God, via the Logos (Jesus Christ).

There is hope. We are not stuck here. Or at least, we don’t have to be.

For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:

“This is the covenant I will make with them
    after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
    and I will write them on their minds.”

Then he adds:

“Their sins and lawless acts
    I will remember no more.”

– Hebrews 10


But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:8


I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. – Galatians 2:20


He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. – 2 Corinthians 5:21


For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23


and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. – 1 Peter 2:24


Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8:1
