Sin is Not Just About Our Thoughts, Actions or Failing to Meet Some Standard

Sin is therefore not just our wicked thoughts and actions that break God’s laws; it is not just failing to meet up to God’s expectations for us; it is a posture and a commitment to turn away from the living God to run after other things and bow in worship to them.  God hates sin and told Adam that the consequences of sin would be death (Genesis 2:17)
