Would such sin still exist today? “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 King James Version). It is important to keep in mind that no human

    There are seven infamous sins that a person can commit. These sins include lust, gluttony, sloth, wrath, envy, greed, and pride. A sin is an immoral act committed against God. However, God’s mercy is indefinite. God can forgive any of these sins as long as that person seeks and accepts God’s forgiveness.

    Bible Study of James So many go through the same sin cycles; simple, repeating the same sin they struggle with. Why do we continually repeat the same sin? God explains the reasons through His word. By noticing each step we can know how to properly refrain from making the same mistake over and over again. Through His word, He explains each step and the result of sin. First we must understand that God tempts no man. James 1: 13 says, "Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God

    Christian theologians have tried to figure out the best way to interpret why people sin and how they should repent ever since the bible was written.

In addition to the sin as a sickness or crime theories, some religious scholars say each theory should be used but both are

As William Shakespeare once said, “Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall.” Hawthorne shows the meaning of this quote through each character's reaction towards sin.

    Hester was punished for her sin, she had to wear the letter A on her chest. The A on her chest stood for Adultery, Hester had to stand in front of the town’s people where she was constantly judged by them. James 4:12 reads “There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you--who are you to judge your neighbor”? The bible also states that whoever is without sin throw the first stone meaning that everyone sins. If the world had to wear their sin, people would be judgmental
