What is the meaning of sin?
Why do we sin?
Is it in our nature to sin?
Since we are born sinners
That's a tough one I don't have the answers for
But I know someone 
who does
He helps the drunks 
The hoes
The pimps 
The sick and 
All you have to do 
Is call on him
And he will answer you 
In your time of need 
But even then we still sin 
Whether it is an act
Or thought we still sin
Some give into their temptations
While other succumb
To Greed
Which are the worst sins
The 7 deadly sins
So this brings me back 
To my original question
What is the meaning of sin?
Now let me ask you another question
Are we destined for hell
For the sins of our forefathers?
That's a tough one 
One I don't have the answer for 
But God does and only through
Him can we truly be 
Free of sin.

    The Bible tells us that we are only guilty of our own sins. Also, man is suppose to overcome his sins, and it is really not so hard at all, as the closer one comes to God, the sins are burned, or melted away, so that no desire for sin remains. hugs, Catie :) and BTW ~ the last enemy to overcome is Death, whose author is Satan.
