What is Sin?

What does Christianity teach about Sin?

The Bible teaches that all sin is against God and that any sin is equal in its power to separate humans from God.

Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight

Psalm 51:4

Christianity teaches that humans sin in thought, word and deed. And that there are sins of commission, or sins we actively do, and sins of omission, things we fail to do that by that failure result in sin.

What does Mormonism teach about Sin?

Mormonism teaches that sin is against self. In Mormonism, mistakes, slip-ups, oversights, and indiscretions are not really sin, as sin requires forethought, intent and deliberate action.

Sin is knowingly choosing to do wrong or not to do right.

Plan of Salvation, p.9
