What is sin all about? Typically, we think of sin in terms of doing bad things. But the apostle John says, "When he [the Holy Spirit] comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: about sin, because people do not believe in me" (John 16:8, 9).
With sin, the primary issue is not trusting Jesus, not believing Him. Don't buy into the misunderstanding that sin is bad behavior; at the heart of sin is a broken relationship. Morrie Venden suggests that Eve sinned before she ate the apple. Eating the apple was the result of her sin. First, she distrusted God. She embraced a convoluted notion about His character. And you know the rest of the story.
