What is sin?

Answer

"Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." 1 John 3: 4.
NOTE - This text does not say that sin was the transgression of the law, but that it is this, thus
demonstrating that the law is still in force in the gospel dispensation. "Whosoever" likewise shows the
universality of its binding claims. Whoever of any nation, race, or people commits sin, transgresses the
law.
