Why do we sin?

Why do we wage war, exploit, and destroy the very environment that sustains us and most importantly, we destroy each other? Why do we suffer? This is the question that we all as human beings have been trying to solve for millenniums. This includes John Lennon’s “Imagine.” If God have us free will, I can understand why sadly more of us human beings chose to lean towards Satan them we do towards God and Jesus, unfortunately. That is because we as humans since the first Neanderthal have to eat to survive. Then, if God gives us “Free Will,” and if we have to be Satanic and Demonic to survive, and if we have to fight to survive, then, why do we choose to harm each other, and why do we choose commit more Satanist acts then we choose to commit love? Also, why in the 21st Century Do more politicians chose to make millions of their citizens starve with their own greed today in the 21st Century rather than to give, and to do onto others? Why do we have selfish reasons? Why do we sin? Why can’t we all find our path back to God? Why can’t we all have one fact true belief over different opinions which are tempted by Satan? Why can’t we all Love each other as no Countries?

    * Sin is literally “a missing of the mark”. 

    But who sets the “mark”?  Almighty God sets the  mark that his intelligent creatures are to reach. Missing that mark is sin, which is also unrighteousness, or lawlessness. ( Romans 3:23; 1John 5:17; 3:4)

    * Sin is anything not in harmony with God’s personality, standards, ways, and will, all which are holy. It may involve wrong conduct, failure to do what should be done, ungodly speech, unclean thoughts, or desires or motives that are selfish. 

    * Did you know that the Bible differentiates between inherited sin and willful sin, between an act of sin over which a person is repentant and the practice of sin.

    *** The reason we Sin is....

    Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate the fruit.  (Genesis 2:17; 3:6) 

    They sinned against Jehovah, and in time they died, just as Jehovah had said they would. (Genesis 3:17-19) 

    Adam and Eve’s children ere sinners, so they died. ( Romans 5:12 ) 

    ** To help us understand why Adam and Eve’s children were also sinners, consider this example. Imagine baking a loaf of bread in a pan that has a dent. The bread will have the same dent as the pan. When Adam disobeyed God, Adam became a sinner. Because we are Adam’s children, all of us are sinners, or have the same “dent” as he did.  And because we are all sinners, we grow old and die. (Romans 3:23)

    * The fact that many people do not believe it is necessary to live according to Bible standards does not put an end to sin. (1John 1:8)

    * Some people may choose to do what God’s Word forbids. But that does not prove the Bible wrong. Galatians 6:7,8 warns: “Do not be misled: God is not one to be mocked. For whatever a man (or woman) is sowing, this he will also reap; because he who is sowing with a view to his flesh will reap corruption from his flesh.” 

    The epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases, broken homes, and so forth gives evidence of the truthfulness of what the Bible says.

    * Does it not make sense to listen to our Creator? He knows what will bring us lasting happiness.🙂

    * Please  be sure to look up the cited scriptures in your Bible as God’s word is the Ultimate authority to answer our questions and learn what God’s will is.

    Pastors, priests, and religious teachers often say that it is God's will that people suffer. Some may say that everything happens to a person, including tragedies, has already been decided by God and that we can never understand way or may even say people, including little children, die so that they can be with God in heaven. But that is not true. Jehovah never causes bad things to happen. (Psalms 83:18) The Bible says, "It is unthinkable for the true God to act wickedly, for the Almighty to do do wrong!" Job 34:10

    Many people blame God for all the suffering in the world because they think that God rules the world. The Bible tells us that "the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." (John 5:19) The ruler of this world, Satan, is vicious and cruel. He is " misleading the entire inhabited earth". (Revelation 12:9.) That is is just one reason why the world is so full of lies, hatred, and cruelty. There are other reasons why there is so much suffering in the world. After Adam and Eve rebelled, they passed sin on to their children and because of sin,  and because of sin, humans cause other humans to suffer. (Romans 5:12)They fight, they go to war, and they bully others. (Ecclesiastes 4:1; 8:9)

    Sometimes people suffer because of "time and unexpected events". (Ecclesiastes 9:11) At the wrong place, time, accidents and other bad things can happen to them.

    If you would like to learn more, the Bible can change your life. It can help you to understand.

    2 Timothy 3:16 - Isaiah 48:17 - Hebrew 4:12

    It can help you understand God's purpose.

    A nature is that which is natural to do be it good or bad. Sin means to 'miss the mark.' As God is perfect, sin is falling short of that standard. In fact, it's very easy to sin. It's one slip of a step away from your conscience.

    God is to be worshipped. God created everything in "Being" with the natural disposition to worship him. God has two aspects of Himself, His Mercy and His Anger. God wrote in the Book of Decrees which is with Him on His Throne, "My Mercy overcomes My Anger." Order in life is God's Mercy. Chaos in life is God's Anger. People who sin are indulging in what brings God's Anger. But when they repent and do good, they get God's Mercy. That's life.

    We feel like it, of course, just as we do good because we feel like doing it, for whatever level of motivation works with us.

    The earliest humans lived in small tribes, similar to the way chimps live now..as the tribes grew and migrated, they competed for resources..and the more aggressive tribe slaughtered all the peace loving ones..so nature favoured war and aggression for survival..it's in our DNA

    Christians were told they are born sinners.

    This makes them go to church and donate money!

    How else would the clergy survive?

    Different religious have different ways to sin. 

    Catholics sin by eating meat on Friday.

    Hindus sin by eating meat any day of the week.

    Heresy leads to loss of love; Orthodoxy is the only true faith; if everyone were Orthodox Christian, it would be much easier to live for all of us; forgive me.
