The word “sin” is considered to be the old form of the word “since”. A sin is an ethically wrong and unscrupulous act. A sin marks transgression or violation of the law of God or the divine power. Seven sins have been mentioned in the Bible also known as the Capital vices or the Cardinal sins. The seven deadly sins are wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony. In the words of Billy Sunday, “A revival does two things. First, it returns the Church from her backsliding and second, it causes the conversion of men and women; and it always includes the conviction of sin on the part of the Church. What a spell the devil seems to cast over the Church today!”
Sins are performed by people who have some kind of moral deficiency in their character and perform sins of omission and commission. A wicked person is deemed to be an embodiment of sin. Sins are morally wrong acts which one should strictly not indulge in.
