What is your definition of sin? I believe there are two major types of sin Common sin, which is an act that is either malicious, destructive, or nonprogressive in intent whose consequences usually have ill effects for an outside party, such as lying, stealing, or murdering. And Self sin, which is an act that is usually progressive that is against the nature of the person perfoming it, such as a police man arresting an individual not because they believe what that individual is doing is wrong but for the sake of their job. I believe the sin lies more in the intent than it does in the act itself. I know my definition leaves a lot of gray area and many specific circumstances up for discussion, but sin is a hard topic and I am only human.
