(or How to Speak “Christianese”)

Sin -  There are two Greek words that are used to convey the concept of sin. The first word (hamartia) means to “miss the mark.” That is, to fail to live up to, or comply with, the standard God has set for human behavior and thought. The second word, not as common but still helpful to our understanding, is trespass (paraptoma). To trespass is to “cross the line” or “misstep.” This implies a willful rebellion against God’s stated boundaries. Think of it like this- I sin when I do not do what God has said to do (hamartia) or when I do what God has said not to do (paraptoma). In either case, I have offended God’s standard of righteousness and holiness and am subject to His discipline. It is only through faith in Jesus that my sins can be forgiven and His judgment averted
