Systematic Study


The Bible speaks of sin in a broad sense to include intentional and unintentional offensive behavior towards an individual, nation or God.

The act of sin includes the whole process from commission to consequence; it sets in motion a process of destruction that affects the individual and his community.

Often contrasted against God’s character of goodness, sin is portrayed as morally bad / evil, depraved / corrupt that opposes God and threatens one's existence.

The systematic study of this complex issue of sin is called Hamartiology.
