Sin of omission is one that is wrong because you failed to do something that you should have done. A better example is that when you were asked a question about something that happened, you didn't lie about what happened, you just didn't say that something did happen. For example, you are describing an argument that happened between Bob and Sue. You tell all about the fact that Bob called Sue some aweful names and that Sue responded by slapping Bob across the face. Then the argument was done. However, you didn't tell anyone that, after Sue slapped Bob, she told him that if he ever talked to her again, she was going to kill him. That would be a sin of omission. Better yet, you are working as a check-out clerk at a store. YOu see the clerk at the next aisle give the customer $10 too little change, and then pocket the money. You go home and don't say anything. You have done your job exactly as it should be done. However, you know that you should have reported the other clerk. That is a sin of omission.

A sin of omission is failing to do something good when you know you should. The parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible is a classic example of this (Luke 10:30-37). Both t…he priest and the Levite passed by the injured man without helping him, leaving him half-dead. James 4:17, "Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin" (Bible).
It depends on the circumstances and thus the gravity of the sin. For instance, these are both sins of omission: failing to go to your job because you didn't feel like it… deprives your dependents of the wages they rely on to live as well as damaging and inconveniencing your workplace, its customers and human relations and thus is probably mortal sin. Not doing your laundry because you were lazy is also a sin of omission, but its probably venial, if that. The same degree of gravity applies to sins of commission. What it comes down to is the intent of the sinner, the gravity of the sin, any circumstances (number, amount, value, number of people it affects, etc.) that affect the gravity of the sin and the act of the sin itself.
Omission is the act of leaving something out. It is usually purposeful, but can sometimes be an accidental exclusion. Omission can have negative connotations when it refer…s to a failure to do one's duty or to be fully honest.
Noun 1. something that has been left out or passed over 2. an act of missing out or failing to do something: we regret the omission of these and the names of the other f…ine artists
Something that has been left out of has been neglected. When someone has been given a responsibility and has failed in that responsibility. It is neglecting to do someth…ing; leaving out or passing over something. God will judge us on our omission to keep the commandments.
A sin by ommission is the failure to do something which one was obliged to do, or ought to have done. Withholding the truth can be considered a sin just as much as is telli…ng an outright lie.
ommision is is a failure to do something one can and ought to do. If this happens advertently and freely, it is considered a sin. The degree of guilt incurred by an omission… is measured like that attaching to sins of commission, by the dignity of the virtue and the magnitude of the precept to which the omission is opposed as well as the amount of deliberation. A person may be guilty of a sin of omission by failing to do something which he is able to do and which he ought to do, by reason of a cause for which he is entirely responsible, as when a person knows that drinking to drunkness will incapacitate him, and yet drinks. Paul the Apostle refers to this sin directly when he states "For I do not do the good I want ..." (Romans 7:19) The act or an instance of omitting.The state of having been omitted.Something omitted or neglected this is commission
All of them, the same sins that were prevelant at the dawn of man are still with us today. They may take on new guises but essentially they are still the same.
Not doing something that one should have done is Error of Omission. Doing something that one should not have done is Error of Commission.
