How does sin affect us?
Things are less than perfect.
Presumably, a social sin would affect society in general, and a personal sin would only affect yourself.Personally, the only "sin" I think is worth worrying about is anything that can harm yourself or others. Note that there are several things that have traditionally been called "sin", which don't really harm anybody. Therefore, personally I try to avoid the use of this term, which is sort of fuzzy.
Angels do not sin so they can not be forgiven. Only humans sin. Not only that, angels were given free will. They can choose to sin! But the consequences are severe because they cannot be forgiven. For us humans, we have NO CHOICE, sin is in us, that is why God sent Jesus to die for us so that we can choose like the angels.
Jesus relates to sin in that all those who sin sin against Him, as He is the Giver of Life and our Creator. Christ is the only One to ever live a life on earth and not to sin ever. Therefore, He is the only One who can forgive us. He intercedes for the believers so that the Father will forgive us through His Son. This process is called Intercession.
What significance does it take for the christians about the passion and death of Jesus on the cross?
The devil tempts us to sin, but it is we who either yield to the temptings or do what's rights. Answer: "...each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after the desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full grown, gives birth to death." (James 1:14-15)
Answer Some sins they don't affect and some sins like, looting, arson, bombing, spreading rumours, sexual harassment, misbehaving in the public places, law breaking etc will definitely affect the society. ---- Sin has reatively no effect on society as whole as politicians, sports figures, and celebrated individuals do the wrong thing all the time.
The question is ambiguous. Cheating on what? Tic-tac-toe? The bar exam? Your wife? This would affect the gravity of the sin. Cheating on your wife is Adultery. It is clearly against the Commandment. It is ALWAYS a Mortal Sin. In the other types of cheating mentioned, gravity of the sin is relational to the gravity of the act. I would say that cheating on an important test is a Mortal Sin.
In the Bible, it sometimes seems that God is most unforgiving. Saint Augustine developed the concept of original sin, with the whole of humanity punished forever for Adam's sin of eating the forbidden fruit, so there needs to be a way of removing that sin, or logic would say that no-one can ever go to heaven. People believe that by means of baptism, that sin is removed.
Sin is being less than what God wants us to be, and He said to be perfect as our father in heaven is perfect. So any act or omission that tends to lead us away from God and not toward him is a sin. A mortal sin needs to have three characteristics. It needs to be grave matter, there has to be full understanding that it is grave matter, and there must be full consent…
