Not doing what someone else says his god insists you do or failing to follow what his god says are rules.


The Bible's definition of sin:

"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for SIN IS the TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW." (I John 3:4 KJV)

[NLT; New Living Translation]: "Those who sin are opposed to the law of God, for ALL SIN OPPOSES THE LAW OF GOD."

Sin is the breaking of the Ten Commandments:

"Well then, am I suggesting that the law of God is evil? Of course not! The law is not sinful, but it was the law that showed me my sin. I would never have known that coveting is wrong if the law had not said, 'Do not covet!" (Rom.7:7 NLT)

Coveting is the 10th Commandment. It's the breaking of the Ten Commandments that defines sin.

"Oh, how I Love your Law! I think about it all day long. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for your commands are my constant guide." (Ps.119:97-98 NLT)

Sin is an outdated concept believed in by people who who associate the word of God or Allah with medieval or ancient social morality. Such people have generally not noticed that history has happened. Today most people believe that bad actions are those that harm others and tend not to call them sin.

cos*cot + sin = cos*cos/sin + sin = cos2/sin + sin = (cos2 + sin2)/sin = 1/sin = cosec

There are no degrees of sin, all sin is sin

sin(3A) = sin(2A + A) = sin(2A)*cos(A) + cos(2A)*sin(A)= sin(A+A)*cos(A) + cos(A+A)*sin(A) = 2*sin(A)*cos(A)*cos(A) + {cos^2(A) - sin^2(A)}*sin(A) = 2*sin(A)*cos^2(A) + sin(a)*cos^2(A) - sin^3(A) = 3*sin(A)*cos^2(A) - sin^3(A)
