Official List of Sins (New Testament)

Official List of Sins (New Testament)

[Some of you may be interested in this list of sins. We did not originate the list but there are some helpful things here. We are aware that some of the terms are taken from the KJV and they have changed meanings since that time.

Sin is dreadfully evil and disastrous. It is “utterly sinful” (Romans 7:13b) and “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). And yet the average person treats sin in a very casual way and may not even be concerned at all about committing this offense against God! See what you think of the list. Could you add to the list? Or change it in any way? If we were to use a more recent and literal translation, we would change the wording of some of the points. RH]

Here, as laid out by the Sin book, are the 124 sins listed in the new testament (in alphabetical order). Definitions will accompany those that are not self-evident. Though I may edit it somewhat, all definitions are taken straight from the pamphlet. For those who are interested in context, the pamphlet lists the source of each. I will not list them here, but if you want to know email me. I’ll let you know whatever information you need to look it up.

Anyway, get out paper and a pencil and see how you measure up!
