What is sin?

Sin is any want of conformity unto, or transgression of, any law of God, given as a rule to the reasonable creature.[1]
  1. I John 3:4
    Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.

    Gal. 3:10, 12
    For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”

    But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.”

Question 24, Westminster Larger Catechism.
