What is Sin?

"Whether or not anything is a sin is not determined by what we think or how we feel about it, but solely by this: does it or does it not agree with the Word of God? Sin is not a physical, but a moral condition, and it consists in this, that a given act, behaviour, or condition of man is not what God wants it to be; it is nonconformity with the will of God...The question whether or not anything is or is not a sin, is not determined by our person opinion, our knowledge, our intention, or our will, but solely by this one fact, whether or not it is in agreement with the will of God." ~ William Pile, What the Bible Says About Grace, p. 18
