What is sin?

Doing what you know you shoudn't is sin:
To him that knows to do good and does it not, to him it is sin.  
James 4:17

All people are tainted with sin:
It is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.  
Romans 3:10

If we say we have no sin, we decieve ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1 John 1:10

Sin is hereditary:
Sin entered into the world because of Adam's disobedience, all sin leads to death; and so death passed upon all men and so now sin is passed on to all men.
Romans 5:12
(keynote:  Adam was given dominion over all the earth and all that is in it.  When Adam disobeyed God, all things under his authority were effected by hi choice to sin.)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Romans 6:23
