SIN is the main problem from the time of Jesus until now in our generation, and we all can't stop do/make/commit SIN . How do we solve this problem ? Religion and Denomination has been existing for how many years, and still many people are still committing sin . What do you think is the solution to stop committing SIN ?

Sin is DOING YOUR OWN WILL , it is Man's Disobedience against the will of God.

If sin is disobedience against the will of a god than how do we know what god and what its will is?

Humans have always committed sins, and will always do. It's not just limited to 'now'. No human living on earth right now haven't committed several sins in their life. It's just the nature of us humans. There's no solution because there's no problem in the first place. It's not like we can stop sinning. The world isn't prefect friend. Just live with it.

Some people have never committed a sin. There is no sin in Buddhism or the teachings of Confucius so the followers of these religions are by definition without sin.

Following a religion that automatically states me as someone who never sins doesn't exactly mean I don't sin. Sin doesn't depend on what religion you practice, it doesn't change. If I continue to explain this we're going to end up arguing about what religion defines sin the best, or if sin is actually there and that it's not just lies, and I'm not really in the mood for such arguments. So I'm going to leave it at this point. Thanks for you opinion though.

I don't think there is any way to stop sin...It has become the part of human race...Every single person on earth has different views on what sin means...What i see as a sin may not been seen so by a person with an entirely different view... So it is what we can do to ourselves to improve our view on different subjects rather than forcing another person to change that matters... Do you think religion is enough for preventing sinners???Then what about the people who worship devil???

I agree to what you have said my friend. Let's just generalize the word Sin, and I think most of us think that Sin is Man's opposition or disobedience against the will of God . SIN is really a big problem , and an issue that is really hard to face..

Man's greatest problem has been sin since the time of Adam. Sin, by definition, is disobedience to the will of God. Man keeps sinning because he wants to do what he wants to do, not what God has decreed that he should do. Man sees something that belongs to another and covets it. This is the first sin. He steals the item. That is the second sin. When he is questioned about the theft, he denies it, thus committing the third sin. So it goes, round and round. The solution is for man to submit himself to the will of God.

a BIG AMEN to you bellis, and I totally agree for what you have said . Repentance and surrendering our will to him and submitting ourselves to righteousness or to the will of God . May the Father Bless you :)

There are only two way IF you want 100% no sin: 1. erase human race 2. delete religion and any culture (it is the same with erasing humanity) Both of them I do not agree. So sin is a nature of human race. But we can not just look for someone as our savior or messiah to repent all of our sin. Our sin is ours, which we should take responsibility and repent it. So what we can do is doing everything carefully. Life is always has two side like day and night. If there is no sin or sinner, how can you say your deed is good and heavenly?

Until all of us learn to be contend with our portion and to do unto others as we'd have them do unto us, there will be sin until Christ tosses Satan into the bottomless pit.

I have no idea on how to stop sin from happening. Because as human beings we are really bond to commit mistakes, this is our "imperfection" and what makes us human beings i guess. The better approach for me would be to prevent as much as possible. "Prevention is better than cure" like what most people say. As long as you keep your morale standards up and stay positive, you can be sure to prevent sin from happening. Happy myLotting :)

I really don't agree with that, at the very beginning God created Adam and Eve with no SIN at all , Mistakes are human error, but SIN are disobedience against the will of God . Let's admit this, no matter how we try to keep ourselves good, no matter how we try to make our lives positive, we don't have the power to get rid to it PERMANENTLY . it's just like a big Bondage bounded within us.

The solution is in the Book of Romans in the Bible. It was written by Apostle Paul, the servant of Christ Jesus. Paul explained very clearly why we are committing sins, and how can we be set free from committing sins. I myself is reading and re-reading this Book of Romans many times, for clearer understanding about God, man, sin, Christ, grace, mercy, repentance and salvation. All your questions as to why will be answered.

The nub of the problem and the answer (at least a partial solution) are to be found in Romans 7 to 8, and 1 John. I don't propose to rival the excellent commentaries and other literature on these passages that you can find online (The writings of John Fletcher and some other genuinely Wesleyan Methodists are the most optimistic in respect of what degree of holiness we can expect to attain to in this life, but I think the Puritans, such as Joseph Alleine, William Guthrie, and Matthew Meade are more realistic), but I think the following apply: 1. Without the Holy Spirit we are totally under the power of sin, even our "righteousnesses" are sin, and we are under the just condemnation of God for it. 2. With the Holy Spirit, i.e., when saved by the Blood of Christ, we are saved from the power of sin, we do not have to sin. But in fact we still fall into sins and must confess and depart. 3. Our aims for holiness must be higher than those who aim merely to keep the letter of the Law (If your righteousness does not exceed that of the Pharisees ...). 4. Our hope is that when Christ comes for us we will be like Him and if we have this hope in us, we strive to be pure as He is pure. 5. We are not condemned if we walk after the Spirit. If we believe on Christ and genuinely try, we must confess our sins to God and to those suffering as a result of them with all practicable restitution. One day the Grace of God will make us free of sin (almost certainly this day is either when we depart this life or when He comes).

this is a big problem. we can't solve it at all. it's already part of being human. we always commit mistakes. no religion can save us nor stop us from being sinful. but instead, we may at least try to avoid doing sinful things.

The only way to stop it is to take away a person's free will. People choose evil simply because they do not fully understand what it is. God solves the problem simply by returning our actions back to us to show us exactly what our choices mean. WE do not want to stop free will. There would be no true learning without it. Sometimes the mistakes people make will lead to greater wisdom than they could acquire any other way. God's system which includes having sin in it, is working pretty well. There is Genius behind everything. My vote is to leave it alone and let God's system work.
