25. The sin
1. The sin
We know that Adam and Eve dissobeyed God and commited the original sin. Since then, men have commited evil acts: they stole, go to war, commit crimes and give great suffering to the world. Men commit personal sins.
Why so many bad things happens? Because many times we act in the wrong way and commit sin. Sin is the reason of these misfortunes.
God created us free, and we can obbey his commandments or not. When we don't do it we commit sin. For example: don't assist Mass on Sundays, without a reason, is a sin. To tell lies, stole things, fight and insult with our brothers, dissobey our parents or teachers are all sins.
We offend God with our sins. We know it by the Ten Commandments and by the Law of the Church. Our parents, priests and teachers remembered it frequently. But we also know sin is a bad thing because God say it deep in our hearth. This is called voice of conscience.
The worst sins, which offended God a lot, are called mortal sins. Those which aren't so important are called venial sins. Sins can be of though, desire, word, work or omission (by not doing what we must do)
