What Is Sin?

Since getting an mp3 player for Christmas, I've discovered the wonderful world of podcasts. Other than the Bible -in -a -Year, one of my favorites is by John Piper. Since listening to his daily 15- minute messages for the last month, this one takes the cake. Here's the link where you can read it, listen to it on your computer (it's just an mp3 file), or put it on your portable player.
Without giving it away, Piper masterfully summarizes Romans to help us understand that sin is primarily an offense to God (above and beyond how it impacts our human relations). This is a powerful sermon. Please give it a listen.
