    Sin is Disease, and the Wages of Sin (Disease) is Death

    Disease occurs when man disobeys God's laws of this Universe and nature (eating included). "THOU SHALT NOT KILL" is a Supreme Law of the Universe and man disobeys this law by slaughtering and eating animals. As long as man disobeys God's laws, disease (or sin) will exist. In other words, stop killing and you eliminate disease (sin)...

    The brain controls and directs the body and mind of man. The brain itself, however, is a receiver operated upon by cosmic influences, and must operate according to the directing force or intelligence of its source of power...

    Man has been deficient in understanding because his brain receiver did not vibrate to certain subtle influences. The dynamic cells in the gray matter of the brain's nerves were not finely attuned and did not respond - hence sin, or falling short of understanding...

    From the teachings of the chemisry of life we find that the basis of the brain or nerve fluid is the mineral potassium phosphate. A deficiency in this brain constituent means "sin," or a falling short of judgment or proper comprehension...

    Disease (lack of atonement, or "at-one-ment") or deficiency (sin) is the cause of death. Otherwise none would die. The Creator made laws relative to right eating and right living, and when man disobeys these laws (or sins against God), the physical and mental processes deteriorate; the intake of vital forces decreases, and death inevitably results...

    When man eliminates disease, he eliminates death, which is the last enemy that man must overcome. IT IS THE WILL OF GOD...

    I believe that all sins are the result of lack of a living faith in God. Denial of the ressurection and the hereafter - whether by word of mouth or conduct - is at the root of all sin and crime in the world. There can be no real and effective check on sin - or incentive to good works - without a true and real belief in life after death...

    According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, sin is nothing else than a morally bad act, an act not in accord with reason informed by the Divine law. God has endowed us with reason and free will, and a sense of responsibility; He has made us subject to His law, which is known to us by the dictates of conscience, and our acts must conform with these dictates, otherwise we sin...

    i dont prescribe to "sin" i believe that we move "closer" and "further" away from Olodumare's (God's) plan. In african spirituality we use terms more akin to "alignment" and "misalignment" and these relate to Ori (Destiny, Spiritual Consciousness) and Ona (Road, Path to Walk).

    This plan included complementary plans for each us individually, each of our families, each of our communities, each of our nation, our planet, and then outward. to deny that plan doesnt not "wound" God, only ourselves.

    We push ourselves further away from the life He/She intends for us, which usually results in strife and pain - and most importantly requires most of us to return to rectify our actions in our next life. we return and return again until we are insync with that plan and have the learned the lessons within it.

    There is a belief also that eating, adequate rest, meditation, physical excercise and constant appeasement and worship of the Ancestors and Gods are crucial to success. It is the Circle of Life. I see reflections of this same philosphy in "alignment and misalignment" among devotees of native american, east indian and asian spiritual systems.

    i am wondering if u have read your bible or a bible? b/c in the bible GOD gives permission to eat just about anything as long as u ask for HIS blessing first. and the misconception that most ppl have about GOD is that HE is always kind......wrong. throughout the bible and history in itself there have been wars that have been blessed by GOD. we are not aware of all of the battles that HE has blessed b/c if it is not for us to know then that is how it is. we r HIS children and each person has there own path to follow and mission to carry out.....now if we comply is another story/subject.

    The simple definition of sin

    Sin is the willfully or unwillfully disobedience of God's will by word, thought or deed. In Genisis 2 God told Adam do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or you will surely die. God said not to eat and Adam ate, this is when the spiritual man died and sin entered man's nature. Man had the propencity to disobey God and did so. This forever changed our holy nature. We were made perfect. We were God's crowning glory. His most magnificent of all creations. Not because we were endowed with supernatural power but because we had God's love. God gave us a choice to freely accept His love. To do so requires trust and obedience. We did not trust nor did we obey. But God still loves us anyway.


    Peace

    What Is The Meaning Of The Word Sin ?

    In the Webster's New World Dictionary of the American Language , Sin Is Defined As ; ( 1 ) . The breaking of religious law or moral principle especially through A willfull act . ( 2 ) . To commit an offense or fault of any kind , Do wrong .

    According to Westminister Dictionary of the Bible ;
    Any want or conformity unto , or transgression of any law of the creator , Given as A rule to the reasonable creature ... A Sin of omission is the ; Neglect to do what the law of the creator commands ; A sin of commission is the doing of anything which it forbids .

    In the Hebrew language the word , Chaatath and Chattaah , frequently signify '' Sin '' . Hebrew Sabean Syrian Ethiopian

    In Arabic language , Sin is expressed by the following words ,
    Khatt'Atun ; Sin , Error , Fault , A Wrong , Ithun ; A Sin , Guilt , Iniquity

    Dhannun ; Sin , A Crine , Aathimun ; One who sins , An evil doer ( I.E. Cain )
    Athama ; To pronounce guilty , Khit'un ; An error , fault . Sin
    Athima ; To sin , Khatiy'a ; By mistake , Athaam ; Punishment of wickedness ,
    Akhta'a ; To be in error , To sin habitual , Sin - fulness .
    Khati'a ; To do wrong , Khaati'un ; One who Sins , A Sinner , Sinful .

    To sin is to disobey Allah Most Glorified And Exalted's Laws , Disobedience fall into two categories ; sinning knowingly and sinning unknowingly . When A man commits A Sin UNKNOWINGLY it is called Saghiyratun or A '' Small Sin'' .literally it mean '' small ''. However when a man commits A sin knowingly and ignores it , It is A Kabiyratun , or A large or great sin '' ( Literally it means '' Large or great ) . The fires of hell will be kindled in man's breast because man will be judge by his sins not for them . The sins that man commits originate in his heart center as a result of his exercising '' WILL ''

    Book to Roman by Paul ( In Arabic ) 6;14-16 And I Quote ; '' For sin shall not have dominion over you ; For ye are not under the law , But under grace . What then ? Shall we sin , Because we are not under the law , But under grace , Allah forbid , Know ye not , That to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey . His servants ye are to whom ye ; obey ; Whether of Sin Unto death , or of obedince unto righteousness ,


    Book of 1 John ( In Arabic ) 3;4 , And I Quote ; WhoSoEver committeth sin transgessth also the law ; For sin is the transgression of the law

    Book Of Luke By Matthew ( In Arabic ) 6;45 And I Quote ; A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good ; And an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil . For of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh .


    Men are sinners because they have gone against the '' WILL '' of Allah Most Glorified And Exalted , or against what they took His will to be , or what they might have known His will to be . Sin is primarily A matter of the heart because Allah Most Glorified And Exalted judges man by his in-tention , Once that intention is carried out and becomes A deed , it expresses a deeper sin .

    Book of 1John 3; 9-12 ( In Arabic ) And I Quote ; WhoSoEver is born of Allah doth not commit sin ; for his seed remaineth in him ; And he cannot sin . because he is born of Allah , In this the children of Allah are manifest , And the children of the devil ; WhoSoEver doeth not righteousness is not of Allah , Neither he that loveth not his brother . For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning , That we should love one another . Not As Cain , Who was of that wicked one . and slew his brother . And wherefore slew he him ? Because his own works were evil , And his brother's righteous .

    The devil ( ch ) waits at the door for your soul in hope that he will seduce you to commit sin . Cain's encounter with the devil ( ch ) is a sign and a warning for you that the Devil ( ch ) and his hosts Jinns , will do everything in their power to sway you from the right path In one second he will enter you , plant a negative thought inside you and in the next second he has left you and gone on to the next person on his list of advocates , leaving your life and the lives of those closet to you in completes . Because Cain was extremely vexed about the results of the sacrifice , he opened his heart to the evil passions . of ENVY ,ANGER . And Violence , Which are attributes of the Devil [ ch ] Ibliys [ ch ] then said unto him ; ( IF YOU LEAVE HIM ALIVE HIS PROSPERITY FOR ALL TIME SHALL TAKE PRIDE IN THEIR SUPERIORITY ; ) Al Quraan 5;27 ..

    Cain decided in his heart that he was not going to yield to his sister marrying his brother Abel regardless of whose sacrifice Allah Most Glorified And Exalted accepted . Whereas , his brother Abel on the other hand , who was glad for the sacrifice said ; ( WHATEVER THE JUDGEMENT OF THE CREATOR IS . THAT YE SHALL FOLLOW ) . Abel vowed that in the the event Cain chose to destroy him , he would not raise hishand against him ( Al Quraan 5;28-29 .
