What is Sin?

I've heard so many competing definitions, and I'd really like to have a solid answer--what is sin?

Can Christians live above it?
Are Christians forgiven when they do it?
Do Christians lose salvation when they commit it?

If you've a good answer, please share it.

sin

sin is separation from God. it is inevitable that finite beings are in some way separate from the infinite--until you get into the mystical circles. that's a different story.

Can Christians live above sin? No. In theory, yes, but, in practice, no.

Are Christians forgiven when they do it? Yes. Unless they do it over and over and over in an effort to destroy their salvation because God doesn't hold people against their will.

Do Christians lose salvation when they commit sin? See above.

Those are my brief answers. Hope it helps.
