What is my definition of sin?
The Gloria in excelsis in prayer books reads:
Glory to God in the highest,
and peace to his people on earth.
Lord God, heavenly King,
almighty God and Father,
we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory.
Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world:
have mercy on us;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father.
What does Jesus do? He takes away sins. Now we are back where we started. God takes away sin—by His definition of sin—not by mine!
Lord have mercy on me
Christ have mercy on me
