“…every transgression and disobedience received a just reward…” (Hebrews 2:2).
Sin is when an act of commission (transgression) and/or an act of omission (disobedience) occurs.
Transgression (parabasis) is a violation of God’s law. It occurs every time you step across a divinely drawn boundary line. Adam’s sin was an act of commissioned sin (Romans 5:14). God had drawn a boundary line in the Garden of Eden in which He separated the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil from all of the other trees’ fruit. Adam intentionally transgressed that line. He sinned.
Disobedience (parakoe) is a violation of God’s law. It occurs every time you fail to obey a divine command. Adam’s sin was also an act of omitted obedience (Romans 5:19). God had permitted him to eat the fruit of every tree in the Garden (except one). He failed to obey this command. He sinned.
Every transgression and disobedience is sin and deserves a just reward of divine punishment.
