The word “sinned” in Romans in the Greek is “hamartano” and is spoken as (ham-ar-tan’-o; perh); meaning to “miss the mark (and so not share in the prize).”
Imagine if you are an archer, you shoot your arrow at the bull’s eye; you either hit it or miss it. Well, that’s what it is to sin, God has set the standard of life which by man can be right with him, and no one has hit the bull’s eye.
|Laying out for mankind the benchmarks (base lines)
which mankind should conduct their life by. They are
absolutes from God,
To live outside of these Boundaries set by God
Almighty, is sin!
Then there are the personal instructions God may give
to an individual whilst on the journey of life here on
To disregard these would be sin.
i.e. Missing the mark God has set for you as an individual.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
