Is It True That There Are 667 Sins?

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by Polly, Jan 3, 2014.

  1. I started reading the Bible yesterday or 2 days ago. But is it true that there are 667 sins? Or how many sins are there?

    Also, do I always have to start the Bible again if I read it all?

    By the way, is it true that Christianity comes from Judaism?
  2. I do not know about the number of sins! I think people have tried to identify all references of sin from the Bible and come up with the number 667. Probably there are things which would grouped into it. For example, drug addiction is not going to be there in the Bible. Some might argue that it is referred indirectly in some other form.

    Yes! You have to keep on reading the Word of God. It is manna for our souls. God has revealed his will through his Word. We have to dwell in it. Rather than "reading" the Bible, try "studying" the bible. That is, taking the Word into heart and exhibiting it in our actions. You can try studying Bible in various ways. Topical studies, chapter-wise studies, using some reading plans. Right now I am doing one year Bible reading plan and meditating on Romans.

    Yes, it is true Christianity comes from Judaism. Christ himself was born a Jew.
  3. There is only one (1) sin, willful rebellion against God.
    There are, however, millions of ways to commit that one sin.
    Anyone who attempts to put meaningless numbers on such things
    is wandering off into legalism.
    Silk likes this.
  4. Christianity is Judaism reformed with a New Covenant and God Himself (Jesus) as our High Priest.
  5. Polly - is that a pic of Alan Richman you are using as an avatar?
  6. The man in my avatar picture is the movie version Severus Snape from Harry Potter, but Severus Snape is played by Alan Rickman. :3
  7. I hit the wrong key. Thanks - I was curious
