Cosmic Human Rebellion
That is what sin is all about.
Think LT made a good point last night when he said that most Christians tend to trivialise sin as personal bad habits....personal problems with ourselves. In his notes, he writes:

It is a cosmic rebellion against God led by the first human pair in desiring to become autonomous.
To have an independent knowledge of good and evil.
As a consequence of this fall, humans are experiencing ruptures at all levels of relationships:
Between themselves and God.
Among themselves.
Between them and nature.
Within nature.
Sin is therefore our missing the moral mark set for us by our Creator because we are all partakers in this rebellion.

Now that's worth chewing on for a while.
