e) How many kinds of sins are?
f) And how the fight against sin?
a) The Bible describes sin as "lawlessness" (being without law): 1 John 3:4
b) The laws of God are commanded to teach people what sin is (1 Timothy 1:9, Romans 3:20). These laws were given for the benefit and happiness of people, for peace, good trim and prosperity of a society in which they live and especially to prepare the people for the Kingdom of God, without sin, to come on earth (Isaiah 48:17 -19, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10).
c) The people of God in ancient times were given some harsh laws, like the law of retaliation, the laws of preservation, of spiritual purity, etc., does this mean that God is evil (Exodus 21:22-25, Exodus 21 : 17, Exodus 22:18-20)? No, but these laws were preventive laws, they were meant to show the gravity of sins in the eyes of God (Romans 7:13). If people would obey the laws of God, no one would have to suffer such dramatic consequences (Deuteronomy 30:19).
d) The Bible teaches us that the changes took place with the Aaronic Priesthood and therefore a change in law (Hebrew 7:12). By the beginning of the mission of our Lord Jesus Christ, the law acted as advisor, but that role was ceded to the Son of God, who was "The Prophet" predicted by Moses (Galatians 3:18-29, Deuteronomy 18:15-19). Changing the law could not be without fall under criminal law. An act assumed, that the Son of God took upon himself, the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13, 2 Corinthians 5:21). This change was made on the basis of God's promise to Abraham, to facilitate reconciliation, so that all nations would enter into a relationship with God, their Creator (Genesis 10:18 p.m., Galatians 3:14, Ephesians 2:10-22, Colossians 2:8-14, 2 Corinthians 3:2-13). The new law, called the "law of Christ", "royal law" and "law of liberty" untited some old commands, to further some old orders, while making certain new commands us (1 Corinthians 9:21, Galatians 6:2, James 2:8,12, John 5:16-18, Mark 7:18-23, Matthew 19:16-19, Matthew 5:31-48, Matthew 13:52).
e) Given that you have to proclaim the gospel (good news) to all people (keep in mind that not every sin is forgiven and knowing this truth we are urged not to waste our time in vain, but to try to convince people that were not defiled with unforgivable sin), there are two categories of sins: the sins that can be forgiven, and the sins that can not be forgiven (Matthew 7:6, Matthew 12:31,32, 1 John 5:16).
f) In the struggle with sin must be categorical to reject any kind of sin, knowing that God's people have to stand up against the power of sins (1 John 3:6,9, 1 John 5:18). If you do sin, those sins are due to the imperfection of our nature, they are not deliberate, they come by accident or are forced upon us by others or greater powers (powers of darkness), our sins are an accident and not a part of our way of life, knowing all that, we should endeavour to avoid them, asking for the advice and support of brothers (James 5:16, Romans 8:31-39).
