Is there really sin? Many people don't believe in sin anymore
One of the major themes of the Bible, beginning in the Book of Genesis and weaving all the way through to the Book of Revelation is the influence of sin on the relationship between man and God.

Greed is celebrated
All aspects of culture center around personal satisfaction and gain. Television advertising zeros in on this and appeals to our selfishness. Not only do they make you want something, they tell you that you deserve it and because of this, anything that gets in the way is wrong.
Bigger house, better car, any little pleasures of life are yours because you are entitled. Advertising appeals to the worst of our nature.
We turn from God as we sin
Sin is just turning away from God. Sometimes it's unintentional, but in all too many cases, it's deliberate.
The Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) is filled with accounts of people turning away, suffering, then turning back. Sin is an inconvenient truth.
The Bible teaches that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) It goes on to warn that "the wages of sin is death." (Romans 6:23) This death is eternal separation from God, a never-ending punishment.
But it also goes on to say that "the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Realizing that we all turn away from Him and sin, God's grace is extended to us through His son, Jesus.
