He is a Violator of the Law

  "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all" (James 2: 10). This is difficult for many to accept because they have accepted the idea that those who violate the law somehow are not really guilty of anything, can "plea bargain," hire a lawyer and get away with whatever they have done. Justice, truth and evidence has little place in the nation's present judicial system. One does not have to lie, steal, murder, rape, kidnap and other crimes to be guilty of criminal behavior. Murder alone makes that person a criminal and violator of the law.

  When a person violates God's law he becomes a sinner. He does not have to violate every precept to be classed as a sinner. Sin is a transgression of the law (1 John 3: 4). Sinners must seek forgiveness or else suffer for their sins, either now or the hereafter, and very likely both, but certainly the hereafter.
