What is Sin?

What is sin?  I recently heard a preacher define it as "not choosing God's best for you."  Really? Is that what sin is?  Are we trying not to offend anyone?  Heaven forbid!  Does that somehow make sin more palatable?  Do we feel less guilt if we define it that way?  I say call  sin what it is:  missing the mark, rebellion against God, disobedience.  And then I say, "Thank God for His mercy and grace."
