DEFINITION OF SIN

The free transgression of a divine law is a sin. Since every law is derived from the divine law, natural or positive, every transgression of a punitive law of legitimately constituted authority, is a sin.

Sin may be mortal or venial. It is mortal when the transgression is of a divine law in a matter that is serious and when the consent to sin recognizes both the law and the serious matter. A sin is venial when it is either committed out of imperfect knowledge and consent, when one transgresses a law which does not bind seriously, or when a sin is actually grave but, because of an invincibly erroneous conscience, the one committing it is ignorant of its gravity. Sin is also classified as to type: Internal sins are those committed through use of the spiritual faculties, e.g., imagination; actual sin is any sinful act or omission of a prescribed good act; habitual sin is the state of sin of one who has not repented. The sin is formal when it is deliberate against a law, even if the law is only supposed to exist; it is material when the transgression is against a law, but when knowledge of the transgression's sinfulness is lacking it is actually no real sin because it lacks consent. (Cf. Commandments of God; Precepts of the Church.)
