What if we are not sure of what is right or wrong in a particular situation? Saint John says that sin is lawlessness. God's law defines sin. I find the Westminster Larger Catechism list of what the law commands and forbids very instructive. It is a careful study of scripture. For example, do you think of "undue delay of marriage" as a violation of the seventh commandment? It is. Many of life's decisions would be clearer if we were better students of the word.
