What is Sin?

What exactly makes something sinful? Did God arbitrarily choose some things to be bad and some things to be good? We learn what sin is from understanding the nature of God. God is love. And he created us in his image, to be beings full of love. Jesus said all the law and prophets hang on these two commands: love God, and love your neighbor. The essence of sin is action that is not founded in love.
