How does Paul define sin?

I think the discussion on what “sin” is exactly, is way overdue in the church.

“Even though Paul’s definition of sin is relativistic and subjective (with condolences to the modern foundationalist minds who are scandalized by that), it’s actually very rigorous because it covers a lot more ground than merely what the Bible explicitly says not to do. It is whatever kills our trust with God, whatever makes us hesitate on the deepest level, which means that we need to learn how to listen very deeply to what God reveals to our consciences.”
