Full Answer

Sin is mentioned so many times because the Bible considers it a very serious problem. Many different types of sin are mentioned, so the total count that any type of sin is mentioned would be even higher. The Bible states that everyone has sinned (Romans 3:23), that the punishment is death (Romans 6:23) and that all sin can be forgiven by trusting in Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9).
