I'm trying to find a right word to use. Are sins made or done, maybe created? I know that I can say: 'he sinned' but i want to have the noun.

  • He (made) a sin when he killed that woman.

Please help.

    Either "He sinned when he killed that woman." or "He committed a sin when he killed that woman" are grammatical sentences. – Mark Ripley Dec 8 '16 at 7:58

    I suggest you use Longman Dictionaries for collocations or Oxford Learners Dictionary.. There can many collocations associated with a word..So it would save time.Here is the link ldoceonline.com/dictionary/sin – Mrt Dec 8 '16 at 13:22

You neither make nor do a sin. Instead, you sin or commit a sin.

He committed a sin when he killed that woman

He committed the sin of killing that woman.

He sinned when he killed that woman.

  • Alright. I'll use commit! – SovereignSun Dec 8 '16 at 8:17
