What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. For I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.” (Romans 7:7, ESV)
In the Old Testament, working on Sabbath was a sin because God said so. Eating pork was a sin because God said so. In the New Testament, we are relieved from some laws but adultery is still a sin.
Suppose, after the Judgement Day, we all live in a New Earth, and God says,
"There will be no more monogamy, no more marriage. You are free to sleep with anyone you wish, either male or female.",
will it still be a sin to do this?
Is "sin" a sin just because God says it is sin?
And when God says it is no longer a sin, will it still be a sin?
