What here i am: What is the significance of sin in Christianity and Judaism?
In Christianity you’re “saved” just by accepting Jesus (AS). So this means you are saved from Hell. You are guaranteed a place in Heaven. So What does it matter if you sin or not?
In Judaism there is no Hell apparently. So what is the significance of sin there. What does it matter if you sin or not?

‘Sin’ is nothing more than thinly-veiled coercion designed to incite fear, guilt and blind obedience in a population of ignorant religious lemmings.

Sin separates us from God. Atonement removes the sin.
In Judaism it is by shedding innocent blood in place of the guilty. In Christianity, it is the same thing; but in Judaism, animal sacrifices are used; but in Christianity, Jesus gave Himself freely and paid the cost of Atonement.Answer by Lone Ranger,Christian Israelite

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death;Answer by Sally
Jesus was a Jew and preaching to Jews said there was a hell so Judaism denies this fact at their peril. Sin is transgression of the Law (the ten commandments) and nobody can avoid sinning, it is far to difficult so everybody needs a Saviour to be reconciled to God the Father, Jews and Christians.

Sin is any act or attitude that you have that hurts God, yourself, and others. Jesus told us that the two commandments are that we love God with all of our heart and love others as ourselves.
When we truly accept Jesus as our Lord and our Savior, we listen to Him and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us to do what God wants us to do. Yes, after we accept Jesus, we are guaranteed a place in Heaven unless, we turn away from Him and do not want to be with Him. Although we are forgiven, we don’t entirely stop sinning because we are human. It matters if you sin or not because we hurt others and ourselves with our sins.Answer by TaZ
Hell is a mistranslation and an error from dark ages!

The Hebrew word for “sin” means “miss” – a missed opportunity to fulfill a commandment.
There is no punishment for sinning in Judaism. You just have to live with the fact that you’ve done something wrong. It should present an opportunity to do things the next time around.
Jews practice Judaism not for fear of hell or the promise of heaven, but because we find it fulfilling to do so.
