The short answer is "knowing how to make yourself god of your life". This is the basic sin - the evil that we are all born with since Adam "the first Man" - that Jesus "the second Man" came to deal with on the cross. The Scriptures are full of people who made themselves god of their lives - most of the Israelite kings after Solomon "did what was evil in God's sight". They serve as a warning to us to "seek God while He may be found".
