Sin is caused by not believing in God and the son of man by not doing the works of the son of man since believing in the son of man is doing the works He did as Jesus said.

IE;

John 16:

7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
8 And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:
9 about sin, because they do not believe in me;

John 14:12

12 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father.

Do ourselves do the works of the son of man?

If not you are a sinner.

"Sinners won't be allowed in the assembly of the righteous."

I'm not sure what sin is. I believe the children of Israel (blackish and Asianish) need to do the law.

Jesus is the way, the truth and life.

Sin is doing something you know you shouldn't.

The son of man is the way, the truth, the life, the wisdom, the love, the mercy, the righteousness, the glory, the help, the compassion, the spirit, the knowledge, the kindness and the protection of God.

The son of man is One with the Father and the prophets are One with the Lord.

Believe in me and you will be One with the Lord.

Sin is any unfaithfulness in the Lord (Numbers 5:6).

Jesus redefined the terms in the Sermon on the Mount - see the adultery section where lusting makes one guilty of adultery. Obviously the damage is increased when people act it out and consequences result.

Not under the new covenant.

Do ourselves do the works of the son of man?

If not you are a sinner.

"Sinners won't be allowed in the assembly of the righteous."
Rom 5:12 Therefore, even as through one man sin entered into the world, and through sin death, and thus death passed through into all mankind, and for that reason, all sin -"

Mankind sins because mankind is dying.

What were the works Christ did?

From Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible:

"And greater works than these - The miracles which I have wrought could not have been wrought but by the omnipotence of God; but that omnipotence can work greater. And those who believe on my name shall, through my almighty power, be enabled to work greater miracles than those which l have ordinarily wrought. An impostor might seduce the people by false miracles; but he could not make his power and cunning pass to all those who were seduced by him: but I will give you this proof of the divinity of my mission and the truth of my doctrine."

Sin is disobedience to G-d's Commandments...
