I don't understand this structure. Why can i not say "volgens mij alle zonden zijn slecht" Also , then how would we ask do "i think all sins are bad?"

Volgens mij means according to me or in my opinion. If you start a sentence with Volgens mij, the word order is different than if you start it with Ik denk or Ik geloof.

The verb has to come in second place. In this sentence is "Volgens mij" the unit before the verb.

"Zijn volgens mij alle zonden slecht?" or
"Denk ik dat alle zonden slecht zijn?"
