Does it separate man from God?

Take Uzzah for example. Tried to protect the ark from being tossed from the cart. His intentions were good, but they were wrong. He fell short, and the bible records this. 2 Samuel 6:7 "And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
Did it separate him from God?
Like David did when he had Uriah killed so he could have his wife?
Moses sinned defiantly against God, really?
Like Moses did when he wasn't allowed into the promised land?
You have a very low opinion of biblical figures.
And Moses punishment was that he wasn't allowed into the land of Israel. Nothing about him "being separated from God".
Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it on the islands from afar, and say, "He Who scattered Israel will gather them together and watch them as a shepherd his flock."
