#ourCOG Are all Sins the Same? Answer. According to the Bible…
Are all Sins the Same?
According to the Bible NO.
However, God views all Sins as Sin.
1. The Bible uses comparative words like “Greater Sin”
John 19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the GREATER SIN.
2. The Bible also uses words like “Great sin”
Exodus 32:31 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a GREAT SIN, and have made them gods of gold.
THE SECOND ARGUMENT
God views all Sins as Sin so don’t console yourself with a wrong notion of “small sins”
1. To break one of God’s law is to break All.
James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
2. God equates Sins we consider “small” to the ones we consider “big”
A. 1 Samuel 15:23″ For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…”
B. Matthew 5:28 “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”
To lust after a woman =Adultery
C. 1 John 3:15 “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer…”
To hate your brother= Murder
3. All grades of Sinners goes to the Lake of fire.
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and MURDERERS, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and ALL LIARS, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Although all Sins don’t appear the same in magnitude yet sin is Sin. Flee from it.
God killed people for idolatry
God also killed Ananais and Sapphira for lying (Acts 5)
God also killed the Israelites for complaining (Numbers 21)
All unrighteousness is Sin. Worry less about the magnitude or intensity. Walk in the Spirit.
