Generally speaking, are some sins worse than others? November 18, 2013 By Brad 7 Comments Generally speaking, are some sins worse than others? Do you think God rates them on a “curve”? Do you? Share this:FacebookTwitterEmailRedditPrint
I believe that no one sin is worse then another to God. The main thing is recognizing it, repenting (stop doing it) and asking god to forgive us. Homosexuality is in the news daily because the one’s practicing it want the public to change their minds about it being sin, and on top of that, they must think God will go along with public opinion! Promoting homosexuality is no different then promoting murder, blasphemy, lying, cheating, slander and all the other sins. Man’s spiritual connection with his Creator is at a very low point today and, with Satanic pressure, getting weaker. For those who were on the cusp of believing and salvation, they’ve been let down by those who CLAIM to be Christian. The public arena has regressed to the ways of old Roman days and their Emperor’s who thought themselves to be God. To find your own answers, pray, get in the spirit and ask God to show you the deeper meaning of His word.
One must understand that, in any discussion about “sin” or “sins”, one must see them as two seperate things. Sin is the nature of Man. Contrary to popular (and post-modern) thought, we are not “basically good and perfectable”. We are fallen, broken, self-centered and opposing what is good. That doesn’t mean that we will rape, pillage, and plunder. It just means that we need a good reason not to. We all suffer from that spiriyual “disease” and offend even our own conscience sometimes and must deal with those consequences. That leads to the second notion; our sins. These are what springs from our Sin Nature. they are the accumulated list of disobediences, inattentions to others, and downright ugly attitudes that we sometimes sprout. Accountability can keep them to a minimum but cannot erradicate them. What can erradicate that list of offensed that we have committed is the actions of Jesus Christ on the cross. That we are guilty is unequivical. That we deserve judgement is sure. Christ takes the punishment for our sins to the cross with Him and there they are nailed to it in His body. The nature part is answered by an experience that all Christians should have. It is the infilling of the Holy Spirit. To be considered a Christian, one MUST have His Spirit living inside you. If you do not have it, you are not a Christian no matter what you call yourself. If you are not sure that the Spirit of the LORD OF THE UNIVERSE, CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH living inside you, you certainly do not. Thankfully, it is a simple affair of asking God, in faith and it is done. This is how our natures are dealt with. The power of God’s Spirit gives us the answer to the question “What is Good.” and then gives us the power to follow through and DO what is good. God has provided an answer to our “Sin” with His Spirit and our “sins”, all of which are equally offensive to His holiness, through Christ. It is a complete package. We no longer have an excuse.

I agree with both comments so far. The basic question is does God see different degrees in sin. Yes in accordance to Math 12:31-32 and Mark 3:28-20 summerized states all sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven except for the blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. Other then that God does not see any difference in the sins of man. There are some that God hates more that others but they are all sin according to His Word. Man has geven them different levels to make man feel better then each other, I do not commit murder, I only tell lies. Therefore I am better that one who commits murder. God says no your not.

I am unsure sometimes why this question is even asked. First John makes a distinction between “having sinned” and “being without sin.” I think this is useful, as it underscores the differences between our natural propensity towards sinning ( and self-centeredness, that is , the desire to live apart from God), and individual “sins,” — and we all know what those are. So this all depends on precisely what the question is — is the question, “does everyone need salvation?” or is the question …”is there such as thing as seriousness of sinS.” The answer to the second question seems obvious to me from scripture ( “he who handed me over to you is guilty of the greater sin”), and also from what is plain to all creation. The depths of depravity are shockingly multiplied through repeated sinful behavior , and thus the power of such sin to increasingly grieve God must be the truth of the matter. To say that an average person has sinned as horribly as, say, Joseph Stalin, is ridiculous. Do both Stalin and the average Joe need the death of Christ on the cross to save them? Absolutely. Have both sinned as seriously as the other? NO, and to say that one’s little girl is as guilty as Stalin for not paying attention to her teacher is both ridiculous and, frankly, warped.
To know about sins worse than others( in order to stay away from them?) (No Sin!!) one must consider the consequences of sin.. Consider the seed of the word of God as it is sown 4 places (1) path: never alive (2) rocky soil fall away(die) offended when persecution arises (3) Riches Cares of this world Briars Choke the Word and Bears no fruit No Life. (4) And good soil That produces Fruit unto Eternal Life . ————-Being Offended can be sinful and costly. Being Caught up in the affairs of this World can be a deadly sin Whoever makes himself a friend of this world makes himself an Enemy of God..———The Bearing of the Life (fruit) God intended For His Sons There is Hope for the fruitful an Understanding——————————— consequences For some sin is known blasphemy of the Holy Spirit Has no forgiveness——— Luke warm “No Holiness” With out Holiness no man shall see God.———————Greed —Jud 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. —Jud 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; —Jud 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.———————- And then there is Unbelief and disobedience See Hebrews and Last I mention is———-Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, —Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. ——- May we repent and stay repented In all humility and agape LOVE——————————-Love, Yours in Christ; Wade Trombatore

In the first post I posted I posted anonymous to this page At the end of the post I signed my name Wade Trombatore Yes we all need work by the Holy Spirit! We have a way to go Most of us till we complete the course As Paul and many have finished the course “2nd Ti 4:7″ I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith: ————Some, not all who feel” once saved always saved” do not fight the good fight of faith. They think they don’t have to !! What I want to point out is in my first post I wrote “No Sin!!” I was not saying 1 sin and you are out of there “Damned” No, I was saying let there be no tolerance in choosing to sin. We as Christians need to be set apart to God. Righteousness unto holiness. We need to Grow ————-God bless His Children and Saints. Love: Wade Trombatore
