    No. Some just have more severe consequences for ourselves and others.

      I think people often confuse breaking the laws of man with sin.

        I think sin is sin, regardless. But the damage it does to ourselves and others can vary greatly.

          No

          there is different degrees of punishment

          Luk 12:47 And that servant who knew his master's will but did not get ready or act according to his will, will receive a severe beating.
          Luk 12:48 But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.

            James 2:10
            For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

              Is not sin the breaking of God's law?

              1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
              Psalm 1[/COLOR] and Job 28:28

              Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

              Joh 4:23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.

                There was sin in the world before the law, but you are right that the law points out sin.

                Romans 5:13 for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

                  Nope.

                  It's not even in the Bible.

                    Seems that if one esteem any of the laws in the slightest way one is obliged to uphold all of them, flawlessly and perfect for one's righteousness and one is not under grace and being in Christ is not for one.

                    The conclusion is that the supposed 'smallest' sin is just as good or bad as any other.

                      In that sin is what separates us from God, I would say yes. How God will judge our sins is beyond us for He alone knows our hearts and if they are in Yeshua.

                        Let's face it. God covered all the bases. We need a Saviour.


                        Romans 14:23
                        And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

                        James 4:17
                        Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

                          I'd rather have someone steal a dollar from me than murder me.

                            The Bible talks about motes (specs of dust) and planks.
                            Both need to be removed and the removal process is the same.
                            Sins are of different sizes, but pride in being a lesser sinner is ridiculous.
                            But today I hear of some sins being 'unpardonable'.
                            Once properly with God, to then walking away is 'insane', and one then cannot come back, apparently.
                            Or to allow oneself to become a compulsive nurser of your own grudges is also a problem, or so I'm told.
                            And also wilful or careless negligence whilst claiming to be of God/Christ is also pretty bad.
                            Also one cannot serve 2 masters, so if one finds oneself in this situation (too often in 2-minds about important matters -- see 'double minded' in 'James') and fails to take remedial action, then this is pretty un-Christian too !!
                            Also mentioned was the sin of being affectatious with silly pretentions / pretentiousness.
                            Also mentioned was sinning wilfully and then staying in that sin.
                            Also mentioned was rejecting people for reasons that are uncharitable / un-Christian.
                            Also mentioned was congregation leaders who are corrupted in faith and the dangers of following such 'gurus', instead of God through Christ.
                            So, be very careful about over-trusting a 'guru' ('local flock leader') without verifying all of your understandings through study guided by the Holy Spirit supported through sincere and contrite prayer.
                            Do not rest on your own understanding, but don't rest on the understandings of others either, unless that other is Jesus !!

                              I don't understand all of this talk of Sin. All of us know that Jesus paid our sin debt with his blood on the Cross. So what is all this talk about sin?
