Aree all sins Equal in the Eyes of God?!
My Protestant friend wants to know "Are all sins equal in the eyes of God?"
They are (Jas2:10-11) !
They are not (Mat10:15; Mat12:31; 1Co6:18; 1Jn5:16) !!
Is there a cotradiction? not a bit, as it is just an ostensible discrepancy !!!
Sins are equal in the final destiny they lad to: Eternal death.
They are not equal as to how difficult it is to repent from. how harmful consequences they leave, how more punishment they deserve.
(discussion raised -- abridged)
I thought it more complex than that!
Unless you think that I make out sins to be of a hierarchical nature, which I do not, then I can find where we agree but I fail to spot where we disagree! (Complexities arise from a preassumption that it is there as it takes sometihng mystical or sophisticated to explain. However, it is as simple as the context of the scriputres quoted above speak.)
