Sunday Scriptures — A Sin is a Sin is a Sin

By Sandy Kirby Quandt

If anyone can show me where, in the Bible, it says there are big sins, and little sins, I’d like to know. Looking at the world of some churches, it would appear that were the case.

You know…your sin of theft is bigger than my sin of gossip. Your sin of murder is bigger than my sin of lying. Your sin of adultery is bigger than my sin of holding a grudge.

Your sin is bigger…

What I have found in the scriptures, is that anyone who breaks even one of God’s laws or commands — yes, gossip is against God’s will — is just as guilty as the vilest offender we could ever imagine. Kind of sobering, wouldn’t you agree?

We are all sinners. Saved by the mighty grace of a loving God who sent his son, Jesus, into this world, to save sinners like me. Like you.

There are no big sins, little sins in God’s book. Please. Let’s stop acting like there are. A sin is a sin, is a sin, is a sin…forgiven through the saving blood of Christ, when we come to him in full repentance, and fall on his mercy and love.

What are your thoughts on the subject?

And the person who keeps every law of God but makes one little slip is just as guilty as the person who has broken every law there is. James 2:10 (TLB)

I wish you well.
