Have you ever heard someone state that all sins are equal in God’s eyes?

This is true in exactly one way:

All sins, from stealing a paper clip to murdering a city, will have the effect of causing you to be separated from God and in need of a Savior.

But it is false in many ways:

Two kinds of sins might be different in –
– how much the sin damages you.
– how much it distances you from God.
– how much it draws you away to sin more.
– how much it hurts others.
– how far it removes you from God’s blessing.
