Are all sins equal?

Q: Are all sins equal?
It doesn’t seem possible or fair. Am I missing something?

A: Only in the Old Testament, under the old law, were all sins essentially equal, because when you broke any part of the law … even the smallest part … you broke it all … and you were condemned as a result, with no hope of recovery … except for Jesus, the Messiah.

Under the new covenant, we operate under the grace of God, not by law.

Jesus is our judge, and he is capable of determining the seriousness of our infractions, without fail … and in a perfect way that the old law was completely incapable of doing.

So no, you’re not missing a thing. It’s the guys that fail to understand the importance of grace, and who read their Bibles lacking true discernment, who are missing something.
