Qn. Are there bigger sins and smaller sins, and if there are, Will a murderer and an abuser or who commit adultery, get the same punishment? are all sins equal?
Ans: Sin is a sin, whether it’s big or small, it’s all wrong, the Bible says.
James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law”
See there? So whoever commits a sin, great or small, will be punished, but the penalties will vary , because The Lord Jesus also said that the one who killed with the sword would also be killed with the sword, whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. The punishment of the devil cannot be the same as the punishment of man. The Bible explains in the Book of Luke..
Luke 12:47 ” And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more”
So the plagues will vary according to the deeds of the man he did while he was here on earth, just as the rewards will differ from man to man in heaven as they suffered in serving the Lord, and also in hell the punishments will vary according to the sins man committed in the world. So we are not to weigh sin in any way, the solution is to stay away from it because whether it is big or small, its wages is DEATH, (Romans 6:23).
God bless you.
