The Greatest Sin

Please read this article. I would have to agree that the greatest sin is not believing in Christ, that this sin will surely send your soul to hell! I’ve debated with my family and friends about ranking sin, putting sin in a descending or ascending order of offense. Is adultery worse than murder? Is lying a greater sin than the others outlined in the 10 commandments? What about idolatry? The Bible says that Christ will forgive us for all of our sins when we repent. He knows that we are subject to the temptations of this flesh and that since we are not perfect, only Jesus is and will ever be, we are bound to make mistakes and cry out to him for forgiveness. So then is there a difference between sin and transgression? Should we bother to care about the sins that we knowingly commit versus those we commit by accident? Either way we need to cry out to Jesus to ask for forgiveness. He is always ready to forgive us when we ask. Our God is so merciful. But please do not take His mercy for granted or as a sign of weakness. This is what I know to be true about God: The Lord delights in lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness.

Sin will leave you torn in so many ways, it has a haunting affect from which you can’t escape. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of Christ is everlasting life. Jesus said that if you love him, you will keep His commandments. He asks us not to commit adultery, murder, lie, or have any idols before him. If you are doing any one of these, guess what? God is not pleased. Christ is looking for a church without a spot or wrinkle. Will you FULLY trust him?
