Perhaps I should clarify, it occured to me in God's word that he says, that no sin is greater than another, so would that mean that lying about your homework is just as bad as bombing Pearl Harbor? They say sin is the same, but some have greater consequences, and I believe that, but there's another side to it. Does that mean that bombing Pearl Harbor is just as innocent as telling a lie? It's the same really, only measuring up to different sides, posotive and negative. If a lie is as BAD as a bombing and a bombing is as GOOD as a lie, how can we measure our sin. Some say it is imeasurable. But God measures it doesn't he. Everyone's a sinner, therefore we all deserve Hell. Sin is equal. God himself says so. So then why does he kill Saphira and her husband for a small lie, and let others' lies go unpunished? Why does he destroy Sodom and Gomorah when our country is just as sinful. Grace? or is it mercy? He also says that to any who make another turn away he will punish in the end far worse than any other. How can we find a balance between what's a consequence of sin, what's a punishment, and whaat's not? The amount of people it affects?
One day a man killed a woman down the street. Her husband found out and turned away from God and his children. His wo kids, a girl and a boy felt uncared for. The boy commited suicide and the girl ran away. The husband of the dead wife was even more mad and killed the man who killed his wife. This man also had a wife and one child. The wife was very angry and shot herself in the skull, the child, watching his mom do this, lived with his uncle and was horrified at what he'd seen, The girl who ran away eventually died of hunger, and the boy's uncle died. The boy, when he grew up, killed the man who killed his father and started killing for the fun of it. Those innocent people also were angry and sad and 28 of the commited suicide, 13 of them starved from running away(mostly kids), and the rest lived a bitter life ful of discouraging others.
So, did the man who started it all by killing the man's wife as guilty, more guilty, or less guilty than the man whose wife he had killed?
