You know how we all think that certain sins are worse than others. Did you know that in God's eyes all sin is equal.

That means that:

You're Gay................I'm a Gossip.................We're Equal in God's Eyes

She Steals................He Lies......................They're Both Equal in God's Eyes

Murderer..................Adulterer....................Equal

Pedophile.................Drug Addict/Alcoholic........Equal

Greed.....................Lust/Jealousy................Equal


These things are all things that we put before Him which makes them idols or false gods. God's thing is that He wants to be first in our lives. He wants to be the main attraction in our lives. The things listed above are named in the Bible as things that God considers to be sin (there are many more) and they are all things he hates or considers to be an "abomination". He won't stand for anything taking first place in our lives, period.

But, as far as you and I go, I'm no better than you, and you're no better than me. We've all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and our very best efforts are as dirty rags to Him. We would have no hope whatsoever of ever being able to meet God's expectations of holiness, purity and sinlessness without Jesus Christ. He is the perfect, sinless, blemishless "lamb" of God who takes away the sins of the world. Once you allow Christ access to your whole heart, your whole body, your whole soul, your desire for sin becomes smaller and smaller and smaller as you allow His prsence in you to become bigger and bigger and bigger. I will not cast the first stone. You are my brother or sister. God loves us the same.
