Some people will say, "God sees all sin the same. One sin is not worse than the other." Those statements are actually not true. Unbelievers should take heart and know that God does not view all sin the same. The Bible indicates varying degrees of sin and varying degrees of punishment.
There is a sin that is greater in degree of wickedness; therefore, it deserves a greater punishment. The Bible states that the wages of sin is death. Romans 6:23 applies to all sin, whether in thought, word or deed.
God also raised the bar when He sent Jesus. Jesus made it very clear in the New Covenant when He said it wasn't just the outward sin that made a person guilty. Sin is an outward manifestation of what's really going on inside a person's heart. So it's not just the things you do that are sinful—it's what you store in your heart.
The question most want to know is, "Will our sin send us to hell?" The answer to that is it doesn't have to. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Because God loves us, He sent Jesus to die in our place for our sins and be raised to life in victory.
While it's not our sin that sends us to hell, a person will not enter heaven if they reject the only provision for our sins. Rejecting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross will condemn a person to hell. That is the one unforgivable sin. Jesus went to the cross to destroy the power of sin and eradicate it in our lives as Christians. People must choose Jesus to be found innocent of their sin.
