Is there a difference in sins? Is one sin worse than another? If I stab my brother or sister with my words, doing damage that will scar them for life. Is that different than stabbing them with a knife?
If I steal their joy with my actions or words, is that different that stealing their wallet?
Just because I don’t “physically” take their life but I am emotionally taking it, is that not a sin, just like murder is a sin?
If I say I love them but I don’t, isn’t that a sin? It’s a lie, is it not? I mean, sure no one knows it…except God :)
Are our thoughts just as bad as our actions? Isn’t a thought an action?
If I think bad thoughts about you, judge you, complain about you in my head, is that not the same as doing it out loud?
Some people tell me no because I didn’t act, and therefore, I didn’t hurt anyone.
Didn’t I hurt God?
Just because I didn’t act on that thought does it make it any less of a sin in God’s eyes?
My brethren weren’t hurt by my sinful thoughts but God knew they were there, didn’t He?
Isn’t He listening to my every thought? Searching my heart, always?
Which brings me back to the question: Is there a difference in sins?
