That is one of the most pernicious doctrines of Satan and his followers.I'm sure that the student who cheats on a spelling test would not agreethat his sin was the same as one who cheated on a final exam for his orher degree, or that he should be punished like the person who commits murder.
It is true that God can not look upon unrepentant sin with the leastdegree of allowance but no where does it say that God look upon all sinequally. However, Christ said,
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest (sic) have no power [at all] againstme, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered meunto thee hath the greater sin.
Professional Faith Merchants and Religionists love tout and ravethat "man is a sinner" and that "man was born into sin." That is to somedegree true. Only one man was without sin. It's like the old cliché,"The glass if half full." "So a man thinketh, so is he."
Man may sin because we aren't perfect but it is blasphemous to say manis worthless because of it. Christ came to earth and was crucified forthe sins of the world. To claim that man is a worthless sinner is to say,"Christ died in vain," that "Christ's mission was pointless."
I challenge the Professional Faith Merchants to stop dwelling on thepernicious dogmas that "man is a worthless sinner," accept the fact thatone can't breathe but what could be guilty of some sin, stop dwelling onthe sin and start dwelling on what you can do to improve the lives of youfellowman.
I say to all! Think of yourself as a worthless sinner and you will bebut think of yourself as someone desirous and capable of doing what's rightand that you will do!
