At least there seems to be some hierarchy to sins.

It’s an awful thing, surely, to covet thy neighbor’s ass...

But how many of us here on this very site are guilty of willfully and joyously violating Commandment ONE?

How open is the First Commandmant to interpretation? How flexible and changeable is the Covenant? What happened at Sinai? How shall we divide the godhead? What does it mean to read that over and over again the Lord defines himself as ONE? With what measure of grace can we bow to the Triune? How many gods shall we worship, we who (of course) alone hold the the keys to the kingdom?

These are questions not worth asking.

The important thing is to let those buggers know they are going to Hell.

In any case, many of the posters here are dead right. A sin is a sin, and there IS such a thing as right and wrong. We asked to know of it when we ate - not an apple - but “From the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil,” and He gave us the skinny some small time later.

So it is written, so I believe.
