All sins are not the same in their gravity. Christ himself makes this plain in the Gospel.

What Christ makes clear is that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. After all, that's why we need a Savior. While consequences of sin may vary, He hates all sin. It doesn't do us much good to be spiritual snobs (also a sin), because we are nothing without Him. We aren't saved by our "fewer" or "lesser" sins than the next guy. Heck, we aren't even saved by our church membership, heritage, or baptism. It's all about Jesus.

Would you be so kind as to provide the citation; chapter and verse.

Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the
Thessalonians, for they received the message with great
eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if
what Paul said was true.
