No Difference

In the context of gravity of sin, there is no difference from a drunkard to a white liar, a sex addict to a gossiper. The difference comes in the gravity of consequence.

But since God views sin as sin, that means we are just as fallen as them. That means that like them we don’t meet the standards.

The only difference is this – By faith in the finished work of Christ we know we are forgiven and at the same time being sanctified.

So for those who don’t know Christ and who are swimming in their behavioral sin, have the compassion and reach out to them. Do not be offended and attack them by gossiping about them.

Remember Christ, when his offenders nailed Him on the cross He prayed this prayer to the Father…
Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing…
