      bostjan64, the Mosaic law no longer applies. Galatians 3:23-25 "But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster."

  • Any sin that kills the relationship between God and the person. Catholics call this mortal sin. 1 John 5:16-17 - If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say that you should pray. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly. Catholics believe: Mortal sin is a grave infraction of the law of God that destroys the divine life in the soul of the sinner (sanctifying grace), constituting a turn away from God. For a sin to be mortal, three conditions must be present: grave matter, full knowledge of the evil of the act, and full consent of the will. Venial sin is a sin which does not destroy the divine life in the soul, as does mortal sin, though it diminishes and wounds it. Venial sin is the failure to observe necessary moderation, in lesser matters of the moral law, or in grave matters acting without full knowledge or complete consent. But continual venial sin can slowly but surely totally separate you from God, placing you into the state of mortal sin. For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 1854 and following: With love in Christ.
  • Harming others in His name!
  • God doesn't exist. I cannot answer your question truthfully in any other way.
  • All sin is sin to God. 1John 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer.
  • Apparently, all sins are equal. I don't remember the exact passage where it says that, but if I find some spare time I'll find it and put it in a comment. So yeah, eating shellfish and wearing a cotton/polyester blend is just as abominable as homosexuality. Christians should bear this in mind when they wear their cotton/poly pants whilst chastising the gays... :P
  • Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit You turn your back on God.
  • First of all, any religious question should be a sincere search for TRUTH. The worst sin must be to refuse to believe on Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Because he, Jesus Christ, is the only way you can come to God and have all and any of your sins forgiven! Now as for as one individual sin being worst than another. The traditional answer is that sin is sin and no different to God. However, the bible, God's Word gives us a different answer. IJohn 5:16 speaks of a "sin not unto death" and a "sin unto death" therefore ranking some sins worst than others. A scriptural search of God's dealing with man in biblical history also bears this out. For example in Genesis Chapters 18 and 19 we see God dealing with Abraham and the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. God knows the whole of mankind is sinful and wickedness is every where and in every city. So God's dealing with Abraham is to through him start a nation and through that nation (Israel) send his Son, Jesus to be the Savior of the world. God's mind is on working out this plan, but, Gen. 18:20 declares "The Lord said the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin(one in particular)is very grievous". And Gen. 19:4-11 reveal that sin to be homosexuality and it had consumed both cities. God himself burned both cities into the ground. A continual search of scripture will show it is true, one sin can be worst to God than another.
  • Say's in the bible that Blasphemy of the Holy Ghost is the one sin that is unforgivable, sure hope not, wouldn't think anything was unforgivable with the unconditional love of God.
  • all are same..none no one worse than other.lie is same as murder..but both can be forgiven...maybe the ones that are more personal TOWARD HIM..the 1st 4 Commandments?? but I can only say , the Bible says there is only 1 that HE will NOT forgive ,blasphemy of the Holy Spirit...for me, this is denying HIM and HIS POWER, which is the Holy Spirit..not recognizing it...Father and Holy Spirit are ONE

  • (Proverbs 6:16-19) There are six things that Jehovah does hate; yes, seven are things detestable to his soul: 17 lofty eyes, a false tongue, and hands that are shedding innocent blood, 18 a heart fabricating hurtful schemes, feet that are in a hurry to run to badness, 19 a false witness that launches forth lies, and anyone sending forth contentions among brothers.
  • as far as I know, the only unforgivable sin (according to the bible) is to use the name of God in vain. murder, rape and pillage can be forgiven, but dare you say a word in vain and it's off to hell with you .....
  • God has no eyes. He's an invisible spirit that lives only in your imagination.  
  • If God was the creator of all and those who commit sin (mankind) ... Then would God himself not be the greatest committer of sin by his creation and lack of force to control those he created and their sins ... Abortion is the greatest sin of all ... no crime is greater than preventing a life at its start by those who already enjoy a life of their own ... Peace.
  • dying in debt.
  • Original Question: "What sin is the worst in God's eyes? By The Sheep" my answer: gave you 2 pts i.e. 46 to 48pts in case that is what you seek: The worst thing you can do is Turn away from God i.eturning away from your prayer and daily life relationship with him. Previous answers 7,8,9,18 and 22 may be attempts to explain this but with different terms and or wording. A person does not have to worry about sin & going to false heaven or hell etc until after puberty and aborted babies go to heaven (see 2nd Samuel 12:23 if you agree King David went to heaven). Also, remember old testament statement "remember not the sins of my youth". I believe this could be translated remember not the sins of my teen and early twenty years etc. Since many people as they get older learn to avoid from experience the bigger sins experimented with as young adults. Bible considers adulthood as after puberty takes place.

  • WHO is mentioned in Revelation? People? No. Religions controlled by 'certain' people? Yes. (Revelation 18:4-5) And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her, my people, if YOU do not want to share with her in her sins, and if YOU do not want to receive part of her plagues. 5 For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind. (Revelation 14:8) And another, a second angel, followed, saying: “She has fallen! Babylon the Great has fallen, she who made all the nations drink of the wine of the anger of her fornication!” Rev 18;9 Babylon the Great was remembered in the sight of God, to give her the cup of the wine of the anger of his wrath. (Revelation 17:5) And upon her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the harlots and of the disgusting things of the earth.” And this Babylon is described by her apparel... (Revelation 17:4) And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and was adorned with gold and precious stone and pearls and had in her hand a golden cup that was full of disgusting things and the unclean things of her fornication. WHAT religion dresses its people in those colours???? Purple, Scarlet, Gold... I rest my case.

  • According to the Bible, denial of the Holy Ghost is the only unforgivable sin after you've been blessed with the gift of the Holy Ghost and you know it's real and then you deny it that's denial of the Holy Ghost. But other than that all sin is the same in God's eyes.

  • Rejecting God as in not worshipping God is the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and the worst sin. there was an instance where the unbelievers accused Christ of casting out the devil by the devil, rejecting Christ, Christ said them they are blaspheming the Holy Spirit, as in that rejecting God by rejecting Christ, a sinfull state of beeing that will not be forgiven, except someone might quit that sin, else there would be nobody who would be saved.

  • It would have to possession of the scriptures and disobeying them... Murder is very bad but can be rectified in the Jehovah replacing that life lost...but disobedience?,,,and then spouting that you are doing God's will ???] Matthew 28; 19,20....the whole RCC is condemned...AS " Babylon the Great". plus all the other religions, eastern and western, not being obedient.
  • All sin declared by the Lord God is the same He does not grade on a sliding scale. With that said many sins the church and man say are sins are not sins in the Bible, they are man made man declared sins. Man started the "sin principle". Churches declared many things sin so they could "charge" indulgence to those the church said had sinned to make money for the church. If the Lord God did not declare something a sin it is not a sin. It is impossible to violate a law that does not exist. Learn what the Lord God declared a sin in His book the Bible.

    • Thinker
      Do you know the original definition of adultery as given in the Bible or do you only know today's meaning? Does adultery always mean intercourse? Without this knowledge how can you state adultery is the worst sin? Please read my comment just above yours.

      I only recently learned this. The Biblical definition of adultery is, 'a woman who breaks wedlock' See Strong's H5003 for proof.

  • All sin leads to death. However, we can be saved from sin and death through the ransom sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:12,6:23). The Bible does refer to a sin that “will not be forgiven” - Matthew 12:31, Luke 12:10.
  • Every single sin is equal to every other (James 2:10), except betraying Jesus to the Romans (John 19:11), blasphemy (Matthew 12:31), murder (I John 3:15) or debauchery (Galatians 5:19), those are unforgivable, except they are all forgivable, except blasphemy (Mark 3:28-29), even blasphemy (2 Peter 3:9, John 3:18). Confused yet?
    • Texasescimo
      I don't see the confusion. James 2:10 was in reference to the Mosaic Law Covenant... ... .. (James 2:10) For if anyone obeys all the Law but makes a false step in one point, he has become an offender against all of it. (John 19:11) Jesus answered him: ?You would have no authority over me at all unless it had been granted to you from above. This is why the man who handed me over to you has greater sin.? (Matthew 12:31) ?For this reason I say to you, every sort of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven. (1 John 3:15) Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has everlasting life remaining in him. (Galatians 5:19) Now the works of the flesh are plainly seen, and they are sexual immorality, uncleanness, brazen conduct, (Mark 3:28, 29) Truly I say to you that all things will be forgiven the sons of men, no matter what sins they commit and what blasphemies they speak. 29 But whoever blasphemes against the holy spirit has no forgiveness forever but is guilty of everlasting sin.? (2 Peter 3:9) Jehovah is not slow concerning his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with you because he does not desire anyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance. (John 3:18) Whoever exercises faith in him is not to be judged. Whoever does not exercise faith has been judged already, because he has not exercised faith in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
    • bostjan64
      The confusion stems from the statements you quoted. Is murder forgivable or not? Blasphemy? ... You have some passages saying that all kinds of blasphemy are forgivable, and then, right after, saying blasphemy is not forgivable in some instances, then, much later, that no instances of blasphemy are forgivable, then, it's forgivable again...
    • Jenny The Great ⭐
      Hello bostjan64, thanks for ringing the bell up above. Quote: "then, it's forgivable again..." You and Tex have to identify which type of blasphemy are ya referring to. Blasphemy refers to sin, but the Bible also speaks of the unforgivable sin. How can the unforgivable sin be forgiven? Chapter and verse please!
  • I'd say blasphemy of the Holy Spirit as there is no forgiveness.
  • Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the unforgivable sin. (Mark 3:28-30)
  • Blasphemy against the holy spirit. Interesting article: They Sinned Against the Spirit 7 What sins are not forgiven? To answer this question, let us consider some Biblical examples. This should prove comforting to us if we are repentant but are still sorely distressed over our serious errors. We will see that it is not so much a matter of what kind of sin a person has committed; rather, it is the motive, the heart condition, and the degree of willfulness involved that determines whether a sin is forgivable or not. 8 First-century Jewish religious leaders who maliciously opposed Jesus Christ were sinning against the holy spirit. They saw God’s spirit at work in Jesus as he performed miracles that honored Jehovah. Yet, these enemies of Christ attributed this power to Satan the Devil. According to Jesus, those who thus blasphemed against God’s holy spirit were thereby committing a sin that would not be forgiven in the present “system of things nor in that to come.”—Matthew 12:22-32. 9 Blasphemy is defamatory, injurious, or abusive speech. Since the holy spirit has God as its Source, saying things against his spirit is the same as speaking against Jehovah. Unrepentantly resorting to speech of that kind is unforgivable. Jesus’ words about such sin show that Jesus is referring to those who willfully oppose the operation of God’s holy spirit. Because Jehovah’s spirit was at work in Jesus but his opposers ascribed this power to the Devil, they sinfully blasphemed against the spirit. Hence, Jesus declared: “Whoever blasphemes against the holy spirit has no forgiveness forever, but is guilty of everlasting sin.”—Mark 3:20-29. 10 Consider also the case of Judas Iscariot. He pursued a dishonest course, stealing from the money box entrusted to his care. (John 12:5, 6) Judas later went to the Jewish rulers and arranged to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. Yes, Judas felt remorse after the betrayal, but he never repented of his deliberate sin. Consequently, Judas is not worthy of a resurrection. Jesus therefore called him “the son of destruction.”—John 17:12; Matthew 26:14-16. What is the unforgivable sin against the holy spirit that Jesus spoke about?
  • When people resists Him unto death.
  • LYING SATAN TOLD THE VERY FIRST LIE... He told Eve that if she disobeyed [ ate of the fruit of the tree of good and bad ] she would NOT die. (Genesis 2:16, 17) Jehovah God also gave this command to the man:
  • God does not have pet sins. He hates all sin the same..yet blasphemy of the holy spiritl is unforgivable..
  • Abusing and murdering innocent children in any way is the most evil sin I can think of!
  • *** Since Jesus was God’s Son and direct representative, the things spoken against him may also properly be defined as blasphemy. (Lu 22:65) So, too, since the holy spirit or active force emanates from God and is intimately connected with God’s person, Jesus could speak of “blasphemy against the spirit.” This is stated to be the UNFORGIVABLE SIN. (Mt 12:31; Mr 3:28, 29; Lu 12:10) Blasphemy is shown to originate within one’s heart (Mt 15:19; Mr 7:21, 22); hence the heart condition, manifest in the willfulness involved, must relate to such blasphemy against the spirit. The incident that led to Jesus’ statement concerning the unpardonableness of such sin demonstrates that it refers to opposing the operation of God’s spirit. This would not be because of deception, human weakness, or imperfection; but the opposition would be willful and deliberate. The Pharisees clearly saw God’s spirit at work in Jesus to accomplish good, yet for selfish reasons they attributed this power to Beelzebub, Satan the Devil, thereby blaspheming God’s holy spirit.—Mt 12:22-32; compare Heb 6:4-6; 10:26, 27.
  • This is a great question... While it is true that all sin is still sin, Matthew 12:31 tells us, “For this reason I say to you, every sort of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven. blasphemy” Refers to defamatory, injurious, or abusive speech against God or against sacred things. Since holy spirit emanates from God himself, willfully opposing or denying its operation amounted to blasphemy against God. As shown at Mt 12:24, 28, Jewish religious leaders saw God’s spirit at work in Jesus as he performed miracles; yet, they attributed this power to Satan the Devil.
