Are all sins actually the same?
“All sin na sin (all sins are the same)”
The above statement is part of the reasons why we have many ritualists in our society today. Young boys now use their parents and wards for money and power rituals.
This is why people commit grievous crimes and give themselves pep talk. “After all, everybody dey sin.” “All sins are the same”.
Some say, “nobody be Saint.” “If you want to eat frog, eat big one” meaning that you should commit big sin if at all. You should commit big crime if you must commit crime.
Then you wonder how people rape and eventually kill their victims. You wonder how a person steals the monies meant for 10 generations without remorse.
For the avoidance of doubt, all sins are not the same.
Even though any sin will take one to hell, the consequences are very varied.
God does not see all sins as the same, neither does the devil.
This is why human ritual is not the same as animal ritual. This is why people who hold top positions in the underworld are those who dare to do what others see as extreme.
There are sins that changes the course of one’s destiny. Some affects future generations. There are sins that gives the devil legal right to anything that has one’s name on it, including unborn children.
This is why you see families where men die at a certain age range. This is why you see families where the women hardly get their marriages right. There are other families where they never attain financial breakthrough.
There are families where people go mad at the verge of success.
These are traceable to ancestral curses. Some are as a result of sins that were committed in the past, while some are as a result of decisions taken in the past with full understanding of the consequences.
Just as past evil can affect future generations, so also past good can affect future generations.
See what Apostle Paul said in Hebrews 7:9
“In addition, we might even say that these Levites—the ones who collect the tithe—paid a tithe to Melchizedek when their ancestor Abraham paid a tithe to him.”
So it is very demonic to sell the idea that all sins are the same. At best, it is the most naive way to think as a Christian.
While we must strive to avoid any kind of sin, we should be aware that consequences are different.
People say things like this because they see sin only as a crime against God. They forget that sin can open doors of spiritual attack in varied magnitude.
There are sins that may scratch the door to one’s life. Some will open the door. Some will bring down the door, while others will pull down the wall.
Ecclesiastes 10:8 “He who digs a pit will fall into it, And whoever breaks through a wall will be bitten by a serpent.”
2 Kings 10:30 “Nonetheless the Lord said to Jehu, “You have done well in following my instructions to destroy the family of Ahab. Therefore, your descendants will be kings of Israel down to the fourth generation.”
1 Corinthians 6:18 “Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.”
Matthew 27:24-25 “Pilate saw that he wasn’t getting anywhere and that a riot was developing. So he sent for a bowl of water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of this man’s blood. The responsibility is yours!”
“And all the people yelled back, “We will take responsibility for his death—we and our children!”
We all know how David in 2 Samuel 12, lost his son because of the sin he committed. Though he begged God, his prayers were not answered.
There are sins that will still affect you even after repentance and forgiveness.
This is endtime and the devil is using every means possible to deceive people.
Most importantly, Christians should always remind themselves and their family that Jesus Christ remains our standard. The Holy Bible remains our reference point.
Celebrities are not our standard and will never be. Trivializing sin is the way to perdition.
