A Puritan Catechism: Question 66

Q. Are all transgressions of the law equally heinous?

A. Some sins in themselves, and by reason of various aggravations, are more heinous in the sight of God than others (Jn. 19:11; 1 Jn. 5:16).

Hmmm... that's a noodle-scratcher. All sin condemns, but some sins are more heinous than others. Isn't heinous a great word?

Heinous is a great word!

This idea is something that I've not completely grasped. Growing up as a generic evangelical, I always assumed that sin was sin in the eyes of God.
