No one asked Jesus, “Whose sin is greatest?” But we know the answer: someone else’s! Jesus said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man” (Mark 7:20-23 NKJV). Is morality what we don’t do? We don’t murder, but commit adultery? We don’t steal, but we covet? We’re not wicked, but are full of pride? No one’s sin is worse than ours, “because all sinned” (Romans 5:12 NKJV). Temptations are “common to man” (1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV), and so is sin! Jesus said: “preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:15-16 NKJV).
