Love is the greatest commandment. The cure for jealousy is divine love. Does this make jealousy the greatest sin? Note: the results of jealousy are; theft, hatred, anger, malice, and ultimately murder. You can see how jealousy led Cain to kill his brother, Abel. Genesis 4: 4-8

One of them.The unforgivable sin is not believing in Jesus Christ the risen Son of God.

Lust, greed and sloth are huge in our generations right now. If we get these under control we might have a chance.

Pro 16:5  Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished

 

Pro 8:13  The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil; I hate pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the wicked mouth.

 

Pro 6:16  These six Jehovah hates; yea, seven are hateful to his soul:
Pro 6:17  a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
Pro 6:18  a heart that plots wicked plans, feet hurrying to run to evil,
Pro 6:19  a false witness who speaks lies, and he who causes fighting among brothers.

All sin is equal, all lead to spiritual death. I do believe that there are different degrees of punishment for the lost, though, just as there are different rewards (crowns) for the redeemed.

Not all sins are equal otherwise we wouldn't have been told of the unforgivable sin.

Pride may be the worst as it is Satan's original pride that caused all his mess in the first place.

Yes,I believe that there is different degrees of punishment for the lost as well.I have heard a couple of sermons on that and it makes alot of sense.I do not think that not believing in Jesus Christ is equal to the other sins.That sin can not be forgiven.Enlighten me on that if you have a different opinion.I always love your posts and I want to see what you have to say.

The first and greatest command is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Sin is defined by what is not of faith, not out of trusting in God alone. Idolatry and blasphemy are sins directed squarely at God Himself. I would surmise that sins violating the greatest command lead to the violations of the second, the "golden rule". Blaspheming the Holy Spirit is labeled as unforgivable, as has been also mentioned.....VERY BAD!!! 

Rejecting Christ is related to the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit was sent by Jesus Christ to draw all men to Him, to convince the world of sin, righteousness, and the judgement to come. If one rejects the workings of the Holy Spirit by blaspheming Him, then you cut off your only way to come to Christ and His forgiveness. I should dare say no sin carries a greater consequence than this!
