Although I can’t say I agree with Robert A. J. Gagnon entirely, I appreciate his logical approach and ultimate appeal to Scripture.
Interestingly enough, where I might differ in accepting one sin as being greater than another is somewhat explained when he says this:
Violations of greater commands are strong indications of a sick soul and of a life that either has never been led by the Spirit or is now turning away from being led by the Spirit.
It is really that some sins are worse or that certain sins are clearer indicators of a likely spiritual problem or distance from God?
An important discussion.
