Although there are lesser and greater sins
They are all the unGodly type
Because just as fruit is always fruit Whether on the vine or ripe
Sin is always sin and in The Book
Sin cannot be classified
As anything else but a broken
Commandment in our God's eyes
Yet I believe there are degrees
In the way God's viewing sin...
Because He can see into the heart...
Sees the thoughts, intents of men.
The "I will do this" is a First Degree
That has been thought of and been planned...
Therefore God sees this as delibertly
Defying a direct command.
So Second Degree may be defined
As just walking into the wrong.
It wasn't planned yet it's still sin
So God's judgement must go on.
Thou shalt not means Thou shalt not
And God's children must expect
A form of discipline from Him...
God will not leave sin unchecked.
And because God is a Holy God
He will not ever tolerate
Sin in any form or shape
To enter Heaven's Gate.
But the Good News for Believers
Is the Lord Jesus' sacrifice ...
It covers each and every sin
But only His Blood will surfice!
It's said confession's good for the soul...
That it sets the mind at ease.
So we must confess our sins to God...
He's the One that we must appease.
We must repent and sin no more
As He bid one caught in adultery.
Or we won't win other souls to Christ
Should we keep sinning delibertly .
But there is no sin God won't forgive
Or none He will recall.
When Christ Jesus hung upon that Cross...
He died for them all.

Matthew 12:35-37 35 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.36 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
James 4:17 Therefore, anyone who knows what is right but fails to do it is guilty of sin.
2 Peter 2:21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than to have known it and turned away from the holy commandment passed on to them.
John 8:10-11 Jesus stood up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more."
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteouswill not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts,  nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.
Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, impurity, licentiousness,  idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit,  envy, drunkenness , carousing, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Ephesians 5:3-6 But fornication and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is fitting among saints .  Let there be no filthiness, nor silly talk, nor levity, which are not fitting; but instead let there be thanksgiving.  Be sure of this, that no fornicator or impure man, or one who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  Let no one deceive you with empty words, for it is because of these things that the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
