Just a thought: How can we say that a sin is “worse” or “less severe” when anything going against God’s will is a sin? Furthermore, what is even the criteria for a “really bad” sin? In your opinion, it may be committing suicide, but it my opinion, a “really bad” sin might be murder. So, therefore, rating sin based on “level of severity” is very illogical, and really, if my “little sin” isn’t as bad as your “severe sin”, it’s still sin, isn’t it?
