Ron, you mention in your testimony of faith[/url:2gl1yblj] that James 2:10-11 proved to you that the notion of venial sins is ridiculous.
[quote:2gl1yblj]For whoever keeps the whole law, but falls short in one particular, has become guilty in respect to all of it. For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not kill.” Even if you do not commit adultery but kill, you have become a transgressor of the law.[/quote:2gl1yblj]
I guess what I find strange here is that you are quoting a passage about observing the law…hmmm…. Why does the law even matter if you are already saved?
Also, 1 John 5:17 tells us that all wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly. Hmmm…sure sounds like there’s different levels of sins. Sounds just like mortal (deathly) and venial (not as serious) sins! Interesting….
