Now you sound reasonable.

However, Christianity, as I understand it, does indeed take this position.

We are all equally guilty before the eyes of the Lord.

I cannot speak for all Christians, but I can inform you of my own Christian beliefs. I do not believe that stealing anything is anywhere near as bad as rape or murder.

That's what YOU believe. I am talking about what the Christian god believes. Or if you prefer, what Christians believe God believes.

Sin is sin to the Christian god. We are all bound for hell but for the sacrifice of his son. All of us. No matter what we've done. Not one man or woman among us is worthy to stand before him on judgment day. Whether you're a war criminal or just a guy who sometimes daydreams about having sex with his friend's wife. It's all the same to God. It all buys you an eternity of unspeakable, unfathomable, and endless torture. It's like nothing you can imagine, the pain God will inflict on you. There is nothing you can do to avoid it, nothing whatsoever, except turn to Christ.

Sin is sin. And you are either 100% free of it, or you're not.

There are only two kinds of people. Christ, and sinners. And that's it.
