The Large Cost of the Smallest Sins

There is no small sin, because there is no small God.  God is infinite, eternal, and unchanging.  Sin is a direct rebellion against this God deserving infinite, eternal, and unchanging punishment.  Sin is only judged rightly when it is judged by God and from God’s perspective.
