    I am looking for a verse in the New Testament that explains that all sin is sin and equal in the eyes of the Lord. Can you help me?

    The Scripture that comes to mind is in James 2:10, "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." And when I think of "the Law", I read it as Jesus' amplification to what was earlier given by God to Moses & to Israel: the full, proper meaning of the Law (e.g. Matthew 5:21-32).

    So James is stating that even if one could truly keep all of God's Laws, but failed to do so in one small point, it is regarded as being guilty of the whole Law. And this was so, because God's Laws, by design, was to show that man is a sinner & by committing even one sin, his heart is affected & corrupted with the virus of sin that permeates throughout his being, affecting every part of him.

    Roman's 6:23a, for the wages of sin is death. The penalty for a "small" or a "large" sin is the same. The conclusion, death is the penalty, validates the thesis. All sin is equal.
