Which best represents the problem with the comment?
Job later states that in his flesh; he shall see God ( Job 19:26).
In these passages; declarations of truth during unbearable suffering give a lesson for saints today to do the same. This also was the case when Christ was suffering before His glorious resurrection. Trust in God must override everything else; for He is faithful; even when we are not.
Just felt like I should say, thank you for your faithfulness to GOD's WORD & helping all of us, with those answers.
However, from God's perspective, all of mankind are sinners & culpable because of our thoughts, words or actions resulting from that sin nature within us. So whether the 'worst of sinners' as Hitler & those of his ilk, or 'least of sinners' as one doing a charitable work but for selfish, self-gain motives, all are seen as guilty before an Holy God.
We can think of Jesus' instruction on this in Luke 13:1-5 when He dealt with the gradation of sinners. Were those Galileans who were murdered by Pilate any greater as sinners than others who didn't suffer like them? Or, those who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them & killed them but sparing others living there in Jerusalem - were those who died more sinful than those who were spared? Jesus' answer to them was the same on both counts: "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Jesus' answer was that, 'to God any sin is sin, but it's repentance that makes the difference to God, & under the Cross, God grants us forgiveness & a new life on Earth & in Heaven, in exchange'.
So, as humans having empathy for others, we might grade sins according to their impact & suffering on others, but in God's Eyes, sin (any sin) is unacceptable & deserving of His Punishment ( Romans 6:20-23). But in Jesus there is hope for all.
Example if you would one time get drunk that's sin. But if you decide to continually get drunk now your out of
fellowship affect is much more constant and can lead to early death, while totally negating your fellowship with God.
This can be said for anything out of balance, so its best just endeavor not to because no matter what you will be
spiritually affected and infected so to speak. Also good luck with answer to prayer.

14:1-6 Job enlarges upon the condition of man, addressing himself also to God. Every man of Adam's fallen race is short-lived. All his show of beauty, happiness, and splendour falls before the stroke of sickness or death, as the flower before the scythe; or passes away like the shadow. How is it possible for a man's conduct to be sinless, when his heart is by nature unclean? Here is a clear proof that Job understood and believed the doctrine of original sin. He seems to have intended it as a plea, why the Lord should not deal with him according to his own works, but according to His mercy and grace. It is determined, in the counsel and decree of God, how long we shall live. Our times are in his hands, the powers of nature act under him; in him we live and move. And it is very useful to reflect seriously on the shortness and uncertainty of human life, and the fading nature of all earthly enjoyments. But it is still more important to look at the cause, and remedy of these evils. Until we are born of the Spirit, no spiritually good thing dwells in us, or can proceed from us. Even the little good in the regenerate is defiled with sin. We should therefore humble ourselves before God, and cast ourselves wholly on the mercy of God, through our Divine Surety. We should daily seek the renewing of the Holy Ghost, and look to heaven as the only place of perfect holiness and happiness.
Mishael: you can Google scriptures. Just type your scripture and type after it. Commentary.
That way you can read more than one.
"But God commanded his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." ( Romans 5:8).
"And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;" ( Ephesians 2:1).
He washed us clean with the blood of Lord Jesus.

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
