I accept, I will be arguing on behalf of all sins holding equal weight.
It is self-evident that raping a child is worse than stealing a toothpick.
I'd like to point out that I didn't start this debate. Someone who was staying at my house logged into my account and posted this debate while I was sleeping but I figured now that it's accepted I may as well continue it.
Lets start with some logical statements which I have created to justify Deontology:
1. Humans can be wrong.
2. Nature, nor the universe, nor the Christian God hold prejudices to moral actions(Jesus loves us all the same unconditionally and the only punished action is one of non-belief and not true morality).
3. If this is true then the only moral prejudice has been created by humans.
4. Since humans can be wrong and the only moral prejudice comes from humans, it is likely/possible that current human conceptions of morality are foolish and incorrect.
5. Therefore we cannot trust modern ethical systems.
This means that though rape is more punishable than stealing a toothpick, this is only because us foolish humans have deemed it so. It is idiotic for us to assume that we are at the height of human understanding. We cannot say whether or not your previous statement is true.
All actions which your soul deems immoral are equal because they have the same consequence. You are merely spitting in the face of God, your existence, and the gifts you have been given. Because of the indeterminacy of human judgement we cannot say that being punished for an action was wrong and since every sin is in essence simply spitting in the face of your existence then all sins are equally evil.
Jesus said in Matthew 12:31 that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the only sin that can't be forgiven:
This debate is called Christianity. Christians must accept this as proof that not all sins are equal, since blasphemy against the Holy Spirit can't be forgiven but all others can be.
Case closed, thanks for debating me on this topic.
Philosophy123 forfeited this round.
