When in reality all sin is equally disobedience to jehovah and his son?

Therefore all who commit any sin, no matter how tiny it may seem to them, are equally guilty in the eyes of God and Christ, and equally in need of repentance and forgiveness.

Do we tend to single out one group to take attention away from our own sins and weaknesses?

I can think of no other reason.

Are all sins equal in Jehovah's eyes?

Well the price for sin, all sin is the same, death, so yes.

Howver help is at hand for those who recognise their need for it.

That must be who people like Hitler, Mao, Stalin, etc. learned their skills, from Jehovah.

Exactly.
The corollary of such rationale is that murder in itself is not wrong, but its ilicitude has to do with who practices it.

If Hitler murders 6 000 000 Jews, he's a raving mad mass murderer.
If Jehovah murders 3 500 000 000, God is love.

This is insanity.

This moral duplicity is what inspired Christopher Hitchens to say that religion makes otherwise decent people say and do indecent things. A shining example of that is what MCB drivels on about endlessly like a vending machine.

Howver help is at hand for those who recognise their need for it.

Members of a paedophile-harbouring cult such as the Jehovah's Witnesses, they're the ones who need help.
And it can't come soon enough.

Nobody is singling out homosexuals. Nobody is saying their sin is greater than any other sin. This (homosexuality) is an issue that has been refueled by recent events in society, this is why it is being discussed so often.

And yes, according to Romans 6:23, all sin is equal in the eyes of God. The price of all sin is death.

Christians show love and compassion to homosexuals. The Bible teaches us to "love thy neighbor." (This includes homosexuals.) No true Christian will not show love toward sinners, after all, we are sinners too.

And that is one of the several reasons why Christianity is immoral. Because circa Armageddon, supposedly, an unrepentant thief of ripe apples will be destroyed, a murderer will be destroyed, a kind loving atheist who pays taxes and gives to charity will be destroyed, but, lo and behold, a serial paedophile who accepts Christ and repents on his death bed 2 seconds before he dies, then the he gets saved.

Some justice.
Proportionality is one of the key principles involved in justice, yet one that evidently the supposedly morally perfect Creator of the Universe can dispense with.

Why ask a question if you already know what the truth is?
They say they want to save people from hell, but I see them trying to save people with hell. They deny science when on a computer. They say the bible is metaphors for some parts and not others, and follow some parts and not others. They believe their culture more than their bible they supposedly follow, and will deny any contradictions of the bible. Then say we are the dishonest ones? Since we don't believe in a deity which is equally as convincing as any other then god made the devil knowingly?

Then again, why single out any church for that matter, they are all guilty in the eyes of common decency.

Exactly. What homosexuals are doing with their life is wrong and against God's intentions for human beings. I was simply adding on to your original statement.

Actually, no, Biblically speaking, our neighbor is our fellow covenant keeper (i.e., our fellow Christians), not sodomites. Lev 19:18.

Actually, no, some of us are reborn, but no, God only commands man to execute certain criminals. Sodomites are part of that group, thieves are not.

They regurgitate dogma about homosexuality without knowing anything about homosexuality. Their pontificating is ignored by intelligent people.

Okay, perhaps you are right. But God does love everyone (as stated in John 3:16), thus we should love everyone, as well.

Do we tend to single out one group to take attention away from our own sins and weaknesses?

I can think of no other reason.

Are all sins equal in Jehovah's eyes?

Well the price for sin, all sin is the same, death, so yes.

Howver help is at hand for those who recognise their need for it.
Nobody is singling out homosexuals. Nobody is saying their sin is greater than any other sin. This (homosexuality) is an issue that has been refueled by recent events in society, this is why it is being discussed so often.
Those events would involve truth, decency and love, concepts little understood by some theists.
Christians show love and compassion to homosexuals. The Bible teaches us to "love thy neighbor." (This includes homosexuals.) No true Christian will not show love toward sinners, after all, we are sinners too.

Actually, no, Biblically speaking, our neighbor is our fellow covenant keeper (i.e., our fellow Christians), not sodomites. Lev 19:18.
Okay, perhaps you are right. But God does love everyone (as stated in John 3:16), thus we should love everyone, as well.

John 3:16 DOES NOT say God loves everyone. To the contrary, God is clear that He hates Esau (Romans 9:13) and the workers of iniquity (Ps 5:5). In fact, God hate sodomites so much that He personally executed two whole cities of them and will burn them forever in Hell.

Please read this article: http://www.gotquestions.org...

(You don't have to agree with most of what the ministry says, I don't agree with everyone they say either; however, their article on this subject is pretty good.)

Bottom line: God does love everyone, and His loves is clearly displayed in the Bible.

I give you Scripture where God Himself says He does not love everyone. You give me some article written by a group you say is fallible and you choose to reject the Word of God. On that note, I am done with this dude.

Actually some bronze age goatshagger claims that god said that, so you are relying on the word of man.

Very true, but that doesn't mean we should accept what they do.
Exactly. What homosexuals are doing with their life is wrong and against God's intentions for human beings. I was simply adding on to your original statement.

OK, sorry if misunderstood.
