A friend of mine who describes himself as a Fundamentalist (it’s not prejorative to all non-Catholics, just non-Fundamentalist non-Catholics ) argued with me over lunch that all sin is equal in God’s eyes.

The way I see it, his belief was consistent…wrong, but consistent . Please give your thoughts.
God Bless, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
