If you feel guilty or not afterwards? Does motivation/intention count? What about ignorance? If you do not know, believe, or agree that something is a sin, is it no longer a sin?
I have heard blasphemy of Holy Spirit is when someone goes against something they know in their hearts is wrong.
I have also heard sin is a continuum. Although fornication is a sin, there is a difference between a romantic couple having sex versus prostitute soliciting sex.
There is difference between someone using foul language because something fell on their pinky toe. Ouch. Someone just using foul language in an everyday conversation.
I thought about it. Two people can steal, but for very different reasons. Some people cannot afford necessities of life. Some people simply steal for their thrill. There are teenagers who steal for to be cool or “bad.”
In the end, unfortunately, no matter what you think, sin hurts someone, maybe not the perpetrator.
I guess God will reward and punish us justly.
