What Sins Destroy?



I have noticed a strange fact in Sunday church goers / modern pastors and their view of sin. American Christianity has a way of focusing on various so called big sins like homosexuality and mind altering drugs as THE really bad sins that will destroy you or harm your walk with God. While those are sins indeed, they are in NO WAY sins that God has commanded are worse then others. If you read Prov 6 and the 7 sins that God hates, you will NOT find those are listed.

Prov 6
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
God's Word makes it clear all sin is harmful and destructive before a Holy God. From sodomy and the destruction of whole towns because of it Genesis 19, to laziness 2 thess 3 and even "one lie" that killed a couple in Acts 5.
Paul tells us in Gal 5:9 
a little sin affects much
Gal 5 says:
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
What I have found in my daily experience in ministry trying to help others caught in sin is that rarely is it the so called big sins that destroy or start to unravel peoples lives, relationships, bodies and even their very faith. Often it is the sins people consider small or minor such as:
lying, bad doctrine, jealousy, carnality ( music , movies, sports media ) pride, unbiblical dress, envy, rebellious heart, lust, mysticism, covetousness and the like affecting most people in their daily lives.
Question:
If the so called BIG sins are the really dangerous ones... why do we see so many people ship wreck their lives, marriage and faith on the sins, most people think do not matter? Could it be ALL sin is to be avoided, just as the Holy bible warns? We say yes and so we call ourselves and others to repent of all sins... lest they be found guilty of it before a angry Holy God.

Something to consider?

Good news... ( see the gospel link below )
Christ indeed made the way for those who obey Him Heb 5:9

See our bible resources below and let me know how I can help you in the faith?
