Default What is the worst sin one can commit?

My girlfriend and I had a discussion about the worst sin someone could make. I thought it was murder, but she said it says clearly in the bible what the worst sin is. I disagree with her. It seems murdering someone would be the worst sin of all. she pointed to scripture that she says justifies her opinion, but I am not sure if what she says is really true. I want to see what people say is the worst sin to commit and see if that is the same answer she gave me. So what is the worst sin of them all?

The absolutely worst sin is the sin against the Holy Spirit. It is unforgiveable. Matt 12: 31,32

Cheers,

Jim

btw...I said the first commandment because all other sin is a result of the first commandment first being broken.

The worst sin is committing the unpardonable sin as Jim 1999 said, which is NOT ACCEPTING JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR when the Holy Ghost lays it on your heart. All other sin will be forgiven.

Mat 12:31-32 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. (32) And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

All very good answers, but not the worst sin according to her. I think she is misinterpreting scripture.

That is absolutely correct. It is very strange, how man, in his sinful and flawed thinking, will put levels on sin. For example, in many of our churches, we hear sermon after sermon on drinking and marital faithfulness, and ignore gluttony and gossip. Funny how we talk about abortion and gay life styles all the time, but turn a blind eye to a couple living together living together attending church regularly, or ignore deacons and sunday school teachers missing because of their fishing and sports events.

We pick and choose our sins. Imagine what a different perspective we might have of our church members if we could read all thoughts and motives.

I could have sworn by my wife's reaction the worst sin was eating the last bit of ice cream in the freezer.

Ok next to not believing in Jesus and God what would be the next worse?

Without violating any rules and being as discrete as possible. She told me any sin against the flesh is the worst sin one could commit because the other sins are outside the flesh. Our body is the temple of God, we are to keep it holy.
