Because of increasing wickedness in the last days, people tend to regard sin lightly. This hinders them from repenting and turning to God for His mercy and forgiveness. People should realize the seriousness and weight of sin as revealed in the fact that sin caused the Son of God to die on the cross. The burden of man's sin was loaded upon Yeshua.
1. ALL SIN IS MORTAL
Every kind of sin is the same in the eyes of God. Religion has confusing classifications of sin thereby producing licentiousness without remorse or regret. All sin brings death to the soul and is death deserving. Rom 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death!
1 Cor 6:9-10- Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. This all sound like Sodom and Gomorrah
Was that real? Did God punish them? Well have a look!

2. ALL MAN IS GUlLTY
Every kind of man is equally sinful in the eyes of God: the rich and the poor, the freeman or prisoner, the master and the slaves. We are all sinners! God is right and we are wrong.
Rom 3:10 - As it is written:"There is no one righteous, not even one"
Rom 3:23 -for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
1 Jn 1:8 -If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
3. ALL MUST BE PUNISHED
Each one is guilty and will give an account of his/her life to God
Romans 2:11 God's shows no favoritism.
Ezekiel 18:20-the soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. Sin needs to be punished according to the broken command (Exodus 20) that is in the throne of God, in the ark as a testimony. The blood of the lamb is saving. When you stand before God remember you where freed not to break the command again but to keep it.
4. ALL PUNISHMENT OF MAN'S SIN WAS POURED OUT ON JESUS
Because every man is guilty, no one has a chance to receive help from another person. The only the help is JESUS the Son of God. He tasted death for every one. Imagine how heavy was all of mankind's sin and punishment that was poured on Him!
Heb 2:9 - But we see Yeshua, who was m ade a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
Although all sin is mortal but all sin can be forgiven. the Messiah has already paid for the punishment for our sin. He is our substitute. He died in our place. You need not to pay for the punishment of sin yourself. Now you are free to obey.
1 John 5:10-12-13- He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I Write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
