Correcting Protestant Myths that lead others away from Gods one true Church

There are many Protestant myths and I will post and dispell as many as possible.

Some examples are:

The Rapture, The Virgin Mary is not a Virgin and had other Children, Faith Alone, The Bible Alone, Once Saved always Saved, and the list goes on and on.

MYTH #6 All Sin is the Same there is not Mortal sin

Well 1John 5:17 proves this wrong right off the bat!

1John 5:17 All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin which is not mortal.

Then we have what Jesus taught us.

Matthew 12:32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.  

So the levels accoring to the bible are:

1) Unforgivable
2) Deadly (Mortal)
3) Not Deadly.


  1. Protestants do not regard "all sin is the same"... they consider all sin, where we fail to love God and our neighbor, to be a sin without degree or level of sinfulness. We agree that sin is revealed by ten commandments. The doctrine of the seven deadly sins is Catholic concerning lifestyle choices which can cause us to sin, but are not of themselves regarded as being sin. We regard blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, in accordance to the scriptures, as the only one that is mortal and unforgivable. It's your myth, not ours.

  2. Your myth, not ours. My uncle David's a Baptist, he considers all sin the same, and so does almost every Protestant I've ever talked to. The seven deadly sins were around long before the Church. Whether or not we Christians called them that prior is s different story. Satan's sin was pride, which got him kicked out of Heaven by Saint Michael the Archangel. Sure, God could've done it himself, but He clear didn't want to, otherwise, He would've. The phrase "mortal sin" meaning "deadly sin" is the description of the type of sin (idolatry, graven images, taking His Name in vain, not going to church on Sundays, dishonoring you parents, murder, adultery, grand theft, perjury, covetousness) that damages your soul by disobedience to the Ten Commandments. Hence the need for Penance. Penance repairs the soul. Broken souls don't get into Heaven. There's no fixing your soul after you die. That's why we better hope our souls aren't broken when we die. If we have venial sin left on us, venial sin being sin that doesn't lose us our friendship with God, we'll have to pay that off in the next life. Get a Douay-Rheims and read the second Maccabees.
