Jesus when confronted with the question of whether they should stone the whore, he said to them the one without sin cast the first stone, he did not specify the sin.
In your definition , the one who did no more than tell white lies all his life, should then feel free to stone her.
◄ James 2:10 ►
New International Version (©2011)
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
Still not following your logic. My definition does not say that at all and does not contradict what Christ said. Scripture even states that a sin can be so great as to be unforgivable (i.e. blasphemy against the Holy Spirit). The only time I have heard what you are arguing is in evangelical circles, not in Orthodoxy.
Christ was telling them that all who sin no matter which sin were just as guilty as the prostitute. Otherwise he could not just say, "he without sin", he would have to qualify it, as you claimed the good judge God has too.
I have been told by many Greek Orthodox Priests about these things, some who are bishops now, one time at a Bible class with our priest he said exactly what I have said about the mass murderer in heaven, and used the passage where Christ tells the disciples there are many rooms in God's mansion , which he explained as they are not all equal in heaven, as Jesus also taught those who are great on earth will be less in heaven.
Look at what he said about the prodigal son, he did not treat him as his older son thought he deserved, he treated him better than even his faithful son. Such is God's mercy to a repentant sinner, no matter what the sin.
When Jesus was crucified for our sins, he said "forgive them for they know not what they do". He was murdered for our sins! if God was as you say they all would have been struck down for killing God's son. And we would still be guilty of our sins.
Jesus said God desires mercy above all .
The parable of the workers is also about this ,
The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard
1“For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. 2He agreed to pay them a denariusa for the day and sent them into his vineyard.
3“About nine in the morning he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. 4He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’ 5So they went.
“He went out again about noon and about three in the afternoon and did the same thing. 6About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’
7“ ‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.
“He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’
8“When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’
9“The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. 10So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. 11When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 12‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’
13“But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? 14Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. 15Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’
16“So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
So God is saying he will pay those who have done little or sinned less the same as those who have kept every law and worked from the start. And he is telling us it is not ours to decide.
