Bucho Martin So committing murder and cheating in an exam are equal sins?
Emmanuel Chelule Disagreed! It's totally condemned in the Bible. The Bible is specific that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and they should be kept holy. He who does the will of the flesh doesn't have the Holy Spirit.
