ANSWER: No, every sin is against the sovereignty, holiness, and goodness of God, and against his righteous law, and God is righteously angry with our sins and will punish them in his just judgment both in this life, and in the life to come.
The declaration made in this catechism question--that God judges and punishes sin--is very hard for us to hear. Why must God punish sin? Why do you think it is difficult for us to accept that every sin must fall under God's judgment?* How did Satan try to convince Adam and Eve that disobeying God would not lead to punishment? (See Genesis 3:4-5.) Are there echoes of Satan's urgings in messages about judgment that we hear today?
When we accept that God's judgment of sin is for real, we can't help but agree with what the psalmist says in Psalm 130:3. What does that verse tell us about ourselves and our ability to escape judgment? He's not mentioned by name in this psalm, but who makes it possible for us (and for the psalmist's original audience) to claim the steadfast love and plentiful redemption of God mentioned in verse 7?** See Romans 5:1-11.
