No sins more harmful to mankind than adultery [includes homosexualty} and murder.

Natural bent from birth towards sin as do we all. Given the option, we would do wrong everytime. It is the wisdom of God to know we are impure very moment of conception.

Not excuse sin but acknowledge it. "Purge me oh Lord" is a cry to remove defilement.
