There are no major or minor. A sin is a sin. A sin of a heinous Murder stands equally next to a sin of a simple lie: both are forgivable, or both will send you to Hell. Yeah, God is loving that way.

.
What does that mean?

Oh and while all sin is equal in a way as all can bring death, we should NEVER assume that all sins are just as bad as all other sins.

Truly there are sins that are very much greater than other sins.
So this means you cant do a big sin and hide behind the reasoning, "All sins are the same so whats the big deal?"

If all sins gain the entrance to Hell, surely one can't claim one sin is better than the other.

My point is this:

It is both correct and an error to say that all sins are equal.

It is correct, in that all sins, even the very smallest sin bring with it death.
The smallest sin has to still be confessed and covered in the Lord's blood.
Thus all sins are in this way said to be 'equal"

But it is rather foolish to say that the sin of cheating on your wife is just as bad as the sin of speeding in your car...

This is why Jesus could say that while the people mistreating him were guilty of all kinds of error, the one who handed him over to them had committed the "greater sin".

Correct. This is God's explanation

Error. This is Man's explanation and a dangerous one.

Nope, I'm always right about this stuff...

(Trust me, you are going to find this out sooner or later. Im always correct on this type of topic...always)

"The greater sin' is God's way of telling us that not all sins are the same to God.
The sin of a Christian is worse...

Although the non-Christian still sins, they do so in total ignorance.
When I sin, the same act of disobedience is seen as being far greater in it's depth because of the knowledge I have about it's sinfullness.

The more you know, the more is expected of you.
The more you have been given the more is asked of you.

The sins of the christian are far greater than the sins of the Lost...

To say you hold a diamond, and a diamond that has been reveled to me are distinctly different.

Again, a sin is a sin, whether you label yourself as Christian, Muslim or whatever else. Once committed and not asked for forgiveness, you are bound to Hell.
