10 Commandments: "You shall not" ordered by severi

Like this post
The second half of the 10 commandments seem to follow a similar patter. They say what you should not do:

You shall not murder
You shall not commit adultery
You shall not steal
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
You shall not covet your neighbor's house, you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.

-----

I am aware that the wages of all sin is death, but I do believe I've read somewhere that there are different severities of sin. Is there any backing to say that these are ordered in terms of severity?

The tiniest sin, if there is one, puts a non-elect in hell and puts Christ on the cross for an elect. All sin therefore has an ultimate disvalue before GOD.

I'd say the Catholic Philosophy of The Purgatory is a confirmation that there are minor sins that do not put you in Hell (unreasonably), but something you must pay for still in the Purgatory.

Link, Wikipedia, The Purgatory: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purgatory.

Good? Cool
