Most deviant behavior now are considered to be a disorder rather than a sin. Most serial killers are called psychopaths or anti-social. People who persistently brood over bad thoughts are called depressed. People who are in excessive doubt about the people around them are called paranoid. Anti-social behavior, depression and parnoia are all mental disorders.

Not only that, these types of mental disorders also have various cures. A depressed person just needs a dose of serotonin to snap back to a happy mood.

The important question now is this: How can you tell if it's you that is the problem or it's just your brain malfunctioning? What if an evil person takes a pill for his bad behavior and become a good person afterwards? If more and more bad behaviors are attributed to mental disorder, how can we be held responsible for the bad things we do? What if we do bad things just because our brain lacks a particular chemical which allows us to make good judgements?

God judges us by what is in your heart. If doing the sin was something wrong in your brain, then God could determine this. But if that evil to do the sin was your heart's intent, God will know this also.

jas 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

mt 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

Knowledge of sin is where a sin becomes a sin. Truly not knowing it was a sin excuses you from it. But if in your heart you knew it was a sin because you had a gut feeling about it. But did it anyway. That is considered ignoring the prompting of the Holy spirit. Which is ignoring God.

There will be no innocent people in hell. And there will be no guilty people in heaven. For if God cannot determine who did what and for what reason. Then He would be less than perfect and rightous and could not be our judge. There won't be anyone pulling a fast one on judgement day and getting by with it. All will be exposed, and the judgement will be determined from that.
