If a man puts his finger in the fire, he will burn it. If an infant who doesn`t know what fire is does the same, he/she will also get burnt. If a man drinks something with poison in it, he will die. If there is an antidote for the poison he will live. If sins of ignorance were of no consequence, then the message of the gospel would not be for those who are ignorant of their sin. But in fact, that`s exactly why Jesus brought the gospel to us, for that very reason, because sin is a killer of the soul, whether or not it is realized. This is why Jesus said to go into ALL the world and preach the gospel to all the nations, because of the deadliness of sin. This is why Jesus said let the dead bury the dead. He wasn`t being unkind, he was merely stressing the importance of the message. People`s souls are on the line, and Jesus wants to save as many as is possible. Sin is the poison that is drunk by all, whether knowingly or unknowingly, and Jesus is the antidote. If you do not eat and drink him, then the poison within you will kill you, whether or not you know it.

I think if we realised everything we did as a sin...was a sin, we couldn't handle it. 
I find our conscience is a good place to know what is sin or not, as long as we are aware its God highlighting it.  The devil on one shoulder, God on the other.
Discernment.

Sin is defined as falling short of Gods glory. I think there are lots of things that fall short of His glory, that are bypassed by a lot of people. As well as many things that are looked upon as sin and missing perfection, when they are not in Gods eyes.

The woman who anointed Jesus as an example. As well as looking at Jesus in overturning the tables and the way He spoke. This was not sin but people don't look to see how God sees sin. Its very different to the fallen worlds interpretation .That's why sin is often pidgeon holed and not seen accurately for what it really is.

Exactly so. Slowly as we are growing closer to God we are being shown more of our own problems, our own inner ways which we didn't previously realize were there. All of us are very ugly before God even after He has started working on us. Every time we quench the Spirit, we stop God's work on us. Eventually, I believe, if we do it (quench the Spirit) too often we will find ourselves with Esau having no more place of repentance.

I agree with that.

In some respects I disagree with this as in scripture in ephesians tells us how God the Father sees us through Jesus...with Jesus we have approach to God, he sees us as perfect through Jesus...we are also told that our sins are forgiven and God will remember them no more.

Again not quite sitting right with me as in why do we have the story of the Prodigal Son?  if there was eventually going to be no place for repentance then we do not even have hope let alone mercy.  There should always be room for mercy.

Sorry if this sounds pedantic but it niggled at me enough to point these things out.

Yes.  That is the difference, the Holy Spirit does the revealing not man or the church otherwise you do get condemnation.  Words of life are .... there is no condemnation for those in Christ.
