The Real Sin of Ananias and Sapphira

Be honest: God's execution of Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5 seems a little harsh. For starters, it was "only one sin," and secondly, didn't Peter just have a bigger sin when he denied Jesus three times? Why would someone who was shown so much mercy for that deny someone else the chance to repent? If it seems harsh, that's because it is. That's kind of the point. But I would argue that there's more to the story than just lying = death. A lot more. If only we would take the time to dive in and be honest with the Text.
