As previously stated, the Bible does not enumerate the seven deadly sins side by side. However, as you will see, there are countless scriptural references to each of the sins alone.
The seven deadly sins have a history that dates back to 400 A.D. Evagrius Ponticus, a fourth-century monk, was the first to categorize the vices. However, Evagrius selected eight, not seven, of the most heinous sins to avoid.
Pope Gregory 1 modified the list to seven items two centuries later. Pope Gregory 1 not only contributed to the formulation of the seven deadly sins, but he also devised the seven celestial virtues. Both the seven deadly sins and the seven heavenly virtues are validated by the Bible.
Lust is defined as an overwhelming desire to indulge in illicit or immoral sexual pleasure. Lust can result in sexual immorality between two unmarried persons (fornication) or between two people who are not lawfully wedded to each other (adultery). Adultery can also occur when a married individual seeks sexual pleasure with someone who is not married. If the desire for sexual pleasure is not suppressed, it might progress to rape or even bestiality. Also, you must try to play this Which Sin Are You quiz.
Which Sin Are You?
Gluttony is defined as excessive eating of food or anything else to the point of waste. In the Christian context, gluttony is defined as overindulging in food when you should be saving some for the poor.
Greed is an extreme desire and ardent affection for material wealth. It is also known as avarice, covetousness, or cupidity. Greed, like passion and gluttony, stems from an illogical desire for something you don’t need.
Greed displays itself in a variety of ways, including • material hoarding, • theft and robbery, and • bribery and corruption.
Sloth, also known as acedia, is idleness exhibited by the purposeful avoidance of work. Unlike the other deadly sins we’ve discussed thus far, laziness isn’t motivated by immorality. Rather, it is motivated by a desire to evade responsibilities. “Those who do not work should not eat,” says one saying that perfectly defines the sin of sloth. Of course, it makes more sense when there is more work to be done than there are willing workers.
Sloth may also indicate a lack of interest in spiritual development. When you stop practicing the fruits of the Holy Spirit or using the gifts of the Holy Spirit, you are termed slothful. The Bible condemns slothfulness in both its bodily and spiritual manifestations.
About the quiz
Wrath is simply the uncontrollable expression of fury, rage, or hatred. Wrath is motivated by a strong desire for vengeance and is frequently fueled by an illogical desire to harm others. Because it is motivated by feelings of revenge, the sin of rage can linger even after the person who provoked it has died. Long-running family feuds or corporate rivalry are classic examples of rage.
Envy is the desire for others’ possessions, happiness, and talents and abilities. Most envious people are depressed and will go to great lengths to have what others have. They believe that the other person does not deserve their wealth, talents, or status.
As you may already know, sin entered the world as a result of the devil’s envy for God’s throne. Cain also murdered his brother, Abel, out of jealousy.
Pride is defined as an overwhelming love for oneself, faith in one’s skills, and a drive to outperform everyone else. Because pride is such a heinous sin, it is frequently regarded as the root cause of the other six of the seven deadly sins.
It’s worth emphasizing that Satan was brought down from heaven due of pride and envy. Because pride is an unreasonable sense of self-worth, proud people seldom see their demise coming.
