What are the seven deadly sins?
Here's the answer:
The seven deadly sins are pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, and sloth.
The seven deadly sins are found in Catholic theology—pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, and sloth. The Catholic Church teaches on the seven deadly sins, but the seven deadly sins are not found in the Bible. According to Catholic theology, they believe the seven deadly sins are the worst sins a person can commit.
• Each of the seven deadly sins have their own meaning.
• Pride means you think too highly of yourself.
• Envy is the feeling that you deserve something someone else has.
• Gluttony is when you really want to eat or drink all the time.
• Lust is a selfish focus on a sexual desire.
• Anger is when you want to be mad and take revenge on others.
• Greed is the feeling that you really want what someone else has.
• Sloth is when you are lazy.
Even though the term “seven deadly sins” are never spoken of in the Bible, the Bible does tell us pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, and sloth are all wrong. While each of these sins are bad, they are no worse or deadlier than any other sin. All sin is equal in God’s eyes.
"The Lord hates proud eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that kill those who aren’t guilty. He also hates hearts that make evil plans and feet that are quick to do evil. He hates any witness who pours out lies and anyone who stirs up conflict in the community" (Proverbs 6:17-19).
"Suppose you keep the whole law but trip over just one part of it. Then you are guilty of breaking all of it" (James 2:10).
"When you sin, the pay you get is death. But God gives you the gift of eternal life. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done" (Proverbs 6:23).
