Are You Guilty Of Any Of The 7 Deadly Sins?



By:  Bill and Teddy Rogers


1. Anger – A strong passion or emotion of displeasure caused by a sense of injury or insult, usually antagonistic and excited and directed toward a person, event, or situation.

Psalm 37:8 says “Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.”

2. Envy Or Covetousness – Being discontented or resentful or longing after the good fortune of another. Wanting what someone else has.

Proverbs 14:30 says “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”

James 3:16 says “For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.”

3. Sloth (Laziness) – Being Idle or Unwilling to work. Also includes Indifference and an “I Don't Care Attitude”.

Proverbs 19:15 says “Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless go hungry.”

Ecclesiastes 10:18 says “Through laziness, the rafters sag; because of idle hands, the house leaks.”

4. Greed – A desire to acquire things beyond reason. Many people are chasing the almighty dollar and wanting more power, prestige, and position while ignoring family, friends, and other responsibilities.

Ephesians 5:5 says “For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.”

5. Lust – A natural sexual instinct or sinful desire that's gotten off track. Lust is rampant in our American culture. Pornography is now a $7 to $8 Billion Dollar Industry in the United States alone.

Matthew 5:28 says “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

6. Gluttony– Excessive Eating or Drinking. Many of us are eating and drinking too much and are literally killing ourselves with clogged arteries, high blood pressure and cholesterol, obesity, and other self inflicted infirmities. Examples: eating fried and other foods that we know are bad for us and drinking too much coke and other beverages containing way too much sugar.

Proverbs 23:21 says “For drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.”

7. Pride – Having an excessively high opinion of our self and being conceited. This is the most deadly sin of all because it makes us want to appear wiser, smarter, bigger, better, richer, finer, and more righteous than we really are. Some people, in an attempt to appear better off than they really are, have a bunch of credit cards all maxed out and, in reality, are completely broke.

Proverbs 16:18 says “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall”.

Let's Ask God to search our hearts and reveal any sins that we just don't want to own up to.
