Pride. After all, all the 7 Deadly Sins are caused by it. It also stops people from repenting and opening their hearts to God's grace.
Pride is the beginning of all other sins.


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

Envy. To be envious of someone is to believe that you are being shortchanged--that they have something you don't and you deserve AT LEAST as good as they've got. Envy is the opposite of humility the same way pride is, only it's the purely destructive side. Pride can be used for good. Envy is much harder to channel.

Sloth-- Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, and Greed can make people driven to do good, even if their priorities are misplaced, and even if their intentions are bad. Drives can help get a lot done, regardless of how sinful a person is. But being a Sloth is indifference--no drive, no motivation, no love or concern for others. Being a Sloth is just dying faster: a waste of time and space, without ever contributing to the world. I believe that is far worse than any of the other deadly sins--wasting the life that God gave you.

The Seven Deadly Sins isn't listed formally in the bible...

but I think lust is the worst. The greatest men under God have all fallen to mostly lust after women. David and Bathsheba, Samson and Delilah.

Isn't it wrath, not anger? That's a different thing....

I don't understand how pride can be a sin, especially since pride can be a motivator to do good. There's nothing wrong with being happy with an accomplishment, and having pride in your abilities.

As for the others.... I would say Greed, because when a person is successful in instigating their own greed, they start to expect to be given everything and feel entitlement, and pursue the other six.

Pride in this case is more so hubris. That's like overly proud and cocky. Read the Odyssey for a great example.

I would say Greed by far, i mean only
because I could see what it could do
to you and ughh that person that I
trusted a couple years back, it
was a HELLHOLE for me, it
just as no one seems to
appreciate of what they have
or whats been give to them
and yet they would think it's
to them that it;s never enough
of anything, it;sad.
Just my opinion.





There is only one person who could ever
make you happy, and that person is you.

I think the worst is sloth...I don't even consider the others to be bad - they all have their purposes. Being lazy really has no purpose though.


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
Marcus Aurelius
