Biblical Lists

In the Book of Proverbs, it is stated that "the Lord" specifically regards "six things the Lord hateth, and the seventh His soul detesteth." namely:[2]
  • Haughty eyes
  • A lying tongue
  • Hands that shed innocent blood
  • A heart that devises wicked plots
  • Feet that are swift to run into mischief
  • A deceitful witness that uttereth lies
  • Him that soweth discord among brethren
.While there are seven of them, this list is considerably different from the traditional one, the only sin on both lists being pride.^ JoeT : Analytically speaking, there's only one candidate for the biggest sin - Pride.
  • Comments on Seven Deadly Sins: On Faith at washingtonpost.com 2 February 2010 9:45 UTC newsweek.washingtonpost.com [Source type: Original source]

^ But, there is definitely one big difference.
  • The anger of the festering fringe - Roger Ebert's Journal 14 May 2010 17:017 UTC blogs.suntimes.com [Source type: Original source]

^ Pride In almost every list pride ( or hubris or vanity ) is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and indeed the ultimate source from which the others arise.

Another list of bad things, given this time by the Epistle to the Galatians, includes more of the traditional seven sins, although the list is substantially longer: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, "and such like".[3]

Development of the Traditional Seven Sins

The modern concept of the Seven Deadly Sins is linked to the works of the 4th century monk Evagrius Ponticus, who listed eight evil thoughts in Greek as follows:[4]
  • Γαστριμαργία (gastrimargia)
  • Πορνεία (porneia)
  • Φιλαργυρία (philargyria)
  • Λύπη (lype)
  • Ὀργή (orge)
  • Ἀκηδία (akedia)
  • Κενοδοξία (kenodoxia)
  • Ὑπερηφανία (hyperephania)
They were translated into the Latin of Roman Catholic spiritual pietas (or Catholic devotions), as follows:[5]
These 'evil thoughts' can be broken down into three groups:[5]
  • lustful appetite (Gluttony, Fornication, and Avarice)
  • irascibility (Anger)
  • intellect (Vainglory, Sorrow, Pride, and Discouragement)
.In AD 590, some years after Evagrius, Pope Gregory I revised this list to form the more common Seven Deadly Sins, by folding sorrow/despair into acedia, vainglory into pride, and adding extravagance and envy, while removing fornication from the list.^ Archive for 'seven deadly sins' .

^ Pride is considered the most deadly sin for some reason.

In the order used by both Pope Gregory and by Dante Alighieri in his epic poem The Divine Comedy, the seven deadly sins are as follows:
  1. luxuria (extravagance)
  2. gula (gluttony)
  3. avaritia (avarice/greed)
  4. acedia (acedia/discouragement)
  5. ira (wrath)
  6. invidia (envy)
  7. superbia (pride)
.The identification and definition of the seven deadly sins over their history has been a fluid process and the idea of what each of the seven actually encompasses has evolved over time.^ But these seven Sins aren't actually deadly.

Additionally, as a result of semantic change:
  • Lust was substituted for luxuria in all but name
  • socordia (sloth) was substituted for acedia
It is this revised list that Dante uses. (However, the extravagant are not off the hook—Dante has the wasteful punished in the fourth circle of hell). .The process of semantic change has been aided by the fact that the personality traits are not collectively referred to, in either a cohesive or codified manner, by the Bible itself; other literary and ecclesiastical works were instead consulted, as sources from which definitions might be drawn.^ In the spirit of God's law , a person not only steals by taking another's possessions, but also by refusing to work in order to share and give to others in need.

Historical and modern definitions of the deadly sins

Extravagance

Extravagance (Latin, luxuria) is unrestrained excess. Extravagant behaviour includes the frequent purchase of luxury goods, and forms of debauchery.
.In the Romance languages, the cognates of luxuria (the Latin name of the sin) evolved to have an exclusively sexual meaning; the Old French cognate was adopted into English as luxury, but this lost its sexual meaning by the 14th century.^ The Latin name given by the old writers to the third of the Seven Deadly Sins is luxuria, and I have translated it literally by the English word luxury.

Gluttony

"Excess"
(Albert Anker, 1896)

.In the Christian religions, it is considered a sin because of the excessive desire for food, or its withholding from the needy.^ How many young Christians have; fallen into great sexual sins because they blindly accepted the dating system;; because they did not consider the danger of entering into temptation and the; sinfulness of inward lust?

  • John Climacus (7th century) in The Ladder of Divine Ascent places victory over the eight thoughts as individual steps of the thirty-step ladder: wrath (8), vainglory (10, 22), sadness (13), gluttony (14), lust (15), greed (16, 17), acedia (18), and pride (23).
  • Dante's (1265–1321) The Divine Comedy is a three-part work composed of "Inferno", "Purgatorio", and "Paradiso". "Inferno" divides Hell into nine concentric circles, four of which directly correspond to some of the deadly sins (Circle 2 to lust, 3 to gluttony, 4 to greed, and 5 to wrath, as well as sloth).^ If I remember my catechism correctly four--gluttony, sloth,greed and lust--were sins of the flesh.

Simple English

Christianity says that there are sins that are worse to commit than others. There are seven sins that it calls deadly:

Ranked in a growing order of severity (worst sins listed last) like in Dante's Divine Comedy (in the Purgatorio), the seven deadly sins are:

  • Lust (fornication) — Unlawful sexual desire, such as desiring sex with a person outside marriage. (Dante's definition was "excessive love of others," and this reduced the love that a person could give God).
  • Gluttony — Wasting of food, either through eating too much food, drink or drugs, misplaced desire for food for its taste, or not giving food to the needy ("excessive love of pleasure" was Dante's definition).
  • Greed (covetousness, avarice) — Greed is when somebody wants more things than the person needs or can use. Dante wrote that greed is too much "love of money and power".
  • Sloth (also accidie, acedia) — Laziness; idleness and wastefulness of time that a person has. Laziness is hated because:
  • Others have to work harder
  • Delaying what God wants a person to do or not doing it at all
  • It makes life harder for oneself, because useful work does not get done
  • It, like gluttony, is a sin of waste, for it wastes time, maybe because of pride
  • Sloth is a state of equilibrium: one does not produce much, but one does not need much either (in Dante's theology, sloth is the "failure to love God with all one's heart, all one's mind, and all one's soul"; specific examples including being lazy, being scared, lack of imagination, complacency, and not doing what the person should do).
  • Wrath (anger, hate) — Inappropriate (not right) feelings of hatred, revenge or even denial, as well as punitive desires outside of justice (Dante's description was "love of justice perverted to revenge and spite").
  • Envy (jealousy) — Hating other people for what they have. Dante wrote that envy is "Love of one's own good perverted to a desire to deprive other men of theirs" (in other words, thinking that the person himself should have more, even if it means someone else will have less because of him.)
  • Pride (vanity) — A desire to be important or attractive to others or excessive love of self (holding self out of proper position toward God or fellows; Dante's definition was "love of self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbor").

People see that some of those sins are connected. They have tried to put an order to them. For example, pride (love of self out of proportion) is needed for gluttony (the over-consumption or waste of food), as well as sloth, envy, and most of the others. Each of those sins is a way to not loving god and to not loving the others as much as oneself. The Scholastic theologians developed schema of attribute and substance of will to explain these sins.

As previously mentioned, the Latin words for the sins are: superbia, avaritia, luxuria, invidia, gula, ira and accidia. The first letters of these words form the medieval Latin word saligia, whence the verb saligiare (to commit a deadly sin) is taken. Various mnemonic devices exist for remembering the sins in English, e.g. PEG'S LAW (pride, envy, gluttony, sloth, lust, avarice, wrath).

In the official Catechism of the Catholic Church, consisting of 2,865 numbered sections and first published in 1992 by order of Pope John Paul II, the seven deadly sins are dealt with in one paragraph. The principal codification of moral transgression for Christians continues to be the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes, which are a positive statement of morality, and part of the Sermon on the Mount.

The opposite of these sins are the seven virtues (chastity, moderation, charity, zeal, meekness, generosity, and humility) in corresponding order to the above seven deadly sins.

= Punishments

= According to the Divine Comedy, there are punishments for those who die with unconfessed deadly sins. Those guilty of lust, are in the second circle of the Inferno. There they are blown around by a strong wind, without the hope of ever resting. This is because lust is so powerful, that it can blow one around without need or aim.[1]

The gluttons are in the third circle. There, they are forced to lie in a kind of slush, made by freezing rain, black snow, and hail. This used to symbolize what they made with their life.[2]
