Bible Study-Seven Deadly Sins

The 7 Deadly Sins

 

     The 7 deadly sins are not found in a list, per se, in the Bible but are written in the Catholic Catechism.

     I have listed their counterparts, where applicable, below:

 

Pride

 

     Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

 

     Mark 7:22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

 

     Mark 7:23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

 

Envy

 

     Romans 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

 

     Romans 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

 

     Romans 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

 

     Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

 

Gluttony  (Excess) (Gluttony not found in King James Bible)

 

     Matthew 23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

 

Lust

 

     1st John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

 

     1st John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

 

Anger

 

     Colossians 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

 

Greed  (Covetousness) (Greed not found in King James Bible)

 

     Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

 

Sloth

 

     Proverbs 19:15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.

 

     Below are the deadly sins as given us by the Holy Spirit; all of these are abominations, saith the Lord:

 

     Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

 

     Mark 7:22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

 

     Mark 7:23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
