Posted:The Seven Deadly Sins:
Lust
Greed
Anger
Sloth
Covetousness
Pride
Gluttony

Which one (if you feel comfortable answering)is most prminent in ur life? Which one is least?

Myself, I think pride is teh one taht subtly influeces most of my descisions.
Greed and Gluttony are almost completly absent from my life, although i do suspect i would have a harder time with greed if i knew there was a plety for me to pick from. But either really influence aything i do.

Posted:At the moment, Gluttony. I'm cutting that out now though, I've stopped eating the piles of junk food I used to get through.

I imagine that once I've got rid of my gut, pride will take over a bit, but that's not a bad thing in small doses.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:I'd like to say Greed for my most. But I think it's actually Sloth. I'm just so lazy lately.

I think my least is Covetousness. I want what I want, not what others have.

Oh, for those that could use help I picked out common definitions for each of the 7.
quote:
Lust - To have an intense or obsessive desire, especially one that is sexual.

Greed - An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth

Anger - A strong feeling of displeasure or hostility.

Sloth - Aversion to work or exertion; laziness; indolence.

Covetousness - Excessively and culpably desirous of the possessions of another.

Pride - An excessively high opinion of oneself; conceit.

Gluttony - Excess in eating; extravagant indulgence of the appetite for food; voracity.

Posted:I'd like to add to covetousess the want of some"" someone else has. i.e. you want their gf/bf, their job, their attitude, etc. not a possesion, but still it counts.
Those are the kid of things that bug me ow and then, like i wish i could have people's attitude's about stuff sometimes.

Posted:Hmm....Well, I guess Lust would be most prominent, but I don't have a problem with it or see it as a sin. So does that count?

After that would be pride and depending on where I am Anger.

I think greed or coverousness would be the ones I have least of. If anything at times I think I need more greed in my life and I really don't get jealous of things. I like it when my friends have jobs and lovers and other things that make them happy. It makes my life easier.

Good topic Kyrian.

Posted:Most: LUST.. without a doubt, but I wouldnt go so far as to call it an obsession....yet
Least: Covetousness...I admire people for what they have, but I dont want it myself...

I must admit since I hurt my leg Gluttony has reared its ugly head...I never realised what fantastic excercise twirling is...

Posted:Hrmmm... I was looking at all 7 and then thought about how suseptable I am to each... So, just for fun, I'll rate myself on each. I tend to be honest with myself and am actually curious as to how I'll do...

Let's say "0" is absolutely, positively, abnormally NONE of this emotion.

2-3 would be VERY little

5 would be present in your life but not in an exorbitant amount.

7-8 would be a major factor in your life

and 10 would be hellbent dysfunction in that area...

I'd be a:
Lust: 4 (I usually lust after things that want me back )
Greed: 3 (Public school teacher!)
Anger: 5 (Only because I drive every day, 2 in the summer)
Sloth: 3 (used to be a 6 my first year teaching)
Covetousness: 3 (If it's yours it probably sucks anyway )
Pride: 4 (2 outside of Home Of Poi)
Gluttony: 3 (1 for anything but chocolate)

Hrmmm... I don't think that I'm that good a person per se... It's just not THOSE sins that I have. If the deadly sins were Sarcasm and Starting-too-many-projects-without-finishing-any-of-them I'd be needing to hit up church a bit more.

Posted:I like the starting-too-many-projects-without-finishing-any-of-them, I think that would be my main sin. But hold on, doesn't that sorta come under sloth?

My big one is pride. I have been known to be one of those "I am so proud of my modesty & goodness" people

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...
