The general consensus is that Gary is gluttony because he doesn't do much except eat. You could argue that Patrick also represents gluttony in some way, but he's more an embodiment of sloth (he's usually unemployed and won an award for literally doing nothing).

SpongeBob as lust does seem like an odd choice, though there was one episode where he developed a strange romantic relationship with a Krabby Patty, so you could say he has excessive feelings for pretty much anything.

The rest of them are pretty straight-forward: Mr. Krabs loves money sometimes more than his own daughter, Plankton cares more about stealing his rival's secret recipe more than improving the quality of his own business, Sandy's from Texas which already gives her a superiority complex, and Squidward hates SpongeBob with a burning passion.

Ha, hadn't heard that. At the risk of seeming old, I remember them from Gilligan's Island.

Mr. Howell, the millionaire = Greed

Mrs. Howell, his wife who never did anything = Sloth

The Professor = Pride

Ginger, hollywood personified = Lust

Mary Ann, always comparing herself to Ginger = Envy

The Skipper, overweight and always hitting Gilligan with his hat does double duty = Gluttony and Wrath.

Which just leaves Gilligan. The person whose fault it is they are there in the first place. The one who fouls up their escapes, and generally causes mayhem. The one who the island 'belongs' to.

Yes. Gilligan=the devil.

Galatians 5:19-21 does, actually. It expands upon some of them (e.g., licentiousness and impurity are individually listed, although they both fall under the main sin of lust), but the list can be narrowed down into seven main "categories".

I would never see hatred as pride, overly proud people feel good about themselves, not hatefull. I would pair hatred with envy, people can hate others person that have want they want ( or want what they have... in case of partners)

I guess under wrath you could list hatred aswell, same with variance ( had to look up what it meant in this instance) strife, murder. Well basicly anything angry..

revellings could be pride, to revel in your own grandness or accomplishment. Or with a little more stretch gluttony, indulgence aswell. When you enjoy your food so much.

+1

Oct 31, 2019
@Sifhraven, yeah, that's why I don't think the lists are really comparable. Pride and hatred is a bit of a stretch, but it's closer when you look at the biblical meaning of the word, which is really a state of enmity or opposition.

The History Channel did a great 7-part series on The 7 Deadly Sins - 1 hour for each. (It's available as a 2-CD set and I bought it and have watched them several times.) They explained that the list was not formulated as such until centuries after The Bible, by a monk named Evagrius Ponticus (or something like that). JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT STRICTLY BIBLICAL DOES NOT MAKE THEM LESS IMPORTANT. And truthfully, there are other major religions that have very similar lists

I say this because there are many Christians who can't think beyond The Bible. I consider myself a Christian, and I consider The Bible to be a Divinely Inspired work, but it is not perfect. It was, after all, made by man who will always make mistakes regarding God's Laws.

Another problem is that there is so much oral tradition that people assume is Biblical, when actually it is not. A good bit of what people think is Biblical is actually from John Milton"s 17th Century book-length epic poem, Paradise Lost.

I have heard of it ( and surprised that someone hasnt) but to be honest, I never consciously paired it with christianity or religion in general (if you would ve asked where it came from,I would reach that conclusion, but isnt necessarily categorised under religion in my head). Which may sound weird cause it has the word sin in it. BUt I guess it depends on what age you hear the terms and in what context. Plus I think in english the words is only used in connection with religion right? While In my language, it has a broader meaning (evolved into, originally it being the same) just about morals.

+1
Level 78
Oct 30, 2016
I always thought gluttony was a form of greed. I guess since it is based mainly on too much eating and drinking while greed extends to money, power, or whatever, gluttony gets its own section.
+1
Level 67
May 26, 2019
you can have no interest in material items, but still want to eat everything in sight in too big portions. Gluttony is more indulgance than greed.

I guess greed can turn a person ugly on the inside and gluttony on the outside. (I feel like a sidenote is needed... a little extra weight doesnt necessarily make a person ugly, in many cases it makes them look better. But the outside is just a package it is not what counts. But in the case of this sin excessiveness is key and it is often depicted as morbidly obese characters)

+1
Level 67
Oct 31, 2019
To me greed is wanting to amass wealth and power for its own sake where as gluttony is putting carnal pleasures above all else.

There's a problem with reading words (or their translations) written 700 years ago, and applying today's connotations to them. If you want to understand why it's a mortal sin, I recommend reading either CS Lewis' or Ezra Taft Benson's discourses on the subject.
+1

"Pride" in this sense means something along the lines of the modern usages of "egotism" or "vanity." It's not meant to suggest you should have low self-esteem.

Dec 10, 2020
Exactly! It is an organized hierarchy and it makes sense. Pride is the root which is why it is at the bottom. The bottom 3 are sins of the intellect and are also harder to identify. The top 3 are sins of appetite and are more surface manifestations of the sins of the intellect, which is why they are on top because they are more easily recognizable. Sloth is 'the middle sin", and there is controversy on its classification and placement.

Not being offensive, but how is envy wrong ?

I'm not a Christian so I might not understand that's why I asked but if I see one of my friend knows Chinese which helps him a lot and I wish to learn it too then where am I wrong ?

+2
Level 60
Nov 1, 2019
I'm not a Christian but I would say that all of these can be good in moderation, but that in excess they can lead people into doing things that negatively impact themselves or other people. In this case being constantly dissatisfied with what you have and wanting other people to have less so that they don't have more than you. That said, all of these are nearly universal human traits and labelling them as sins is ridiculous and harmful.
+1
Level 67
Feb 18, 2020
Envy is not hoping/wishing you had something someone else has (in which case I could understand you not seeing what is wrong about it). It is hating others intensely for it and wishing horrible things upon them. Envy turns someone in the worst version of themselves, hate consumes you and it doesnt always stay with wishing bad things upon the other. In the smallest cases the empathy is gone, when someone they envy (like a sibling) falls instead feeling sorry for them they are happy about it (or actually the cause) but in larger cases it can lead up to murder.

Envy instills a rage and hate and can turn people into monsters (of the human kind, nothing supernatural). Imo the worst of the group, and one that really does not have a neutral or positive side to it. It is the only one that feels truly evil instead of just unfavored behaviour.

+1
Level 53
Dec 10, 2020
You are spot-on in your explanation of envy, as I understand it. I can understand why you think it is the worst of the 7. In fact, there is a hierarchy, and the general consensus is that only Pride is worse than Envy, which is #2. However, I would ask you to consider this - If someone had a GOOD sense of Pride, a GOOD self-esteem, based on the right reasons rather than a BAD case of Pride with either low self-esteem or perhaps being really superficial, then they wouldn't have many problems with Envy, would they? I'm not trying to argue or disagree. I'm just trying to explain that Pride is the *root* of all of them and is present in all of them. Not all of them are present in all of the others, but Pride is.
