    Smile Demerit points for deadly sins (light hearted)

    If you look at the following "deadly sins", which ones would get the most demerit points if you were God? Which ones are more serious than others?
    I would like to keep this light hearted. And no, in no means am I referring to myself as being God. This is just a conversation I had at church last week, with a fellow Christian.

    For me I would give the following points:

    Lust.........3 points
    Gluttony...2 points
    Sloth ......2 points
    Wrath......5 points
    Greed......4 points
    Pride.......4 points
    Envy.......4 points

    If this thread somehow gets out of hand, then I will request a mod to delete it, if they haven't done so yet. So please stay polite and don't go bible bashing or Christian bashing

    I'd probably rate wrath and greed as the worst ones, so worth the most 'demerit points'.

    I think greed and gluttony are pretty similar and the worst, along with wrath.

    If gluttony was just about food, I'd give it 1 point as I love food

    I can see the positives and negatives in ALL of those - depending on the context!

    Lust - zero points it's human nature.
    Greed - as long as you don't hurt anyone in the process maybe 1 point.
    Pride - everyone should have pride zero points.
    Envy - again human nature and essential in order to succeed.
    Gluttony - fair enough 1 point. Especially if its chocolate cake.
    Wrath - 2 points no good can ever come from it.
    Sloth - 1 point for me today.

    Well i'm no expert but i view gluttony as over-indulgence or over-consumption beyond what you need. I view greed as the overwhelming desire to possess things, for your own gain, beyond what you really need. Similar but different.
    I'm sure someone else has a better explanation.
