    I'd have to rate greed as worst, wrath close second.

    Lust, I agree with janesmum. No points for that one.

    I gave lust high points because that is what can lead to affairs etc.

    I don't see lust as being wrong at all between two people who are together if that makes sense.

    Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.

    Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation.

    Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

    Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.

    Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.

    Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.

    Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.

    I'm sure someone else has a better explanation.
    Yes I see gluttony as the same. Continuous over indulgence. I mean, we all treat ourselves and our kids to an icecream, nice meal at a restaurant, choccie, etc once in a while. However it is when you loose control over your undesirable eating habits, that it can turn into gluttony.

    Greed I believe is something where plenty is never enough when it comes to all things materialistic.

    Just look up "7 deadly sins" in wikipedia and you'll get a detailed explanation between them all.

    I agree with a PP about the lust contributing to cheating and affairs. It is healthy within a relationship, but it is a sin when you lust after someone who you should not be lusting after IYKWIM.
