Sin is an ugly business, especially the deadly ones. I mean, how are you going to bounce back from your sins if they kill you? They are deadly sins after all, and once you are trapped in their clutches of darkness, there is no coming back to the light. Let me explain.

  • Lust

Lust can be defined as an intense and uncontrollable desire. This can mean desire for power, fame, money, food or even a person. Just like the definition says, once these desires take hold, they are uncontrollable. By that very definition, you can’t control them. Rather than you controlling them, these desires begin to control your every thought and deed. The more you feed your thoughts, the more they grow until they are so far beyond your capacity to contain them, there is no reining them in again. Once this sin has you confined, you’re lost to the darkness of your own mind.

Gluttony is all about overindulgence. As a matter of fact, it is overindulging so much that there is a fair amount of waste left over but you still keep eating anyway. Feeding the poor or the homeless is never on your mind because you are too busy appeasing your insatiable desire to feed yourself. You become the epitome of selfishness, always putting your desires before others’ needs. That is the true sin. Once you allow gluttony to take over, it becomes a ravaging wolf that continues to feed but will never be full. The hunger inside you will always win, and you’ll never ever be full again.
