Seven Deadly Sins: Lust



Lust is a deadly vice precisely because it attacks the ability to love, which is at the very heart of what it means to be human. It attacks the ability to see what is truly good and beautiful, leaving only a voracious hunger in its place. A person driven by lust seldom thinks clearly, in spite of the cunning or guile he uses to get what he wants. In the end, lust leaves desolation and abandonment in its wake.




Seven Deadly Sins: Lust



The first sin that is to be analyzed is lust. In my own observation, lust seems the most obvious of the seven deadly sins, and also the one that can overcome the unwary Christian soul like a flash flood. But it is insidious too, not only attacking like a blitzkrieg with its temptations, but also worming its way underneath the skin, planting seeds of temptation everywhere, sometimes leading the soul down little steps towards it before finally administering a fatal wound.


Lust, which encompasses fornication, masturbation and adultery, is considered a sin today, even though many of the seven deadly sins are not regarded as capital sins today. In the Christian tradition, punishment for lust is to be smothered by fire and brimstone. However, Christians can be forgiven of lust.


The seven deadly sins, also known as cardinal sins, are types of sins within some Christian teachings, although they are not mentioned in the Bible. Behaviors or habits are grouped into this category if they directly form other wickedness. According to the regular list, they are pride, greed, wrath, envy, lust, gluttony and sloth, which are the opposite from the seven heavenly virtues. These types had their origins with the Desert Fathers, who recognized seven or eight evil thoughts. The seven deadly sins were portrayed in paintings and decorations on churches, as well as in older textbooks.


Lust is one of the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man, also known as the Seven Deadly Sins. They are seven powerful demons that represent the seven deadly sins of Judeo-Christian religions. Lust represents excessive desires or thoughts of sexual nature, or desire in general. Another character named "Lust" is Jacob, one of the Sons of Trigon. 041b061a72
