What do we know about the seven deadly sins? Have you ever wondered what makes them so deadly? I mean, certainly we can understand how sloth might be socially unacceptable or how gluttony might not represent a good life choice—but what makes them a sin, and deadly at that? In this Bible study, we are going to look at pride, greed, gluttony, sloth, envy, anger, and lust with a feminine eye. We want to know what it looks like for a woman to live with a root bed of, say, envy or anger in her life. What does it feel like to have a gluttonous friend? What are the dangers of a mother full of pride or greed? How do I harm myself by being slothful? And, correct me if I am wrong, but I thought lust was attractive? Not only will you gain a strong biblical understanding of how these sins eat away at the foundation of your faith, but you will gain powerful insight into which of them plague your own walk with God, and with that knowledge comes victory! You are going to be blown away!
