Of the seven deadly sins, theologians and philosophers reserve a special place for pride. Lust, envy, anger, greed, gluttony and sloth are all bad, the sages say, but pride is the deadliest of all, the root of all evil, and the beginning of sin.
What's referred to as the “seven deadly sins” are: lust, gluttony, greed, laziness, wrath, envy, and pride. Although all of these things are sinful, no where in the Bible are they called deadly sins, and no where in the scriptures are they compiled into one list.
The strongest of the Seven Deadly Sins is Escanor, the lion's sin of pride.
According to Roman Catholic theology, the seven deadly sins are the seven behaviours or feelings that inspire further sin. They are typically ordered as: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.

In Mark 3:29 Jesus says that “whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.” Matthew's account adds that even blasphemy against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but not blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31–32).
"If you say something like 'Oh my God,' then you're using His name in vain, but if you're saying something like OMG it's not really using the Lord's name in vain because you're not saying 'Oh my God. ' It's more like 'Wow.
Unlike other sins, however, despair is by tradition the sole sin that cannot be forgiven; it is the conviction that one is damned absolutely, thus a repudiation of the Christian Saviour and a challenge to God's infinite capacity for forgiveness.
Therefore, blasphemy is not the greatest sin. But contrary to this: A Gloss on Isaiah 18:2 (“To a terrible people ...”) says, “Compared to blasphemy, every sin is less serious.” I respond: As was explained above (a. 1), blasphemy is opposed to the act of confessing the Faith.
In Christianity, it is considered a sin if the excessive desire for food causes it to be withheld from the needy. Some Christian denominations consider gluttony one of the seven deadly sins.
The term geez can be used in both negative and positive contexts, but it's more often used negatively to express frustration with what someone has said or done. Geez comes from a shortening of Jesus, which makes it a euphemism—a milder way of saying something that may be considered offensive, blasphemous, or harsh.
The expression, once considered taboo in polite conversation, has become as commonplace as “that's cool” or “see you later” in American parlance. The acronym, OMG, is nearly as ubiquitous.
Sometimes, the lord in oh my lord is stylized as lawd, a historic pronunciation of lord now associated with AAVE. For many Christians, saying oh my lord may be considered offensive, a possible instance of taking their lord's name in vein. One humorous substitute includes Oh, Mylanta!, a minced oath popularized by D.J.
A: There are many sins recounted in the Hebrew Bible but none are ever called unforgivable sins.
All Sin is not the Same
In fact, the Book of Proverbs (6:16-19) identifies seven things that God hates although there is not any punishment proscribed for those. Scripture clearly indicates that God does view sin differently and that He proscribed a different punishment for sin depending upon its severity.
Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come" (Matthew 12:22-32).
Where did golly, gosh, and gee come from? While this folksy trio are informal interjections, they are also euphemistic alterations of the word God or, in the case of gee, Jesus.
It's blasphemous. It's against Christians' religious beliefs to take God's name and use it to indicate surprise or shock, because that is disrespectful. AKA "Taking the Lord's name in vain".
Jeez is a shortening of Jesus, which can be used as an interjection in a similar (though often more harsh) way. The similar terms gee and gee whiz are also based on the word Jesus. Jeez can be used positively, especially as a way to express surprise or perhaps appreciation, as in Jeez, you did all this for me?
From the Latin, the English language takes the forms "Jesus" (from the nominative form), and "Jesu" (from the vocative and oblique forms). "Jesus" is the predominantly used form, while "Jesu" lingers in some more archaic texts.

Sloth is a sin against God's love in that it goes so far as to refuse the joy that comes from God and to be repelled by divine goodness. It is a loss of hope in ever achieving what God wants for us: our eternal happiness.
They held that both the Bible and Christian tradition taught that alcohol is a gift from God that makes life more joyous, but that over-indulgence leading to drunkenness is sinful.
