    I'd like to expound upon a conversation that I have been having with Sky Dancer in another thread. We were talking about sin and sinning.

    So, i thought that a good place to start is to address our sins. For those of other religions or no religion at all..you can call them moral struggles or whatever you feel comfortable with.

    I'll go first.

    1. Gluttony(I am overweight)

    2. I tend to be lazy on my days off... I could be more productive..sloth?

    3. I can be selfish, especially when I feel I'm being taken advantage of.

    4. Sexual thoughts(which is what the conversation was about)

    5. Cursing.

    Those are the main ones... if I think of anymore I'll add them.

    Sins aren't the seven deadly. There are 10.

    Cruelty to fellow people. I try not to be, and mostly I'm not. But I can be really cruel if I get pissed off enough. Cursing is another one.

    I made a list of my sins once. I was surprised to find that it was a pretty long list. I suppose my pride blinded me to the truth. Since then, I've been working to change that one thing at a time.

    However, thats between God, me, and any of the people I hurt. I don't think group confessions are really a good idea. especially on internet boards.

    Pride
    lust
    anger
    sloth
    I love others before god
    I wear a graven image around my neck
    I take his name in vain
    There is only one Sabbath I recognize, and it's not the one in the bible
    I have stolen
    I have coveted
    I eat pork, and it's delicious
    I have taken believers from him
    I have rejected the holy spirit

    I don't have sins, because sins do not exist. Just another creation myth. Live by the laws of the land is good enough.
