Pride

Pride is fragrance of the seven deadly sins; it touches them all. In this message we explore how to identify and deal with what  Augustine called the “sin underneath all the other sins.”

Greed

Wealth and possessions deceive us into believing that our hope can rest in them. However Jesus, the author of life, said that life is not found in the abundance of possessions. The gospel message frees us from this pursuit and enables us to be “rich toward God”.

Gluttony

Of the Seven Deadly Sins, gluttony seems like the least deadly. However, we learn from Joshua, Jesus, and our early church fathers what happens when something minor becomes desire.

Gluttony

In this message, we discover that gluttony is far more nuanced than we realized. We learn what gluttony is, how to recognize it in our own life, and how to treat this dangerous sin.

Greed

Greed, the love of and desire for material possessions, affects all of us. And while having wealth is not a sin in an of itself, allowing greed to have its way in our lives ultimately blinds us to our need for God and the needs of those around us. Moreover, our greed reveals a deeper heart problem that only Christ can solve.

In this message, we discuss pride…which has the distinction of being both the most destructive and most invisible of the sins.  We learn how to diagnose pride in our own lives, and how to treat it.

Sloth

Summary: Fighting sloth means that we need to close the gap between who we say that we are and who we really are. Jesus teaches us that through a lesson with the Disciples.

In this message, we learn that the sin of sloth probably isn’t what we thought it was.  We discover what sloth is, how to diagnose it in our own lives, and how to treat this deadly sin.
