Need Some Help
I am really working on the companion piece to go with this one. The material is cut.
My question comes to which word is more common - and I have no clue.
The Sins are - Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed, Sloth.
But sometimes Pride is Vanity.
I can use either word - all the letters I need are in this design to do either word - but which is normal or more common??? And I understand depending on the bible version or religion or maybe just the United States version versus the European version might be more common one way or the other. But I have no clue, and since you ladies are from all over the world - you are my best source -
Again - Anger is sometimes listed at Wrath. Which is more common? To me the bible used the term - God's Wrath - I don't know if they were talking about anybody else's Wrath - or if everybody else was just Anger - so I am not sure which word to use. Again, the letters used in this design will fit either word. "W" isn't used, but I can flip the "M" and get a "W" that will work.
That's the questions....
Pride Or Vanity???
Anger Or Wrath???
Just for fun - Greed is sometimes listed as Avarice or Covetousness. I am NOT using those words, Greed works just fine for me.
The Pride versus Vanity question. I get a bit hung up on the whole Pride and Prejudice thing. We all take some pride in the stitching we do, the way we cook, our work, your family, your children... I am having a bit of a problem seeing it AS a sin - and I understand it was supposed to be a bad thing in the Pride and Prejudice story. But is it? Vanity I can see as a bad thing - During a job interview I would certainly say I take Pride in my work or have Pride in my work - and think that was a good quality. But Vanity - I think I lost that years ago, and I haven't met anybody seemed to be Vain...? Vane...? to have a big Vanity problem. Vanity - isn't that where a fancy woman sits to put on her makeup??? Not a deadly sin... So I am totally lost on which word to use.
I had to read up on religion - I wasn't sure if these were Mortal Sins or Deadly Sins - But Deadly Sins seems to be that answer. Mortal Sins seem to have more to do with the specifics of intent. But I could be wrong.
So really, which word would you use???
Pride or Vanity???
Anger or Wrath???
