Was doing research for book I'm about to read, "Wicked Appetite" by Janet Evanovich. It's about search for seven stones that represent the Seven Deadly Sins.
Knowing 10 Commandments, I wondered if there's some relationship between the commandments & sins. Was able to match only some commandments with sins. Can anybody match the ones that remain (1 - 4), here are my notes:
1. Shall not have other gods beside Me
2. Shall not use My name in vain
3. Remember to keep God’s day holy
4. Honor father and mother
5. Shall not kill
6. Shall not commit adultery (no sexually cheating with someone already married)
7. Shall not steal
8. Shall not lie
9. Shall not covet (have the hots for) neighbor’s wife
10. Shall not covet (desire) neighbor’s goods
Seven Deadly Sins
Lust: craving for sex, power & money (relates to commandment 6)
Gluttony: desire to eat or consume more than you require (relates to commandment)
Greed: desire for material wealth or gain (relates to commandment 7)
Sloth: laziness & avoidance of work (relates to commandment)
Wrath: loss of rational self-control & desire to harm others (relates to commandment 5)
Envy: wanting what others have (relates to commandments 9 and 10)
Pride: excessive belief in one’s own abilities (relates to commandment 8)
Envy vs. Greed
Envy's desire for what someone else has; want it for yourself because that person has it. Sometimes even want to take it in order to destroy it, not keep it.
Envy's jealousy, greed's simple desire11 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago
It was a movie in which a group of friends, in school, find an envelope supposedly with the answer to a test.
The teacher then finds them, and panicking, one of the friends says that they didn't look into the envelope.
The following are lines that continue after this:
"What envelope?" - teacher
"Envelope? Did I say envelope?" - friend
"Are you feeling alright?" - teacher
When the group walks into class the next day, they find that everyone has been squirted, or something, with I can't remember what. The friends in the group are the only ones who were still clean. We find out that there were no answers in the envelope. The test was actually to resist the temptation of looking in the envelope.1 AnswerMovies5 years ago
Yesterday, my family and I saw a strange bug here, in Miami.
It was a yellow, furry, three-legged, non-flying bug about the size of a cockroach. We saw it at a yacht club, so there were salt water and sand in the area, and it was stormy.
Any idea what bug this could be?2 AnswersZoology7 years ago
In Naruto, why is it that everyone's after Sasuke's Uchiha power, yet don't even bother with Naruto's Nine-Tail Fox power?
The only hint of caring for his power was during the first mission, when someone messed with the seal. Other than that, there was no other sign of caring.
The Fox's power is also powerful, and unique. Sasuke and Naruto's power are somewhat the same in this idea of uniqueness: Sasuke's the last Uchiha, and there's only one Nine-Tail Fox, the one inside Naruto5 AnswersComics & Animation7 years ago

Monster attacks to punish. Younger sibling monster’s next target. Older sibling faces monster with friends, monster she was once the target of.
Adults unaware of monster?
Are they monster exterminators?
- They fight monsters
Ex-target hunter stole from friends (emergency) as monster reveals.
- Test of friendship
Now what I need help with is why did she steal from her friends? She wasn't being mean or anything, she had a good reason for it. Her friends though get mad at her for stealing from them. Any ideas?2 AnswersBooks & Authors8 years ago

Has anyone ever heard of not being able to wear earrings, none at all? I had my ears pierced in January and a few weeks ago my ear piercing (turns out the other ear piercing never closed) got infected. I kept it clean with anti-septic and applied antibiotic multiple times a day. It got better and so I put the earrings back in. As soon as I did that it got infected again.
Since I was a baby I couldn't wear any other material than gold. When I got my ears pierced again a few years ago I started also wearing surgical steel, which btw is used along with the gold earrings of new piercings to lock the earring in place. These two materials are obviously supposed to be safe, yet I can't even use those materials anymore.
Could it be that my body will no longer let me get ear piercings? That maybe it thinks of it as a harmful?6 AnswersOther - General Health Care8 years ago
Before I ask the question, I want to let you know that I don't want anyone giving opinions, especially about the Republicans, Democrats, whatever. I just want to understand the situation.
So what exactly is this Fiscal Cliff situation about? I was just reading an article about it and it appears to be something to do with taxes.
Also, I read that they HAVE to come up with a new bill every four years or so. My question there is...Why? If the bill we have is working, why not keep it? Why do we have to create a new one?4 AnswersGovernment8 years ago
My family is always complaining that I re-watch movies a million times. I'll maybe watch a movie and then re-watch it a few days later, but it's not as though I watch it every day or even multiple times a day.
My family seems to believe that a movie is meant to be watched only once. But isn't the point of a movie to entertain? So therefore, what's so wrong with wanting to re-watch a movie?20 AnswersPolls & Surveys9 years ago
My aunt seems to not be getting enough rest lately, because my five year old cousin won't sleep, or is having trouble sleeping. I advised Alexandra (my cousin) to maybe, when trying to fall asleep, try to imagine and make up her own dream, such as maybe she and her friends playing in the park. But she said she only gets nightmares, and my aunt said Alex spends the night pinching herself. Now I'm starting to think the problem is not that Alex can't sleep, but rather that she is avoiding sleep because of the nightmares. What can be done so that Alex can sleep?3 AnswersToddler & Preschooler9 years ago
I had studied two years at a university until I failed a class last spring and started suffering from depression. Now I'm doing better, and before returning to the university, I'm going to get an AA at a community college. I had gone to see two advisers. Apart from the few classes I need, one of them said that I needed to take a total of 15 credits at the college in order to graduate, while the other said I only needed the few classes. Who can I talk to at the college? Who will have a better idea of what I need to do? Who plans out all these degree requirements?1 AnswerHigher Education (University +)9 years ago
