The 67 deadly sins of the New Testament.

Pastor William Nathaniel Sampson

I wanted to create this list as a practical guide to sin and the New Testament. We get a lot of unsaved here claiming that that Old Testament doesn’t apply. If you fall into this category, this is for you. Here are the 67 sins for you to avoid from the New Testament only, you fluffy bunny cafeteria Christian. We also get our share of Catholics who like to wax about the seven deadly sins. It’s not seven It’s closer to 100x that amount, but if you only want to look at what the New Testament says, this thread is also for you.
If you are a True Believing right with God Christian like myself, this information is probably not for you as I didn’t include the Old Testament’s other 600 or so ordinances.

The 67 Deadly Sins of the New Testament.
Starting with Galatians 5:19-21. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; 1 Adultery, 2 fornication, 3 uncleanness, 4 lasciviousness,
5 Idolatry, 6 witchcraft, 7 hatred, 8 variance, 9 emulations, 10 wrath, 11 strife, 12 seditions, 13 heresies,
14 Envyings, 15 murders, 16 drunkenness, 17 revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

17 deadly sins here to start it off. Next Romans 1:26-32.

Here is a big list.For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Homosexuality both male and female. One more to add. 18 deadly sins.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all 19 unrighteousness, fornication, 20 wickedness, 21 covetousness, 22 maliciousness; full of envy, murder, 23 debate, 24 deceit, 25 malignity; 26 whisperers, 27 Backbiters, 28 haters of God, 29 despiteful, 30 proud, 31 boasters, 32 inventors of evil things, 33 disobedient to parents, 34 Without understanding, 35 covenantbreakers, 36 without natural affection, 37 implacable, 38 unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

I counted three that were covered in Galatians fornication, envy and murder. I count 20 more here. Now our deadly sins list is up to 38. Notice the penalty here not only includes people who do these things, but those who tolerate and coddle sinners.1 Timothy 1:9-10

Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the 39 lawless and disobedient, 40 for the ungodly and 41 for sinners, 42 for unholy and profane, 43 for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For 44 whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, 45for menstealers, 46 for liars, 47 for perjured persons, 48 and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
There’s 10 more. Homosexuals and murderers were included already, but father and mother murderers weren’t covered, so I’m keeping it. Honestly, it’s not that I don’t want to renumber the entire thing.

You could make the case that liars is covered under deceit, but I believe someone can be deceitful and not lie. “Any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.” That’s a nice blanket sin there.

That’s 48 deadly sins according to Paul, so far.

Now let’s add Apocalypse of John the Divine.

Revelation 21:8 But the 49 fearful, and 50 unbelieving, and 51 the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and 52 sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Murderers, whoremongers, idolaters and liars were already covered. I count four more types of sinners going to burn in the lake of fire. 52 deadly sins by my count.

Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but 53 whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Calling someone a fool. That’s another deadly sin. That’s 53 for you scoring at home.

Matthew 5:28, 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.


But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Looking at a woman with lust in your heart and divorce. 55 deadly sins.

Matthew 19:18-19
[..]If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, 56 Thou shalt not steal, 57 Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Honour thy father and thy mother: and, 58 Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Murder, adultery and disobedience toward parents have been covered already, so that’s three more. That is 58 deadly sins.

Ephesians 5:3-7, 18 Neither 59 filthiness, 60 nor foolish talking, 61 nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
And 62 do not be drunk with wine, which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit

I found four more from Paul. That’s 62 deadly sins. Back to Gospel verses I forgot.

Mark 7:21-22 For from within, out of the heart of men, 63 proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, 64 an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, 65 foolishness:

I’m going to allow foolishness even though it is similar to foolish talking, because they are different to me. 65 deadly sins.

2 Corinthians 12:20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, 66 swellings, 67 tumults:

That is now 67 deadly sins according to the New Testament.

Elmer G. White (18-12-2018 08:54 AM): If you read the verse before the one you mentioned in Timothy, you see that Paul had just mentioned elders. Do you think possibly he is commanding public shaming of elders who are sinning? 1 Timothy ...
