    Why is sloth considered a sin?

    Can doing nothing make you a sinner? How and why can it make you a sinner? What does the Bible say about sloth?

    because most people do not understand a sloth.    But a sloth is quite intelligent though slow, the way God made him.    They are excellent swimmers, fearless fighter when attacked and unlike most of us they do what they were designed by God to do.

    According to dictionaries, sloth is a word meaning slow.   But being slow is not a Sin, there are NO references in scripture to sloth.

    According to scripture, doing anything to excess and avoiding doing the necessary things required by Christ for His disciples is a terrible thing and can cause you to miss eternal life.

      There is nothing Wrong with your question, I did not mean to offend you and do not disagree.   I just wanted people to appreciate the sloth they are a neat animal we have here in Central America and fun to watch

      Sorry for not making my question more clear
      I mean sloth from the seven capital sins, not the animal

      there is no such thing as capital sins in scripture, that is catholic church doctrine  in the church of Jesus Christ all sins are equal, a sin is a sin   there is only one sin that is greater and can not be forgiven, blasphemy of the Holy Spirit

      I believe what you said are all true that all sins are equal and blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is an unforgivable sin. But the question is about lazyness or sloth and somehow I don't get it why it is considered sin that's why Im asking Brother Charlie
