    Wow.....this is the 10th Commandment; Thou shalt not covet.

    Now, from my humble prospective the really hot sins are:

    Thou shall NOT kill.

    Thou shall NOT Steal

    Thou shalt have no other gods before me

    Thou shalt NOT commit adultery.

    But 'COVET'?!?

    Definition of COVET

    1: to wish for earnestly <covet an award>
    2: to desire (what belongs to another) inordinately or culpably

    Come on..... isn't coveting the American way? Dont we even make it a cutesy expression...."Keeping up with the Jones's". Isnt coveting at the heart of who we are....the reason for our competitiveness? Do people really go to hell for that?

    isn't that the specific sin that paul said he got tagged with?

    And satan had this going along with pride?
