      types of sins and temptations

      This is in verses 15-17 of 1 John 2
      15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

      Would you say that these sins: the love of the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life are the main sins that influence people today or the categories that they represent? I notice there seems to be parallels with the temptations of Christ. That Satan first tempted Jesus with having the stones turn to bread, and then challenged him to throw himself down from the high pillar and then also tempted him with all the glory of the world and its treasures. Matthew 4:1-11

      Satan also seemed to appeal to Eve's pride when he told her this in Genesis 3
      "Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from [a]any tree of the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” 4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate"

      He told her that she would be like God. In effect, making her equal with God.

      Good short videos here, helps with the translation and meaning of words such as 'sin' and 'transgressions'
      Worth a watch IMO
