If you were to ask the average individual what constitutes sin they would probably say things like “immorality, impurity, drinking bouts, orgies.” St. Paul would not disagree with that. However. when he provides a list of sins besides including those things he seems to be more worried about the irascible side of human nature: “hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy.” When we do our examination of conscience we should pay as much attention to those actions which create discord as we do to acts of concupiscence. As Pope Francis reminded us in his recent encyclical, the plan of God is that we together in peace and harmony. To do otherwise leads to sin as surely as immorality.
