His main sins are Envy and Pride,with a sprinkle of Gluttony.
I agree that pride is the ultimate sin. I believe it is the one sin from which all other sins derive. So I tend to leave it out of the calculus in this equation because it all relateds back to that, which leaves six others to choose from. I believe his Envy is what makes him truly toxic. You can be prideful and not slip into the other sins. By adding in Envy Ralph becomes a stew of nastiness waiting to erupt like a boil.Pride. Pride is the root cause of many, many sins, especially with Ethan. Pride and personal insecurities are tied together closely and Ralph's insecurities drive his issues with pride.
Ethan, in the basest levels of his consciousness, feels deeply insecure about who he is and how he appears in public. His reaction to this is to puff and posture like a rooster to compensate. The incongruity between how he wants to be seen and how he knows he is seen leads to great internal shame, embarrassment, and sadness; feelings that he drowns in caloric alcohol and smothers with unhealthy food. In this way, his pride is his source of his gluttony.
Pride, and someone challenging that Pride, lead to Ethan's displays of wroth. Anger is a natural feeling and it can have legitimate manifestations such as "righteous anger." When Jesus saw the moneychangers at the temple, he was filled with righteous anger, but not wroth. Wroth is unbridled, unrestricted anger, above and beyond what is reasonable. When someone "sees red" and strikes out against anyone and anything in his reach, that is wroth and Ethan frequently indulges in it. His weekly tantrums and tendency to end relationships over petty trifles are examples of his wroth.
One effect of Pride is that it separates us, not only from receiving God's grace, but from our families, our friends, our spouses, and from our neighbors. Pride warps a person's mind in to believing that they are above, that they are greater than others, that they are not what they are but that they are more. In addition to separating us from God and our fellow man it also causes people to think that they're above cultural and societal norms and morals. It leads us to think of ourselves, and our needs and wants, first before all else. In this way we can see that pride leads to lust, "I want to fornicate, I am great, therefore fornicating is great and I should do it." It works more or less the same way with envy, greed, and sloth.
I don't think that Ethan is unique in his issues with Pride. Personally speaking, I struggle with it constantly and I know it is a common stumbling block for others as well. I know that this is KF and this is what we do but I don't believe it's my place to judge Ethan, ascribe mortal sins to him, or say that his sin is greater than my own or anything, that is for God. God's mercy is great, so great that he can, does, and will forgive all manner and magnitude of sin for the truly penitent and remorseful. Think about how much mercy and forgiveness you want God to have for you; that is the amount we should have for others and for Ethan. All I can say for sure is that Ethan deals with grave matters constantly, and he consistently places himself in environments that provide a near occasion to sin. I pray that God builds his faith, that he reconciles with our Lord, and that he changes his behavior in the future.
That's the Catholic in me, don't get mad about me moralfagging, this thread kind of invited it. The Farmer in me knows that Ethan probably won't change, and I can't stop watching the results.
The two guys not facing the camera are Rand and Dingo the most loyal of Ralph’s Disciples.Alright A-logs, then answer me this: if Ralph's so impure, then how come his sacrifice led to such a bountiful harvest, huh?
Ralph was a righteous man, but he took on the burden of our sins so that we could be mirthful for eternity. Basically he's kind of like Jesus if he really heavily abused his divine gift of multiplying food and turning water into wine.

You have displeased the GUnity, spreading lies about my shart throughout the wasteland. Mockery is death. Join us or die.
i think ralphs biggest sin is being a cock loving faggot.The thing about the sins, when you think about them in humanity, is when you stop giving a shit about regulating one, you tend to fall into all of them. But, unpopular opinion, I think lust is Ralph's deepest, root sin. Not sexual lust exclusively. A lust for power.
Think about it, from his shitty, rushed writing that hasn't changed in half a decade, to his constant need to dunk on people who he's even close with on a personal level. It's not envy, nor is it wrath, or pure sexual lust for the sake of gratification. That ignores how Ralph has evolved. When Ralph witnesses something, I personally believe he immediately views himself as the one with his hands on the levers, with his head in the crown. Whether it's the same sort of Trump factor that stems from an eternal lust, that'll never be sated, for pleasing your demonic father, or it's his way of keeping himself motivated; preventing the gnawing thoughts at the back of his consciousness, his being, from taking hold. I think lust, desire, is what drives Ralph into all the other sinful camps.
Hell, Ralph's gotta be at the age, not to mention health, where his libido's failing, yet he's still going like he was a teenager. Hats off to this cross-bread of slaanesh and nurgle.
To be fair I'd also run away if the IP2 guys were near.Men form Friendships around insulting each other, the Gunt has clearly never had close male friends which explains why he is always trying to hang out with girl streamers and he runs away when IP2 guys are near.
What. In. God's. Good. Earth?!What sin would his child porn escapades fall under? I almost wanted to file it under lust and be done with it. But the fact that he and Warski infiltrated a child porn ring, downloaded child porn, edited it so they could show it on stream, and bragged about it to the point where it tipped off members of that ring
