Nevada is the most “sinful state,” while three Southern states and one on the West Coast also rank in the Top 5, according to a new study of state-level crime, vices and sin.
The study by WalletHub ranked all 50 states in seven categories – anger and hatred, jealousy, excesses and vices, greed, lust, vanity, and laziness – and totaled the score for its “most sinful states” ranking.

The “anger and hatred” category included 16 elements, including violent crimes per capita, bullying, shootings, road rage and elder abuse. “Jealousy” involved thefts and fraud, while “excesses and vices” included obesity, excessive drinking, smoking and drug usage. “Greed” constituted gambling, embezzlement and lack of charitable donations; “lust” included internet porn and prostitution. “Vanity” involved beauty salons per capita and Internet searches for plastic surgeries. “Laziness” constituted lack of exercise, number of hours spent watching television, and high school…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
