Point 3. Jealousy is a self-destructive mental attitude and a system of thinking from the Cosmos.

Point 4. Jealousy like many of the mental attitude sins can produce physical sickness as well as mental disorder.

Jealousy belongs to several categories of personal sinning:
The arrogance complex of sins.
The emotional complex of sins.
Since jealousy is defined as unpleasant fear, suspicion, resentment from mistrust of another, it is obvious that jealousy, as a sin, is part of the arrogance complex of sins and the emotional complex of sins.
Bitterness, vindictiveness, implacability, inordinate ambition and competition, revenge motivation, or verbal sins.

b. The hatred category - uncontrollable anger, implacable hatred, bitter resentment, implacable vindictiveness, loathing, animosity, tantrums, violence, murder.
c. The self-centered category which includes self-pity, emotional irrationality, certain expressions of dissatisfaction including gossip, slander, maligning, and other forms of vilification.
