One of the most famous Spongebob Squarepants fan theories is the one about how the characters represent the Seven Deadly Sins. This theory has been floating around the internet for a while, and states that each character from the popular Nickelodeon series represents one of the deadly sins outlined in the Bible. The famous seven deadly sins are described in Proverbs, Chapter 6, and Galatians, Chapter 5. They are Gluttony, Lust, Sloth, Greed, Wrath, Envy, and Pride.
Given how adult jokes in Spongebob Squarepants are aplenty, it should come as no surprise that the seemingly childish show has deeper and darker roots. How does each character match up with the Seven Deadly Sins? Is there even evidence to back up every connection? Whether it is true or not, the SpongeBob Squarepants deadly sins theory is certainly fun to consider. Read on below to consider the dark sides of humanity personified by your favorite SpongeBob characters over the show's run.
