Studying Samael's book: THE MAJOR MYSTERIES.
in chapter 21--Preparation for Initiations Samael writes:

"...the entrance to the abyss has three doors: anger, covetousness, and lust. Anger disguises itself as a judge, covetousness is hidden in good intentions, and lust wears a mystical robe."

I find this teaching most direct and penetrating, but I have a question:
Of all the Seven Deadly Sins why does Samael highlight these three psychology defects?

The reason I ask the above question is because one of my chief egos is pride. But sometimes when I am able to look deeply into an incident of my pride I see the root defect as being envy.
So Samael's writing lead me to think that possibly the Seven Deadly Sins can be simplified into three chief sins--being anger, covetousness and lust. Could this be the case? Or am I reading to much into it?
