Added DiffLines:

* SevenDeadlySins: Throughout the episode, Homer is shown to be succumbing to the seven deadly sins:
** Sloth: Homer misses church in order to sleep in and lounge around the house, and is shown to be very reluctant to get out of bed.
** Gluttony: Homer uses an entire stick of butter in his moon waffle.
** Greed: Homer finds a penny and declares it to be the best day of his life, dwarfing his wedding day and the day he danced in a rain of beer.
** Wrath: Homer slams his hands on the wheel of his car in anger when he fails to lose Ned in the car chase.
** Envy: Homer is upset that Marge always takes someone else's side, including Flanders, the water department, and God.
** Lust: Homer reads Playdude on the couch, and tries to pressure Marge into "coming to bed" whilst she is praying.
** Pride: Homer invents a new religion that caters to his own whims. Just as Pride is often believed to be the source of the other deadly sins, in this case, Homer's pride in creating his own religion also led to him committing the other sins. In addition, Homer's pride manifests verbally when he says "Everyone is stupid except me," directly after which his house catches fire. This is the last of the seven sins that he commits, and the fire immediately afterwards can be considered a punishment for his continued sinning.

* TalkingInYourSleep: Homer does this as the fire spreads through the house, muttering, "Marge, turn down the heat. [nothing happens] That's better." He doesn't wake up until the fire singes his two hairs.

* BigDamnHeroes: Ned breaks into the house while it's on fire to rescue Homer and get him out before the fire department arrives.
* BigNo: Ned in the burning house when, while trying to carry Homer out, a burning beam falls in his path and blocks off the front door.
* BigYes: Homer, when the public affairs program he is watching is interrupted by a football game.
* ByNoIMeanYes: Marge asks Homer if he is actually giving up his faith when he announces he is never going to church again. He denies it, then admits he ''is'' giving up his faith.



* OhCrap: The ''flipping TV'' gets one. The TV in Homer's dream flashes "Uh-Oh!" on its screen before God reaches down and removes the house's roof.
** Homer gets a big one when he wakes up and sees the house is on fire.



* RealityEnsues: Homer [[TooDumbToLive falls asleep with a lit cigar in his mouth]]. It ignites the magazines on the floor and eventually the whole house is engulfed in flames.



* SayMyName: Ned yells Homer's name twice through the living room window, trying to wake him up, before breaking into the house to rescue him.



* SkewedPriorities: Apu stops the fire truck en route to the Simpsons' house as a line of ducks crosses the street in front of him. Bear in mind he's in the middle of racing to the Simpson house, which is on fire.



* TalkingInYourSleep: Homer does this as the fire spreads through the house, muttering, "Marge, turn down the heat. [nothing happens] That's better." He doesn't wake up until the fire singes his two hairs.



* TooDumbToLive: Homer left oily food, cans of beer, magazines and electric wires lying around the couch he was laying on before going to sleep with a lit cigar in his mouth, that's a recipe for a house fire. Ultimately subverted, as Ned saves him and the multi-faith fire department saves his house.

** Homer wakes up, [[OhCrap sees the fire burning all around him]] and, not knowing what to do in case of fire, sings a song to try and help him remember. It doesn't work and he passes out.

* ShaggyFrogStory: "Kids, let me tell you about another so-called wicked guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. [[JesusChrist And that man's name was]]... I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?"

* KickTheDog: When Krusty appears at the door on Sunday collecting donations for a Jewish clown charity directed at helping the families of 75 Jewish clowns killed when a tornado hit their convention center, Homer cuts off Krusty and closes the door after derisively asking if it's "a religious thing" and finding out it was; Krusty wasn't trying to convert Homer, he was seeking a charity donation.
