7 Deadly Sins

Standard

I really don’t know why the 7 deadly sins intrigue me so.

I always thought they were listed as such in the bible, but alas, they are not. But the catholic faith has conveniently packaged them up in a pretty bundle along with the 7 heavenly virtures and the 7 sacraments. All with the magical mystical number 7 entwined.

Greed: Very Low
Gluttony: Low
Wrath: Low
Sloth: Low
Envy: Very Low
Lust: Very Low
Pride: Medium

”In Christianity, the seven deadly sins are considered “deadly” because it is believed they can do terrible damage to the soul. The now-famous list does not appear in the Bible and may have been formulated by Gregory the Great (540–604). The deadly sins are sometimes known as “capital” or “cardinal” sins: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, anger, and sloth.”

Ok I’m done, this is pretty crazy stuff  but enjoy!

I find that much like anything else {that has to do with God} that should be taken seriously, the world turns it around to mock it or diminish it.

Any comments on what the 7 deadly sins mean to you?
