    Question The Seven Deadly Sins

    We all know, even if we aren't religious at all, about the Seven Deadly Sins. Now, aside for us going to hell, if that wasn't a concern for some of us who are religious, what would you choose as your favourite deadily sin and why? Below are the names and descriptions of each sin, incase you didnt know what they were.
    (Vice = Sin, Virtue = What counteracts the sin)

    Vice: Pride
    Virtue: Humility
    Seeing ourselves as we are and not comparing ourselves to others is humility. Pride and vanity are competitive. If someone else's pride really bothers you, you have a lot of pride.

    Vice: Envy
    Virtue: Love

    "Love is patient, love is kind…" Love actively seeks the good of others for their sake. Envy resents the good others receive or even might receive. Envy is almost indistinguishable from pride at times.

    Vice: Wrath/Anger
    Virtue: Kindness

    Kindness means taking the tender approach, with patience and compassion. Anger is often our first reaction to the problems of others. Impatience with the faults of others is related to this.

    Vice: Sloth
    Virtue: Zeal

    Zeal is the energetic response of the heart to God's commands. The other sins work together to deaden the spiritual senses so we first become slow to respond to God and then drift completely into the sleep of complacency.

    Vice: Avarice/Greed
    Virtue: Generosity

    This is about more than money. Generosity means letting others get the credit or praise. It is giving without having expectations of the other person. Greed wants to get its "fair share" or a bit more.

    Vice: Gluttony
    Virtue: Faith and Temperance

    Temperance accepts the natural limits of pleasures and preserves this natural balance. This does not pertain only to food, but to entertainment and other legitimate goods, and even the company of others.

    Vice: Lust
    Virtue: Self-Control

    Self control and self mastery prevent pleasure from killing the soul by suffocation. Legitimate pleasures are controlled in the same way an athlete's muscles are: for maximum efficiency without damage. Lust is the self-destructive drive for pleasure out of proportion to its worth. Sex, power, or image can be used well, but they tend to go out of control.

    Re: The Seven Deadly Sins

    I would say mine is Envy, it always has been, always will be. Its a sin I never seen in action before, and I always found it fun to watch people go out of there way with Envy.

    Envy is over all the best, because it can be mistaken as all of them, at the end of the day.

    I think I get Pride and Envy mixed up a lot.

    Re: The Seven Deadly Sins

    My sins would be all of them because nobody is a prefect human being. If you say that you don't commit any of those deadly seven sins you are lying.

    Hey ketaro,

    She's asking which ones your Favorite, not which one you are.

    I think everyone has a great understanding that we have all use these 7 sins in are daily life.

    So just tell her which one, that makes you think.

    Re: The Seven Deadly Sins

    I made this post, and I didn't even post what sin was my favourite hah. I think it would be Pride seeing that everyone has a bit of it, no matter what they do, especially when we were children.

    Pride can control you if you let it get too far ahead of yourself, and once it does, not many people will really want to be around you cause you're always comparing yourself to others, and trying to one-up them each time so that you feel better about yourself.
