Seven Deadly Sins

Seven "cardinal" sins, not so bad in and of themselves but which could lead you to more serious things.

It is traditional in the Catholic church to refer to the "Seven Deadly Sins", and the "Seven Cardinal Virtues".

Actually, in Christian scripture, "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23); all sins tend toward death and are thus deadly. These are the "Seven Capital Sins", from the Latin caput, "head". These are classically considered the headwaters of all other sins.

What do people think about Apathy and SelfDeceit, are these not as big as at least Gluttony?

I think one could make an argument that apathy is the root of sloth and that SelfDeceit may be a special case of pride.

And Gluttony seems a little soft as far as great sins of man go ... but then again, Unbridled Consumption is a pretty ugly thing in any form.

{Yeah, gluttony isn't just about eating too much. It's also about SUV drivers.}
