Which seven deadly sins are you? I bet their lives at least one sin inside of you! Just as it is inside all of us. The list of 7 sins goes as following
That is not the exact order, but that is how I imagine them. No matter whether you are a religious person or not, these are the qualities we all have inside, at least to some point. You may not see them as sins, though.
I wonder which of these characteristics do you believe are sins? Do you truly believe sloth is? What about lust? Please, leave your opinions and lists in the comments section below!
Personally, I think that all these characteristics are natural in humans. It becomes an issue when you indulge in them and go overboard. Is it sin, then? Debatable! But let’s leave such debates for religious groups and studies.
Overall, this is an interesting concept people believe in. I’m more interested in how these traits were chosen in the first place? Why these seven? Let’s take a closer look at them before this 7 deadly sins quiz.
Pride can be harmful in the wrong hands. Clinic narcissism strongly revolved around pride and egocentrism. And we all know how toxic narcissists can be. Pride becomes a dangerous quality when taken to extremes, both to the person and their close surroundings.
Greed is a negative quality; that’s the universal truth. Greedy people are shunned by most nationalities and religions. There is nothing pleasant about a greedy person. In times of enormous social gaps between rich and poor, the distaste is heightened.
Envy is a toxic trait for the carrier beforehand. When you are envious, it feels like you are rotting inside. It eats you alive. There is no harm to the surrounding people, but your mental health is in peril!
Hot-headed explosive people may reach a limit where their sanity is compromised. Rage is an unreliable emotion and, sometimes, makes people do despicable things that they would never do when calm. This is a dangerous sin for third parties as well.
In the ancient times of the great influence of religion, lust and sex were not discussed and publicly frowned upon. Behind the closed doors, beds saw many explicit situations; there’s no doubt. It’s hard to believe that something so strongly present in our nature can be a sin.
I find that gluttony may be an incorrect notice. Why not include “indulgence” as a whole? Not only food and drinks are tempting us. Actually, gluttony may have similar roots to greed, don’t you think so?
I’m a huge sloth. Thus, I cannot put this sin to the top of wrongful sins. Yes, laziness is a negative characteristic, and you should learn to eliminate it, but is it so sinful? Let’s discuss?
I hope to see more discussion on the topic and to hear What Seven Deadly Sin Are You?
