Seven Deadly Sins
The Seven Deadly Sins is a classification of objectionable vices that have been used since early Christian times to educate and instruct followers. The currently recognized version of the list is usually given as Envy, Pride, Wrath, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, and Sloth. These sins are considered deadly because they are seen as the origin of the other sins and vices.
