The Deadly Sins
pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth
Something archaic and fun? Outdated?
If a man or a woman pursues any of the deadly sins as a goal, it will lead to death.
E.g. Anger if pursued can lead to death. Spiritual death, mental death and perhaps their bodily death. Rage can kill.
If pursued any of the deadly sins will eventually lead to death; spiritual, mental and perhaps physical.
The deadly sins are enticing you as fake gods wanting your attention. Of course you can say yes to them, and if you make them a persistent goal this will lead to your death. This means it will lead to misery and abuse of others and yourself. Say yes to God instead. Say yes to Love instead. Do this by working for the benefit of yourself and others, and pray to God for the grace (His Love) to do this. God loves us and wants us to live with Love which will lead to willing service of others. Choose Life, not Death. There is happiness in choosing Life. Is it not your choice? If you say it is not, who or what is choosing for you? And if you have no choice, no direction of your own life, then I'd say you have no life and remain a slave. You might have been told that you can't choose Life, but you can. Do it and do it everyday. God will help you.
